Eschewing the superfluous and eliminating the unnecessary, the fully murdered out Koenig Arius in a distressed DLC finish is a quietly formidable everyday blade that's built to perform and overcome.
At its core, the Koenig Arius is built as a heavy-duty everyday carry blade. It’s designed to be tough enough for every possible scenario, yet still nimble and comfortable enough for extended use.
This is achieved via the titanium frame lock, along with the carefully contoured titanium handles and a CTS-XHP steel blade. The choice of the CTS-XHP super steel ensures incredible cutting performance and edge retention, while the titanium construction allows for enhanced strength while keeping the weight to a minimum.
And it's in the details that make the knife, such as the perfectly designed thumb ramp, beautifully ground swedge on the blade, the milled backspacer with an integrated lanyard slot, and the precisely tensioned titanium pocket clip.
To ensure the highest level of quality, everything is built in-house by Bill Koenig himself, whose lifelong dream was to have his own shop. Bill left home at 19 to work in the oil fields of North Dakota to save up and fulfill this dream. What you see today is not only a lifetime’s labor of love but also the classic American dream coming true.
