For a smart, world-renowned, resourceful knife designer, inspiration strikes anywhere - even in a dune buggy! Created by legendary cutlery designer Ken Onion, CRKT's Gusset Pocket Knife is ideal for those looking for a reliable everyday carry with a little something extra. Onion has developed hundreds of award-winning knives in his Kaneohe, Hawaii shop, many of which are celebrated for breaking both style and performance barriers. The Gusset is no exception. Stainless steel gussets - like those found on any dune buggy frame - add strength and reduce weight, yielding a lightweight folder with serious style points. The open-frame design is also easier to clean, essential for getting rid of a hard day's grime. It's certainly a head-turning design, but it's also highly functional. The drop point blade features a gray titanium nitride (TiNi) finish and a sturdy frame lock. One-handed blade deployment is easy, quick and silky smooth, thanks to the handy flipper and CRKT's exclusive IKBS ball bearing pivot system. Ken Onion is the type of designer that’s familiar with the intersection of style and performance, and the CRKT Gusset Pocket Knife lands exactly there.
