KS1600VIB: Ken Onion Rainbow Chive
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. 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.

Best pocket knife ever.
I received this as a gift from my wife over 10 years ago. At first I was taken aback by the "girly" colors. Since I have no problems about my manhood though, I put that aside. This is one of the best gifts ever. I have NEVER had to sharpen it! I have owned a few other major brands and have never experienced this high quality. The colors, from titanium coating, always garner comments of a good nature and I am proud to "whip it out". I would recommend this to anyone. The ONLY negative is the lock for the blade is a little bit hard to move over when closing the knife after using it in a rough manner. It is like it locks itself even harder as you use it. I have never had a problem closing the blade though. I just wanted to be totally honest about the knife.
