When your father is a legend, it’s easy to shrink into the shadows. It takes a special person to rise to the occasion and make themself stand out.
That’s exactly what Ken Onion Jr, the son of the iconic Ken Onion, is setting out to do with his first production folder for CRKT. For more of the best CRKT knives, check out our top 10 list here.
The CRKT Bamboozled is a compelling design that carries on the legacy of the Onion name perfectly.
Like any good Onion knife, Kenny’s Bamboozled somehow blends modernity with classic and budget builds with a premium feel.
The D2 blade is 3.34 inches with a drop-point profile that flips open using an assisted-opening mechanism and an IKBS ball-bearing pivot.
What helps give this knife a classic look is the handle. A stainless steel bolster adds some heft to the knife, while G-10 scales offer comfort and texture.
Its no-nonsense deep-carry pocket clip makes carrying this handsome folder a dream.
The thoughtful design of the CRKT Bamboozled proves that Kenny Onion is already comfortable in the knife community and well-versed in understanding what makes a good folder.
