Better than the G-10s. Looks Refined, but isn't.

Don't get me wrong, I like this knife, but the detent is incredibly tough, and the action could be smoother. It's deceiving because the cleaver sheep's foot blade is heavy enough that it's weight carries the inertia.
Kizer got wise and finally carved out a bit of handle so your finger can get to the liner lock which is great. I think some more dev could have gone into creating a smoother detent so the lock and unlocking of the blade could feel better in the hand.
I do find myself warming up to the blade over time. Also, a little MiracleGrow on the scales and I've worked up a lovely patina on that nice copper.
Flippiest flipper I own. Fantastic.

Iíve owned this little friend for almost an entire day. I know. Lengthy. But after a couple drops of oil and an evening of excessive opening and closing, this has become my fidget spinner of choice. My EDC is usually a Spyderco Paramilitary 2, but this little gem will definitely be in rotation.

My hands are large, and holding the G10 version of this knife felt unbalanced and like a plaything. This copper version, however, has the perfect amount of heft. And by heft, I mean heft. Itís surprisingly solid. With the copper scales, the balance point, instead of being somewhere on the blade itself, is actually about 3/4 inch behind the pivot point. However, because itís fairly short, it doesnít ďhang heavyĒ in my pocket. I tend to put my (large) cell phone in the same pocket, and this knife is short enough to get out of the way and just chill out near the outside seam of my pant leg.

A short knife is usually a problem for me. To give you some idea, the PM2 and the Boker Mermaid both fit my hand perfectly. This, to me, is a three-finger knife. Because of its solid feel, though, it is comfortable to use, and I donít worry that it will bobble out of my hands.

Now, about that pivot. The somewhat heavy blade, turning on bearings, and with the pivot perfectly placed, makes this knife deploy effortlessly. Smooth and quick, with an immediate and satisfying snap. No blade play, no binding. Release the perfectly aligned and non-sticky liner lock and give it a nudge, and the blade simply drops back into place.

And the steel. Oh, the steel. S35VN is my favorite, and this blade came fairly sharp from the factory. I had no choice but to test it on some rebellious cardboard in the garage. The cardboard rebellion was quelled quickly and effortlessly. Cuts like a charm.

Beautiful scales, no sharp edges, beautiful clip, perfectly centered blade, nice sharpening choil, metal spacers, open designówhatís not to like? Nothiní. Just buy it already.
