They say when the apocalypse hits that the only thing left standing will be the cockroaches. Kizer has other ideas. Exhibit A, the Kizer Ki4477 Roach: a stout folder with a wide-bellied 3.5-inch blade made from S35VN, which is arguably the best all-around commercial steel on the market. Though it’s apt for slicing and piercing, it can just as easily handle detailed cuts if you choke up and put a finger in the choil. The handle is tough as nails, too. Crafted from titanium, it’s just as strong as steel, but half as heavy. To deploy the blade, all that’s needed is a press on the flipper. The titanium frame lock provides secure lockup once opened, while the contoured clip offers right-handed tip-up carry.

Developed by Crucible Industries (one of the leading manufacturers of specialty steels for the cutlery industry) and Chris Reeve (arguably the most famous knifemaker in the world), S35VN is perhaps the most balanced blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. It’s made through a process of powdered metallurgy known as CPM, which results in near perfect consistency in the distribution of carbides. Compared to conventional melting practices, the CPM process produces a steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness.
