Light, precise and good value
I use this knife for my job in a warehouse picking orders from boxes shut with sticky tape, it has a thin and precise tip which is good for small detailed cutting work.

Slices through bubble wrap nicely.

Cuts through long pieces of cardboard with ease - i touch the blade up weekly.

The only thing that is questionable is the lack of jimping on the flipper.
I don't understand this.

Overall, so light in the pocket I can hardly feel it, the g10 is grippy, the clip is favorable to right hand flipping.

A winner of a knife. 9/10.

Flips like a champ and drops shut after taking it apart and lubing it.
Very nice
Flipper is very smooth.
In the initial state of the ball of the lock part there was a delicate catch, but it became smooth immediately with several opening and closing. I think there is no problem because it is caused by the goodness of accuracy.
Amazing knife for the money
Nathan L.
The details of his knife are amazing. Lightweight but usable, with a great blade shape and flipping action. Would recommend.
Nice overall

Got this for my girlfriend. Great fit and finish on this. It was not as sharp as I'd expect out of the box. It would cut magazine paper but get snagged and ripped more than clean cut. A few mins on the sharp-maker and it now shaves easily. The slim design and sharp point make this knife penetrate very well. This is an easy open, slim, light, and non-scary looking knife that should serve her well.

This knife flips much nicer than my Ki401C2. I can see a titanium version in my collection at some point.
Kizer splinter
