Ken Onion, Legendary Knife Maker and Designer – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 188
Legendary knife maker Ken Onion joins Bob “The Knife Junkie” on episode #188 of The Knife Junkie Podcast. Onion learned his basic knife-making skills from Stanley Fujisaka, and built his first knife in 1991.
Onion has designed knives for Kershaw, Columbia River Knife and Tool, Spyderco, and most recently a knife sharpener with Work Sharp. He holds 36 design patents on different items including locks, mechanisms, and knife designs. Most notable of these is the Speed-safe mechanism used by Kershaw Knives.
Onion was inducted into the Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fame at the 2008 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia as the 45th and youngest living member.
