When we saw the announcement about the Kizer Soze, we admit we twittered a bit and fell instantly in thrall. The Kizer Soze is one of the more fantastically interesting and different knives on the market. That shouldn’t be a surprise since it was designed by Elijah Isham – one of the most avant-garde, interesting, and in-demand designers today. Not only is it a unique design, it’s clever. Frequent readers know how much we love clever.
The overall theme of this knife is clearly and undeniably influenced by the movie the Usual Suspects. How can we tell other than the name? Well once you close this knife, the blade of the Kizer Soze completely disappears. Another touch, it vaguely resembles a coffin just enough to be clever without being on-the-nose or going all out camp.
The stonewashed 3.65” S35VN dagger blade opens smoothly and easily on the ball bearing pivot system. The handles are available in carbon fiber with a contrasting titanium bolster or titanium with a contrasting bolster. Accenting the handles is a anodized titanium pivot collar. It locks with a liner lock and houses a deep carry tip-up pocket clip.
