Product Description

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. CRKT goal was to offer great utility and quality in a rugged high-value locking liner folder. Columbia River has met the sport knife goal in Ken’s 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.

All models feature 3.25″ long blades with a classic Ken Onion profile. There is a modified drop point with a slight recurve and a swedged top edge. Both Razor- Sharp or Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are available.

Shenanigan™ Aluminum. The sport model features an AUS8 stainless steel blade and a cold-forged 6061-T6 aluminum frame with a bead blast 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.
