Ken Onion

Location: Kaneohe, Hawaii | Years Designing: 25

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.
