Columbia River Gerry McGinnis Premonition Pocketknife
New Gerry McGinnis Premonition from Columbia River

We are having a premonition… That you will love this knife! The Premonition is the latest pocket knife from Columbia River’s boy wonder, Gerry McGinnis, who is producing a plethora of pocketknives while completing an engineering degree at North Carolina State University. The Premonition follows Mr. McGinnis’ trend of flipper opening knives, which allows for assisted-fast opening without the weight or potential legal issues of the assisted mechanism. When opened, the flipper also acts as finger guard. The opening speed is perfectly complemented by a thin, sleek design, light weight, and great balance. The black and blue G-10 handles round everything off.

How can we offer all of this starting at $28.95? You’ll just have to check your crystal ball.

How does Gerry McGinnis keep his grades up as a student at North Carolina State University and still keep coming up with new and interesting knife designs for Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT)? We don’t know, but here is one more that we just couldn’t resist putting into production.

Premonition. This smaller every day carry (E.D.C.) features a precisely angled flipper for extra-fast one-hand blade opening. Because of the flipper, the knife does not need either thumb studs or nail nicks for opening.

The frame is a lightweight open build of hand-contoured, layered blue/black G10, with a stainless steel strip lock inlaid into a machined relief in one handle frame. The frame is curvilinear to fit the hand, and is amply skeletonized with nine lightening holes on the other frame. The black Zytel back spacer is forward on the handles, allowing maximum blade length for this length of handle.
