Awesome EDC

So the pros of this knife in my opinion is that the overall quality is great. The design is attractive and functional. My hands fit the handle well; I have large hands. The edge has a nice toothy edge on it for working tasks, or you can easily strop it to a polish. Some things to know about the blade is that the recurve is hollow ground and that the belly of the knife has a flat grind, both have a secondary edge. The only cons I can think of which is strictly picky based on preference is that the knife only comes with green micarta handle scales and it’s a bit too heavy for any loose pocket. If you carry this knife make sure it won’t flop around. My favorite part of this knife is the XR lock. It is easy to open one-handed, and several ways to deploy the knife. This knife is worth every cent. If you are on the fence about buying this knife, just buy it with no regrets.

Beast of a Knife

Like my Headline said this SOG Kiku XR is A BEAST! Amazing design and hefty construction makes this the pride of my collection. Not your tiny light weight EDC but a "Manley Man's Knife" I have recommended it to all my friends and family. GREAT KNIFE!

Great EDC knife for the size

I bought and then received this knife about a week ago and have been carrying it about every day since (and since I have a number of pocket knives and generally switch between them every day or every other day that's saying something). My only point of improvement (but I wouldn't qualify it as a complaint) is it could have a little more detent to help the blade fully open even easier. Right now you have to give it a good push with the flipper or you have to sometimes follow it up with a slight wrist snap depending on the angle of deployment. Other than that, the handle has very nice grip, the blade is highly functional and sharp right out of the box, the XR locking mechanism is spot on, the deep carry pocket clip needed no "adjustment" to have the right balance of grip and release and the ramp jimping is functional. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this knife.

Little disappointed

Overall a decent attempt....but the blade has poor asymmetrical grinds and needs to be sharpened. It will not cut a piece of paper. The handle and locking system are great but why so dull out of the box? Side note, the pivot had to be tightened due to side to side blade play. Had higher hopes on this one.
