Kershaw Ken Onion Pack Rat Assisted Opener
Kershaw and Ken Onion keep coming up with great designs. This American made assisted opener has all the right stuff- great materials with a Sandvik 14C28N stainless blade, G10 handles with stainless liners, a thick liner for its liner locking system and a pronounced flipper built into the blade. The size is medium with a 3-1/4″ blade and the shape is awesome. The upswept blade that seems to call out for work. The RatPack is a great addition to the Kershaw lineup.
The first batch we got in has “1 of 500 First Production” on the blade. We cannot guarantee you will get one of these unless you call us to look at the knife you are ordering.

Kershaw Shallot Assisted Opening Folder 3.5″ Composite 14CZN/ZDP189 Steel Blade
The Kershaw Shallot is a great knife. It is a large, usable size and has all the great Ken Onion assisted opening features. We now have several permutations of this model and this one has the hardest steel. The Damascus models may look prettier to some and they are a super high quality product, but this ZDP-189 steel that is on the cutting edge of these composite blades is super hard and will hold an edge a really long time. Surprisingly, it is not too difficult to resharpen them, either.

Kershaw Limited Edition Random Leek with 14C28N Steel Blade
The Kershaw Leek is one of the best selling models of all time. The random Leek has an inverted tanto style blade and is often brought out in limited editions. This latest model features a special new steel developed by Sandvik exclusively for Kershaw knives. Kershaw says, “This quality chromium steel provides excellent hardness, as well as corrosion and wear resistance.” We, at the KnifeCenter, haven’t tested the material ourselves and so can only pass on the information we have gathered.

Kershaw Ace Economical Keychain Knife
A beautiful Kershaw design and a gorgeous price. Get a great key ring knife and pay $9.95. OK, it is made in China, but it is still a good knife and has the Kershaw qualities of razor sharp edge and top quality construction. The closed length is only 3-1/8″ and the blade is just over 2″. It has a slim profile and so will work great on the included key ring.

The Kershaw RAM knives have been great sellers since their release. The line up is not complete, however, until they bring out the black blade models and that is what we just got in. These are really nice looking folders and work great.

Kershaw Chive – Assisted Opener with Layered Damascus Blade
The Kershaw Chive was one of the first assisted openers on the market and has been one of our most popular items of all time. This is the prettiest Chive we have seen with gorgeous layered Damascus steel blade in black and silver. The damascus leek is generally hard to get and we bet these will also go quickly.

Kershaw Skyline Flipper Opening Folder
Kershaw has a lot of knife models. Many are Onion designs but this new one, the Skyline, is not. It is made in the USA and also not assisted. The built in flipper, however, allows for very quick action and the whole design is lightweight and medium size.

Kershaw OSO Sweet Onion Assisted Opener
Kershaw Ken Onion assisted openers are an amazing and varied breed. This newest species, the OSO Sweet Onion, is the lowest cost model and is made in China! Nevertheless, it is a well made folder with very fast action and a comfortable handle. The liner locks it open adequately and it should serve you well for many years.
