The Chive is a Ken Onion design featuring a hollow-ground clip point blade of 420 stainless steel black carbide coated blade. An index trigger serves both as both an ambidextrous opening aid and as a finger guard when the blade is deployed. A push on the trigger activates the Speed Safe torsion bar technology to quickly spring the blade open. A notched thumb ramp of the blade provides a secure placement for the index finger or thumb to rest on during use.

How are Spring Assist different from a Gravity Knife or Switchblade Knife?

Gravity or Switch Blade knives feature a button, level, or other type of switch that releases a spring pressure to automatically open the blade. On a Spring Assist knife, there is no separate button or switch. Instead, you apply pressure to part of the blade to begin the opening process. This is usually a small bump of metal which sticks out under the knife, making it fast and comfortable to use. Once you press on that part of the blade, it automatically opens and locks into place. Since the action of opening the knife is started by pressing the blade metal, instead of a button or switch, it is considered to bypass the laws which ban Switch Blade knives.
