We're happy to announce that we will be stocking Kizer Knives and shipping the best blades they have on offer Australia wide.
Late 2023 Kizer brought out some killer new models including the Gavel, Cryptid, Task, Varatas and Sparrow. Let's take a look at these new models.
This is Kizer's take on an office or gentleman's edc knife. It features a micro flipper tab that won't get caught in your pocket pants which works surprisingly well. The black burlap handle which is grippy and durable is finished with brass bolsters to add a level of sophistication. It has a 154CM drop point satin blade and at 2.88" it's a good size for it's intended use and not too big as to scare anyone around the office.
Overall the Kizer Gavel is a modern take on the classic gentleman's knife that takes a bit from popular models like the drop bear and assassin to deliver an outstanding knife.
The Kizer Cryptid is part of the Kizer U project where the design of this knife was submitted by a Kizer fan and voted on. It features a reverse tanto blade in 154CM with a well thought out design to the top of the blade which allows your hand to choke up on the blade and still be comfortable. The button lock is tried and tested and provides safe and simple locking and unlocking of the blade. The black micarta will wear into a very nice dark shade and Kizer is well known for having some of the best micarta.
It's great to see a large knife company take on an ambitious project like this to produce a knife that has been designed and voted on by the fans. Support this project so more can follow.
I think this is my favourite of the bunch. I love the reverse tanto blade shape they've chosen and paired with the clutch lock the Kizer Task is perfect for everyday carry. The 3.04" 154CM satin blade is a great size and even has an adjustable thumbstud if that's your thing. Again this has black micarta and over time it should become a nice dark shade while offering plenty of grip.
2024 will be the year of the reverse tanto and this early entry is fantastic.
A new colour variation of the popular Jacob Lundquist design, the black Kizer Varatas looks great with it's anodised blue titanium pivot and backspacer. The 3.25" S35VN blade is coated black and offers thumb hole and front flipper opening while the classic frame lock ensure the blade is securely locked in place.
Here is the Kizer Sparrow with a 3.27" S35VN stonewashed sheepsfoot blade. This Vincent Rizzo (Black Birds Blades) design is simply beautiful and there is no wonder why Kizer has now made three versions of it. This version has a titanium handle and framelock to go with the upgraded steel and longer 3.27" (previously 2.99").
Another great knife i'd love to add to my collection.
Here's a video by Neeves Knives that shows the new models.
