Ever since he was a kid, whenever Ken Steigerwalt needed a knife, he would just make one. Now a renowned innovator with 35 years of designing knives under his belt, Ken introduces the Kova™. Inspired by older style midlock and backlock folders, Ken chose a front lock design using the knife’s liners as springs for the front lock, thus creating even more space for the blade. Simplifying the internal mechanism also impacted the exterior composition—making the knife more convenient to hold, with far less requirement to change your grip when opening or closing.
Complete with a 3.5” drop point blade and glass-reinforced nylon handles to showcase the subtle pattern work, the Kova™’ is the dependable everyday carry. With the front lock design, there’s no question this heavy duty knife will please both right and left handed users, with the ability to open and close the knife with a single hand.
For those looking for an everyday savior, choose the Kova™ for strength and simplicity.
Ever since he was a kid, if Ken needed a knife, he just made one. His first one was built from a saw blade at the kitchen table using a vise, files, and sandpaper. Needless to say, he’s gone on to create more highly designed knives that have won him 11 Blade Show awards in seven consecutive years, including two Best Folders awards and one Best Folder of the Year. He also co-designed the patented Fire Safe® safety innovation, which is used on many CRKT® blades.
