When do you recognize greatness, opportunity or danger? At what point do you see the shift that can make or break a situation? Are you walking into situations with awareness? Precognition and imagining multiple outcomes can vastly improve your chances of success in any scenario. 

KOGNITO is that talisman, that physical reminder to always stay sharp and aware, to keep your cool, stay collected and at the ready. This EDC blade is small enough to easily fit in your pocket, briefcase or go bag but big enough to handle your everyday needs.

With a 3” blade, KOGNITO is the perfect cutting length while being extremely comfortable in the hand. The arched frame sits ergonomically against the palm of your hand, while the proprietary Louis Krudo Thumb Wedge makes for a super comfortable grip.

With a flash of copper as KOGNITO’s spacer, you’ll be delighted with, not only the feel of this knife in your hand, but the look of the sculpted, blacked-out handle. The copper and black together dress this knife exquisitely.

Like the athlete who imagines successful outcomes as part of his rigorous training, you can do the same thing in any arena of your life. It is scientifically proven that the person who uses the power of their mind, will and emotions to generate the vision of success is far more likely to actualize that success. Knowing you’ve got what it takes when the chips are down could be the factor that gets you out of a sticky situation. KOGNITO calls you to recognize your own abilities, your own strengths, your inner greatness and your own courage. 

Louis Krudo marches to the beat of his own drum. Those that are attracted to his designs are much the same. They are strong individuals who do things their own way, even when it’s hard. They are full of grit, determination and can-do attitude. KOGNITO is the result of that ability to see a way when the going gets tough. 2020 has been a tough year, but we carry on and do what is necessary, do what is right and what is honorable. 

Make KOGNITO part of your EDC line-up and remind yourself who the hell you are and keep kicking ass!
