Pretty good with except for one thing.
Darren R.
Overall this is a very solid knife made of great materials with outstanding fit and finish especially for the price (something Kizer seems to do very well). The handle shape is also quite comfortable with the sculpted edges providing a nice look.

It does however have one major flaw in that when using the flipper in a normal manner to open the knife (which does have a detente on the stiff side), your finger will automatically make forceful contact with the aggressive jimping on the spine that is rather uncomfortable. While I have discovered I can avoid this by using my fingernail to engage the flipper, this is still a disappointing design flaw on an otherwise good knife.
A good blade made great by geometry

I purchased this knife on something of a whim during my 5th, and most recent Kizer sale run. I'd come to the shop for something else, but another customer was looking at this knife, and when I learned it was only $89, I had to buy it, despite using $ allocated for food to do it. Oh well, the kids can live just fine on squirrel meat and nettle broth for a cpl weeks.

What makes this knife worth twice the price is the shape of the blade, ie, its geometry. I dont understand the tech details well enough to explain, but the shape and balance let this thing cut AMAZINGLY well. Beat out my similar ZT by a long shot, and the ST was sharper. This Kizer is now in my EDC rotation. One complaint: detente is too tight--i've had to break it in quite a bit to get a easy flip.
