SOLD OUT - BONA FIDE™ LIMITED EDITION
World-renowned designer Ken Onion made Hawaii home many years ago. So, to pay tribute to his deep love of the island’s rich culture and verdant landscape, he designed the Bona Fide™ w/S35VN Blade Steel everyday carry folding knife to suggest the shape of a traditional Hawaiian waʻa, or canoe. And with Field Strip Gen II, it’s just as powerful as it looks.

Years ago from his shop in Kaneohe, Hawaii, Ken Onion invented the first generation of Field Strip technology. With the recrafted, reimagined, and simpler Field Strip Gen II, his creativity has boldly entered new territory. The Bona Fide™ w/S35VN Blade Steel folding knife is a substantial everyday carry measuring at just over 8” from the tip of the strong S35VN blade to the end of the substantial yet lightweight textured titanium handle. With the extra real estate, Ken adorned the handle in tikis, flowers, and Hawaiian iconography. Find the god of war on the front side and the goddess of fertility on the back seated by the tarot leaf.
The dropped tip of the blade has both the benefits of modified wharncliffe and modified drop point and deploys smoothly with the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system. Field Strip Gen II lets you quickly disassemble it without tools on the spot to purge it of grease and grime.
The knife that meets at the crossroads of futuristic usability and an homage to tradition.
How Field Strip Gen II Works
Slide the lever up to disassemble, easily releasing the knife into three components. Place the blade between the two handles in the closed position and slide the lever down to reassemble.
Ken is the real deal. The youngest ever inductee into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008, Ken is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful knife designers of all time.
In 1996 he created the first commercially successful assisted opening mechanism, and 20 years later unveiled his award-winning Field Strip Technology. Now, this world-changing innovation sets a new standard with Field Strip Gen II technology, a reinvention that’s bound to live up to its name.
