Great little novelty knife... That's also an amazing EDC!
Daniel V.
I love this little guy! Right off the bat, yes, it does have a very small (3 finger grip) handle. But for everyday tasks this doesn't bother me much. If you need a pry-bar then buy a Medford. The blade shape is great, and the stock is very thin and a great slicer. This knife keeps an edge far better than other VG-10 blades I have.
This review wouldn't be complete without mentioning how incredibly amazing the action is on this little guy. Cleaned all the factory oil out, and lubed it up with some KPL and MAN is it smooth. I probably put a years worth of normal wear and tear on the bearings in one night because I just couldn't stop fidgeting with it!

I have a couple other Kizer knives and am a big fan of the brand. Fit and finish is always nice, the action is always good. This is no exception. I did, however, return this knife.
I didn't keep it because the handle was just too small to fill my hand and the liner lock was just a little difficult to disengage. This knife has a lot of good things going for it and if not for the handle size I would have kept it. Maybe I will try the full size sheep dog in the future.
