(Shenanigan6061) Shenanigan - Designed By Ken Onion
Shenanigan6061 description
We asked Ken Onion, Hawaiian custom knifemaker, designer, inventor and member of the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame, to give us his ideas for a no-nonsense line of sport and work folders. Our goal was to offer great utility and quality in a rugged high-value locking liner folder. We think we've met the sport knife goal in Ken's new aluminum-framed Shenanigan™.

Even though Ken is known for his assisted opening folders, in this case, the combination of the open-build frame, blade flipper, and lubrous washers and bronze bushings at the pivot allow for fast one hand opening in an exceptional knife.

All models feature 3.25" long blades with a classic Ken Onion profile. There is a modified drop point with a slight recurve and a swedged top edge. Both Razor- Sharp or Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are available.

Shenanigan™ Aluminum. The sport model features an AUS8 stainless steel blade and a cold-forged 6061-T6 aluminum frame with a beadblast finish, clear anodized for durability. The stainless steel liner lock is a strip lock, inset into one frame to save weight. Finally, soft, textured, injection-molded scales are inset in the frame. This makes for a frame that is exceptionally strong, lightweight and comfortable. Finally, the sport model blades receive a black titanium nitrite coating for corrosion resistance.

The combination of contoured handle, index finger notch and checkered grip pattern make the Shenanigan models very friendly to the hands.

Both models come with a thoughtfully designed custom stainless steel pocket/gear clip with a black corrosion-resistant coating.

Ken Onion isn't playing any tricks here. CRKT is pulling the Shenanigans.

Purchased mine from a dealer at a gun show. It has been my EDC knife since that day. Absolutely LOVE it. Recently, the locking liner no longer functions. I will be in the process of warranty testing shortly. CRKT RESPONSE: Yes please make sure to send that knife in for warranty for repairs. We are glad to help!

My son gave this to me for Christmas. It has become my constant companion. The blade is great along with the build of the knife.
