NEW KIZER KNIVES - OCTOBER 2020

NEW KIZER KNIVES - OCTOBER 2020

While Kizer doesn't release a lot of knives, what they do release are unique timeless knives and the prices are very reasonable. Kizer have been putting some serious work into their actions and they are now extremely good and consistent from knife to knife.

This year there have been some stunning knives from Kizer -  with a few that really caught our attention....Photos at the end.  

Click the links to see the specs and prices or purchase each knife -

1. The Vanguard Gemini with Black Linen Micarta handle and Bohler N690 blade. Every handle is unique due to the random pattern of the Micarta and Kizer  have done a stellar job with this knife. While the original Gemini is still a great full titanium knife and continues to sell very well, this new liner lock version with the Black Micarta handle is a stunning knife for buyers on a budget.

2. The All Black Carbon Fiber Sheepdog with S35VN blade. This full size Sheepdog jumps to a higher price bracket but has the excellent S35VN steel blade as all the standard size and Mini Sheepdogs do (the Vanguard XL and Vanguard Mini Sheepdogs have lesser stainless blade steels).

Making a truly All Black model is a bold move for a full size Sheepdog. With the black Unidirectional Carbon Fiber handle, black hardware (pivot, screws and pocket clip) and stonewashed black blade, it's a lot of black to look at, but it works very well. These have been selling like hot cakes and we can see why.

3. The Assassin with either a regular flipper or front flipper has been a bit of a sleeper but it's picking up speed.

It's unusual for a knife maker to release two versions of the same knife, although Kizer have been making a niche for themselves with proper Left Handed versions of knives for a while now, a market which many knife makers are ignoring.

The Assassin is a beautiful knife to look at and with a 3 inch blade and 91 gram weight makes it an ideal EDC knife. Plus you have the choice of a regular flipper or a front flipper. The actions on these are excellent and we know a few customers using them as fidget toys.....which is not a practice we encourage but there it is.

4. The Matanzas  with Micarta inserts and lightly black washed blade. This is a stunning looking knife with the black and brown color scheme working very well. With a 3.4 inch S35VN blade and it's slim gentleman style shape the Matanzas has been an excellent seller.

It also comes with carbon fiber inlays and a stonewashed blade and when we have had this knife at the various Aussie Knife Shows it has sold extremely well.

The Micarta model with black blade ups the ante slightly on the carbon fiber model in terms of looks but both models are excellent whichever one you choose.

So those are a few of the more stand out models from the Kizer 2020 line up that caught our eye and our money.

Maybe you have another model you like better?

The gemini is awesome. I wish it would come in a left hand to match my Titanium version but it’s cool as it is.

I really like the “Black Linen Micarta Gemini” but I have never heard of this Kizer brand. I wonder what the general product quality is like. Also, I want to know the type of steel used in the blade. Normally other brands advertise that fact.

Looking forward to buying one if it is at a reasonable price.
