After a decade of honing and refining, we unveiled Ken Onion’s industry-shifting Field Strip in 2016. While the innovation itself is definitively Onion, Designer Lucas Burnley of Orleans, Massachusetts set out to create something in his own revered style. The result is a hybrid blade shape—falling between a modified sheepsfoot and a tanto style. The glass-reinforced nylon handle is a continuation of the unique look, designed around angular shapes and contours that are reminiscent of an engine.
The Prequel™ is high aesthetic and utility from the inside out.
How Field Strip Works
Field Strip technology lets you easily disassemble your knife for cleaning without tools. To disassemble, close the knife, push the front release lever up. Then spin the rear release wheel clockwise—once you feel the handle release, pull it up and away. Handle and blade come apart easily. To bring the knife back together, place the blade and handle into the closed position—press and hold the pivot. Once the pivot is seated correctly, rotate the release wheel counter-clockwise until snug. Push front lever down. The knife is restored to full working order.

When you ask Lucas what drew him to the knife world as a teenager, he’ll tell you it was stories of survival, off-path adventures with his father, and a healthy dose of action movies.
Over the years, he has experimented with a broad range of styles to artfully combine classical examples with modern materials and techniques, such as with his Obake™ knife. Lucas believes knives are a personal expression of independence. We couldn’t agree more.
