Description

Based on the custom Lancer collaboration from Ray Laconico and Michael Vagnino, the Kizer Lancer 2 is a stunning design for managing any daily cutting chore. The milled titanium handle comes in a blue anodized finish with gold anodized holes on the front side. It has a recurve blade made from dependable S35VN steel with a stonewashed finish. The blade flipper provides rocketing blade deployment with a reinforced frame lock for strong blade lock up. A comfortably contoured titanium pocket clip completes the outstanding design.

Features:
  • CPM-S35VN blade provides excellent edge retention and wear resistance.
  • Ergonomic handle and pocket clip design offers lasting comfort during use.
  • Titanium frame lock with a steel reinforced insert for strong, reliable blade lock up.

Out-of-the-box, this knife was not usable. The amount of force needed to deploy the blade was way too high.

I simply could not use the flipper. It was difficult, but not impossible, to pinch the blade and open the knife.

Also, I noticed a slight discoloration on the frame-lock side. This discoloration was about midpoint with respect to the clip.

Perhaps I should have returned the knife, but I didn't. I played with pivot friction to no avail.

In the past, I have been able to disassemble, clean, and reassemble knives to make them much more usable. After doing that here, there was no improvement in opening.

Then I noticed that the open end of the pocket clip was resting on the frame and the frame-lock bar. This put pressure on the bar, which put pressure on the blade, which caused the opening problem. To reduce this pressure, I ground down the under side of the clip, where the clip pressed on the frame lock. After reducing clip thickness by about 1/16", the blade began to open as expected.

I really like the feel, size, and style of this knife. Was it worth the effort? Time will tell.
Very impressed.

I've had it for just over a day, so I'm still in the honeymoon phase. Very impressed. It came perfectly dialed in. Much nicer than knives twice the price. I'm not a fan of recurve blades, but I am so happy I gave this one a shot.
