A classic with a tough edge.

The name Kova™ springs from Finnish origin, meaning “tough, hard, or demanding a lot of effort to endure.” Designed by veteran knife designer, Ken Steigerwalt, the front lock folding knife’s strength and durability isn’t just in the name, it’s how it rises to face everyday tasks and challenges.
  • 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

DesignerKen SteigerwaltOrangeville, Pennsylvania

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.
