Thinner, lighter, universal.
The Crossbones is an extremely versatile everyday carry knife for cutting meat, opening envelopes, and everything in between. Designed under the tutelage of master designer Ken Onion, it holds up to high standards while reflecting a fresh, new design and function. The Crossbones practically disappears when you slide it into your pocket, but itíll come out ready to face any task at hand.
The Crossbones is modeled after the first custom release of designer Jeff Park from Mililani, Hawaii. Jeff has been Ken Onionís right hand shop man for over ten years now, and, after much goading, has finally released a custom design of his own. The slim blade features a full flat grind and is deployed swiftly and smoothly with an IKBSô Ball Bearing Pivot System. The brushed aluminum two-tone handle, when closed, resembles the shape of a dog bone and gives the Crossbone its name.
Devoid of fluff and frill, yet dependable and universal, the Crossbone is a manís best friend.
One fateful day in 2005, he walked into Ken Onionís shop in Kaneohe, Hawaii, and never left. Well, thatís not entirely true, but heís certainly made an impact on the world-class knife maker and has learned a thing or two along the way. Jeff Park is a detail-oriented type of guy, and by that we mean heís an absolute perfectionist, and it shows in his simple, yet flawless designs. Heís an artist in the most fundamental respect: form follows function, and his knives reflect a remarkable understanding of both.
