Ken Onion’s Foresight™ is typical Onion throughout, a slight recurve, full belly and a modified drop point make this all purpose design ideal for EDC. The blade is 3.5 inches in length and .16 inches in thickness translating to an HRC of 58-59; certainly tough enough for just about anything you would reasonably ask of a folding knife. The Foresight™ is a locking liner design with an aluminum handle that is nicely scalloped for a great gripping surface. The axis mechanism is extremely smooth making one-handed operation safe and easy. The Foresight™ is available in plain and serrated edges at an M.S.R.P of $140.
If you like classical Japanese martial cutlery you’ll love the newest John Williams creation, Otanashi noh Ken. This knife is a defensive tool that improves on John’s earlier Hissatsu™ folder. You can read my review of it here. Where the Hissatsu™ employed an assisted opening mechanism that several reviewers felt was too heavy and hard to operate the Otanashi uses CRKT’s patented frame lock LAWKS. The blade was lengthened to 4.52 inches. The handle was also improved on with the move to a black G10. The Otanashi noh Ken is a pure defensive blade who’s origins date back to 16th Century Japan. This is a classical Osoraku style blade with all of the inherent properties of that genre – enormous penetrating and slashing abilities. The Otanashi noh Ken will be available later this year at an M.S.R.P of $150.
