A curious tool that reveals a hidden edge.

The product of a years-long collaboration with Chen Chen and Kai Williams, the Sidewinder is an enigmatic kinetic sculpture moonlighting as a knife.

Named for the oscillating tracks left in the sand by its serpentine namesake, motion is at the core of the Sidewinder Knife’s design philosophy. Rather than a fixed handle, it has an interlocking mechanical hilt, with two opposing elements moving in sympathy with the blade itself to produce a truly unique unsheathing mechanism.

Formed entirely of stone washed and black PVD-coated stainless steel, the Sidewinder boasts a heft that feels authoritative in the hand, but never unwieldy. It’s perfectly pocketable, but remains equally content to be displayed on a desk, a shelf, or a mantle, proudly soaking in the wonder and admiration its curious form will undoubtedly attract.

Fidgeteers dream

I’ve collected a few knives over the last 60 years and now have gotten into fidgets, so the Sidewinder was a no-brainer for me. It is so much fun to play with, that I’ve dulled the blade to butter knife standard so I won’t lose any digits……it was wicked sharp. I have other knives for utility, but this one’s all fun and games. Great design, Chen & Kai. 🙌🏻

Very cool knife

If I were only in the market for a handy blade for my pocket, the options are unlimited and the price point could be as low as I’d please. However, this is Craighill…home of the most beautiful and interesting metal crafts around and the only game in town for a knife that satisfies so many cravings at once. It’s a good solid weight that feels nice in hand and doesn’t tug my pants down in pocket. It opens smoothly, locks easy and closes with trouble. It cuts well enough, too. But, oh boy, does it fascinate the eye and mind. 1000 opens and closes aren’t enough. I find myself wishing the blade lock would go away so I could just open close, open close until my hands fall off.

I find the need to remind myself not to play with it in front of my Cub Scout sons, as I don’t want to undo all of the work of teaching them that knives are tools, not toys. But this one is definitely a toy for grown-ups.

Love this knife

This knife is completely weird in the coolest way possible. So glad I purchased this knife. It’s just fun to open and close. It’s very well made. The locking mechanism works great. You can tell much thought went into designing this thing.

Thank you Craighill for make cool weird stuff. Keep it weird!!
