From the tip of the Keen’s blade to the base of the handle runs a single clean line, creating continuity and visual balance. Absent of jimping, the knife feels smooth and satisfying in the hand. Plus, the handle measures less than a half inch thick, so it’s relatively slim for a knife of this size. In keeping with the minimal nature of the knife, the blade’s full-flat grind is simple and effective. When it comes time to sharpen, it’s easy to maintain, too. Armed with a hardened steel lockbar insert, the titanium frame lock is built for the long haul. Finally, the titanium pocket clip is rounded and smooth, just like the handle. It offers tip-up carry on the right side, but you can grab the left-handed version if you prefer.
