Simple is significant. For a household name like Ken Onion, creativity reigns supreme. His designs run the gamut, inspired by everything from WWII heirlooms to dune buggies. But when he sat down to create the Prowess™ he had something different in mind. This everyday carry folder nods at what a damn good knife should be: simple and functional. No bare bones here, this one is all meat and potatoes.
From his workshop in Kaneohe, Hawaii, Ken Onion has carved out a spot for the Prowess™ among his line of hard work inspired everyday carry pocket knives. He spent days mulling over the perfect form—considering the shapes and geometry from a lineup of the most iconic knives of the past. The result: a modified drop point blade in a league all its own.
Paired with an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system and a subtle, textured flipper, it opens fast and digs into your workday without wasting a second. With a textured, black glass-reinforced nylon handle, your grip can withstand adverse conditions and stick to the job at hand. A subtle Yin and Yang detail on the pivot finishes the clean look.
Think subtlety falls short? The Prowess™ begs to differ.
