The CRKT Ripple brings the design quirks and aesthetics of the inimitable Ken Onion to an inexpensive and effective EDC flipper.
The Ripple Aluminum is the latest in the Ripple family, and it has knife people all aflutter.
It has a plain satin finished 3.125-inch blade made from 8Cr14MoV stainless steel that springs to life with a silky smooth action from the patented IKBS ball-bearing pivot system and a well placed flipper tab.
The modified drop point blade is as simple and versatile as they come. It's a classic shape you won't have any trouble using for EDC, whether you're opening boxes around the house or cooking at the campsite. A liner lock keeps the blade firmly open.
What really brings the design to life is the flowing ripple design in the now aluminum scales. The scales are anodized black and handbuffed to show the silver aluminum underneath. Not only does it offer an attractive and low-profile appearance but the aluminum scales feel secure in the hand.
Coming in at an overall length of 7.5 inches and a weigh of 2.5 ounces, the Ripple makes it easy to carry wherever you go.
Designed by Ken Onion, The Ripple is crafted from premium Stainless Steel. Fast and smooth ambidextrous flipper opener is aided by an innovative low frictionIKBS ball-bearing pivot system. The premium Acuto+ Stainless Steel blade features the "Ken Onion Drop Point." The Titanium Nitride coating is buffed for a "pocket worn" finish.
3.1 in. blade made from 8Cr14Mov, 58-59 HRC, steel with a 4.3 in. anodized aluminum, black handle. Overall length is 7.50 in. Includes pocket clip.
