When he’s not creating, Designer Eric Ochs likes to take in the views of his Oregon backyard from over 8,000’. He’s climbed a handful of PNW volcanic peaks and channeled the power of perseverance from these missions into his hardworking designs. The proof is in the flipper opening and the fast, smooth IKBS™ that uses lubed ball bearings in the pivot to deploy the blade at lightning speed. It’s also built with a thumb disk for a more deliberate, manual open. Once it’s deployed, the locking liner adds a solid layer of safety without compromising on ease of one-handed closing capability. The woven carbon fiber handles are compact and solid in the hand and the practical satin-finished spear point blade thrives from the front country to the back. To polish the look, Ochs gave it a bronze pocket clip and pivot detail, earning it serious style points.

Backcountry utility and frontcountry style converge to create the Avant™.

Sherwood, OR 

Eric Ochs grew up with the Oregon backwoods constantly knocking at his door. In a way, his fate was sealed when his father gifted him his first knife when he was just six years old. Since then, he’s hard pressed to remember a day without one in his pocket. This self-taught talent is still inspired to this day by the pursuit of adventure in the Pacific Northwest’s rugged terrain from the top of the North Cascades to the lazy, meandering rivers at their feet.
