Excellent knife. Razor sharp with a super smooth action. Very compact, and the textured inset on the grip helps it stay clipped to your pocket. One of my favorite Benchmades, and would recommend it to anyone who needs a small and discreet well-made pocket knife.
This is my third Ken Onion knife. I like the ambidextrous thumb stud. Best of all it's made in the USA !
It's a heavier knife, and feels solid. After using it a month or so, I'm pretty happy. Great general purpose knife for camping trips, hunting, you name it.
The knife is difficult to flip even after taken apart and cleaned/ reoiled. The jimping on the top front of the knife is very sharp and the flipper is located in the middle of the jimping such that it prevents the flipper from from being actuated without hurting your finger. A very poor design. The knife also has three holes going all through both sides of the carbon fiber scales toward the top rear of the knife. There is NO apparent reason for these holes as far as I can see. From the pictures it was difficult to tell that they were holes instead of screws. Kind of a surprise. Blade is not real sharp either. I think this one should go back to the drawing board. On the positive side, the blade centering was good and the overall appearance of the knife would be OK if it we're not for the three holes in the carbon fiber.
As a folding knife goes, reliability is a main feature in a folding knife. You need to rely on the fact the knife will close ONLY when you want it to. The Ripstop II is very lightweight, easy to clean(and easy to tell when dirty) and has a slightly larger blade & serrations then the Ripstop I. But they both share the fact that in gripping the knife, it's possible to accidentally close it while using it. In handing the knife to a friend, I always make sure to show them the framelock & how easy it is to disengage. Since then, the knives(I bought 10 of them as gifts) have been relegated to permanent duty in my first-aid kits/BOBs so that I'm the only one who'll use them. Other then that, they're great in the fact they need little maintenance & keep a reasonable edge.
I live in an area where there are many types of fresh fruits. This knife has been idea for me in cutting and sharing those fruits with others. I highly recommend this product.
This is my first Kizer knife. I had read many positive things about this company and I wanted to see for myself the quality they offer. I'm very impressed. Blade alignment is perfect; the blade was also razor sharp when it arrived and it's held a good edge. Flipping action is effortless and swift. (A knife that's made to flip open this quickly and easily by finger force alone makes an automatic knife seem virtually pointless.) Extra screws are provided in the box - a nice touch. The carbon fiber inserts fit so perfectly into the titanium handle that you can barely feel the seams. Care was put into the making of this knife, and it's a pleasure to handle. With this Kizer model you're clearly getting a knife that's competitive with others costing at least twice as much. And, because it works so well you won't leave it tucked away. If you're like me, anyway, you'll clip it to your pocket (it slides in and out effortlessly, by the way) and use it.
Hope you get to read this. ; <} BIG, BAD MEAN AND FRICKIN RAZOR SHARP! Top quality brand, design and materials. My favorite big folder. This is original version with AUS-6 blade and mirrored flats. New oes have carpenters cts xhp. Yow. The A6 polishes great and looks better. Xhp on these kmives always looks smudged and dirty, but it cuts like crazy. Your choice. Best lock out there for a big knife like this, tri-ad is a beast. But why name your lock after a famous scary international network of Chinese gangs? Lock will eventually wear and develop lock rock., remember to slice, not hack. I still have an 8 year old kmife with a little bit of rock and a lot of dings and scratches. The XL is so big you look.like a dork if you take it out in public. This knife is huge, just dwarfs 4 inchers, but it carries well. A proven design, I carry one and also keep a spare at home. In the words of Marl Malden, "Don't leave home without it." Because you just neve know.
