This partially serrated Scallion uses the familiar 420HC high-carbon blade for edge retention and corrosion resistance with a bead-blasted finish. It has black glass-filled nylon handles for easy grip. Like all the Scallions, it comes ready for use with SpeedSafe assisted opening using the flipper. With its 2.25-inch blade, the Scallion is a smaller knife, just perfect for pocket carry. But just because it?s smaller doesn?t mean the Scallion isn?t mighty. In fact, the Scallion is perfect for just about any cutting task you?d care to ask it to do?from breaking down a cardboard box to cutting twine to cutting apple slices for lunch. For safety, the Scallion has two locking systems. The locking liner locks the blade open so it can?t accidentally close during use. And to ensure that it won?t accidentally open during transport, the Scallion is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded.
