The Kizer Genie, designed by Gage, is a sturdy front flipper knife. The word Genie is German, and means "Genius". Fortunately, it doesn't take a genius to see that this knife is made to work! With a carbon fiber handle, a stonewashed CPM-S35VN steel blade, and solid lock-up, you'll be cutting reliably as long as you need.
The weight and feel of this knife is top notch. Disappears in the pocket and has the perfect blade geometry for my needs. I have larger than average hands and can get a full grip if I choke up on the blade or not. I'm a sucker for a front flipper and this knife delivers! Out of the box action, one of the best front flippers I have experienced. For fidget factor you can also thumb flick, middle finger flick and reach around with index finger. The blade was also crazy sharp out of the box. I haven't had a need to touch up the edge yet. You can't go wrong with this knife!!!
This knife is a real bargain. Great steel, carbon fiber, and oh! the sweetest action. Perfect fit and finish. If it seems like "a lot of money for a Kizer," let me assure you that it's a LOT of Kizer for the money!
