Description

This Feist model is equipped with a reverse tanto style blade and features a hole cutout pattern on the handle.

Knifemaker Justin Lundquist designed the Feist after losing his favorite EDC knife. With a lifelong passion for fine art and traditional craftsmanship, Justin applied his extensive camping and hunting experience to create this clean, lightweight EDC folder. The refined look and smooth flowing lines set the Feist apart from other EDC knives. It has a CPM-S35VN steel blade with a front flipper opener. The handle is made from 6AL4V titanium with a matte gray finish. Add a highly functional piece of knife art to your collection with the Kizer Feist.

Features:
  • CPM-S35VN blade steel provides a tough blade with excellent edge retention.
  • Rounded titanium handles for a smooth gripping surface that is comfortable in the pocket or hand.
  • A sleek front flipper and ball bearing pivot offers quick blade deployment while adding to the clean aesthetic appeal.

As I mentioned in a different review I usually prefer micarta scales to titanium but in this case the titanium wins. Beautifully finished with no sharp edges. Even the milled holes in the scale are chamfered.

In what is probably just good luck my titanium Feist has a much smoother one-handed deployment than my micarta Feist. I also think the Tanto blade is very nice although I think their drop-point blade is just as nice..

I know some people think the holes are hideous but I really like the look and even my wife said it was a cool looking knife (she usually has no opinion either way).

The weight and balance both feel great to me and since I purchased this one I've had a hard time carrying anything else.
Almost perfect Gentleman's knife

I purchased this knife as a practical EDC carry into the office. I wanted something elegant and un-intimidating.

On these counts it works great. The reverse tanto blade is an elegant, distinctive alternative to the Sheepsfoot or Wharncliffe blade. My blade came sharp, maybe not razor sharp, but acceptably sharp.

The front flipper does take getting used to, but it adds to the distinctiveness of the knife.

This is the first framelock knife I've had and closing the blade is hard enough that I don't enjoy opening and closing the knife repeatedly. This is probably good, since it keeps me from playing with it at work.

My only complaint is the weight. I was hoping for a slightly lighter knife that could be worn in the shirt pocket, without causing the shirt to hang funny. Even with the drilled holes and titanium it is too heavy.

It isn't replacing my Chaparral Lightweight as an every day pocket knife, but it is there for when I want something fancier or a change.

Update:
Two months later and the knife is much easier to open. The action is smoother and after my most recent oiling, I can open it with a flick of the wrist, not even using the front flipper.

The blade is still amazingly sharp and the thin blade profile makes it a great knife for slicing.
Chinese perfection

I have always been very skeptical about buying chinese knives. After hearing a lot about Kizer and how their products are actually great I decided to buy one of their Vanguard series knives. After buying, using and abusing that knife I finally felt comfortable trying out once of their actually well reviewed knives.

The Feist II is unique, has a snappy action and looks great in hand and pocket. it's super lightweight and holds a razor edge. After this knife I'm converted to Kizer and their products. This knife is just awesome.

Love the look over the orginal feist. The construction is nice and the materials are great. The reverse tanto looks nice and is very useful for cutting.
Great all around knife!

I received this knife and the whole package was amazing! The fit and finish of the knife is second to none for this price range. The edge was razor sharp. The full titanium construction is a piece of art and the blade shape is one of my favorites of all time. Definitely recommend picking this one up!
Amazing Knife

I own all 3 versions of this knife. Love the front-flipping action and the fit and finish are top notch for the price point. My only issue is that the edge was dull out of the box.

I purchased two, and tested both, and neither could shave hair or cut paper. I plan to send one off to get sharpened, but at this price I would expect a sharper knife from Kizer out of the box. Otherwise great service from Bladehq, as always.
