Goes against the norm of folding knives. This Terry Lee Renner-designed futuristic looking everyday carry knife defies convention. The titanium nitride finished two-tone handle is uniquely angular yet surprisingly comfortable to hold. Meanwhile an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system makes it easy to deploy the tanto tip blade anywhere. Mars, for instance. Knifemaker Terry Lee Renner of Palmetto, Florida, has always been intrigued by sharp lines. He took a lot of inspiration from his deep-relief wood carving, and incorporated it into the design of the Deviation™. Renner wanted to create a knife that would inspire the same intrigue he feels for those sharp powerful lines, in every person that touches the handle, and he did just that with this one of a kind knife. With looks that seem more at home on a UFO than a belt loop, this is one that will open eyes and make jaws drop when they see this unique knife for the very first time. The IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system deploys the blade smoothly and quickly. And once open, a two–toned tanto blade with mirror polish on the grind signals to any, and all, life forms that you’re ready to get to work. When you want a stylish knife that’s still beefy enough to use anywhere, reach for the Deviation™.
