The latest from Ken Onion, the Prowess features the wide-bellied drop-point and hourglass handle that he’s come to be known for. Measuring 3.4 inches long, the blade is made from easy-to-sharpen and wear-resistant AUS-8 steel. It’s available in satin with a plain edge or black with triple-point serrations. Though it’s made of nylon with glass fiber, the handle feels more like G-10 than anything. Jimping on the backspacer and spine make for even more control. Thanks to the flipper, the blade effortlessly opens with little pressure. It rides on the proven IKBS bearing system. For carry, the prowess gives you two options: a lanyard hole and a tip-down clip for righties.
Note: At checkout, choose between a satin-finished blade and a partially serrated black blade (+ $10).
