KUKI4488: Ki4488 Chris Conaway c01c Folding Knife
Kizer Cutlery
 
The Ki4488 c01c folding knife by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and Sheepdog Knives custom knifemaker Chris Conaway. It's a production version of his awesome custom design, manufactured with superior quality and premium features. It's an ideal sized folder that gives you the beefiness of a Sheepdog Knife in a more everyday carry sized and priced package. The 3.3" sheepsfoot blade is made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a wide cleaver-style shape perfect for a variety of utility tasks. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The full titanium handle is a wonder of ergonomics, it really contours to each and every curve of the hand with milled slots for looks and weight reduction. It features a custom pivot and pivot collar, a lockbar overtravel prevention mechanism, replaceable steel insert, and is an excellent knife built with a quality anyone can appreciate.

Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but Kizer feels the quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives is precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action and sharpness of each knife is achieved entirely by hand, employing the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of cutlery masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long-term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.

Titanium Handles

Pocket Clip

S35VN
S35VN A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Just buy it!
Rather than restate them, I will just echo all the other positive reviews. I typically EDC mid- to larger sized folders (Spyderco, WE, BM, Kershaw), and had some hesitation about the overall weight (6oz+) and height of the Sheepdog. Yet, as I suspect is the case for most of us (and per Shabazz), I was drawn to the design as well as the undeniable value relative to materials and Kizer's reputation for fit, finish and action/detente.Bottom line: this is a beautiful beast of a knife, is not overly large (but it's a big'un), cuts like a sword, feels and looks like an engineering marvel, and is just a joy.Love it!

The best knife I have owned
The craftsmanship is great, It feels great and smooth operation, Feels balanced and strong. It is a fun knife when being used gets a fun reaction. Dang! you're carrying a meat cleaver! Once day I would like to get a one off from the creator SheepDog, but until then this is a great buy! Only thing I have encountered is the edge chips slightly if not kept sharp.
