CRKT released the limited edition Ken Onion-designed Hi Jinx knife at the 2014 BLADE Show in Atlanta and won the 2014 Overall Knife of the Year Award. Like some of the finest art prints, only a few are available to the public with 525 being built.
A high-end everyday carry knife for the distinguished gentleman, Ken Onionspared no expense handcrafting it with only the finest materials. A 6AL4V titanium handle looks good to the eye while a modified drop point style blade made with Böhler-Uddeholm Sleipner blade steel looks good in use.
The knife also features an easy-opening IKBS ball bearing pivot system to make this one of the smoothest flippers on the market. Crafted in Italy, the new Hi Jinx isn’t just a blade. It’s a work of art. The Hi Jinx knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $500.00.
What follows is a brief excerpt of the Ken Onion-designed Hi Jinx knife specs. The plain edged blade is 3,320 "(84.3 mm) long and sports a 0.200" (5.0 mm) thickness, made of Böhler-Uddeholm Sleipner steel hardned to HRC 59-58 and satin finished. The overall length is 4,780 "(121.4 mm) closed, and 8,000" (203.2 mm) with the blade open. The weight is about 6.4 oz.(181 g). The grips are built out of 6AL4V Titanium.
