I picked up a Kizer Alter Ego at SMKW a while back. It was a victim of one of their Flash Sales. For $85, I couldn't muster up sufficient arguments not to buy it. The detent is WAY to strong, even after this long period (more than a year) of time. After sitting here with it for a spell, let me say that the design is BAD. When I use my left hand and be sure that my thumb is not on the lock bar, it opens fairly easily. I am very reluctant to consider another Kizer frame lock because of this. I have a Kizer with a thumb stud that opens wonderfully. After poking around the internet a bit, I can confirm that this is a killer price. It's not like I don't have a LOT of Ti/S35VN knives. I do. Which is another reason that I am passing on this. Thanx for the great deal here, Jonas. Keep up the good work!

Other places are around $210, so $125 sounded like a clearance price. 7oz is heavy thanks to that lump of ti. Who don't have a roach in their house anyway

I don't know why I didn't recognize this as being every bit as big as the slightly ridiculous GPB1 😳

I read the specs, I watched videos, but its size still came as a bit of a shock lol Edit : I do like this one much better though, the overall size seems much more balanced between the blade and the handle. And it's more comfortable in the hand

I have the sheepdog mini - do you know it? It's smaller than the sheepdog. I like it. I generally use smaller knives with blades around 2" when I'm out, 3" or so around home. The small hunter is also about 2".

I've looked at it, but haven't handled one in person By "bulky" I meant the overall shape though, not necessarily the length. Similar to how I feel on the GPB1 and the Roach; both feel like bigger knives than they are (not that they're in any way small lol) because of the height of the blade more than the length

Damn. Love almost everything about this knife, but for having 0.11in blade stock, it is too thick. This would be an instant purchase for me at a handle width of 0.45in or less, but at the moment I have too many large titanium framelock Kizers. I honestly can't figure out where all the bulk comes from. It has thinish blade stock, doesn't appear to have overthick scales or wasted space, but somehow still come in at over half and inch thick....

That makes sense. Birdshot IV measured the vanguard model at .11

Mine is right at 5/32 using my untrusty 50 year old 12" desk ruler.

Damn, i have wanted this knife for ages, and if memory serves, the current drop price of $120 is $66-68 less than the usual retail price, so I might have to scrounge up some $ in the next 5 days.

Cheapest I'm currently seeing anywhere else is white mountain, where it's about $202 after a 10% coupon code. Seems to be $225 everywhere, and some sites listing it as discontinued I wasn't planning another knife purchase this week, but now I may need to too

Got mine today and am very impressed! Movement is smooth, even better now that it has been broken in a bit, and the blade shaves hair so that is good! Seema like a very versatile knive which is the reason I got it. All-in-all I am very pleased.

Finally received mine. 💕 Beautiful knife and smooth as butter. Perfect everything except for slight off center, which was easily adjusted. The flipping action was good. Edge grind was perfect. Totally worth my hard earn $99.

How do you correct an off centre blade?

Got mine yesterday. I actually received this one and it's younger brother the roach made from VG-10. The VG-10's flipping action is smooth as silk. The S35VN is rather stiff. It's also very dull. The VG-10 will shave the hair off my arm, the S35VN won't And it barely cuts paper either. Very disappointing to pay so much for a knife and have it arrive dull.

Do you immediately have to get an oil change when you buy a new car? Do you immediately have to empty the bag when you buy a new vacuum? A knife has ONE job, everything else is a nice-to-have. How we give knife mfg so much leeway on this is ridiculous when you consider how much money we're paying. I'm looking at you, CRK.

Spyderco use a consistent edge angle of 20 degrees. Most other knives come with all sorts of inconsistent angles even on the one blade! It's like they all grind them free hand. It really bugs me. I would prefer a consistent 20 degree angle to a sharp knife. It's much harder to fix up dodgy grind angles than it is to sharpen a dull blade with a good 20 degree grind.

Got mine today, quite the beast. Can anyone comment on the flipping action mine is a bit stiff. Lockup is super tight.

Same feeling on the pocket clip. Thinking mine has a defect. The flipper is quite stiff and does not always engage the frameloc.

Same here. It came lubed up. i worked it a bit, now it's a bit better. Only thing i noticed is the detent is lacking. I can open with momentum, no action on flipper.

got mine today...larger that I thought it would be. Reminds me of the buku I have although I don't have it on me so I can't compare the two right now.
