Most survival and defense professionals will agree that the most important tool that you can carry with you, just about everywhere, is a bladed tool. A bladed tool can protect you, feed you, shelter you, and give you the necessary edge to make it home alive. With Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) you will find durable, well thought out, and innovative knife designs built with you in mind. CRKT Knives are used by Military, Law Enforcement, Hunters, Outdoorsman, and Hard Working Professionals world wide because of their quality components, beautiful lines, outstanding craftsmanship, and rugged durability.
We asked Ken Onion, Hawaiian custom knifemaker, designer, inventor and member of the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame, to give us his ideas for a no-nonsense line of sport and work folders. Our goal was to offer great utility and quality in a rugged high-value locking liner folder. We think we've met the sport knife goal in Ken's new aluminum-framed Shenanigan.
Even though Ken is known for his assisted opening folders, in this case, the combination of the open-build frame, blade flipper, and lubrous washers and bronze bushings at the pivot allow for fast one hand opening in an exceptional knife.
The sport model features an AUS8 stainless steel blade and a cold-forged 6061-T6 aluminum frame with a bead blasted finish, clear anodized for durability. The stainless steel liner lock is a strip lock, inset into one frame to save weight. Finally, soft, textured, injection-molded scales are inset in the frame. This makes for a frame that is exceptionally strong, lightweight and comfortable. Finally, the sport model blades receive a black titanium nitrite coating for corrosion resistance.
The combination of contoured handle, index fin ger notch and checkered grip pattern make the Shenanigan models very friendly to the hands.
Ken Onion isn't playing any tricks here. CRKT is pulling the Shenanigans.
