RCBRKR2CF: Carbon Fiber Zancudo D2 Frame Lock Folder
BRK Designed by ESEE
Zancudo is Spanish for Mosquito but besides its compacts size, we cannot think of another similarity between this knife and the buzzing pest. The Zancudo was designed by the survival experts over at ESEE Knives, Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, and was produced by Blue Ridge Knives. It's an amazingly slim, well-built folder that you won't have a problem carrying and using every day. The frame lock mechanism and carbon fiber handle, with the solid, full-length steel liners, provide serious strength to this small folder. The pocket clip is reversible but only set up for right-hand carry and the knife weighs in at exactly three ounces. It's a folder we're very excited about here at the KnifeCenter because it gets almost everything right in a folding knife, with excellent D2 tool steel, at a price point you're sure to be pleased with.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use
hard opening
I totally agree to the other reviewers (at least 2 as of writing this review) on how opening the knife is hard. Not a big fan of thumb stud + frame lock detent ball opening mechanism myself, much prefer Spydie hole or thumb disc. This will not be my daily user and will not bump my current EDC out of the pocket because of this issue.On the other hand I have Ontario Rat made by the same manufacturer in Taiwan, I believe, and very happy with that knife. Should try "R2D2".I had high hopes for this knife because of D2 blade steel, which I would expect to develop some nice patina over time; pocket clip reversible for tip down carry; 3" blade suitable for urban carry where I live; carbon fiber handle on one side, steel frame lock on the other side - seemed like my Grail knive by the specs.

Good inexpensive edc
I have to agree with jac review 100%, I have 2carbon and 2 frn versions, cause I am a knife knut. I have a extensive collection mostly upper and high end production, but I do value the inexpensive knives(about 30% of collection) for my rough use and well I like knives. I normally carry 2 sometime 3 blades. A high end, good budget and on a fixed blade at times(I am a outdorsman) the carbon fiber is done well, not perfect but good, blade center is good, d2 seems treated well, holds a good edge and takes a fine edge. I did lighten the tension of lock bar on one as it was a bit stiff to unlock. Pivot stays put (loc tite) overall very good for price. Feel in hand is ok not great but due to being a small knife but ergo helps with that, slim in pocket, clip has been goo so far, not bad, also have a couple avispa's in d2 that are good as well, and has replaced (though I still like) my rat d2's being thinner in pocket but rats feel better in hand, a trade off.

ESEE Zancudo
I feel bad for the first reviewer because of all the problems he claims to have had with his Zancudo.I purchased mine about a year ago and although not my daily carry knife on a regular basis when I have used it as my EDC I have not experienced any problems with it what so ever. The D2 holds a great edge, the laminate CF scale looks great, no blade movement in any direction when open, perfectly centered when closed, and with a flick of the wrist it snaps open and locks up tight. Mine is very easy to open and close with one hand. The first reviewer must have got a bad one some how. Maybe the ESEE QC Inspector let a bad one slip by. The previous reviewer should have just returned the knife to Knife Center and they would have gladly sent him a replacement knife I’m sure.
