The blade has a custom smokewash finish and the upgraded VG-10 steel. The flipper opener is paired with an IKBS pivot for smooth action. Limited, serial numbered run.

A Favorite
Doug D.
Good size knife with smooth, sleek style. Flipper opens easily and quickly. A great knife to carry in front, back or suit coat inside pocket. Great, long blade with beautiful smoke color.
Love at first flip

This knife become my instant favorite straight out of the box. Very little break in time, the ikbs system is flawless and buttery smooth, the finish and machining on this blade are literally perfect. I can't find a single burr or imperfection and like another reviewer stated, it arrives hair splitting sharp. One of my favorite features the kwaiken has over many knives that use bearing systems, is the lack of blade play. The IKBS system keeps directs metal-on-metal contact so there's no sloshy plastic or brass washers. Absolutely stellar, I'll take 5 more please 🤘
Craig P.
Everything about this knife is top notch. Love the smokewash VG10 Blade with the IKBS pivot system, very smooth and elegant deployment. Hair shaving sharp out of the box. The hardware underneath the carbon fiber handles is also smokewashed, excellence in detail! No bladeplay whatsoever. Itís got some weight behind it which I like! A perfect gentlemanís flipper, that can be used as an EDC or for those special occasions, youíll love it! Get one before there gone!
nice surprise
Brandon D.
I don't normally write reviews, but felt it would help others to know that I received this knife with all black hardware, including the pocket clip. Which, in my opinion, was a nice surprise, but not the best... I quickly realized that there is gimping on the flipper tab... I thought it was only done on the mini. Nice! Perhaps all this info is known, but it was a surprise to me!
a real keeper
Lynn K.
Ordered this particular version of the knife because it looked like the best value in the sale. I wasn't wrong. This knife is gorgeous with its carbon fiber scales and blackwashed blade. The fit an finish are near perfect and other than an almost imperceptible grainy pivot feel when closing it would be. Flips very fast and smooth and the lockup is very good. Now I'm wanting to buy some of the other versions (titanium, g10, mini?).
Great Gentlemans knife
Austin C.
This knife fits perfectly into any pocket as its not very wide. The carbon fiber is indeed real and looks great without wearing easily. The blade is plenty sharp and looks great in this color option, the finish is very high quality. the build is solid, doesn't feel like it's ever going to break from anything outside of running it over with a tank.

My only two complaints are about the actual deployment, it's pretty stiff and requires a decent amount of force to open with the flip tab. The tab itself is an odd shape, its rounded in the direction you are flipping, which can lead to a partial deployment or your finger slipping off if you don't have a good grip on it.

Over all it's a great knife, much more of a fancy show piece for places you don't want to bring your auto, fixed, or beat up daily driver.

Just received this knife today. I am very impressed with the over all quality, weight, and feel of this knife. Very sharp, but not sharp enough for me. I'll fix that in a moment. For the price, this is an amazing deal! The only knife I have in my collection that I like better is my $400.00 Lion Steel TiSpine. Thank you Blade HQ for the very speedy delivery and another great knife!
