Value for your dollar
ewan s.
I have read good things about Kizer but now I know. I would compare this knife against any other knife costing 3 times as much. For 88 dollars... well built, silky smooth action- and I really mean that. Flips like an auto. Very sharp. Medium size and weight. Nice hand feel. Friendly to the grip. Props to Matt C. and Kizer. Buy this knife now.
Great knife for the money
Kurt S.
Fit and finish is great. Mechanics are spot-on. Zero blade play. Very impressed. Flips like a mid-tech (or custom for that matter). Ergos are superb.
