Easy to carry for daily life
This knife was smaller than I imagined when ordering, but that compact size had been extremely practical in carrying it daily. As a manufacturing engineer, I spend my time about 50/50 between the production floor and office and this little knife is perfect for daily chore work in both settings, without clogging up my pockets with excess blade that isn't really used anyhow. Cutting rope, cardboard, packages, and plastic have all been easy, very sharp out of the box.

The perfect keychain knife.
I originally purchased the Kershaw Chive in my search for a better keychain knife. Great design, fantastic blade. But it was far too heavy to carry on a keychain due to the steel handle. I also did not like the spring-assisted opening, which happens to be illegal in my city.
The Cinder is much lighter thanks to the composite handle, and the blade is small enough to appear innocuous even to anti-knife folks, while still being incredibly useful. The steel is decent and holds a great edge. Finally, the bottle opener works well and I have never felt it dig into my leg when in a pocket.
The design is great: it can easily be opened and closed with one hand. This knife is a fantastic value and the short blade is still utilitarian. I rarely have been so satisfied with such an inexpensive purchase.

Great little knife and the perfect addition to my work ...
Great little knife and the perfect addition to my work keychain. Its sharp, nimble, and stays shut while hanging in my pocket. The perfect knife for the price, would definitely buy again or gift to others.

Perfect for keychain
Came razor blade sharp. Has a liner lock. I added a quick release hook & it’s perfect. Will be buying more of these for gifts. Bottle opener works well. Unfortunately, it’s made in China, not USA but Kershaw is a good company (some of their knives ARE made in the USA) & the quality control is obviously in place as it seems to be well made. This is lower grade steel (3CR13) but will also resharpen quickly when dull. Highly recommend.

Compact and super useful
Adorable little knife, keep it on my motorcycle key. Useful in the weirdest situations. Sheep's foot blade is sharp, but not stabby. :)
About 6.5cm (2.6in) closed, 10cm (a hair over 3in) open. The magnet that keeps it locked is strong, and sometimes gets stuck to the magnetic money clip on my wallet if kept in the same pocket. Have had the thumb knob catch on something while pulling it out of a pocket, but have never had it open in a pocket. Lock release is big and easy to use, but just tucked away enough that you're not going to hit it on accident while using the blade. Recently discovered that I'm not the only person I know that owns one of these, and the friend who has one is also tickled with it.

Great little box cutter and present opener :)
This is a NICE little box cutter and present opener, the blade is definitely to short/small for most EDC tasks. But the knife is well made works smooth and tight went right on my key change and I hardly even notice it, opens quickly and locks tight. The grip of the handle it great it's easy to control and keep a steady strong hold of the knife. Great knife, design, and a bargain at the price, I bought this when I had to replace my Kershaw 1760 after the TSA got my old one and I'm glad I did, complements the 1760 well.

After lots of looking and reading descriptions and reviews I ordered this knife. I was looking for a small, well made knife with a hole for attaching it to a split ring. After receiving this knife I'm glad that I chose this one! It is small, sharp and the blade lock is strong. The handle is comfortable and the knife is well made. Im sure the bottle opener will come in handy too!

Perfect for a hip keychain
This awesome little knife stays swinging from my hip where ever I go. When I need to use it for work, I just swing the knife from the hip to box level and just pop it out. I use it all the time at work and when ever I need to cut something.
The knife still remains sharp after countless uses. The blade does not have a wiggle to it.

Perfect Key Chain Accessory
Best little knife I've owned. It has 2 jobs and does them very well. Mainly, I use the knife to open packages and then break down. The blade shape is perfect for this function. The bottle opener works well but it's a little bit short. I have to pay careful attention to make sure I catch the edge of the bottle cap. It usually takes me 2 attempts to open a bottle. It's not a deal breaker for me because I love everything else about it, including its compact size and the fact that I can open the blade with a single swipe of my thumb.
