This knife is wonderful! I'm one of the last people to get something that looks this "girly," but there was something about it that appealed to me. It looks cute and innocent, with the pinkish rainbow sheen (mine has a lot more green and blue than the picture), but it's wicked sharp. Since it is spring-assist, it opens lightning quick and can be deployed instantly for opening boxes or what-have-you. I like carrying mine with the pocket clip, but it comes with a safety lock so you can carry it in your pocket without fear of having it accidentally open. Very essential for the times when I'm wearing dress pants and can't have a knife showing.

It is very small though. It is perfect for kids or someone like me who has very small hands. Though I do have problems opening the knife with the thumb stud. It's just small enough that my thumb will slide to intercept the edge of the blade. Fortunately, it has index-opening and with one flick of my index finger, I can open it.

I carry larger knives in my jeans pockets on a daily basis, but if you need something discreet and stylish, you can't go wrong with the Ken Onion Rainbow Chive. It certainly looks inconspicuous, but it's incredibly useful for many applications.

I'm mostly a kitchen knife collector but was so impressed by Kershaw/Shun Ken Onion that I decided to try a style of knife (sport) that is his usual forte. I'm just as impressed with the design of this knife as I was with the Shun/Onion knife. It's compact, it's attractive, and sharp enough to shave an arm with. I have the rainbow chive and I am still amazed that as much as I've used it, the surface and coloring is still intact and gorgeous. I'm now a believer in Speed Safe, and have my second Ken Onion (leek) on order. 50 dollars for a small pocket knife? (I hear people complaining) Absolutely, it's well worth the price, but anybody who knows knives knows that the truly good ones are never inexpensive and last a lifetime. You get what you pay for, and this one is well worth it.

It took me a long time to accept the notion of paying more than 10 bucks for a knife. This is a great deal, though. Very, very smooth opening and closing action, keeps an edge very well, and is shipped to you super sharp already. What I really like is the ability to keep it on you almost all the time since it is very small and light. You have to be careful opening and closing it the first few times though (read: don't buy this for your Cub Scout). Overall, definitely the best deal I've seen in this price range.

Color Name: Black
I've had this knife for a little more than three years now, and am still happy with the purchase. I just wish the lower portion of the blade was serrated. You really only need the tip portion straight. Other than missing the serration, this is NEARLY the perfect keychain knife. Despite this flaw, its still 5 stars. Here's the best features of the knife:

Blade to frame ratio: this is the closest to 1:1 blade to frame ratio I've found, especially compared to some of the syperco knives.

Weight: feels good in your hand for it's size, but not too heavy to keep on your keys.

Blade length/width: almost 2 inches. BTW, keep in mind that new TSA rules allow a knife with a blade up to 2.36 inches in length, but only up to 0.5 inches in width. This blade is less than 2.36 inches in length, but more than 0.5 in width at the widest point, so you'll have to take it off your keychain before flying. I've had to do this many times. (and twice have forgotten, TSA was not happy). Bummer.

Frame lock: Once the blade is opened, the frame lock automatically locks into place so there is no need to worry that it will snap shut and cut your fingers during use. This is a must have feature. For example, I looked at some of the spydercos and decided against them for this reason

Speedsafe opening: Makes opening one handed a snap. And snap open it does! It's very fast and fun to use! I love opening this up, lots of cool factor here. If you haven't used it before, its like having a springloaded blade. Simply awesome.

Safety Lock: The blade has a small safety lock that ensures that the knife won't flip open in your pocket.

Perfect! Love it!
I have had mine for over a year now.
The safety clip broke (I am embarrased to say I dropped the knive, while closed, on a concrete floor several times!). Kershaw sent me a new safety clip at no charge. Without the safety, you can not carry this knife.
If you need a small, quality, easy to open knife......get this one!

I was looking for a small knife with a metal handle that was also made in america to replace a small Spyderco Dragonfly. This knife fits the bill perfectly. It is very high quality, and at a reasonable price for what it is. I would buy another.

My sister saw this knife in one of my catalogs, and was mesmerized by its finish. I got it for her as part of a Christmas gift and she loved it. I would prefer a bit more grip on it, if it were mine. But she keeps it in her purse for emergencies and occasionally takes it out just to stare at it.
