Columbia River Knife & Tool offers yet another great Ken Onion designed folder, which is sure to appeal to many a knife user—and with good reason. This knife design was also awarded the 2012 Blade Show, Import Knife of the Year by fellow industry peers.
The new CRKT Foresight draws on the tried and true formula of “form follows function”. Its formidable profile looks like a chiseled physique just waiting to pounce on your next cutting task with all of the control and efficiencies you would expect in a high-quality, cutting tool. 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 no matter the use at hand.
Ken designed the 3.5-inch modified drop-point blade with a generous belly and re-curve cutting edge to maximize tool utility. And, the IKBS ball bearing pivot system coupled with Interframe style mechanism, make opening and closing the blade as smooth as silk. Precision ground of AUS 8 stainless steel and coated with Black Ti Nitride finish, the edge is plenty sharp.
Bottom line, some say hindsight is 20/20, but perhaps a smarter way to think is that having the Foresight™ shows you plan ahead when it comes to having the right tools.
