    You dont hear much about these knives. Does anybody own one? Thoughts, use, etc?

    Well, this much I would say
    That it's an eye catching design
    And more likely to be seen as a sorta combatives knife.
    So that might be one reason
    Why happy campers don't chatter about it.
    Having said that I think it has some very awesome grinds.
    That might put off some who view knives as utility tools.
    As far as actual performance goes
    you tube really is the best source to turn to....

    Also, anything smaller than the large kiku fixed blade
    Would find the skull crusher far too short a protrusion
    To be effective for that use.
    Not unless one has small hands.

    I handled the fixed blade Kiku at the SOG headquarters a couple of miles from my house more than a year ago. IMHO, the knifes eye appeal was it's best point, (to me), handling it I still prefer a lot of other designs. This is one reason I don't like buying sight and hands unseen.

    Was the handle uncomfortable or unbalanced? There are two sizes fixed blades did you examine both?

    Neither size was a comfortable fit in my hand. That's not a condemnation of the knife per se, just that somethings can look very nice but not end up feeling right. I've also had the opposite happen where something just seemed wrong until I actually used it and ended up getting one.
