Black Chive Plain Edge

Another of the ever popular Chive Knives, this beauty comes with a polished Tungsten DLC coated blade for incredibly long lasting strength. Mistreat, misuse and abuse this blade, it will not break, unless you roll over it with a steamroller. The blade will serve you for years to come and stay super sharp during all that time.

Plus the handle is trës cool. Its midnight black in color and super shiny for a very popular effect. It makes an excellent knife to keep in your collection or just to keep around the house.

No need to fear that blade will ever slip out of place with its special frame lock The frame lock will lock the blade into place when folded open and keep it on place until you close it. Simply press down on the spring loaded lock and easily fold the blade back into place. The blade will also remain closed, so you don’t have to worry about it ‘accidentally’ popping open in your pockets or your hands.

Frame Lock
Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed. To release the frame lock simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.

Tip Safety Lock
The tip lock available on many of the Ken Onion SpeedSafe models provides added security to assure that the blade will not deploy while clipped into your pocket.

SpeedSafe from Kershaw Knives revolutionized the knife industry when it was first introduced on the Ken Onion Chive. First off a knife that features SpeedSafe technology is not considered and automatic knife. The correct classification is an “Assisted Opening Knife. There are two variations of SpeedSafe. One being a “Flipper” where the user uses their index finger to deploy the blade, and the other the user uses the thumb stud found on the blade for deployment. Both variations require the user to apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This is why a SpeedSafe does not meet the definition of being classified as a switchblade. A SpeedSafe will not deploy with the push of a button or by gravity alone. Once open, the blade locks safely into position until the user releases it. A key advantage of a SpeedSafe knife is that many of the models are ambidextrous, and can be opened just as easy by either a right or left handed person.
