Unleash your imagination.

Equal parts genius and magician, custom knifemaker Princeton Wong never fails to deliver imaginative, captivating, and supremely unique designs. The Nucleus is a striking example of his individual approach to knifemaking; it looks like no other folder, its aggressive angles carving the profile of a stealth fighter. Princeton drew inspiration from the giant robots, or mecha, featured in his favorite childhood TV show, Mobile Suit Gundam. But it’s not just about looks; the Nucleus can be opened in three different ways thanks to front and rear flippers and a finger hole in the blade.
  • Superior Performance 12C27 blade steel for excellent edge retention
  • Fast Opening Front flipper deploys the blade fast
  • Smooth Opening IKBS™ ball bearing pivot deploys the blade smooth
  • Brute Strength Frame lock utilizes a thick lock bar to secure the blade
  • Tough and Durable G10 with stainless steel handle combines durability and strength
