Recently anointed the Best Imported Knife of 2012 at the Blade Show in Atlanta, the CRKT Foresight has now arrived at the KnifeCenter. This truly is a robust tactical folder with a 3.5″ Titanium-Nitride coated AUS 8 blade, available with or without serrations. The handle is extremely well contoured, anodized aluminum to provide a firm hold on the knife in both the forward and reverse grips. The added finger grooves are identical on both sides so both righties and lefties can get an extremely comfortable grip for hard use cutting. Featuring the Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS), you might think this knife is an assisted model as it flies open so fast. It’s just that silky-smooth. The clip is quite strong and carries deeply in the pocket but is only situated for tip down, right hand carry. This is actually a safety feature of the design to minimize the chances of the blade opening when it’s entering or exiting your pocket. An extremely stout folding knife design, the Foresight is a great tactical blade that is perfectly designed to be a large EDC folder as well. You can find this new brilliant Ken Onion knife at www.knifecenter.com.
More from CRKT:
The new CRKT Foresight™ folding knife designed by Ken Onion draws on the tried and true formula of “form follows function”. Its formidable profile looks like a chiseled physique just waiting to pounce on your next cutting task with all of the control and efficiencies you would expect in a high-quality folding knife. The cold-forged aluminum handle of the Foresight™ is purposefully styled and shaped with swept finger grooves and proper palm swell to provide a confident, comfortable grip no matter the use at hand.
Ken designed the 3.5-inch modified drop-point blade with a generous belly and re-curve cutting edge to maximize tool utility. And, the IKBS ball bearing pivot system coupled with Interframe style mechanism, make opening and closing the blade as smooth as silk. Precision ground of AUS 8 stainless steel and coated with Black Ti Nitride finish… this Ken Onion knife looks cool and is plenty sharp. Available in both Plain Edge and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated Edge models.
Bottom line, some say hindsight is 20/20, but perhaps a smarter way to think is that having the Foresight™ shows you plan ahead when it comes to having the right tools.
