WHEN DOWN-N-DIRTY IS NOT A GOOD THING
Knives, folders especially, can collect a lot of nasty “stuff” through their daily use. These materials can include pocket lint, greasy liquids, dirt, sand, tree sap, and dozens of other materials out in the natural and manmade world. Because of these substances, your knife’s performance can dwindle greatly to the point of not functioning when you need it in the field. The opening and closing function can stick, the various locks and releases can become inoperative, and the blade itself can be damaged in some circumstances. Knives that can be disassembled, more often than not, require some basic tools to break the knife down into cleanable components. Trouble arises when those tools aren’t with you and gunk and goo overcome your knife’s ability to function—unless you have the Bona Fide with you. The Field Strip Gen II on the Bona Fide offers a tool-free, one-button takedown of the knife and just-as-fast reassembly. This specialized feature, designed by Ken Onion, makes cleaning the knife in the field an efficient process that allows you to get back to business hunting, fishing, camping, or any other outdoor activity.
