The critically acclaimed Christensen Knifeworks designed Critical folder gets a mini version!
This flipper knife features a 3" Wharncliffe blade made of CPM-3V with a thick swedge and ample jimping and an ergonomic micarta liner lock handle with a red pivot accent. Black coated 3V blade steel is razor sharp and has outstanding toughness and edge retention. The rounded jimping on the blade, look carefully, you can see that they got a little chamfer so that you can get comfortable feelings when holding this knife. The flipper also get some jimping, so this Barcalounger flipper plus the jimping will definitely give you extra traction.
Satisfecho, hoja perfecta, buena apertura y cierre, totalmente recomendado, hoja centrada. Desde Huelva, Andalucia, España.
The Kizer mini critical is a great knife. It’s a great edc. The 3V steel is strong well crafted & beautiful. It has great edge retention. I’ve used it everyday since I received it I cut cardboard and plastic for a living. I work seven days a week and I cut around 100- 300 boxes a day. After 20 days I am pleased to report that I cannot comment on the difficulty of sharpening it yet because it’s still as sharp as it was the day I received it. The micarta scales have a great hold on your grip. The deployment is smooth quick and snappy. The knife is easy and fun to deploy and close one handed. And the G10 gray back spacer along with the gray pivot collar are both nice aesthetic accessories. The price is great I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you Kizer
Another great knife from Kizer! I bought the 3v version. This is my first experience with this steel, so far I like it. I really like the overall look of the knife . Feels great in the hand. Deployment of the blade is smooth and snappy with that heavy metal sound I love at lock-up. Drop shut super smooth action. Only negative I have is blade centering in the shut position. The liner lock pushes the blade to the right so it appears off center. Blade centers up when that pressure is removed. Great knife for the money! I would recommend it.
a good knife overall but the detent is too tight
This knife is awesome - very comparable in size to the Spyderco Para3. Love the Bose geometry and the wharncliffe blade shape. The knife is very comfortable in hand. Interesting to see a folding knife in 3V, but I love the steel for fixed blades and it’s performed well on this knife as well. The only drawback I have is that it’s a flipper only to open. It would be nice to have a thumb stud or other opening option so that the knife is not always opened with authority.
