The new CRKT Foresight™ folding knife designed by Ken Onion draws on the tried and true formula of "form follows function". Its formidable profile looks like a chiseled physique just waiting to pounce on your next cutting task with all of the control and efficiencies you would expect in a high-quality folding knife. 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 the use at hand.
Ken designed the 3.5-inch modified drop-point blade with a generous belly and re-curve cutting edge to maximize tool utility. And, the IKBS ball bearing pivot system coupled with Interframe style mechanism, make opening and closing the blade as smooth as silk. Precision ground of AUS 8 stainless steel and coated with Black Ti Nitride finish... this Ken Onion knife looks cool and is plenty sharp. Available in both Plain Edge and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated Edge models.
Bottom line, some say hindsight is 20/20, but perhaps a smarter way to think is that having the Foresight™ shows you plan ahead when it comes to having the right tools.
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.

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