The Whole Package
Received this on June 26, 2014. Awesome flipper with a nice compliment of key components. The fit and finish is near perfect and the action and lock-up is smooth and tuned nicely by the makers at the factory. This was my first Kizer purchase.You should note there are two main differences from the photos:1) The clip now has two mount locations: one for tip up and one for tip down. It came with the (new) location for tip up. That leaves the milled slot with threaded hole empty where the original clip mount was located.2) The blade is not stonewash finish, but rather a mirror polish. I read S35VN was hard to polish so Kizer must have developed a technique. While that's okay, I would have preferred the stonewash. However, the mirror finish compliments the high points on the scales, which are also buffed to a polish.Overall a great knife for the price point compared to competitors. I will definitely be buying more Kizer models and will get them here from knifecenter.com.
