RCBRKR1ODB: Olive Drab Zancudo Frame Lock Folder, Black
BRK Designed by ESEE

Zancudo is Spanish for Mosquito but besides its compacts size, we cannot think of another similarity between this knife and the buzzing pest. The Zancudo was designed by the survival experts over at ESEE Knives, Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, and was produced by Blue Ridge Knives. It's an amazingly slim, well-built folder that you won't have a problem carrying and using every day. The frame lock mechanism and FRN handle, with the solid, full-length steel liners, provide serious strength to this small folder. The pocket clip is reversible but only set up for right-hand carry and the knife weighs in at exactly three ounces. It's a folder we're very excited about here at the KnifeCenter because it gets almost everything right in a folding knife at a price point you're sure to be pleased with.

Great little knife for my EDC
This is a good knife and for the money you can't beat it. I have been waiting for an ESEE folder for a while so when this came on the market I bought it pretty quick. The pros! Crisp opening and closing. With a flick of the thumb the blade opens with ease and makes a good crisp sound. The blade comes razor sharp and has held a decent edge so far. This little knife goes in the pocket and you can forget about it, literally.... An ok grip on the handle and just a sturdy overall little knife. The con (because there is only one).... The handle though it has a decent grip feels like cheap plastic but has held up so far and that and I guess the locking mechanism could be a little easier to use.. but harden up and use your man hands and you should be fine.Still couldn't be more pleased with this purchase!

I bought this from KC after I saw a review on youtube. I actually wanted to give it 3.5 starts because it is a nice knife, worth every bit of 30 bucks, but it can be improved. I paid a little extra for the OD green and glad I did, the digital Camo looks a little cheap.First what I like, the knife has great action! easy to flip open and has a very nice liner lock. Do not get the black blade, it is a cheap paint that will come off and the stainless is a great worn look. I got the stainless and I am happy with the look and now it will last. It also is the perfect size for EDC. It also is very tight, no play and you can tell it is not the crap you get for 7 bucks at the hardware store, this knife is well made. It is substancial but yet it is light due to the hollow back. For the money it is great, but it is not a spyderco. Pay the extra money and get the Delica4, you wont regret it.Cons, the handle material is slippery, the stainless side is actually more grippy then the plastic side. The blade is not very substantial and has a more rounded edge then needed for a puncturing or thrusting move. Most of my knives are vg10, which is so good it is scary, so when I get another knife I compare it to this standard. The knife is not very sharp out of the box, if it was I probably would have given it 4 stars. I know I can sharpen it, but the 5 spyderco's I have came sharp enough to do open heart surgery on someone w/o them even knowing it, so I have come to expect this in other knife purchases and it seams to be rare. These might just get 5 stars by me if they come out with a full serrated blade. In fact, if they make one I will commit to buy one, but unless they make that I don't think I would buy another.In conclusion, it is a nice little knife and the one area it exceeds the Delica 4 is that is a little less conspicuous in the pocket, well I always get the full serrated stainless spyderco's so they are a little more heavy. A fine example of a EDC, but if you were in a knife fight with a delica 4, you would loose.
