Come along and see what I see...

This is a follow up vid to my original review of the Ken Onion Ripple. Many have commented on my poor lighting. Now I have a bit more experience and a much better camcorder I decided to make this as a companion to the first vid. This vid has close ups and way better lighting so the knife is properly shown. My first video showcasing this knife has accumulated the most amount of hits out of all my knife reviews so that's why I wanted to showcase it again in better clarity. This is not a review so please watch the first one for the full specs.

Well, my friends, we've been waiting about 4 months for this unveiling, and it does not disappoint! Check out the finished product of a customization collaboration by Toadstkr, 1allspub and TheApostleP, on an otherwise unremarkable offering by CRKT and lionsteel, the Hi Jinx. I think it came out pretty well. Let us know what you think!

Ken Onion's first knife design for CRKT is impressive. We find the typical fluid lines of his designs, and this one is particularly futuristic looking. A closer inspection is in order!

The Ripple was created as a collaboration between Cutlery Hall of Fame knife maker Ken Onion and CRKT. The Ripple is the first collaboration between Onion and CRKT but shows promise for future works together. The Ripple was designed after a building that Onion had seen. He wanted to create a gentlemens tactical knife that represented the same strength and elegance that the building did. I enjoy every knife that Ken Onion designs and the Ripple is no different. With a light carry weight, small form factor and razor sharp edge it is a great companion or any EDC task. I have been extremely happy with the Ripple as my EDC and recommend this knife to any one who is interested. Thanks for watching.

This is a beautiful knife. Tough, thin and functional. This knife is noteworthy for its almost unbelievable silky smooth and fast opening action. Even the best conventional blade pivot bearings have some degree of friction which resists initial movement. In contrast, the Ripple™ blade opening action is almost friction-free due to the IKBS ball bearing system. This innovative and simple design places eight uncaged ball bearings on each side of the blade pivot in races, which are machined into the stainless steel handle. Not only is opening and closing exceptionally smooth, the IKBS system is durable, requires little maintenance, and yields a folder with great rigidity and no blade play.

A limited production run CRKT Hi Jinx. 525 made in Italy by Lionsteel designed by Ken Onion and customized by: theapostlep video--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnODf90Vsk0 toadstkr video--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd6k5ojb6mA 1all'spub video--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF4X2dCz8fA I was not excited by this knife when it arrived. At first glance, it's big, heavy, not my style, expensive and hearing from Rob (theapostlep) had quality control issues out of box. I gave it some time and surprisingly despite my prejudices warmed up to it a little. I think this knife is geared more towards collectors. It would take a certain knife collector to appreciate this knife for what it is. As this one of a kind custom Hi Jinx stands, it is a good knife.

This is the CRKT Eros, brand new knife design, cant even buy it on their site yet, lol. It has been nicknamed "The Gentleman's Folder" because this knife is almost more pocket jewelry than a pocket knife, with a price tag to match. The titanium frame is expensive. This thing is AMAZING tho! Wicked sharp out of the box as you can see, a pocket scalpel. FEATHER WEIGHT!!!! Very thin. Frame thickness: 0.315in, Closed length: 4in, Blade length: 3in, Weight: 1.4oz!!!!! Blade material: Acuto+ (a-coot-o plus) Sorry bout the goofiness, i'm still drooling all over this knife lol

http://shrsl.com/?eigo ^^Buy at bladehq (request knife-wielding bird drawing) or https://goo.gl/NM492g Get it at Amazon^^ Many of us have just started hearing the name, Rob Carter during the 2016 production knife year. For good reason, knife manufacturers have started to produce collaboration knives from Rob's designs. CRKT has made two budget friendly versions of Rob's Cricket custom knife. Today we take a look at the larger of the two and probably the most popular as well. At around $30, this knife delivers on a quality feel and action. Not without a couple of flaws however, I feel to make it nicer it needs to see a price increase. Worth the price if this design appeals to you though. https://youtu.be/6Wsi1p8-oqo Get to know Rob with the Wieners and Steel crew at Blade Show 2016 (Rob is the only southern accent in the group) https://youtu.be/Tad92kq-eJA Part 2 Thanks for watching, give us a quick like before you go! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Do we have too many knives?

This is an excellent knife at the 60 dollar price point. The Acuto steel performs very well, about like VG-10. The flipper is very functional and the knife is super solid with zero play in any direction. Not many knives can say that period, much less a knife this affordable. I highly recommend this knife if you are looking for a great EDC knife that won't break the bank! I greatly appreciate any amount of Paypal donations, and as always please do not feel obligated to do so: [email protected]

CRKT Ikoma Sampa Folding Knife (3.125" Satin Plain) 5330 An encouraging trait of the international custom knifemaking community is a sense of brotherhood and the willingness to share and encourage other members. As an example, take the friendship of Hawaiian knifemaker Ken Onion and Brazilian knifemaker Flavio Ikoma. Ken has encouraged use of the Ikoma Korth ball bearing pivot system on his CRKT knives, and had also counseled Flavio on the directions his designs might take. The new Sampa knife, Flavio Ikoma's first folder designed for CRKT, is the fruit of that friendship. Ken suggested the general parameters of a "gentleman's tactical" folder and Flavio did the rest. In overview, this is a lightweight and stylish locking liner folder with a clean open build and exceptionally fast and fluid flipper opening. The blade is premium AUS 8 stainless steel in a drop point shape with recurve and high hollow grind. The Model 5330 has a high satin finish with a Razor - Sharp cutting edge, while the Model 5335K has a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge with a black titanium nitride blade coating. The Sampa frames are cold-forged 6061-T6 aluminum, which is clean-up machined, gray anodized for a titanium look, and then surface finished, revealing a bright surface pattern which aids grip. The strip locking liner is 420J2 stainless steel, precision inset into one frame. Flavio developed the IKBS ball bearing system to be entirely raceless, the bearings running in channels machined into the blade and frame. In this case, we have incorporated a stainless steel race/bushing in the aluminum frames for long life. The IKBS pivot system is durable and requires little maintenance, yielding a folder with great rigidity and no blade play. A spring-loaded ball detent keeps the blade securely closed until needed. Then, a fast press on the flipper yields instant opening and lock-up. A custom removable Teflon-coated stainless clip is standard on both models. This is clearly a personal knife for the high-achiever who values innovative design and custom-knife quality in a personal accessory. It is also an excellent value. Specifications: Overall Length: 7.25" (184 mm) Blade Length: 3.125" (79 mm) Blade Thickness: 0.115" (2.9 mm) Blade Steel: AUS 8, 58-59 HRC Closed Length: 4.25" (108 mm) Weight: 2.7 oz. (77 g)
