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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
I have carried the larger version of the Kershaw and it is a great knife. Thought this smaller version would be handy, but the SpeedSafe does not work as well as my larger knife. Still overall a good knife with the Ken Onion design.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Material
Not USAmade
I purchased a Kershaw. Initially I was excited but when i recieved it the blade said "China". Emailed the company with no response but I can assume the blade is made in China and its only assembled in the US. Pretty untruthful to say Made in the USA I think. I couldnt return it so I use it and its actually a pretty good for everyday use but still. Needs sharpening frequently
