KEN VEHIKITE ~ BLACK ROC KNIVES
I am very excited to feature this Maker. I discovered Ken on Instagram where he has a HUGE following and was really impressed with the distinctive look of his work. Ken lives in Indiana and started making knives in 2013 – he does not use any CNC or Computer Equipment and creates his knives One at a Time, all within his own Shop. Ken’s Knives usually sell out on IG in Minutes!

After receiving this knife, I knew immediately why Black Roc Sells Out of each Model so quickly!
This is one of Ken’s most popular Models, the Grunt ~ an Aggressive Tactical / Kerambit Style Back up Blade for those who may find themselves in Harm’s Way.
- 3/16” thick 80CRV2 High Carbon Steel
- Professional Heat Treat / Cryogenic Quench
- Non-Glare Acid & Stone Washed Finish
- Custom Flint Knapped Texture on Flats & Spine
- Thick Full Tang
- Kerambit Style Handle / Fills the Palm
- Deep Integral Finger Guard
- Custom Molded Matching Kydex Sheath
This knife was Hand Crafted with Thick Tan G-10 handle scales that have a Three Dimensional Carving and Perimeter Traction Grooves to channel Dirt and Moisture away from the middle of the handle. This will provide a sure grip even under other than ideal conditions.
The Mid Height Flat Ground Blade has an Aggressive Distal Taper for a blade that will provide amazing Penetration as well as being capable of handling Tough Cutting Chores with ease.
80CRV2 is known for having the Extreme Toughness of High Carbon Steels, yet it also has the Perk of High Stain Resistance. The blade has Ken’s Abstract Acid & Stonewashed Finish and the Flats and Spine have a Unique Hand Applied Flint Napped texture. The Integrated Thumb Ramp with Ridges in the spine assists for a more Secure Grip.
Though the Hand fits comfortably within the Curves of the Custom Designed Handle, this model also has a Keramibt Style Hole for Fast Indexing and the Butt of the Handle has Flattened Edges for Thumb Placement if the knife is held in the Reverse Position.
A Comfortable, Full Grip Handle held together with torx Screws. This knife would make an Excellent Back up Tactical influenced EDC!
The Matching Custom Camo Kydex Sheath has an Adjustable Snap Loop System already attached.
A very special and powerful Fixed Blade.
We are going to see INCREDIBLE things from this new Maker and I am glad to be in on the ground floor of his career.
