Product Description

For this one, we've peeled away the layers, leaving nothing but superb form, keen function, and pure stainless steel. The Shallot features a Sandvik 14C28N recurve blade. The unique recurve blade design provides for low mass and high performance, while the 14C28N steel offers excellent hardness, corrosion, and wear resistance. This high-carbon chromium steel provides for a high quality blade ideal for a wide range of both everyday and extraordinary tasks. The Shallot is available with a smooth blade and a partially serrated blade. This exceptional blade is partnered with a sleek stainless-steel handle designed for a sure, ergonomic grip. The handle is built of 410 stainless steel, hardened and tempered to provide maximum strength. For safety, there's a convenient frame lock to secure the blade in position until you choose to release it. Both blade and handle are polished to a steely matte-gray finish. Or, if you prefer the dark, choose the Black Shallot, with a smooth or partially serrated blade featuring a Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. All Shallots feature our SpeedSafe ambidextrous manually assisted opening. Just pull back on the blade protrusion with the index finger of either the left or right hand. The SpeedSafe system then moves the blade out of the handle and smoothly and easily into position, ready for use. The Shallot is a pocket-perfect 4-3/8 inches closed and weighs just 4.2 ounces. It is made in the USA and built to uphold Kershaw's high standards of quality and performance. Like the tasty shallot it's named for, the new Kershaw Shallot is sure to make your mouth water for more.

If your looking for an investment in a great overall cutting or slicing knife this is it. So far, I had this knife a month now and use it quite a bit for random task and the blade still remains extremely sharp. The black on black coating is beautiful and the quick switch blade action that Kershaw is know for is flawless.

Otherwise, the product came in earlier that expected and came in the manufacturing box with reading material.

Can't go wrong with this brand.

This knife is exactly what I wanted. For me, it's the perfect size to carry all of the time. It's big enough to do some serious cutting and not too big to be a problem in your pocket. The opening assist is amazing, and it allows you one hand operation. I was just up on a really tall ladder to cut a rope from a high branch. Being able to open and close this knife with one hand while 25 feet up saved me from a heart attack, lol. My ONLY criticism of this knife is how easily the finish is marred by the keys in my pocket.

Bought to replace one that I foolishly lost. Tried the black coating because of the looks. Big mistake as it scratches easily. If you carry keys in the same pocket as your knife, stick with the stainless and you'll be fine. Otherwise, an outstanding knife.

This is my first Kershaw knife when i retired my aging 10yr old Benchmade. I love of the open assist and heaviness of knife. Edge stay sharp even after some normal use. Currently this is my daily carry knife. Highly recommended.

update 8-2013
I hardly use this knife at all and only carried around on daily basis. I only used it to cut open Amazon boxes and showed it off to my friends. Last month the tip was broken one day after I got home and I had no idea how it broke!( I did not drop it on any hard surface and didn't use it on anything harder than Amazon shipping boxes.) Just curios if anyone has the same problem. Time to look for a new knife.... >_< Changed it to 3 stars.

love it so much that when i lost the last one i bought a replacement, found that one again and the new one is back in the box - the coating can scratch off pretty easily, but the lock is beautiful - the switchable clip is nice and that means you can index as you draw and flip open after it clears your pocket speeding access to whatever it is your trying to cut with a single handed system.

There are so many things I love about this knife that I'm sad I returned it due to the problems. The SpeedSafe opening plus the back index finger stud/flipper near the pivot make for the easiest opening knife ever.

The knife itself is very thin, at only about 1/4" thickness. It consists basically of three sheets of metal, one for each handle and another for the blade, sandwiched together. You could tuck it inside your waistband for comfortable all-day carry. Most other knives are 1/2" or more.

The index finger stud/flipper swings around in the opened position to reinforce the finger choil. In the open position, I feel my hand is safe from sliding up the blade, even in hard use. If I wanted something more grippy, like G10, I'd just add some skateboard friction tape.

So now for the problems:

First, the liner lock does not engage enough for me to feel comfortable. The liner lock already is thinner steel, based on the thin profile of the handle material, plus it only engaged about 20% on the blade. That made me very nervous.

Second, when you change the clip to tip up carry, it exposes a large silver pivot screw. That's not a big deal, as I could cold blue it well enough. I posted a photo.

Third, there's no thumb stud. That probably is not a big deal to most people who will buy the knife, but it's a huge deal to me since I'm in California. That's my bad because I didn't look at the photo close enough. I love the knife enough that I would have paid money to weld on a thumb stud, if the thinness of the liner lock wasn't a deal killer for me.

If I didn't live in California and wanted a lighter duty EDC, this would be perfection. Frankly, I don't think there's a better light duty EDC around, especially for the price.

The assisted opening is slow and coating rubs off easily.
It feels good in the hand and conceals well. Very sharp!

I love Kershaw knives and the Shallot is my favorite. I've been looking for re placement and gave the black coated version a try and was very disappointed. The finish seems frail and scratched and scuffed easy. I'll stick with my silver finish.
