Columbia River CRKT 6040 Ken Steigerwalt Radic Assisted Folding Knife 3.332" Satin Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles
CR6040: 6040 Radic, Designed by Ken Steigerwalt
If there's one universal truth to the man behind the Radic, it's that if he wants something done, he'll do it himself. That was true when, at age 15, Ken Steigerwalt made his first knife sitting at his kitchen table, and it's certainly true now as he releases this smarter, simpler, tougher everyday carry knife.
If you're looking for something muted, covert, and slightly boring, don't check Ken Steigerwalt's garage in Orangeville, Pennsylvania. Ken is the type of guy that toes the line between knife designer and artist, and the Radic everyday carry folding knife is definitive proof.
The first clue that this is no ordinary everyday carry (it is named after the word "radical", after all) is the eye-catching modified sheepsfoot blade complete with a satin finish. One push on the blade's prominent thumb stud, and you'll be sure it's a showpiece. Manually open the blade 30 degrees, and the OutBurst spring assisted mechanism jumps to life, completing the rotation until it's caught by the locking liner and secured in place. Extended jimping on the spine finishes the sleek look.
Tough G10 handles prove that a true artist knows form follows function. They're at once incredibly durable, easy to keep ahold of no matter the conditions, and shaped perfectly to balance out the burly blade.
Ken's not one to play by the rules. The artful utility of the Radic shows his true colors.
