For Those Who Want Five Stars, Here's the Pocket Knife Version.

This is the next version of the one that started it all and invented a whole new category called the ôgentleman's tactical". With a smooth and fast opening IKBS™ ball bearing system, this everyday carry knife looks swanky and gets the job done.

Ken Onion of Kaneohe, HI designed the Eros™ to be a suit knife, take to church knife, or any kind of knife where refined cutting power and a bit of polish are in order. A Blade Show Knife of the Year Award winner that looks good in hand and looks even better when you open it up.

A sleek modified spear point blade crafted from high carbon stainless steel offers a fine tip and beautiful satin finish. You almost don't want to get it dirty. Almost.

What's truly attractive though is how quickly the blade deploys with IKBS™. This ball bearing pivot system provides smooth, fast, opening action for the blade with the simple flip of finger. It's like having your filet mignon of features with all of the finest trimmings.

In the hand, this knife feels like the shifter in a sports car. The ultra-lightweight titanium handle is detail-sculpted for a cool look and added grip traction. An extremely unique custom style carry clip makes carrying it both convenient and easy. Not to mention it gives you a subtle way to show off your stylish folder to friends.

Grab your Eros™ when you want a sleek sophisticated knife that's confidently infused with a bit of testosterone.

Also Available:

Eros™ Flat Handle Large (K456XXP)

Eros™ Flat Handle Compact (K451XXP)

Can't believe this knife opens faster than a switchblade, and it doesn't even have a spring I open and close it 100 times a day, marveling at that smooth ball bearing. I like knives with exotic hardwood scales, but they turn dark over time. These titanium scales will be just as beautiful in 20 years. And it's half the weight of the stainless steel version

I own the mini of this knife and nicknamed it the stinger. Incredibly sharp, a little difficult to maneuver in terms of opening it because it's only 4-5 inches long when open. The grip is fantastic to hold, excellent texture and beautiful. I have the same complaint with the clip. I'm not sure it's really necessary as the knife tends to stay put in your pocket due to the texture. I'm going to order the "big" version, but this does seem more suited to a woman's hand. Great gift for a lady to carry in her purse or pocket. I carry mine when I run or go out at night alone.

I have one of these Eros knives (and several other Ken Onion designed knives). I have two MINOR complaints about the Eros, and they are related. (1) The clip is rather cheesy aluminum, and bent out of shape way too easily to be effective, (2) There is no way to reverse it. I wound up taking the clip off altogether. The knife itself though is Onion's usual primo quality. It stays bloody well sharp. I would like a slightly larger one. I absolutely LOVE the scales of the Titanium model.

I first saw this knife while working in Afghanistan. It was in a German PX (Post Exchange) and I was very impressed with the knife. I would have bought it on the spot, but they were asking 269 Euros for it ($356.58). I decided to look for it online and snatched it from CRKT's site for only $225 I'm still very impressed with it and look forward to a long happy experience with my new Gentleman's Tactical from Ken Onion.

This knife lives up to its moniker, "Gentleman Tactical". The knife is sturdy, elegant, finely made, sharp-sharp-sharp, light, and hand friendly. It is a bit difficult to open and close at first, but as with any knife, it gets smooth with practice and wear. I too would be interested in a larger version of this knife - while it's perfect for deep carry, I would love to see a longer version. Careful when you first open it, I touched the tip to my finger and drew blood.
