Though small, the Tuna™ Compact evokes the power of one of the world’s largest and fastest fish. It takes the subtle elegance of designer Lucas Burnley’s original Tuna™ and shrinks it down into an ultra-compact folding knife. With a profile that suggests strong forward momentum and a blade shape that looks like a deep-sea carnivore, this everyday carry slices through packages and boxes faster than a Bluefin slices through the swell on a taut line.
- Smooth Opening: IKBS™ ball bearing pivot deploys the blade smooth
- Easy To Sharpen: High carbon stainless steel blade takes an edge well
- Easy Opening: Thumb stud allows for fast opening with one hand
- Exceptional Grip: G10 handle provides exceptional grip in all conditions
- Brute Strength: Frame lock utilizes a thick lock bar to secure the blade
- Low Profile: Pocket clip provides secure carry

A knife like this tends to take on much more than its size would suggest, thanks to it being so easy to carry on you at all times. The low-profile clip helps it ride comfortably in a pocket where you’ll barely notice it’s there thanks to a light weight of just 2.8 ounces.
When it’s time to jump to work, the hybrid handle provides a balance of all-weather grip and absolute strength thanks to G10 on one side and stainless steel on the other. Add in the easy-to-sharpen, high-carbon blade and a powerful frame lock that prevents the blade from closing accidentally, and this is one compact pocket knife that won’t let you down.
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.
