The Provoke draws on an ancient karambit design but it’s also futuristic. It is the first knife to feature Kinematic technology. How does Kinematic work, you ask? Nudge the upper crossbar with your thumb — while the rest of your fingers firmly grasp the handle — and the blade lunges and locks into place. Shift the lever at the base of the finger loop and the blade retreats into its closed position. The Provoke has an open length of 7.25″ and weighs 6.1 oz. Its 2.41″ hawkbill-style blade is premium D2 steel with a black titanium nitride finish. The handle is 6061 T6 aluminum. MSRP: $199.99. For more info: (800) 891-3100,
