Bladesmith, instructor, and former Forged in Fire judge Jason Knight is bringing out a KnivesShipFree-exclusive version of the Knight Elements V2 Kukri folder. Compared to the 2017 original, V2 comes with a refined pocket clip setup and a key tweak to the ergonomics for a different overall hand feel.
The first version of the Kukri folder stepped onto the world stage at Blade Show 2017. It was a collaboration between Knight, fellow Forged in Fire judge Doug Marcaida, and Fox Knives. Back then it was called the MK Ultra Kukri, but the bones of the imposingly spec’d folder were established: the 4-inch blade, commensurately scaled handle, ball bearing flipper action, and beefy titanium frame lock. The series caught our attention, but also that of the judges at Blade ’17, taking home the Best New Collaboration award.
KnifeNews does such a great job sharing the breadth of new releases from around the industry that it is easy to forget that KnifeNews is actually the house-blog for KnivesShipFree. In fact, KSF had just closed the deal acquiring KnifeNews when founder Derrick Bohn tragically passed away, and KnifeNews founder Alex Antoniou actually offered to void the deal. The decision was made to go ahead with Derrick’s vision, and they have done this vision justice.View Linked Article
