KITH

Designed by Ken Steigerwalt in Orangeville, Pennsylvania
Familiar. Just like an old friend.
The Kith is designed by veteran knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt, who takes inspiration from traditional midlock joints and backlock folders to create a whole new approach with his front lock design. Intuitively constructed, opening the blade feels second-nature, giving this knife’s Old English name for “friend” a whole other meaning.
  • Easy to Sharpen: High carbon stainless steel blade takes an edge well
  • Strong and Lightweight: Glass-reinforced nylon handle is durable and lightweight
  • Safe and Secure: Unique front lock mechanism utilizes the liners as springs
  • Ambidextrous: Thumb stud and front lock allows blade opening and closing with either hand
  • Low Profile: Deep carry clip rides low in the pocket
$44.99

Familiar. Just like an old friend. The Kith is designed by veteran knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt, who takes inspiration from traditional midlock joints and backlock folders to create a whole new approach with his front lock design. Intuitively constructed, opening the blade feels second-nature, giving this knife’s Old English name for “friend” a whole other meaning.

Seasoned knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt of Orangeville, Pennsylvania reimagines traditional locking mechanisms with the Kith’s front lock feature, utilizing the knife’s liners as springs to create more ample space for the blade. Drawing from such tried and true lock designs, the knife’s strategically placed thumb stud and front lock allows for easy opening and closing with your preferred hand—achieving complete ambidextrous freedom.

With a 2.95” drop point blade featuring a thin, sturdy tip, the Kith accommodates to higher-precision work. Inspired by a classic rag micarta look, the handle upholds a simple and clean aesthetic that also allows for multiple grip and carry options. Checking both boxes for durability and lightweightness, this low-profile gentleman’s knife features a glass-reinforced nylon handle, making it a great everyday carry that won’t weigh you, or your pocket, down.

Plain and simple: the Kith is the familiar, everyday favorite.

Ever since he was a kid, if Ken needed a knife, he just made one. His first one was built from a saw blade at the kitchen table using a vise, files, and sandpaper. Needless to say, he’s gone on to create more highly designed knives that have won him 11 Blade Show awards in seven consecutive years, including two Best Folders awards and one Best Folder of the Year. He also co-designed the patented Fire Safe® safety innovation, which is used on many CRKT® blades.
