Available in four colors − red, green, orange, black − the Snap-on Ken Onion Large Wrinkle Knife features the Ikoma Korth Ball Bearing System (IKBS™), giving the knife one of the strongest, smoothest and fastest pivot systems available. Featuring an ambidextrous flipper, the IKBS system ensures smooth, fast opening without springs.
The Snap-On Ken Onion Wrinkle Knife is made from high carbon steel that provides superior cutting performance and incredible edge retention and also has a modified hollow ground drop point blade which reduces resistance when cutting. The cold forged anodized aluminum handle is durable, lightweight and built to withstand the abuse of a shop environment. The liner lock design with recessed liners and barrel spacers create a knife that is safe, strong and thin but still easy to close and clean.
