It's a "rip and tear your way out of a sinking vehicle" sort of beautiful.
And that's exactly how Ken Onion designed it. The Hi-Jinx™ is a gentleman's beast of burden blade with all the classical curves and subtle elegance that has become the anthem of Ken Onion knife design. This gentleman's tactical knife has a sand blasted 6AL4V titanium handle and premium Sleipner blade steel. It has a satin drop point blade that is flat ground and measures nearly a quarter inch thick along the spine.
The Hi-Jinx™ is made in Maniago, Italy with centuries of knife-making expertise milled into the scalloped handles. The blade opens with a flipper and includes an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system that facilitates fast and smooth opening. A titanium frame lock seals this knife in the open position like a bank safe and a lock overdraft protection is built into the ornamental pivot to avoid overextending the lock.
The stainless steel pocket clip is reversible for left or right handed tip up carry and is designed to sit deep in the pocket. Ken Onion designed the Hi Jinx™ knife to stroll comfortably into a business meeting with all the confidence and beefy brawn necessary to cut a hole through the wall for a fast getaway-- should the need arise.
Aw, this is SOME KNIFE I was just crazy enuff to lay out the
money for one. Thank goodness I searched the Net and found a reasonble price I could more easily afford. It has a beatiful
"heft" to it, akin to a Kershaw Tyrade or Offset knife. The 1/4
inch thick blade is impressive. The leather wrap-sheath is high
quality and smells great if a bit impractical in my opinion. If
you can find an available one at a price you can afford - go for it - you won't be disappointed :)

Stunning, sturdy and sharp. What's not to like? One of my favorites of all time.

I picked up two of these at Blade 2014. When I first heard about the knife, I did not have very many expectations. Let me tell you, once I handled it.....believe me, the hype is real. This knife is amazing. I picked up a ton of knives from the show, ie. Norseman, ADV, Blount, Diskin, and several others. I am not saying this knife beats a 100% custom however, it was more then enough to put the show at a level of a complete success. I am blown away by this thing.
