Kizer Cutlery: Feist Wharncliffe - Lundquist Front Flipper - Titanium Framelock - CPM-S35Vn
The Kizer Cutlery Feist Wharncliffe is a gem. I've been collecting knives for years including many (hundreds) high-end mid-tech and some customs, and this excellent design by Justin Lundquist as executed by Kizer is simply outstanding. Every detail is perfected and the value for the price is incredible. For knife enthusiasts the presentation in the packaging is on par with knives that cost five times as much and includes a ballistics nylon pouch case. In addition, just the front-opening action is fun to learn and perfect your technique. This Wharncliffe Feist clips securely to your pocket and rides right at the sweet spot for removal. I really like the grind on the blade for overall utility and the finish Kizer applies to the S35VN is outstanding. The lockbar and insert is rock solid-- you cannot squeeze the bar over it's that solid. I don't think you can find a better knife in this size and action for any price near this. This is an absolute keeper and carry blade.
