    those look so rad! he just got a couple prototypes, so it'll probably be a few months before the full production versions hit the market.

    Thanks for that vid link Cobra, I'm fiending for as many details about this banger as possible. Haven't been drooling like this over a knife since my first rambo knife in the 80s!

    I'll jump in here with a quick comment, first thank you for the links, I'll definitely check them out. I haven't had much chance to browse online till this week, but on the Feist (front flipper) and Wanderer (thumbhole opener), the latest is that Justin has reviewed the prototypes and he's pretty happy with them. We are working with Justin on making some small changes to the prototype so that they will be even more user-friendly in your hands.

    the Feist is very light weight and inconspicuous, perfect for office carry in suit and tie I think. It is a knife that will not cause undue stares when you pull it out for the usual 8 to 5 routine in the office doing daily tasks.

    the Wanderer is a much more substantial knife and I think the changes we are making to it will make the opening motion and speed much more suited to heavy duty needs.

    Thanks for the info Kizer, I'm drooling like a rabid beast over both the Feist and the Wanderer. Any info on release date(s) will be much appreciated.

    The available dates will depend on the changes made to the prototype. I don't want to mislead by giving uncertain dates, but best guess is that we will aim for 2017 release, should not be later than 2017 Blade show at the latest.

    Thanks, Kizer. Both look promising.

    A special thanks for listening to customer requests for smaller models for pocket-carrying.

    This is a very nice departure from the plethora of tactical titanium flippers out there. I've been looking for a lip opener production knife and I think this is the one.

    Any word on blade steel? I'm assuming S35Vn, but I certainly wouldn't object to M390 :D

    Damn hadn't even thought about the fact that kizer does m390 on some models now... that would of course be totally awesome.

    The first release will be S35VN as that is our standard steel for the Bladesmith series. The M390 remains on limited release basis but nothing is ruled out.

    There will be actually 2 front flippers from different designers coming out for 2017. I'm pretty excited about the variation, but it does require a bit of change in edc habit, LOL. When you reach for the knife, the flipper may not be in the position you are used to for the first few days.
