So I was interested in Ken Onion the other day and started doing some looking into his career and found a lot of cool stuff.
I always assumed that he either owned a stake in KAI, or that he was one of the Top guys working there, but I guess he only had a contract with them on several of his designs.
I didn't know he did a collab with Spyderco in 2005 (the SpyKer) or that he had parted ways with KAI. I had seen several of his designs at CRKT and always wondered what made him start doing collabs with CRKT.
Did he start a production knife company? According to his Wikipedia article, he did, but I'm not aware of any of his mid-techs or production knives, only his customs.
He's also working on starting "the Onion Fund" which seems like a cool non-profit organization to help new knife-makers.
Anyone know of his production knife company or have any experience with any of his production knives? Or why he parted ways with KAI?
