As the son of a legendary knifemaker, Kenny Onion is no stranger to rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty in the shop. Growing up in Hawaii, he spent countless hours with his famous father, Ken Onion building elaborate projects like gas-powered scooters and potato launchers. It was this sense of curiosity and love of design that led Kenny to pursue a career as a maker and machinist.

 He spent the better part of a decade mastering CAD and collaborating with his father, and fellow knifemaker Jeff Park, to produce the graphics on their knives using fiber optic lasers. Kenny’s first production knife, the Bamboozled, is a testament to his refined aesthetic and the subtle influences from his father – while standing on his own as a legend in the making.
