Ken Steigerwalt

Location: Orangeville, Pennsylvania | Years Designing: 35

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.
