KS1840CKT: Black Shallot - Plain Edge
Kershaw® Knives

This is No Ordinary Onion.

The shallot onion is one of the world’s favorite ways to spice up a cuisine. And the all-stainless-steel Kershaw Shallot, designed by Ken Onion, is destined to spice up your knife collection.

For this one, we’ve peeled away the layers, leaving nothing but superb form, keen function, and pure stainless-steel. The Shallot features a Sandvik 13C26 recurve blade. The unique recurve blade design provides for low mass and high performance, while the 13C26 steel offers excellent hardness, corrosion, and wear resistance. This high-carbon chromium steel provides for a high quality blade ideal for a wide range of both everyday and extraordinary tasks.

This exceptional blade is partnered with a sleek stainless-steel handle designed for a sure, ergonomic grip. The handle is built of 410 stainless-steel—hardened and tempered to provide maximum strength. For safety, there’s a convenient frame lock to secure the blade in position until you choose to releases it. Both blade and handle are polished to a steely matte-gray finish. Or, if you prefer the dark, choose the Black Shallot, with a smooth or partially serrated blade featuring a Tungsten DLC (diamond like carbon) coating.

The Shallot features our SpeedSafe® assisted opening system with ambidextrous index-finger opening. Just pull back on the blade protrusion with the index finger of either the left or right hand. The SpeedSafe® system then moves the blade out of the handle and smoothly and easily into position, ready for use.

The Shallot is a pocket-perfect 4-3/8 inches closed and weighs just 4.2 ounces. It is made in the USA and built to uphold Kershaw’s high standards of quality and performance. Like the tasty shallot it’s named for, the Kershaw Shallot is sure to make your mouth water for more.

I got this knife for my boyfriend for our anniversary and he loves it. It's the perfect size to carry around on a daily basis with an incredibly sharp blade. He loves everything about it. It looks great, feels good in your hand and is easy to open and close. I work definitely recommend this knife for anyone.

Cons: Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Very useful for my everyday
I bought this to step up my leek as my EDC knife. The handle and opening mechanism are outstanding. Incredibly sharp and stays sharp for a decent amount of time. The only downside I have with it is the frailty of the tip as with most Kershaws but it is worth it for the quality of the blade as a whole. Just don't do a lot of piercing with it. Even though I have a decent selection of every day carry knives, I tend to lean more towards this one for work and walking around town.

Great Knife
This is my EDC but it's so sleek and the finish is so nice I try not to abuse it too much. However I find beauty in function as well and this knife will not let you down. I might just buy a second to ensure I always have this knife in my collection. It has some heft and opens quickly and smoothly, with a little kick to it, but just the right amount. The clip is sturdy, removable and reversible however only on one face. The presentation face is unencumbered by the extra holes. There is absolutely no play in this blade, it feels remarkably solid. Comes sharp, not razor, but good enough I don't feel the need to sharpen it. One handed closing isn't as easy as some knives, but very doable. Its size and slimness make it a great EDC if you're not looking for something extra light weight. Handel would be better if I had smaller hands, but the grip is secure and I would not want it any longer.
