Kizer Sheepdog C01C Mini
Al W.
With regards to this review, I've had a prototype for around 4 months. In this time, I carried this knife as well as the XL-C01C prototype. Both of them are going to be incredible for whatever tasks you may put them through. Considering the mini is the first, I should say that this is going to be the hot seller of the two. Phenomenal action, liner lock, cutting power and comfortable in the hands. With the VG-10 blade, it will handle most things you'll encounter on a daily basis. I believe Kizer Cutlery has another great item available for their product offering, and I can personally suggest this knife to anyone. I personally will be placing an order for between 5-10 just so I can give them out as gifts; these knives are well worth every dollar.
