It is part of a series of military knives specifically designed with characteristics very similar to those included in the American army. Completely designed by Ken Onion, the famous inventor, however, the opening mechanism called “Speedsafe” or the Kershaw assisted opening and mounted on several models of its knives.
The Story of Onion in fact begins in 1989 when the need to satisfy his wife of having an expert staff of knives, shaking amicia with Stanley Fujisaka. From him he learned the art of knives and cutlery until it puts in place the building in 1991, his first knife.
Five years later he finds himself discussing an important agreement with Doug Flagg regarding assisted opening mechanism he devised. From this was born the future cooperation contract with Onion Kershaw, who will lead the global demand for these new knives to amazing levels. Onion still holds the paternity of 36 patents between locks, mechanisms of openings and design of knives, most of these used just by Kershaw.
He collaborated later with other American companies such as Columbia River Knife and others. For these patents in 2008 was inducted into the Blade Magazine magazine among the best designers in the world and in 45th place in the ranking of the younger members.
