Ken Onion's Shenanigan PPS uses AUS 8 blade steel in a bead-blast finish, plus an almost indestructible frame of tough, glass filled nylon. The combination of the open-build frame, blade flipper, and Teflon and bronze bushings at the pivot allow for fast one-handed opening in an exceptional knife. The 3.25" modified drop point has a slight recurve and a swedged top edge. The stainless steel liner lock is a strip lock, inset into one handle to save weight. This makes for a knife that is exceptionally strong, lightweight and comfortable. This is a rugged, value-priced knife that can be used daily on the job. It is one that will take the worst abuse from impacts, abrasion, and solvents and still look good. The combination of contoured handle, index finger notch and checkered grip pattern make the Shenanigan models very friendly to the hands. It comes with a thoughtfully designed custom stainless steel pocket/gear clip with a black corrosion-resistant coating.
