Kershaw Knives

The Chive series features Kershaw's SpeedSafe ambidextrous opening system for smooth, easy opening by both right and left-handed users. Closed, the Chive is less than three inches long—perfect for pocket carry. The blade is made of high-carbon 420HC stainless steel for good edge retention, easy resharpening, and excellent toughness. Some also feature high-tech coatings for enhanced performance and aesthetic appeal. The Chive series also offers a variety of handle materials and finishes—Tungsten DLC, Titanium Oxide rainbow, and our "smoked" anodized aluminum finish in three handsome colors. Our newest handle is anodized aluminum in fashionable pink. All Chives also feature the Safety Tip Lock to ensure the blade stays securely inside the handle until the user releases it, and a removable pocket clip for easy carrying. The Chive may be the smallest member of the "Onion" family, but it's got all the advanced features knife users demand.

Cons: None
Simply the best knife
Don't be fooled by this extremely smal knive cutting power. I have cut 4 strand of 3/8 marine nylon cord in a single cut. It is easy to carry, easy to open , nice grip. Easy to love from day one my favorite work knife. I am here to replace my last, lost friend.

Kershaw Chive Review by Dexter Ewing
This is an early review of the Kershaw Chive by Dexter Ewing- writer for Blade magazine This knife is another offering from the dynamic collaboration team of custom maker Ken Onion and Wilsonville, Oregon’s Kershaw Knives. The Chive is a stylish little folder, only about 4.90" overall length. It’s an ideal gentleman’s knife and small and compact enough to function as a money clip. Weighing in at 1.9 ounces, the Chive rides comfortably clipped to the pocket or sitting at the bottom of the pocket as would a traditional pocket knife. The ergonomic handle is machined out of 410 stainless steel, with an integral bar lock. The handle’s surfaces are bead blasted for slight texture. There is a cut out above the pivot to allow the index trigger to sit lower and not protrude too much, yet remain within easy reach to fire the blade. The handle is held together by three Torx® head screws (including the pivot). A steel pocket clip is fastened to the opposite side of the handle to permit ease of carry in the tip down position Width of handle minus clip is 0.295" thick. The Chive’s clip point blade is of 420HC stainless-steel with a hollow grind. Stock thickness is 0.090". The index trigger serves both as an ambidextrous opening aid and as a finger guard when the knife is open. With a simple push on the index trigger, the closed knife quickly springs open using Ken’s own Speed Safe torsion bar technology to propel the blade to an open and locked position. The dual thumb studs serve only as the blade’s positive stop, as they are too small for use as one-hand openers. The notched thumb ramp of the blade provides a secure placement for the index finger or thumb to rest on during use. Overall, this is a neat little folder. The blade’s action is so crisp that you will be tempted to flick the knife over and over! Fit and finish is very good, blade grinds are even, and there is no blade play whatsoever in any direction. ...
