KUKI3488A1: Ki3488A1 Chris Conaway Mini c01c Folding Knife

Kizer Cutlery

The Ki3488A1 Mini c01c folding knife by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and Sheepdog Knives custom knifemaker Chris Conaway. It's a production version of his awesome custom design, manufactured with superior quality and premium features. It's an ideal sized EDC folder that gives you the beefiness of a Sheepdog Knife in a more compact and competitively priced package. The 2.64" sheepsfoot blade is made from S35VN stainless steel with a wide cleaver-style shape perfect for a variety of utility tasks. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The full titanium handle is a wonder of ergonomics, it really contours to each and every curve of the hand with milled slots for looks and weight reduction. It features a custom pivot and pivot collar, a lockbar overtravel prevention mechanism, replaceable steel insert, and is an excellent knife 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 the 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 are 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
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.

Cons: Lock Type, Pocket Clip
Smaller than you think.
Upsides: Love the blade design. Real gutsy Chopper. Good grippy handle without "hotspots". Silk smooth action. Very quick deployment. The VG1 steel is excellent & well suited for EDC. Generally a quality build.Downsides:Very small handle , not good for fellas with large hands. The locking mechanism is too recessed into handle making it difficult to close one-handed. The clip is too stiff, as such is unusable. General improvement suggestions:1. They definitely need a 5" or "6 inch blade version 2. One handed operation locking mechanism. (Optional safety)3. 2 or 3 discrete serrrations would be useful 4. Easy-to-move clip with alot more springriness 5. Jimping on back of blade to avoid thumb slip.6. Pricing is a bit much. 20% over actual value.
