Columbia River Ripples are New & Improved

Columbia River (CRKT) has upgraded and improved their incredibly popular Ripple series of folders designed by renowned knifemaker Ken Onion.  The handles are upgraded from aluminum to stainless steel and they are smoother than ever!  A tough Titanium Nitride coating in your color choice of bronze or gun-metal gray adds style and protection. The blade steel has also been upgraded to the Acuto 440 which is harder and provides better edge-holding ability.  As before, the blade effortlessly pops open on super smooth IKBS ball bearings. Overall, in our opinion, the new Ripples are greatly improved.  View the entire Ripple Series.

The Ripple™ folding pocket knife has become the anchor of the popular "gentleman's tactical" knife series from Ken Onion and CRKT.

These 2013 stainless steel handle versions ride low in the pocket and are designed to be used as an everyday carry pocket knife. With their distinct look these knives will compliment the refined taste of the distinguished gentleman. They slide in and out of a suit pocket easily and are also comfortable at home in your jeans.

Stylish curves and smooth flowing lines help to create the Ripple™ effect that defines the look of the handle. These distinctive frame locks feature an ambidextrous blade flipper for easy opening. The flipper style opener moves the blade with ease thanks to the smooth IKBS™ pivot system. The IKBS™ innovation is arguably the strongest, smoothest pivot system on the market.

The Ripple™ modified drop point blade with its high hollow grind affords the user a razor sharp edge with plenty of utility to cut across a wide variety of everyday tasks.
