We asked Ken Onion, Hawaiian custom knife maker, designer, inventor and member of the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame, to give us his ideas for a no-nonsense line of sport and work folders. Our goal was to offer great utility and quality in a rugged high-value locking liner folder.

Ken came up with a work knife version featuring an almost indestructible glass filled nylon frame that we call the Shenanigan™ Z. Even though Ken is known for his assisted opening folders, in this case, the combination of the open-build frame, blade flipper, and lubrous washers and bronze bushings at the pivot allow for fast one hand opening in an exceptional knife. All models feature 3.25" long blades with a classic Ken Onion profile.

There is a modified drop point with a slight recurve and a swedged top edge. Both Razor- Sharp or Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are available. The stainless steel liner lock is a strip lock, inset into one handle to save weight. This makes for a knife that is exceptionally strong, lightweight and comfortable.

Shenanigan™ Z offers our workhorse AUS 8 blade steel in a bead-blast finish, plus a frame of tough, glass filled nylon. This is a rugged, value-priced knife that can be used daily on the job. It is one that will take the worst abuse from impacts, abrasion, and solvents and still look good. The combination of contoured handle, index finger notch and checkered grip pattern make the Shenanigan models very friendly to the hands.

The knife comes with a thoughtfully designed custom stainless steel pocket/gear clip with a black corrosion-resistant coating.

Ken Onion isn't playing any tricks here. CRKT® is pulling the Shenanigans.

Ken is the real deal. The youngest ever inductee into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008, he 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. As the designer of the successful Eros™ folder series, as well as the award-winning Hi Jinx™, Ken never seems to be at a loss for ideas.
