Ken Onion is probably the best known American knife designer. With the release of his Ken Onion Chef’s Knife, he’s practically a household name.
Okay, that might be overstepping just a bit. But he’s now made several successful models for Kershaw, this Chive being a great example.
It’s small, light and sharp. The most notable feature, though, is the Speed-Safe opening mechanism. This provides the ease of an automatic opening mechanism, while ensuring you don’t cut yourself when it engages. There’s a safety to keep it in place as well.
The 1 and 15/16ths inch blade is 420 high-carbon steel and comes quite sharp out of the box. That’s quite small, so make sure you’re looking for that before buying. It includes a removable belt clip.
The Chive is available in several colors — black, red, stainless, pink and even rainbow!
