RCBRKR1DT: Desert Tan Zancudo Frame Lock Folder
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.

Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Excellent knife
Pretty lighweight knife, the blade is thin so it is a very good slicer. AUS8 retains the edge well. The handle feel is very good. The only flaw is the the locking system. The liner is impossible to disengage with the thumb, I have to use the nail. Overall, I love this knife though.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: None
I was skeptical about this knife prior to purchase, but it has truly impressed me. I've carried and used it every day since I got it. Proving to be a rock solid folder. Easy open and close. Blade centering is perfect. Edge grind came perfect. Lock up is bank vault tight. The stone wash finish is nice, doesn't show smudges and stains. Thin and light for as solid as it is. Rides well in the pocket. Easy to sharpen. The edges of the scales were a little crisp so I smoothed them with sand paper. There isn't a ton of room for the lock to wear before the detent ball hit's the liner on the other side, but the surfaces are mated so nicely it will probably take many years if ever for that to happen. If it does, the adjustment will be easy. Very happy with this knife. All my other folders have been and will continue to collect dust. I hear rumors of a larger version coming in the future. I'm looking forward to it.
