For a decorated knife designer, inspiration strikes anywhere. Like in a dune buggy.
This original Ken Onion design is ideal for those looking for a reliable everyday carry with a little something extra. The gussets of a metal dune buggy frame add strength and reduce weight — the Gusset Black by Ken Onion is extremely lightweight and earns serious style points.
Ken Onion has designed and created hundreds of award-winning knives during his career in his Kaneohe, Hawaii shop, many of which break both style and performance barriers. The Gusset is no exception.
It's an everyday carry with a head-turning design — one that is also highly functional — the open areas in the handle make for an extremely lightweight carry and one that's simple to clean. The drop point blade features a black Oxide finish and Triple Point Serrations. It closes on a smooth IKBS ball bearing pivot system, and the stainless steel handle is gusseted, making it look seriously engineered.
Ken Onion is the type of designer that’s familiar with the intersection of style and performance, and the Gusset Black lands exactly there.
