The Scallion Folding Knife from Kershaw is an all-around great pocketknife and made to handle a variety of jobs. The blade is made out of 420HC, a high-carbon stainless steel with good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. For an easy-to-maintain matte finish, the blade is bead-blasted. The Scallion comes equipped with the innovative SpeedSafe assisted opening system so you can open the blade one-handed. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready to use. A locking steel liner secures the blade when open and is easy to close for storage. A Tip-Lock builds an extra safety option during transport. Simply move the slider built into the handle to help guard against accidental opening. Made in the USA.
