Anatoliy Omelchenko is a prolific product designer whose work includes everything from collapsable flasks to fishing lures. But don’t think the man is nothing but novelty; as the brains behind the innovative “Clipinel” clip, Omelchenko has already proven his chops when it comes to cutting-edge knife design. With the introduction of his latest Kickstarter campaign, the designer is onto something the likes of which the industry has yet to see.

Dubbed the “Clip-Lock,” his product is essentially a rugged mid-size knife with a locking mechanism built into its clip. One part of the steel wire clip serves as the axle pen while the other locks the blade, meaning that the knife can be opened with just a pull of the mechanism and a flick of the wrist. When it comes to shape, Omelchenko opted for a classic clip point that’s made from 440A steel and measures 3.54 inches long — rugged enough for outdoor use but also small enough for everyday carry. Complemented by an oversized black G-10 handle, it weighs in at just 3.5 ounces. What results is a knife that is easy to maintain and reliable in operation because of its minimal moving parts. Back it on Kickstarter from $55.

Kickstarter: $55+
