Ken Onion infamously pushes the limits of knife design with every new creation that’s released from his Kaneohe, HI shop. The Helical™ is no exception. With a hardworking powder coated D2 tanto blade, it’s quick to dig into an unopened box or snip a loose thread. An understated flipper doesn’t get in the way when you slip it into a pocket, but it quickly deploys the blade—when open, a locking liner secures it in place.
The twisted handles are the showstopper, carefully designed to fit snugly in your palm and outlast any mud, sweat, and grime it encounters.
The Helical™ is a twisted take on an old classic.
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.
