He has been making custom knives since 1991 and invented the first commercially successful assisted opening mechanism in 1996, creating a new product class. He holds more than 36 patents on locks, gadgetry, mechanisms, safeties, and designs. He has collaborated on production designs with a number of prominent manufacturers, and conducts classes on knife technology around the world. He also teaches classes in design, knifemaking and business in his home state of Hawaii. In addition to cutlery, Ken has a wide variety of other product designs to his credit and in the works.

Cons: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use
elegant super-light gentleman's carry
The title says it: I've been carrying this elegant, feather-weight folder for the past few weeks in place of my usual much costlier small William Henry. Handle is nicely carved and the thumb flip works easily one handed. The one weakness I find is that releasing the framelock to close is awkward and a little risky to do one-handed.
