Rainbow Chive Plain Edge

This Kershaw Chive Rainbow knife is another of the very popular Chive series of knives. All of the chives come in several different style choices so you can pick the Chive knife that is a perfect match for your personality. Hippies and fun lovers will enjoy this particular Chive knife that comes with a 410 stainless steel titanium-oxide coated rainbow handle. The blade is also 420HC stainless steel titanium-oxide coated for that unique rainbow effect. Turn it in the light and it becomes iridescent. Another great knife that could serve double duty as a fishing lure! Just kidding. Although the stainless steel and titanium coating will also serve to make this knife durable and resistant to corrosion.

The uniquely shaped Chive blade makes this knife useful for many different purposes, such as filleting a fish or piercing holes in a aluminum.

There are two safety features that make the new line of Kershaws an excellent choice. There is the frame lock which firmly holds your Chive blade into position after being fully opened and the Tip Safety Lock which will lock the blade into place after being folded down.

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.

Gorgeous!! April 29, 2011
Reviewer: Chuck from Culpeper, VA United States  
This is my second Chive and I love this little knife! The colors are amazing and the quality is typical of a Kershaw! The knife is so beautiful that I don't even want to use it.  I can look at it forever and keep it clean to keep it shining.  You can move the knife around under light and see the fine work in craftmanship.  The blade is an amazing work of art! I'm sure one day I'll actually use it, but for now, I'm just happy to have it in my ever growing speedsafe collection.  Great knife at a great price.....definitely!  Highly recommended for collectors of beautiful knifes!
