Good knife, somewhat disappointing...

First off, there's a lot of conflicting information about this knife floating around the 'net (including on this very site).

Let me state for the record that this knife does NOT have a bearing pivot as advertised here and elsewhere. It runs on three stacked washers on each side of the blade: a phosphor bronze/teflon/phosphor bronze sandwich on each side, if you will.

Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with that, if that's what you know you're getting when you order. Pivot type is a very definite selling point on a knife, and preferences are strong for many reasons.

So what we end up with here is basically a modified Begleiter, which was also a very good knife. Without the advertised pivot, this knife has one real, quantifiable improvement over the Begleiter; namely, the Domin lacks the coated/painted blade, which to many, caused the earlier model to be less than ideal. It's a definite improvement in that regard.

Final verdict is that if what you're looking for is a modified Begleiter without a coated blade, then you'll be happy with the Domin. If, however, you're excited by the product description here and elsewhere, temper that excitement, because you're not getting a knife with a bearing pivot.

Good value, nice fit/finish. Action is pretty good, especially after disassembly/cleaning/lubricating. Given that Kizer's official site doesn't even show the Domin as an available model, it's impossible to confirm whether or not Kizer is responsible for the misinformation, so caveat emptor. Good knife, but could've been so much more...and I expected so much more from the widely-available stats.
Smash hit!!

For a knife that costs 52 dollars this is damn near perfect. I also own the Kizer Begleiter which was also top-notch in every way and was the motivating factor to pick up the Domin. Fit and finish are near flawless, buttery smooth action, perfect size and weight, excellent blade shape thatís actually useful, left-hand friendly reversible pocket clip.... I could go on and on. Just do yourself a favor and pick one up.
