Product Description
Designed by former marine and knifemaker Glenn Klecker, the Kizer Ki4437 features a 3.75-inch clip-point blade with a wide belly that excels in heavy-duty work. Made from CPM-S35VN—known for its toughness and resistance to corrosion—the blade is cut with a flat grind at the tip for extra strength when piercing, and a hollow grind on the main edge for slicing and cutting ...

Just received mine today. This thing is awesome! I shave with and restore antique straight razors and when I sharpen them, Ill shave a bit of hair off my knuckles or hand to test it. This knife took the hair right off. It's incredibly sharp and probably the sharpest knife I've ever gotten right out of the box. The blade is so heavy I can flick it open almost effortlessly. The texture of the handle is a bit different than what I'm used too, but I like it. Mine also came with the pouch

Just received mine in the mail today as well. Overall a very nice knife! Needs a little lubrication in my opinion, but easy enough to flick. Liner lock is well tuned, and the clip isn't too tight, making it very functional. Albeit, aspects of the handle catch on my pocket no matter how I insert/remove it. The ridiculously wide blade itself has a nice stonewashed finish which is smooth and consistent.
Some aspects are not so great however. The Made in China sticker left a significant swatch of sticker glue that required some cleaning. There also isn't much of a spine on the back of the blade, making it uncomfortable to place my thumb at the back. Most knives have some form of serrations or at least texturing on the back of the blade so that the thumb isn't being cut into by the liners (fairly large gap due to thick blade). The choil is smaller than it needs to be, making it less viable to hold with alternate methods (index finger forward). Although these are all blade geometry criticisms, so not something that would ever change.

My Kizer arrived this morning. This is a serious hunk of a knife! Awesome fit and finish as I have come to expect from Kizer.
Oh and yes, it came with a soft case and two extra pocket clip screws.
Very satisfied!

Nope! Gonna give this one a miss. That grind does nothing for me, brings back memories of the Tom Brown Trapper (Yikes!!). And it is butt-ugly in my opinion (subject to change). May be better in person and in hand. Going for the Delica instead!

I own this knife. Bought it for a 100usd awhile back. It's definitely a big knife but surprisingly disappears in the back pocket with the deep carry thin clip. The good. You are getting quality materials for the money. S35vn , titanium, g10 The bad. It's a bit of a hard knife. Feels hard in the hand with my hotspots that they should have chamfered off. So it's a bit raw feeling. You could sand off the edges. The detent is really soft. You will have to push the flipper rather than light switch it which is not so easy for beginners. Alternatively you can thumb deploy. The blade shape. I love the way it looks but function? Ok I bought this as a backpacking knife but honestly doesn't fit that role. It's more of a tactical or tacticool design for search and rescued. The tip is very strong and can you can pry with. The other cutting area is good for thinner material maybe like paper or a seatbelt. The reason I feel it's not so much an outdoor knife is you can't chop well with the design. It's uncomfortable with on the hand. Slicing on wood is not efficient either. It's a bit clumsy outdoors. But I can stab and slice cans all day.

Wow! I didn't realize that Kizer was still making this design of mine. I had no idea that they were still producing it since I haven't seen any evidence of it for nearly two years. $$$

Is Kizer screwing you out of your % of profits? If they are that is wrong and everyone should drop out of this buy. Kizer should be happy that a designer like yourself is collaborating with them and giving them credibility. Glen I think the Klecker lock is genius. However I find it stiff and difficult to use the further back it is put (i.e. CRKT Nirk Tighe). Up front gives more leverage to disengage lock (just a suggestion). Keep up the good work and I hope Kizer does right by you.

to me it seems like these are just knives they haven't been able to sell. like they've been sitting around in a warehouse somewhere. It's a 2 year old knife and didn't they just announce a bunch of new knives probable just clearing out old inventory for new

Already waited a month for the double bevel spyderco. Which was cancelled after all the anticipation. Payment is collected as soon as you punch your numbers in. Massdrop is overrated to say the least. My friend received two orders of just bare knives, no pouches as described. So expect to get a bare knife...

I bet the case will not come, just like my 2 other Kizer drops. MD should just not mention the case so it would be a nice surprise if it does come, instead of a disappointment when it doesn't... Ugh.

I'm definitely going to do my best grizzly Adams impression. This knife looks badass and its got one of my favorite color schemes. It's been a while since I bought a new knife, so I took this opportunity to make my first massdrop purchase.

You will be hooked if you like knifes. Massdrop has been very fair in their pricing and some of their selections are really interesting. ..I have been ordering from them for a long time and if an issue comes up they are very fast at resolving it.

Please check your measurements, the handle cannot be almost 3/4 inch thick and to just look at the blade length it seems to look smaller then almost 4 inches.

That's something Kizer is known for. They use high end materials and Chinese labor to keep the costs low.
This knife would be like $500 if made in the states

Tip down carry is a bummer. Since I screwed out of spyderco double bevel drop might have to get this instead. Edit: Just noticed the weight....no way
