Black Shallot Serrated Edge

Black ops, here we come. You’ll be living in your very own action adventure movie with the Black Shallot 1840 from Kershaw and Ken Onion. This knife is not only as dark as night, it slices through it like butter.

The Black Shallot gets its distinctive look from the Tungsten DLC coating over its all stainless steel construction. The coating helps protect the knife, making it stronger and more resistant to wear and tear. Underneath this coating you’ll find a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel blade and a 410 stainless steel handle. In addition, the blade is partially serrated making it more versatile in the kitchen or on outdoor trips.

The Shallot comes with a reversible/removable pocket clip for tip up or down carrying. It also features the patented SpeedSafe assisted index finger opening system. This system is ambidextrous so righties and lefties open the knife with ease. This knife comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The Black Shallot is made in the USA.

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.

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.
