CRK280TXP: Ken Onion Hi Jinx
Winner of the 2014 BLADE Show Overall Knife of the Year Award and limited production of only 525 numbered pieces.

It's a "rip and tear your way out of a sinking vehicle" sort of beautiful.

And that's exactly how Ken Onion designed it. The Hi-Jinx is a gentleman's beast of burden blade with all the classical curves and subtle elegance that has become the anthem of Ken Onion knife design. This gentleman's tactical knife has a sand blasted 6AL4V titanium handle and premium Sleipner blade steel. It has a satin drop point blade that is flat ground and measures nearly a quarter inch thick along the spine.

The Hi-Jinx™ is made by LionSteel in Maniago, Italy with centuries of knife-making expertise milled into the scalloped handles. The blade opens with a flipper and includes an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system that facilitates fast and smooth opening. A titanium frame lock seals this knife in the open position like a bank safe and a lock overdraft protection is built into the ornamental pivot to avoid overextending the lock.

The stainless steel pocket clip is reversible for left or right handed tip up carry and is designed to sit deep in the pocket. Ken Onion designed the Hi Jinx™ knife to stroll comfortably into a business meeting with all the confidence and beefy brawn necessary to cut a hole through the wall for a fast getaway-- should the need arise.

Pros: Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Lock Type
Cons: None
Just the Right Feel
Perfect design and great materials - I like the way it feels in my hand. It is a bit on the heavy side but, to me, that is a good thing as I like to know my knife is there. Blade deploys and closes flawlessly...really no negatives on this one.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
Cons: Weight, None
Too heavy
Seems like they almost hit a homerun with this knife. Nice clip, great design, ergonomic. Here is the problem...A 3.3 inch blade THAT WEIGHS 6 OUNCES? Is that a joke? How does this win awards? Pay attention people! Get it 4oz or less.

Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
OK knife at full retail; Good at 400.00; excellent at 300.00
I have mix feeling about this knife. Great blade! IKBS works well but the the jimping on the flipping stub is to sharp and hurts your finger. Closing this knife is not easy, flipping stub will pinch you most of the time and you need to be careful to clear you finger from blade. jimping on top of blade is way to short, useless. Small pocket cilp, does not match the design. I love the leather sheath. This is a beautiful folder with great materials and an outstanding thick blade, but it is not perfect and you most get it at the right price.
