Description

Description

The Big Dog model is an eye-catching Matt Cucchiara designed flipper. Its titanium handle, like other Cucchiara-designed Kizer knives, has rounded edges that add comfort and refinement to the knife while in hand or pocket. Ceramic bearings at the pivot combined with the flipper opener launch the recurved blade with aplomb. Pocket carry is accommodated with a milled titanium clip. This Big Dog has an embellished handle with milled, blue anodized Big Dog bombs.

I am going to start by stating the obvious: this is a BIG knife, I believe it's the biggest folder in Kizer's line-up right now. With that said though it is absolutely perfect for my big hands. I carried the Vanguard 3 inch version for 6 months and I fell in love with the blade shape so I naturally had to eventually buy the full-sized version.

It came perfectly centered and is really a work of art. The bombs are a nice change from the skulls on all of the rest of Cucchiara's work. Skulls aren't really my style but the bombs are subtle and add a nice touch. The stonewash is very well done and the piece really looks good in sunlight.

I was a bit nervous about such a thick blade-stock but it has honestly surprised me and hasn't really been a problem because the grind is so well done.

If you're looking for a unique piece of functional art, I would highly recommend grabbing one of these. It isn't something that I would advise whipping out at the office but I find myself carrying it there and everywhere else I can because I love it so much even though I have 3 other of the high-quality Kizers that are equally as perfect but smaller.

Also, a note: it may be assembled in China but the steel is American and so is the design, so you're supporting local people to a certain extent. You'll be surprised at the quality if you're not sure if you should take the chance.
Good design

I was a little nervous about a 4 inch plus blade, but this knife really doesn't feel huge. Its size distributes the weight well.Don't get me wrong, this is a big knife, but it works.The blade shape is unique, and flows well with the overall design, which is unlike anything I've had. Centering and flip action are great.
Simply the Best!

If any of you guys are having second thoughts about buying this knife because its made in china, you're kidding yourselves. The first day I got this knife, the action was so smooth it would drop free! And to think this knife will get even smoother is scary! Out of the box edge was extremely sharp! I've already cut myself 3 times. Please buy the knife already. I'm not done though,this knife is so comfy in the hand and there is not a hand in the world that won't fit this knife. the Ti pocket clip is very good. In fact it is the best pocket clip I have on any of my knives. It doesn't chew up your pockets and clips on very smoothly. IMHO this is the best designed pocket knife in the industry, and trust me, I own everything from ZTs to Spydies and this is the best knife i own. The blade is perfectly centered. but the thing I like most are those engraved bombs! The anodization in them is very pretty. Holy cow I've typed a lot! Please do yourself a favor and buy this knife! Btw, BHQ is very nice to deal with.
