Ken Onion Ripple gets a Redo
The Ripple series has been a great selection since they were introduced last year. This iteration has really dressed them up. The handles are a lot smoother with a steel material rather than the aluminum they formerly came with. The blade steel has also been upgraded to the Acuto 440 which comes harder and should give very good service to the user. The overall feel and “walk and talk” of the knives is, in our opinion, much improved. As always, they fly open on ball bearings making any spring assist mechanisms unnecessary.

The Ripple™ folding pocket knife has become the anchor of the popular “gentleman’s tactical” knife series from Ken Onion and CRKT.
These 2013 stainless steel handle versions ride low profile due to the considerate clip position and are designed to be used as an everyday carry pocket knife.
With their distinct look these knives will complement the refined taste of the distinguished gentleman. They slide in and out of a suit pocket easily and are also comfortable at home in your jeans in the garage.
Stylish curves and smooth flowing lines help to create the Ripple™ effect that defines the look of the handle. These distinctive frame locks feature an ambidextrous blade flipper for easy opening. The flipper style opener moves the blade with ease thanks to the smooth IKBS™ pivot system. The IKBS™ innovation is arguably the strongest, smoothest pivot system on the market.
The Ripple™ modified drop point blade with its high hollow grind affords the user a razor sharp edge with plenty of utility to cut across a wide variety of everyday tasks.
The Ripple™ – Stainless comes in 2.78 blade length (5.56 overall), Razor Sharp Cutting Edge version in both Gray and Bronze colors. There also is a larger blade size available in 3.16 (6.38 overall) with options of Razor-Sharp Cutting Edge or Veff™ Flat Top Serrations. All in Acuto 440 Steel 57-58 HRC.
