The purple Scallion has a high-carbon stainless steel bead-blasted blade for both edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. It has jewel-tone purple anodized aluminum scales over a steel liner for the handles. It comes ready to open with the SpeedSafe assisted opening: great for righties and lefties using one hand and the back flipper. The oh-so-handy 2.25-inch blade stays the same, ensuring that the purple Scallion is right-sized for lightweight and convenient carry in pocket, purse, or backpack. Anodizing enables the aluminum to take that eye-popping purple color and helps them resist scratching. Even better, anodizing actually strengthens the aluminum so you get a handle that’s strong, lightweight, and colorful. For safety, the purple Scallion has a locking liner to keep it locked safely open and a Tip-Lock to keep it locked safely closed during transport. If you’ve been waiting for a more colorful Scallion, the purple Scallion just may be the ticket.
