Ken Steigerwalt attacked our challenge head on from his shop in Orangeville, Pennsylvania. The stunning, balanced folding knife that is the Psych™ was his first iteration: proof that a calculated master needs no do-overs. The high-carbon stainless steel spear point blade is inspired by those used in WWII. With one false edge and a blood groove, the blade is built for whatever the garage can throw at it. It’s balanced by a G10 handle for excellent grip. The Glide Lock keeps the blade securely closed until you push the safety button down, slide the bolster locking mechanism up, and deploy the blade. Slide the bolster back down to lock the blade in place. To release, push the safety button once again and slide the bolster locking mechanism out.
Contemporary innovation meets classic design in the Psych™.
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.
