With its slightly recurved blade and ergonomically contoured handle, the Shallot offers dramatic lines and dynamic performance in a larger-sized pocketknife. The 3 1/2-inch blade is Sandvik 14C28N, a high-performance stainless steel designed in a partnership between Sandvik Steel and Kershaw. Additional nitrogen in the formula gives the steel both excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to be hardened to 58-60 Rockwell-so it can take a wicked edge. The slight recurve in the blade makes it perfect for multi-tasking, from slicing to piercing. For even more cutting versatility, this Shallot comes with partial serration. For easy, one-handed opening, the Shallot is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. And since it opens with an ambidextrous flipper on the top of the knife, it's perfect for both left- and right-handed users. Just pull back on the flipper-actually a protrusion on the back of the blade-to start the blade out of the handle. Once started, SpeedSafe takes over and the blade clicks smoothly into place, ready for use. The Shallot offers a sturdy frame lock, a reversible pocketclip, and provides great looks and top performance.
