Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip

Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN
S35VN
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Titanium Handles

Perfect for EDC
This is a minimalist design that fits the EDC category perfectly. The handle is nice and slim and the titanium is finished with a somewhat smooth finish. It's not slippery, but it will not grab most types of fabric so going into and coming out of your pocket is clean and easy. The titanium clip makes a nice grab on the edge of my jeans, wool dress pants, and tactical pants. The flipper works and it works great. I did use some Benchmade BlueLube on the pivot to get it a hair smoother, but I'm not sure if the awesome drag came from break-in or the lube. In any case, it will flip open without any stalling in the rotation. The lock-up is about 30% of the bar and it's rock solid with a nice click. There is no play in the blade. Kizer does use a small (ceramic?) contact point on the lock bar for the closed position detent and that is smooth and sufficient to prevent self-opening. The stonewash finish on the blade is uniform and well executed. I'd give the sharpness out of the box a 7 out of 10, so some operators may want to sharpen it a little but otherwise this thing is a perfect size, weight, and function for an EDC. And at this price, it's an easy buy decision.

Kizer Cutlery
These two Kizer Cutlery knives were my first intro to Kizer products. I've been collecting knives for a number of years from all variety of producers and was impressed with Kizer. In fact I liked the two I bought so much that I bought a third right after. I'll continue to review Kizer products and have no doubt I'll buy more. I've also been pleased with KnifeCenter and also will be a returning customer, no doubt about it.
