Alliance Designs Kraken - Black Box Exclusive

Production Number:

The Alliance Designs Kraken marks their second collaboration with highly acclaimed knifemaker, Matthew Christensen. This release is a re-imagining of one of his most iconic designs, which has now been discontinued from his custom hand-built offerings.

The design of the Kraken was inspired by the traditional Japanese kwaiken. It features a modified tanto blade paired with a sleek, yet robust handle. This titanium bolster-lock variant features beautifully contoured carbon fiber scales and DarkTi pivot collars. The Elmax blade features an oversized milled titanium thumb-disc for effortless ambidextrous opening. Both the blade and handle have been treated in a PVD finish for stealth and durability.

A numbered run of only 30 pieces, all of these are lasered, tuned, and assembled at our state of the art facility in Calgary, Alberta.
