The Kingpin S
The Kingpin blade was designed from the ground up to be the perfect urban defensive blade for an everyday companion. In the realm of today’s urban environment large combat knives do not survive the test of time. Whether you are a truck driver, a hairdresser or manager, you want to carry something you can hide and you can use effectively for everyday tasks or for more serious business should the need arise. The Kingpin with its 8-inch overall length and 4-inch blade is perfectly sized to carry concealed. The wide drop point blade with its top swedge provides good penetration, excellent cutting ability and perfect everyday use practicality. The blade is slightly canted to enhance human biomechanics when cutting or thrusting, yet it’s still not hindering utility use. The top jimping provides ample support for the thumb in forward grip. The handle is unidirectional and comfortable in both forward and reverse grip, and acceptable even with edge in techniques. The end of the handle provides an aggressive grip point to facilitate retention and fast deployment of the knife from the kydex sheath, as well as provides a thumb rest with jimping when the knife is held in reverse grip. The handle is made from G-10 with random pattern to further enhance grip even when your hands are wet. No matter what is the task at hand this blade will handle it, because it is the KINGPIN.
The Kingpin S model is the smaller sibling of the original Kingpin. The blade is slightly shorter, but the same width and handle to preserve comfort and geometry of the original design. If you want something that conceals better, lighter, or just below the legal blade length in some places, the Kingpin S will have you covered.

In this model the blade is slightly canted in order to facilitate more neutral and effective thrusting and slashing.
