Kershaw 1600CKTDAM Chive Black Damascus Assisted Opener, Damascus Steel Blade. The Chive series features Kershaw's SpeedSafe ambidextrous opening system for smooth, easy opening by both right and left-handed users. Closed, the Chive is less than three inches long, perfect for pocket carry. This Chive has a handsome Damascus layered steel blade. This material is formed by taking several different steels and hammering them together, folding them over and repeating the process until there is a multitude of layers and the effect is extraordinary. The black and silver alternating layers are strikingly beautiful and many believe that Damascus steel blades get sharper than other steels.
All Chives also feature the Safety Tip Lock to ensure the blade stays securely inside the handle until the user releases it, and a removable pocket clip for easy carrying. The Chive may be the smallest member of the "Onion" family, but it's got all the advanced features knife users demand.
