KUKI3499: Ki3499 Justin Lundquist Feist Folding Knife
Kizer Cutlery

An accidental loss of a daily companion knife and inspirations from Bob Terzuola led Justin Lundquist to craft his first custom creation. Driven by a lifelong passion for fine art and traditional craftsmanship, Justin drew on his experiences in camping and hunting, adding clean flowing lines to fill the hands with a sleek blade that tackles any task with ease.

The Feist is an embodiment of the fact that size does not equate to capability. This compact folding knife is similar to a traditional slipjoint but is upgraded with a flowing, modern outline and CPM-S35VN premium stainless steel. This front flipper is full of energy and definitely stands out from the crowd, a "feisty" knife indeed!

Cons: Overall Quality
Some production problems
I had a few problems with my Feist. 1. Pivot screw was completely loose. 2. Stop pin was loose in the blade and rattled around. I fixed those with some Loctite. 3. After enjoying the flipping action for a week or so I noticed some lock rock. I can see some major wear on the lockbar insert so that the lockbar ran out of pre-load before the blade fully locked up. I was able to fix that by bending the lockbar a little to slightly increase the tension, but I think there is something wrong with the heat treat on the insert. I may be looking for a replacement insert in the future. It is my understanding the Justin is aware of production issues and is working with Kizer to get them fixed. Other than these manufacturing issues, I do love it. The action is satisfying. It is a great design, very compact yet capable. This knife easily falls into the gentleman's knife category.

Great Knife
I love this knife. Mine if a tiny bit gritty but it comes ang goes. Not really a concern of mine as it's dead center and sharp. Action is great. It is alot smaller than you think it will be. My first front flipper. Simple and ultra clean looking, clip is just fine also. Great knife.!!

The ultimate gentleman's EDC
When I purchased the Feist I was concerned because I had read some negative reviews, but let me tell you this knife is beautiful, very functional and well made. I own a few Kizer knives and I have been impressed by their workmanship and general fit. The knife is a perfect EDC for an executive or someone that doesn't want to carry a large or threatening knife around with him at work. This knife is subtle, but is also up to handling tough tasks.
