Kizer JungesDesigned by Carlos Elstner, the Kizer Junges is basically a bowie that fits in your pocket. Now, the first thing that caught our attention was the look. We dig it. It’s like he reimagined an Old West knife modernized it.

The Junges has a 3.06” clip point blade with a blade thickness of 0.11”. It has a long slicing edge and a powerful pierce, just like you’d expect on a Bowie. It’s a manual flipper with ambidextrous thumb studs and a washer pivot assembly. The action is quick and smooth, the thumb studs are easily indexed. There’s jimping along the thumb ramp and a slight finger choil for a secure grip when you choke up on this bad boy.

The handles on this linerlock come in either black G-10 or brown canvas Micarta. The front handle has circular cutouts which not only look cool, they keep the weight down to about 3.57 ounces. It has a blue anodized pivot collar for a nice splash of color. The handle shape is almost rectangular which is likely a nod at the old Coffin Bowie which was popular back in the late 1800s and into the 1900s. It has an ambidextrous, deep carry, tip up pocket clip and lanyard hole. The Junges has a closed length of 4.07” closed and it’s 7.13” overall.
