CRKT Kith 2.95" Front Lock Folding Knife by Ken Steigerwalt
This product is currently sold out.
The Kith is designed by veteran knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt, who takes inspiration from traditional midlock joints and backlock folders to create a whole new approach with his front lock design. Intuitively constructed, opening the blade feels second-nature, giving this knife’s Old English name for “friend” a whole other meaning.
- Easy to Sharpen: High carbon stainless steel blade takes an edge well
- Strong and Lightweight: Glass-reinforced nylon handle is durable and lightweight
- Safe and Secure: Unique front lock mechanism utilizes the liners as springs
- Ambidextrous: Thumb stud and front lock allows blade opening and closing with either hand
- Low Profile: Deep carry clip rides low in the pocket
Seasoned knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt of Orangeville, Pennsylvania reimagines traditional locking mechanisms with the Kith’s front lock feature, utilizing the knife’s liners as springs to create more ample space for the blade. Drawing from such tried and true lock designs, the knife’s strategically placed thumb stud and front lock allows for easy opening and closing with your preferred hand—achieving complete ambidextrous freedom.
With a 2.95” drop point blade featuring a thin, sturdy tip, the Kith accommodates to higher-precision work. Inspired by a classic rag micarta look, the handle upholds a simple and clean aesthetic that also allows for multiple grip and carry options. Checking both boxes for durability and lightweightness, this low-profile gentleman’s knife features a glass-reinforced nylon handle, making it a great everyday carry that won’t weigh you, or your pocket, down.
