Scallion Folding Knife -
Kershaw's Ken Onion Scallion offers high-performance styling and all the convenience of the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system in a slightly larger knife. It's ideal for everyday carrying. The blade is built of high-carbon 420HC stainless steel for good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. For lighter weight, the Scallion series features anodized aluminum or polyimide handles. All Scallions include a secure liner lock to keep the blade securely in place until the user closes it and a Safety Tip Lock to keep the blade stored in the handle.

Sandvik 13C26 -
Made of martensitic stainless chromium steel. After heat treatment the steel grade is characterized by high hardness, good corrosion resistance, and very good wear resistance. It is used mainly for razor blades, but is also the standard grade for surgical knives and for different types of industrial knives for the food industry.

Liner Lock -
Invented by Michael Walker, uses a leaf spring type liner within the groove of the handle that snaps into position under the blade when it is deployed.

Ambidextrous -
Described as able to use both the right and left hands with equal dexterity. Person is both, right and left handed.

Removable Pocket Clip -
This feature allows for tip up or tip down carry, or the clip can be removed completely.

What is SpeedSafe?
SpeedSafe is a patented system that assists the user to smoothly open any SpeedSafe knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion. SpeedSafe is built into many of Kershaw's best-selling knives.

How does SpeedSafe work?
The heart of SpeedSafe is its torsion bar. Closed, the torsion bar helps keep the knife closed, preventing it from being opened by "gravity." In order to open the knife, the user must apply manual pressure to the thumb stud or blade protrusion to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half-moon track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position, ready for use.

How safe is SpeedSafe?
Very, SpeedSafe opens ONLY when the user manually deploys it using either the thumb stud or blade protrusion. Once deployed, a locking system secures the blade in position so that it cannot close accidentally. When releasing the lock, the blade does not snap shut due to resistance provided by the torsion bar. This bar also provides a bias towards the closed position, which holds the blade securely closed. New SpeedSafeĀ® users can ensure safe use of the technology by practicing to proficiency.

5.0 Rating Best knife I have ever had! - 4/29/2008
Reviewer: Spbeyond
I love this knife. Had one for probably almost two years. Daily use, and abuse and the blade is sharp and perfect! Knife flips open fast and is ultra east to use. Only negative is just today the spring mechanisim stoped working so the assist opening no longer works. I love this one so much Im gunna buy two more right now just incase they stop making them at some point.
