Did anyone watch Heroes tonight?
Did you see the knife Emile Danko (Zeljko Ivanek) used to sever the basilar artery of Syler (Zachary Quinto [Spock?]) in tonight's show?
It was a Kershaw Shallot, assisted opening model 1840, a Ken Onion design.
This outstanding knife can, with wise shopping, be purchased on eBay for $26 + ship! That is a steal for this made in the US
One of my favorite heavy carry folder's. Scary sharp and holds an edge!
Mine is a model 1840ST with the serrated edge.
1. Speedsafe index finger opening
2. Reversible pocket clip
3. Largest of the Chive / Leek family
4. Frame lock
Kershaw knives are made in the USA. The Kersahw Shallot, model 1840, is no different. As the largest member of the Leek-Chive family, the Kershaw Shallot also features the Ken Onion speedsafe index finger opening. One push on the lever on the spine of this knife, and the blade comes flying out in a hurry. If you're wondering what it's like to hold this knife, imagine holding an oversized Leek - very fulfilling, like you've found the knife you've always been looking for.
