FORESIGHT description
You Won't Know Where the Blade Ends and Your Hand Begins.

This folding urban tactical knife proves that form follows function with swept finger grooves, a formidable AUS 8 blade, and the smooth and fast IKBS™ opening system. Whatever the need, you're good to go through anything with this bad boy of a blade.

Ken Onion of Kaneohe, HI designed the CRKT Foresight™. As a veteran, an experienced custom knifemaker, and the youngest member to ever be inducted into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008; he's the real deal when it comes to knives. This one is just another example of Ken's tight mechanics and comfortable form in a blade that's ready for your urban law enforcement and professional tactical needs.

The 3.5-inch modified drop-point blade has a generous belly and re-curve cutting edge. Precision ground AUS 8 stainless steel and coated with a Black Titanium Nitride finish, it absolutely rips through anything that comes its way. Yet it opens like a well-oiled cutting machine.

The IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system coupled with an InterFrame build style provides fast opening action for the blade with great rigidity. Just push down on the opening flipper with your finger and the blade is called to attention. Then a locking liner engages the blade tang for a solid lock-up. You'll be safe. If only the same could be said for anything standing in this high-quality folding knife's way.

What truly sets this blade apart though is how it feels when you hold it. The cold-forged aluminum handle of the Foresight™ is purposefully styled and shaped with swept finger grooves and proper palm swell to provide a confident, comfortable grip no matter what the use. You'd swear the designer made a mold out of your own bare hand.

Even the way the knife gets transported was well thought out. A blackened, stainless steel carry-clip is designed and mounted to provide a ôlow-profile" carry that is deeper in the pocket.

Hindsight may be 20/20, but with the Foresight™ you'll show you can plan ahead when it comes to the right tools.

Also available:

Foresight™ with Triple-Point™ Serrations (K220KKS)

Swindle - Designed by Ken Onion (K241XXP), bends the rules of what a modern folding pocket knife can be with a design that flows from tip to tail.

I loved this knife. The ergonomics were great, a nice thumb ramp gives you decent control of the blade. The ball bearing system made this knife fly open, and the deep pocket design concealed it very well. The only two real issues I personally had was that 1: it didn't have a thumb stud. 2: the clip screws became loose (seems to be a common problem, at least with the two crkt knives I've owned) the only other thing might be the grip. The aluminum handles are slick. Just be careful when taking it apart, the ball bearings are small and will scatter. Overall a great knife.

Love the knife, hate the belt clip. Great action on the blade. Nice feel in your hand. The belt clip bent easily and is hard to bend back. I ended up taking the clip off.

I love Onion's work, and this knife is a monster. It's beefy and feel bomb proof. Flipping it open like firing a rifle, that's recoil Very solid in hand, balance well, nice factory edge. Holding it, like you're holding a gun.

the Foresite is a nice knife from CRKT and designed by Ken Onion.The blade is big and beafy with a nice belly and slight recurve.The flipper opening with the IKBS bearings system is silk smooth.The knifes aluminium handle feels great in hand and the top of the blade is nicely rouded for comfort.the knife is very sharp right out of the box and retains it s edge well .the low ride clip is perfect and this knife feels almost unnoticeable in your pocket.i really like this knife and would recommend it.

i can see that this knife, and CRKT's new knives are a, pun intended, stab at Benchmade Knives with these newer price points.
