Streamlined and straightforward, the Facet™ finds a home in the modern era of simplicity. A timeless everyday carry, knifemaker Ken Onion offers unassuming versatility and durability with a grooveless grip design and straight sheepsfoot blade. Enhanced with sturdy D2 blade steel, its 3.37” blade smoothly transitions into a sharp point, making it handy for everyday cutting, piercing, and slicing. Complete with curved edges along the handle, there’s also added comfort whenever the knife’s stowed away in your pocket.
Strategically designed, every curve and angle is in perfect harmony and alignment with the knife’s flipper, making it easy to get a firm grip. And a secure hold is exactly what you’ll want as the blade deploys smooth and fast thanks to the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system and Assisted Opening. Once the blade is locked in place, its firm resistance paves way to true brute strength when brandished across surfaces. When it’s time to move onto the next mission, its internal frame lock and deep pocket clip makes the Facet™ a secure carry for your pocket.
Simple in design. Smart in performance.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade opens at impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
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.
