CRKT Ken Onion Foresight Liner Lock Knife (3.5" Black) K220KKP

The Ken Onion designed CRKT Foresight folding knife is the winner of the 2012 BLADE Magazine award for "Imported Knife of the Year."

The Foresight folder is a tactical design that features a 3-1/2 inch modified drop-point blade with a generous belly and recurve cutting edge to maximize tool utility. The IKBS ball bearing pivot system coupled with Interframe style mechanism, make opening and closing the blade as smooth as silk. The blade is made from AUS 8 stainless steel and coated with black Ti-Nitride. The cold-forged aluminum handle of the Foresight is purposefully styled and shaped with swept finger grooves and proper palm swell to provide a confident, comfortable grip.

Customer Reviews

Mini grip review contest . Foresight
Jake c. on Jan 21, 2018

This knife is incredible . A design that could only be crafter by a robot samurai, who, is his free time is a master Black smith .The shape and feel in hand is as if it was custom molded to your grip. Fingers follow the grooves effortlessly and hold on tight , and despite the knifes large size fits descretly into the pocket tip down thanks to its low profile pocket clip .people at the supermarket won’t even know that you’re essentially carrying what would be darth Vader’s pocket knife . Amazing knife worth the money .

Not the Usual Ken Onion
Bria H. on Nov 8, 2020

I've owned this knife for about a year. Its tough, a bit unique and fits my hand well. On top of that I think it looks very very cool. The worst part, by far, is releasing the liner lock. The lock is flush with the aluminum scales. There's nothing for my thumb to push without digging it into the gap. It's slow and makes even my (though) thumb sore if I'm using it a lot. It might otherwise be a good fidget knife also. Unfortunately it definitely is not. The ball bearing pivot is great but it's hard to appreciate. When I dig in to release the blade it falls a couple inches and stops against my thumb. After that it's impossible to keep the lock disengaged and let the blade swing freely.

Not happy
Rick H. on Jun 28, 2021

Can't give it one star, beautiful knife but poor action. Definitely not worth the extra $25 over the K220KKP with the spring assist.Sent blade hq a message and they said different steel and made in China not Taiwan but box says made in Taiwan. Should know better, no more CRKT, ill stick to Kershaw. Rick H.

90$ for the bearings
Maxwell M. on Jun 20, 2021

Imported, tip down, liner lock in aus-8 isn’t worth it, even with cool bearings. Also I think it’s ugly and I don’t like the blade shape. I do not own this knife, I just know what I like in a knife and what I think might be useful information for someone.
