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.

Ken Onion Swindle – An honestly Great Deal

Ken Onion Swindle – An honestly Great Deal
Columbia River’s models that are designed by world famous knifemaker Ken Onion have a great reputation for innovation and quality. This latest release, the “Swindle” is a really innovative pocketknife. The handles are super slim and smooth allowing for easy pocket carrying. The IKBS system of blade pivot is very slick and the opening is just silky smooth. The overall shape is very unique and artsy and the hollow grind is so deep that the edge is really hair thin. We like this folder a lot. The steel is basic and we wish it was a little (or a lot!) more premium, but, as it is, this is a great every day carry knife. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

Zero Tolerance 0350 Composite Knives

Zero Tolerance 0350 Composite Knives

When we heard that Zero Tolerance was going to be offering their awesome 0350 in ZDP-189 steel, we were blown away. Then, they announced a composite version with an S30V spine and a ZDP-189 cutting edge, and blew us away again.

Offered in a satin finish, these gorgeous knives allow the user to clearly view the delineation between the two steels. ZDP-189 is one of the highest-performing stainless steels in the knife industry today, prized for its hardness and edge retention capabilities-and results in a WICKEDLY sharp knife (as my index finger discovered while writing this blog entry).

Designed by Ken Onion and manufactured in the USA, the composite 0350s offer the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opener, allowing smooth one-handed opening. These knives sport textured G-10 handles an adjustable quad-carry pocket clip. They’re available in both plain and partially-serrated edges. Individually numbered, these limited-edition knives are going fast, so pick one up (carefully!) at www.knifecenter.com!
