Kershaw Rainbow Scallion - 1620VIB
Made in the USA

The Scallion is one of Kershaw's most popular knives and the Rainbow Scallion is one of their most spectacular.

The amazing rainbow colors are the result of applying the titanium-oxide coating. The coating is created by a process in which metals are ionized, then permanently deposited as a microns-thin metal coating on the blades. The coating is durable and scratch resistant, and looks amazing. Like other Scallions, the Rainbow Scallion features a handy 2 1/4-inch blade, making it the perfect size for lightweight and convenient pocket carry. The high-carbon stainless steel blade offers good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance.

Of course, one of the Scallion's coolest features is SpeedSafe assisted opening. With SpeedSafe, you can open the blade one-handed. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready for use. For safety, the Rainbow Scallion has a secure frame lock to keep it locked safely open during use and a Tip-Lock to keep it locked safely closed during transport.

Features of the Kershaw Rainbow Scallion 1620VIB

Blade Material: 420HC Steel
This modified 420 steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge.

Blade Finish: Titanium-Oxide Rainbow Coating
When oxygen is introduced into the PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition) process, the result is Kershaw's spectacular "rainbow" finishes. The Rainbow Chive, Scallion, and Leek all feature this amazing multicolored finish. And like their other PVD coatings, it resists scratching.

Handle Material: Titanium-Oxide Rainbow Coated 410 Stainless Steel
An alloy of iron and carbon, most steel also has additional elements alloyed in it to enhance specific characteristics. As a handle material, steel is strong and attractive.

SpeedSafe
SpeedSafe is a patented system that assists the user to smoothly open any SpeedSafe knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion. SpeedSafe is built into many of Kershaw's best-selling knives.

Flipper
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.

Frame Lock
In a frame lock knife, the knife handle, its "frame," consists of two plates of material on either side of the blade. To ensure a secure lock up, one or both of these plates is usually metal. When the knife is opened, the metal side of the frame, the lockbar, butts up against the backend of the blade (the tang) and prevents the blade from closing. To close a frame lock knife, the user pushes the frame to the side, unblocking the blade, and folds the blade back into the handle. Frame locks are manufactured so that the locking side of the frame is angled toward the interior of the knife, creating a bias toward the locked position. Both the blade tang and the lockbar are precisely angled so they fit together for a secure, reliable lockup. The thickness of the frame material blocking the blade open makes the frame lock extremely sturdy.

Tip-Lock
The tip-lock is a simple slider that, when engaged, ensures the blade will not accidentally open. It's especially helpful in cases where the knife might be juggled in a briefcase, backpack, or purse.

Single-Position Pocketclip
The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle. Usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary. You can remove the clip completely, if you prefer.

Made in the USA
This knife is made in Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
