Kershaw Serrated Scallion - 1620ST
Made in the USA

With its 2 1/4-inch blade, the Scallion is a smaller knife, just perfect for pocket carry. But just because it's smaller doesn't mean the Scallion isn't mighty. In fact, the Scallion is perfect for just about any cutting task you'd care to ask it to do, from breaking down a cardboard box to cutting twine to cutting apple slices for lunch.

This Scallion's partially serrated blade adds additional cutting versatility. And to ensure your handy little blade is always ready when you need it, the Scallion is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready for use. The high-carbon blade steel offers good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. The bead-blasted finish is easy to maintain.

For safety, the Scallion has two locking systems. The locking liner locks the blade open so it can't accidentally close during use. And to ensure that it won't accidentally open during transport, the Scallion is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded. In classic black, the Scallion's textured, glass-filled nylon handle scales are durable, lightweight, and easy to maintain.

Features of the Kershaw Serrated Scallion 1620ST

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: Bead-Blasted
The knife blade is "blasted" or sprayed with a mixture of fine media, including glass and aluminum oxide beads, under high speed and pressure. This smooths the blade surface and creates a soft, non-reflective, matte look. Depending on the media, this finish can produce a darker or a lighter blade color.

Scallop Serrated Blade
Serrations assist in cutting through particularly tough or fibrous material, such as rope or cord. The scalloped serration offers even cutting power on both push and pull strokes and doesn't "tear" the material as much as other serration styles.

Handle Material: Glass-Filled Nylon
Nylon synthetic polymer is reinforced with glass threads for increased strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability combined with excellent wear resistance.

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.

Liner Lock
The most common of today's blade-locking systems. The handle consists of two metal plates (the "liner") on either side of the blade. When the knife is opened, one side of the knife's liner, often called the lockbar, butts up against the backend of the blade (the tang) and prevents the blade from closing. The lockbar is manufactured so that it angles toward the interior of the knife, creating a bias for the locked position. To close the knife, the knife user applies manual force to move the lockbar to the side so that the blade is unblocked and can be folded back into the handle. The liner lock provides a secure and convenient way to make using a Kershaw folding knife even safer.

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.
