(K490KKS) Shenanigan Tanto - Cold Forged Aluminum Handle - Combo Edge - Black - Designed by Ken Onion
K490KKS description
Custom knifemaker Ken Onion uses his form and function design prowess in the Shenanigan T folder, especially in the blade profile. This tactical knife version of the original utility work horse Shenanigan features a tanto blade shape that is purposely pointed for piercing, while having a high hollow grind ideal for a razor thin cutting edge. Blade actuation is quick and efficient with the use of the blade flipper. All blades are premium AUS 8 steel, black titanium nitride coated for heavy tactical use, non-glare, and corrosion resistant.

The Shenanigan T handle shape provides confident grip through nicely profiled palm swell, overall dimensional balance and a swept finger groove. A cold forged aluminum handle features texture checkering for non-aggressive, effective tactical grip.

This locking-liner folder design offers all of the tactical "tool" qualities you need—without drawing unwanted attention with its clean, sleek look.

I got this knife as a present from my wife and I absolutely love it. I've had a few knifes by Ken onion in the past and he has not let me down yet. The blade is single bevel however it is very sharp. The metal quality is great and the handle feels really nice in my hands. This is for sure my new EDC knife. The aluminum and blade have a nonslip coating on them that makes it easy to grip and doesn't reflect light making it more tactical. The price is a little much but in this case you get what you paid for, and then some. Would recommend twice

I purchased this knife as a gift. This is my first purchase from CRKT. This knife really caught my attention. I am very pleased with the quality and detail.

I bought this knife for my fiance who is a big fan of CRKT. He didn't realize that his said first production and that made him very happy. He loves the way it opens with just the flick of his wrist and is more than happy with the quality of this knife. It's now one he carries with him at all times. Highly recommended.
