Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A — January 17, 2017

New knife tests the limit of function and design with hollow, gusseted handle.

CRKT® is releasing the Gusset™ folding everyday carry knife. Designed by Ken Onion of Kaneohe, Hawaii, it’s a knife that deserves a double-take: it’s not every day that you can see straight through the handle of a folder.

Ken Onion is one of the most decorated knife designers of all time—his creativity knows no bounds. For this innovative designer, inspiration can strike anywhere. Like in a dune buggy. A sleek drop point blade anchors this unique design with the strong practicality of a titanium nitride finish on the original, and a black oxide finish on the Gusset™ Black. This 3.6” blade, available in both plain and combination edge, will mow through anything that gets in its way.

The sturdy handle features cutouts reminiscent of the gussets in a dune buggy, and allows for a firm hold even while wearing gloves or in the grip of inclement weather. The sturdy frame lock provides confidence while the blade is open and in use. Deep grooves on the base of the blade make it easy to get a solid hold even when you’re doing detail work.

Ken Onion is the type of designer that’s familiar with the intersection of style and performance, and the Gusset™ lands exactly there.

The Gusset™ knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
The Gusset™ Black with Triple Point™ Serrations manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $59.99
