The Kith is designed by veteran knifemaker Ken Steigerwalt, who takes inspiration from traditional mid-lock joints and lockback folders to create a whole new approach with his front lock design. Intuitively constructed, opening the blade feels second-nature, giving this knife's Old English name for “friend" a whole other meaning.

Ken reimagines traditional locking mechanisms with the Kith's front lock feature, utilizing the knife's liners as springs to create more ample space for the blade. Drawing from such tried and true lock designs, the knife's strategically placed thumb stud and front lock allows for easy opening and closing with your preferred hand—achieving complete ambidextrous freedom.

The drop point blade has a thin, sturdy tip, allowing the Kith to accommodate higher-precision work. Inspired by a classic rag micarta look, the handle is made from glass-reinforced nylon, making it a great everyday carry that won't weigh you, or your pocket down.

The blade measures 3" is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a hardness of 57-59 Rc. The closed length measures 3-3/4". The pocket clip is in position for a tip-up carry. Weighs only 2.3 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $44.99.
