When designer TJ Schwarz of Boise, Idaho says, “engineered for performance,” he means it. In college, he started selling hand-drawn pencil sketches of classic cars. His art was so striking that classic car owners began to solicit commissions. With a background in mechanical engineering and his budding business, he was drawn like a magnet to the automotive industry…until a high school friend talked him into designing a knife. Then everything shifted. Years later, he’s made a name for himself among knifemakers. And we’re proud to collaborate with him on the Caligo™ everyday carry pocket knife.
With a low-profile flipper opening and IKBS™ ball-bearing pivot mechanism, it goes from zero to sixty faster than a hot rod. Caligo™ is the Latin word for darkness, but you probably could have guessed that upon a first glance at the black oxide finish on the modified drop point blade. Coupled with the black anodized aluminum handles, it looks like it’s fresh off the showroom floor. The blue pivot ring elevates it to a league all its own.
Shift your everyday carry game into high gear with the Caligo™.
TJ was destined to be a car designer. In high school he discovered his uncanny ability to draw cars—in fact, he was so good at it that by the time he was in college, he was accepting commissions from classic car owners. Just as his career was starting down the automotive path, his good friend Bill Koenig of Koenig Knives intervened and everything shifted. Once he got a taste of knife design, he never looked back. So when he says, “engineered for performance,” he means it.
