I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a nice daily carry. Counting the days until I receive this replacement. Kinda feel naked without it.
The Assisted Opening feature works especially well, even though it takes a few times to get used to it if you haven’t used one before. The knife is sharp out of the box (like it’s supposed to be). The blade isn’t thick enough to be able to beat on the knife or pry anything with it, but it’s perfect for cutting stuff and using on a daily basis.
Many states have blade length laws and while this knife complied with the laws of states around us, you should check your own local laws. This is a great gift for someone looking to carry a knife all the time without sacrificing pocket or bag space or worrying about it opening in your pocket (due to its safety). But, encourage them to tie some 550 cord (strong, small string) to it, because I’ve seen a number of reviews saying people lost them.
I love the clip, it fits perfectly onto the inside edge of my pocket. If I reach down to slide it out, the knife automatically fits in the hand perfectly with your finger on the release. While it is NOT a switchblade, the spring that holds it closed also helps with the last bit of opening it, which means pressing on the nub on the back of the blade will flick it open every bit as fast as an automatic knife. With the liner lock that pops out under the blade, it is impossible for it to come unlocked . . . yet easily unlocks and closes with one hand as you slide it right back onto your pocket with the clip.
The ONLY reason I purchased this one . . . is because it fits SO comfortably and seamlessly on my pocket that I didn't feel it when I emptied my pockets at the airport. I literally went into the full-body scanner with the knife still clipped to my pocket and they confiscated it. It was my first flight in years where I had forgotten to put it into my checked luggage. I literally feel a bit naked without it, and for a week reached for it about 10 times a day.
I went back to the store where I purchased it originally, and purchased a replacement. Unfortunately it had plastic-covered sides, which I like less, make it thicker, and make it slide out of my pocket a bit less easily. I used it for a few weeks and then ordered this one here, now the plastic-sided one resides in my checked luggage at all times so I can't forget it. :)
Obviously I don't have to say much about Kershaw, I have 5 Kerhsaw knives and they are all of the highest quality. This one is no exception. It is extremely solid (a metal frame with thick metal sides added), and quite heavy for its size. When it opens, it comes out and clicks with the solidity of cocking a Glock. The ONLY change I make (and it is a personal preference) is I always remove the safety. It is extremely solid and works very well . . . but defeats the purpose of having a knife I can open quickly (and with one hand). I wouldn't ever use it, and it sometimes will lock as I slide it in my jeans. It is easily removable.
First saw it on Youtube, then on Amazon. Though it is a small knife, it can do it all, from a fishing trip to work details.
As describe by others the blade and tip are sharp out of the box. Easily opens by using the flipper. Carries well in the pocket.
Though it has a blade lock, I've never use it as this knife has never accidently opened in my pocket. I don't mind the large lettering of " Kershaw " on the handle..............if anything it makes it a nicer looking knife.
Would highly recommend the Kershaw Black Scallion !!!
I've broken the tips on the blades before and Kershaw has replaced them each time. Be aware the blade is somewhat brittle and does not like being used to pry O-rings out of grooves or as emergency screwdriver, but that sort of treatment is no way to use a quality knife anyway. The blade is sharp without being so oversharp that the slightest touch to a hard object dulls it. The black panels wear very well. The only problem I've had with them is that the little plastic safety catch breaks off, which really doesn't bother me because I never used it anyway.
It's not a substitute for a real fixed blade or a skinning or fighting knife. But it does the sort of jobs 90% of us need a knife for on a daily basis without complaint, and the price means that I can have a handful of them to rotate out as needed when they need honed or sent in for repair, or I want one for the ashtray of my truck. And honestly I would feel naked without some sort of cutting tool on my person every day.
