The Kershaw Scallion Knives were designed by custom knife maker and innovator Ken Onion. The Kershaw Scallions have the patented Ken Onion Speed-Safe assisted opening mechanism. Speed-Safe is a torsion bar system that assists the blade to an open position, when activated by a push on the thumb stud, or the Index-Open blade extension.
The Kershaw Scallion knives are offered with black injection-molded Polyamide handles, stainless steel handles and aluminum handles. The aluminum handled Scallion knives are available with bright Red, electric Blue, forest Green or Pink scales. The Stainless steel handled Scallions have a frame lock.
