Plus, if you ever wish to use it, the Scallion can handle whatever use you put to it. The Scallion is made in the USA with a 420HC stainless steel blade and 410 stainless steel handle both with a titanium oxide coating. The titanium coating gives this little knife its attractive Rainbow finish. For your convenience the Scallion comes with a removable pocket clip so you can take the blade where ever you go. Plus, its tip safety lock ensures that the blade remains securely closed when folded down. All stainless steel construction and a limited lifetime warranty means this knife from over the rainbow will provide you an eternity of excellent service. When closed the Scallion is 3 1/2 inches long, opened it’s about 5 3/4 inches.

SpeedSafe® is the patented, assisted opening mechanism pioneered by Kershaw that makes it fast and easy to open a knife one-handed. SpeedSafe also makes it possible for Kershaw to ensure that even a large blade can move out of the handle just as smoothly and easily as a smaller one. Plus, many of their assisted folders are ambidextrous—and open with a flipper or a thumbstud on both sides of the blade—so they’re just as easy to use left-handed or right. To open a SpeedSafe knife, the user must apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This means that SpeedSafe knives do not meet the definition of a switchblade; they do 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.
