1840CKTST - Shallot from Kershaw, Black Stainless Steel Handle, Black Serrated Edge Blade - Both w/Tungsten DLC Coatings
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.
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.
