Shallot Serrated Edge

You’ll be surprised how well this knife cuts. Made by Kershaw and Ken Onion by Americans for the world, the Shallot is a sharp and long lasting little knife. It’s no ordinary onion!

The Shallot is made from all stainless steel construction. It features a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel blade and a 410 stainless steel handle, making this knife stain and rust resistant. This particular model comes with a partially serrated blade for versatility. You’ll be able to chop, slice, cut and saw your way through anything. The Shallot comes with a limited lifetime warranty. This is a knife that will provide you with a lifetime of quality service.

Excellent safety features are a part of what makes the Shallot 1840 such a great knife. It comes with the patented SpeedSafe assisted ambidextrous index-finger opener to easily slide open the blade when you need it. The knife also comes with a reversible/removable pocket clip for easy and convenient carrying. You can carry the Shallot tip up or tip down at an arm’s reach.

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.

Great Knife February 12, 2010
Reviewer: Chris Gussenhoven from Hohenwald, TN United States  
I carry this knife and it gets a lot of use. It is extremely Durable and really holds its edge. Very easy opening and is so slim, you don't even feel it in your pocket. I have many Knives, including some Kershaws, but this is the one I Carry.
