Nope Jerry, it's not speedsafe...but due to the angle of the thumbstud and the construction of the knife, it opens up with just a tiny little flick of the wrist, by far the smoothest thumbstud-opener I've ever handled, just a great super heavy duty workhorse of a knife!
Any yes I agree, I love the fact that they have a "born on" date on the blade, that would be a really nice bonus if they did that with all their blades...or at least the US made ones. ::nod::

A black handle Scallion next week and I think I'll be finished with them. I picked up this display to go along with what I have. It's kinda cool. The blade is not sharpened (and is etched "Sample: Not Sharp"). There's a red LED in the upper left corner (looking at it) that flashes. It will be interesting to see how long I can put up with that. :lol:

...Nice loookin' set there Jerry! I'm still eyeballin' ol yeller there....
I'm pretty sure they offer some other color schemes on the scallion too though if you really want to be a complete-ist about it. ...Believe I've seen a rainbow one somewhere.....

Yeah and a pink one too. The rainbow is too much $$ and I have no desire to own the pink one. I'm just going to get a black one and quit. I don't have a burning need to own all the colors.

Make knifegirl1 an offer of $29 on this one. You only get three chances but if it's like the others I bought from her $29, $30 or $31 should be accepted.

Both are available in all black. The Scallion is a little more difficult to find and both are usually more expensive than some of the other models.

I've noticed two new colors for Leeks. Orange and Purple. For some odd reason, I'm pretty hot for orange so I had to have it. It came in today's mail.

John -- If you get something, make sure you post it.

I wish they would release some of the other bright primary colors. Red, blue, yellow, green. Although, I think I did see a red Leek.
