Ken Onion - "Though I have been a devout knife collector since childhood, collecting mostly
and anything else I could find, I was unaware of the
industry until 1989 when I saw an issue of Knives Illustrated at a local drug store. From there I found a local
named Stan Fujisaka and begged him to teach me. I made my first knife in November 1991 and have continued the craft since. While recovering from back surgery in 1996, I decided to try to design a folder that was easier to manipulate than what was available, and not a
. The result was the first assisted opening knife I called "Speed Safe
" After finding some information on the whole patent process and consultation from an attorney, I got my first patent, creating a whole new
category of knives
between manual and auto."
Ken Onion designs knives for Kershaw Knives,
Zero Tolerance Knives,
CRKT Knives and more.
Thank you for the excellent customer service! My boyfriend loves his straight razor and likes your website! You may have a new regular customer, he has an extensive pocket knife collection. :)
