THE CHIVE JUST MIGHT BE THE PERFECT LITTLE POCKET KNIFE!

With its less-than-two-inch blade, the Chive is a small knife, which makes it perfect for pocket, pack, purse, or briefcase carry. But just because it’s small doesn’t mean the Chive isn’t mighty. In fact, the Chive is perfect for just about any cutting task you’d care to ask it to do—from opening packages to breaking down cardboard boxes.

To ensure this handy little blade is always ready when you need it, the Chive is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready for use.

The high-carbon blade steel offers good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. The bead-blasted finish is easy to maintain. For safety, the Chive has two locking systems. The frame lock secures the blade open so it can’t accidentally close during use. And to ensure that it won’t accidentally open during transport, the Chive is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded. In pure stainless steel, both blade and handle are easy to clean and maintain.
Features
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Single Position - The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.

When I first bought this Kershaw I got it as a blemish. Couldn't find anything wrong and I was looking for a long time, I started carrying the thing and before I New it, it was like I grew a new limb. I just started using it for everything. I'm used to carrying a BUCK 110 , A great knife but I found out that for me it's just a little to big for everyday use. Better in the field. I do not feel uncomfortable pulling this out and people getting nervous by its size. And the edge is unbelievable I've only had to sharpen it a couple of times, it's sharp! And you don't even know you have it in your pocket. The assisted opening is great when you have something in your other hand. I could keep going but I won't Thanx.

My husband had this knife for years, the tip of the blade broke so we sent it to Kershaw and they replaced it free, no questions! He lost it a few months ago and was very happy I bought another one for him at Christmas. It's the perfect knife for comfortably carrying in your pocket, very slim but still strong.
