KUKI3480: Ki3480 Dirk Pinkerton Rogue Folding Knife
Kizer Cutlery
The KKi3480 Rogue folding knife by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Dirk Pinkerton. It is perfectly suited as a compact, lightweight urban carry knife. It features a 3.05" wharncliffe blade made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with dual thumbstuds, jimping and a reinforced tip. From opening a letter to self-defense, the Rogue can do it all. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The ergonomics are absolutely fantastic and really lock this knife into your hand extremely well. The milled fullers provide extra traction for you finger tips while reducing the weight ever so slightly. It features a lockbar overtravel prevention mechanism, replaceable steel insert, deep carry pocket clip and is a great sized folder for every task that is built with a quality anyone can appreciate.

Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but Kizer feels quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives is 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 cutlery masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.

Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
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.
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.

Wonderful design from Dirk Pinkerton
Dirk Pinkerton has done it again!The Kizer Rogue, just like most of Pinkerton's designs, has that wonderful "flow" from handle to blade. From the shape and dimension of the handle to Kizer's steel choice (S35VN for blade, titanium for handle); from the open back construction to the smooth and solid frame lock, this knife can handle damn near any tasks you throw at it.If there is 1 thing to improve is perhaps the clip ... position it a bit higher (deeper carry) and color it black (though the purplish titanium color is also nice :)
