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.

Would fully recommend this knife to anyone...great materials and screams quality. Flipper is not as smooth as it could be out of box...maybe the coating they used. Have only had it for a couple weeks so hoping it smooths out. Otherwise love it and would buy again

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.
