The Shallot is the largest of Kershaw's "Onion" series
Crave a larger pocketknife? Then the Shallot is for you. 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 is 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.

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.
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.
SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
