Ken Onion of Kaneohe, HI designed the Foresight™. This one is just another example of Ken’s tight mechanics and comfortable form in a blade that’s ready for your urban law enforcement and professional tactical needs. The 3.5-inch modified drop-point blade has a generous belly and re-curve cutting edge. It absolutely rips through anything that comes its way. Yet it opens like a well-oiled cutting machine thanks to the Assisted Opening innovation coupled with the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system.
What truly sets this blade apart though is how it feels when you hold it. The glass-reinforced nylon handle of the Foresight™ is purposefully styled and shaped with swept finger grooves and proper palm swell to provide a confident, comfortable grip no matter what the use. You’d swear the designer made a mold out of your own bare hand.
Hindsight may be 20/20, but with the Foresight™ you’ll show you can plan ahead when it comes to the right tools.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade swings open at impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
Ken is the real deal. The youngest ever inductee into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008, Ken 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. Now, this world-changing innovation sets a new standard with Field Strip Gen II technology, a reinvention that’s bound to live up to its name.
