Ken Onion’s Latest Twisted Aluminum Folder

The latest from master knifemaker Ken Onion, the Helical came to be when Ken postulated what it might look like if he twisted the rectangular handle of a knife in a vice grip. The result, like any other Ken Onion design, is an ergonomic-feeling folder with plenty of utility. Available in two styles—one with a satin-finished 8Cr14MoV blade and the other with a black oxide–coated D2 blade—the Helical is slim and lightweight. Despite weighing just 3.6 ounces, it measures over 8 inches long, offering plenty of blade length when you need it. To prevent accidental closure, the aluminum scales surround a sturdy liner lock. For carry, there’s a right-handed tip-up clip.

Note: At checkout, choose a satin-finished 8Cr14MoV blade or a black-finished D2 blade (+ $14). Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
