Serve. Protect. The Provoke knife draws on ancient karambit design but its hiding a futuristic secret. The first knife ever to feature Kinematic technology, it stays neatly tucked away in transit and comes to life when theres trouble afoot.

Around here, we think of Designer Joe Caswell as somewhat of a mad scientist. When we got an eyeful of the sketches that were to become the Provokedesigned in Newbury Park, Californiawe knew he was destined to become one of the most innovative designers the knife world has ever seen. Modeled after a traditional karambit, the black oxide-finished hawkbill-style blade is forged of a premium D2 steel for high durability and excellent edge retention.

The opening mechanism is pulling the folder into the future whether its ready or not. Thumb pressure on the upper crossbar sets the chain reaction in motion, causing the blade to lunge to action while youve got a firm grasp on the handle. Its crafted of aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum for supreme toughness. In true Joe fashion, the pocket clip is also a worlds firstsitting almost completely flush with the handle and likewise activated with light thumb pressure.

The Provoke comes up strong when its called in for duty.

How Kinematic Works
Nudge the upper crossbar with your thumbwhile the rest of your fingers firmly grasp the handleand the blade lunges to life and locks into place. Shift the discrete lever at the base of the finger loop and the blade retreats into its closed position.
