Description
KUKI401X1: Ki401X1 V3 Folding Knife, Blue Rainbow Titanium
Kizer Cutlery
 
"Veni, Vidi, Vici" - those immortal words of Julius Caesar were the inspiration for the V3 model line. It was the model that established Kizer as a force to be reckoned with in today's knife market. The Kizer V3 flipper is a perfect everyday carry (EDC). The handles are made from blue rainbow anodized 6Al4V titanium with an Anso-like milling pattern that not only looks great but provides some additional traction for your fingers. The slender design of the knife allows it to easily fit in your pocket and the ergonomics are absolutely fantastic. The blade is crafted from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a stonewashed finish for a rugged and worn in look. S35VN is a high-grade steel with exceptional edge retention and wear resistance. The flipper features a frame lock, two thumb studs for one-handed opening, titanium pocket clip, lanyard hole, a flipper tab with mild jimping, and moderate jimping on the spine.

Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but feel quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives are precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action, and sharpness of each knife is achieved entirely by hand, employing the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of cutler masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long-term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Wonderful surprise
This was my first Kizer knife and it was a wonderful surprise. It is a great knife especially for the lesser price. Beautiful coloring on the handle. Opening and closing is totally smooth. The blade is centered when closed. Ergonomics are great with no hot spots. I hope my next Kizer knife is as good as this one. And finally, the packaging was first rate. It came in a nice box that has a sleave. But better was that it came with an extra screw and a cloth with the Kizer logo on it like a Chris Reeve Knife. This was a great purchase.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
killing the competition
It really all comes down to value in the end. This is a lot of knife for a third of the price. If you feel better about spending a lot more for a fraction of improvement, by all means spend your cash. Great knife and value. Backed by a two year warranty.
