Moving up in the world. Coined as the knife that looks like a pen, the CEO Compact by designer Richard Rogers lives on as a true gentleman’s folding knife to suit all types of pockets. Now more compact than before, it features a 2.61” blade compared to the original 3.11” blade length, making it even easier to transport from the home to the office for everyday functionality. Designed as an ambidextrous carry, there’s no wrong way to hold on—as long as you’re hanging on tight. Because a firm grip is exactly what you’ll need when engaging the flipper to set IKBS™ into swift motion. Just like its super smooth deployment, the CEO Compact is nothing but slick.

Richard Rogers

Magdalena, New Mexico 

Though he’ll tell you he’s only been seriously designing for four years, his extensive list of awards dating back to ‘97 paint a diferent story. Richard Rogers is modest as modest comes, creating some of the simplest, most practical everyday carry folders in the industry. When he’s not at the bench, he’s at the helm of a working cattle ranch out in the arid shrublands of the southwest. His life both as a rancher and a designer are governed by one serious principle: “good enough” isn’t acceptable. We’re on board.
