Columbia River K280TXP Ken Onion Hi Jinx

Columbia River K280TXP Ken Onion Hi Jinx
It’s a “rip and tear your way out of a bad situations” sort of beautiful. And that’s exactly how Ken Onion designed it. The Hi-Jinx is a gentleman’s beast of burden blade with all the classical curves and subtle elegance that has become the anthem of Ken Onion knife design. With a sand blasted 6AL4V titanium handle and premium Sleipner blade steel, satin drop point blade that is flat ground and measures nearly a quarter inch thick along the spine. The Hi-Jinx™ is made in Maniago, Italy with centuries of knife-making expertise milled into the scalloped handles. The blade opens with a flipper and includes an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system that facilitates fast and smooth opening. A titanium frame lock seals this knife in the open position like a bank safe and a lock overdraft protection is built into the ornamental pivot to avoid overextending the lock. The stainless steel pocket clip is reversible for left or right handed tip up carry and is designed to sit deep in the pocket. Ken Onion designed the Hi Jinx™ knife to stroll comfortably into a business meeting with all the confidence and beefy brawn necessary to cut a hole through the wall for a fast getaway– should the need arise.

This is a sweet little blade for everyday use. Its full-flat-ground CTS XHP steel blade offers exceptional cutting performance and offers both a Carson-inspired flipper and a fully functional “Trademark Round Hole” for opening, which is so smooth you would think it’s assisted. The handle features a solid titanium scale on one side and a cubic check carbon fiber/G10 laminate scale on the other which does look pretty cool. A robust Reeve Integral Lock with a long wearing hardened steel interface provides the blade with stout, durable lockup for years to come. The four-position pocket clip – a unique feature on a flipper – offers ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry. All in all a great EDC knife you will be proud to use and abuse.

GTI Series

We have carried White River Knives at the Knifecenter since 2012 and have been impressed with their products from the start. This company has access to very advanced machinery and experience in manufacturing precision tools that few companies, even large knife manufacturers, can match. They have come up with products that are really second to none we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. White River Knives has models that seem faintly similar to other knives from around the world because they take the best qualities of modern tactical knives, Finnish Puuko knives, various Fillet knives and put their own unique stamp of American design on it. Then they produce them out of the most modern and top quality materials. These are not bargain basement items, but quality items rarely are and White River Knives are all a good value. If you own a White River product, you have one of the finest knives produced anywhere and you should be able to own it, use it and pass it on to future generations just as you would other great knives of the world.

KnifeCenter started with this company very early in their existence. We recently increased our offering to include all of their models. These are great knives, made in Michigan to exacting standards by great folks that we are honored to work with.

White River Knives has collaborated with Justin Gingrich of GTI to produce this series of tactical/survival knives. Justin was a U.S. Army Ranger who served 10 years active duty. He is now a bladesmith and provides instruction in patrolling, demolitions, shooting and CQB techniques through Gingrich Tactical Innovations.
