And it holds its sharpness very well.
Josef Gershman
The spring assisted release is so convenient and cool to play with, and the frame lock is solid, and one handed closing and opening is a cinch.
MiniTee
Great knife, small, perfect fit in pocket.

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!

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.

Color Name: Stainless
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 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.
