Kershaw Shallot w/ S110V Steel Blade
Still another permutation of the great Shallot assisted opener from Kershaw Knives! This one has the new CPMS110V stainless steel. It’s the first production knife featuring this steel and we are excited to offer them. Crucible Materials Corporation has been perfecting steel for knives for some time and this is the latest and greatest. They are limited in production, so don’t snooze too long!
Here is the Kershaw information on these knives:
The shallot onion is one of the world’s favorite ways to spice up a cuisine. And the all-stainless-steel Kershaw Shallot, designed by Ken Onion, is destined to spice up your knife collection.
For this one, we’ve peeled away the layers, leaving nothing but superb form, keen function, and pure stainless-steel. This Shallot features a CPM-S110V recurve blade. The unique recurve blade design provides for low mass and high performance.
This exceptional blade is partnered with a sleek stainless-steel handle designed for a sure, ergonomic grip. The handle is built of 410 stainless-steel—hardened and tempered to provide maximum strength. For safety, there’s a convenient frame lock to secure the blade in position until you choose to releases it.
The Shallot features our SpeedSafe® assisted opening system with ambidextrous index-finger opening. Just pull back on the blade protrusion with the index finger of either the left or right hand. The SpeedSafe® system then moves the blade out of the handle and smoothly and easily into position, ready for use.
The Shallot is a pocket-perfect 4-3/8 inches closed and weighs just 4.2 ounces. It is made in the USA and built to uphold Kershaw’s high standards of quality and performance. Like the tasty shallot it’s named for, the Kershaw Shallot is sure to make your mouth water for more.
