Great knife, small, perfect fit in pocket.
That guy
This tip lock and assisted opening both work well, and make it very convenient for one hand opening.
WhtShadow
Sharp as a razor, the blade has a very shallow-angle that will hold a seriously sharp edge.

I like to carry a small knife around with me most of the time. And the Chive is an ideal knife for that purpose. With a 2 inch blade, it's not very big so you're not going to be able to use it for heavy-duty jobs. But the construction is solid, and the speed-assist mechanism means you can open it easily with just one hand. It is also very light so you will hardly notice it in your pocket. It has a frame-lock which I prefer to a liner-lock because in general frame-locks tend to be more secure. And it does have a clip so you can clip it to your pocket (you can also remove the clip with a Torx screwdriver size T-6). The steel used for the blade (420 HC) is not a super-high quality steel, but it's plenty good for most common everyday tasks. It does have a safety tip lock, although I found mine to be a bit loose and it has sometimes slipped into the "off" position. But the blade itself has never popped open accidentally even when the safety was off. Being that it is so small, it's not quite as comfortable to hold as a bigger knife, but for its size it is relatively comfortable. When I hold it, my pinky hangs off the edge, unlike a larger knife like the Kershaw Vapor that I can grip will all four fingers on the handle.

Update 9/24/2009
The torsion bar broke recently and I had to get it replaced. I'm a little bit disappointed it broke already because I didn't think I used the knife that heavily. However Kershaw has top-notch customer service. They'll either send you a replacement torsion bar for free or you can ship them the knife and they'll fix it and ship it back to you (you pay to ship them the knife but they'll replace the torsion bar and ship it back for free). I had them ship me the torsion bar and I replaced it myself, and I'm not that handy so it must not be too difficult. Props to Kershaw for standing behind their product and backing it up with great service!

I generally _always_ carry some kind of pocketknife or multi-tool with me, and ever since my father gave me this Ken Onion Chive- it's become the ONLY knife I carry 90% of the time. (the other 10%, I feel the need for the tools in my Gerber multi-plier) It's the perfect size for most tasks, and holds an edge seemingly forever. But that's not the best part. This knife has almost perfect ergonomics. Using the torsion-bar speed open, the knife flips open with just a small amount of pressure, and locks open positively. It can also be easily unlocked and closed with one hand, and there's a safety which keeps the knife closed. In fact, my only gripe with this knife is the safety- it's a tiny zytel plastic part held in place with a stainless screw- I've never been able to get it tight enough that it consistently stays in place, yet loose enough that it can still be easily slid off with one finger. Otherwise, I love it! It clips perfectly in the change pocket of my jeans, and I carry it everywhere (well, at least as long as I'm not flying).

I had been looking for a smaller every day carry (EDC) pocket knife that had some nice modern features (Kershaw's "flipper" assisted open)and this fits the bill. I wanted something that wasn't large and I could carry to the office everyday with out getting looks from non-knife folks. I did search You Tube knife reviews for months before deciding on this one. I weighed it against comparable SOGs, Bucks, Spydercos, ... It is razor sharp out of the box and opens extremely fast. My only complaint is that the clip doesn't sit as deep in the pocket as I would like. This is my first Kershaw knife, but it won't be my last. Plus, it is made in the USA.

It's really small, great for every day carry when a larger knife might not be appropriate. This thing is too small for self-defense, unless you are being attacked by a hamster or something. But for every day utility.. cutting open boxes, bags and so on, it's hard to beat for the price.

Flicks open with the slightest touch, yet stays closed in the pocket. Don't ask me how they do it, but it works.

My only complaint is that the safety switch is a little loose, from the factory. It has a tendency to move back and forth in the pocket by itself. This can be annoying if you want to slash open a bag of charcoal and you pull out the knife and it won't open, so you have to set down the charcoal, unlatch the safety and pick it back up before you can commence the slashing.

HOWEVER, this can be easily rectified if you have access to a set of small allen wrenches (I don't know the size offhand). All you have to do is turn the safety off and tighten it down and it will remain off. Conversely, if you are traveling or something, you may want to lock the safety in the on position. It should come with an allen wrench, but it's not a big enough deal to warrant only 4/5 starts. It is still an amazing little blade.

I like this knife very much; it's size, shape, fit in the hand, and pocket clip are all just what I wanted. It has a nice edge and the Speed Safe assisted opening feature is fantastic. My only complaint is that the safety is placed in such a way that makes one-handed opening difficult with the safety engaged. I want the safety engaged because the assisted opening is so easy to activate and I don't want the knife springing open in my pocket. This is only a minor quibble, though. I do enjoy the knife very much; it is a good size to wear with jeans for light duty day-to-day use, which is what most people need a pocket knife for anyway. I use a different, larger knife for heavier duty use.
