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.

CRKT Ken Onion Aluminum Ripple

The CRKT Ripple introduces a new knife to the line, an economical version with aluminum handles and a linerlock. The original Ripple models are available in two sizes, one with a 3.125″ blade, the other 2.7″ and both feature titanium nitride coated stainless steel handles and a framelock. Designed by well known knife maker Ken Onion, the Ripple integrates the IKBS internal knife ball-bearing system for super smooth and fast opening action. All the handles are CNC machined with the ripple pattern as well as over 40 small holes to lighten the weight of the knife. For a nearly 7.5″ overall knife, it’s extremely light at only 2.5 ounces.
