The Ripple™ folding pocket knife has become the anchor of the popular "gentleman's tactical" knife series from Ken Onion and CRKT.
These new 2013 stainless steel handle versions ride low profile due to the considerate clip position and are designed to be used as an everyday carry pocket knife.
With their distinct look these knives will complement the refined taste of the distinguished gentleman. They slide in and out of a suit pocket easily and are also comfortable at home in your jeans in the garage.
Stylish curves and smooth flowing lines help to create the Ripple™ effect that defines the look of the handle. These distinctive frame locks feature an ambidextrous blade flipper for easy opening. The flipper style opener moves the blade with ease thanks to the smooth IKBS™ pivot system. The IKBS™ innovation is arguably the strongest, smoothest pivot system on the market.
The Ripple™ modified drop point blade with its high hollow grind affords the user a razor sharp
edge with plenty of utility to cut across a wide variety of everyday tasks.
The new Ripple™ - Stainless comes in 2.78 blade length (5.56 overall), Razor Sharp Cutting Edge version in both Gray and Bronze colors. There also is a larger blade size available in 3.16 (6.38 overall) with options of Razor-Sharp Cutting Edge or Veff™ Flat Top Serrations. All in Acuto 440 Steel 57-58 HRC.
I love this folder....one of the best I've owned. In the folded state it is thin and fits nicely in the pocket, not bulky. The machined grip(s) provide a comfortable and secure fit in the hand. The ball bearing pivot is smooth and solid. For the size and thinness the blade is impressively stout and locks open solid and extremely well-balanced. Great blade
Buying a few more to give as x-mas gifts.

Received one as a gift. Love the look, feel and action of this knife. After carrying it about 3 months it gummed up with lint and the blade would not lock, even after cleaning it out with a toothpick using the flipper it would not reliably lock open. I had to take it apart (ever so gently, tiny ball bearings) to return it to like new functionality. Otherwise 5 stars.
