    I haven't seen any discussion on this model. Recently released dealer exclusive. I can't link to it but if you do a Google search it will come up.
    It's the handle of the Laconico Gemini with a shrunken Intrepid blade. Instead of a stamped clip you get a machined clip. The price is $20 more than the normal price of the Gemini which seems worth it for the clip alone.
    There are a couple vids on the 'tube.
    I recently bought a Gemini and it has perfect flipping action.

    I've heard great things about the Ursa Minor over at reddit's /r/knifeclub: https://www.reddit.com/r/knifeclub/search?q=ursa&restrict_sr=on&sort=relevance&t=all

    Then there's Epic Snuggle Bunny's recent review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj6lmpoob20

    Looks good to me!

    I've been eyeing the Gemini and while I like the blade shape, I like the blade and the clip much better on the U.M. I think I am going to have to get my first Kizer.

    Here are a couple of pics I took of the Ursa Minor. The knife turned out great. Kizer did an incredible job.

    Good decision! If I hadn't already bought the Gemini I'd get one. For now I'll stick with the Gemini. No pun intended.

    Wow, I love it. Was holding off on a Gemni for some reason, now I know why. [emoji41]

    I think my video was the first, could be wrong. It's a fantastic EDC. Something about that harpoon blade shape gives you the perfect thumb ramp. The clip is a huge upgrade over the other Kizer's I have. I believe the Sheepdog also has a milled clip. Something I"d like to see on future models from Kizer.

    Ordered my one, love the look of the machined clip! Clip blades make everything better.

    Yes the clip is a major improvement over the one on the Gemini!
    Love this knife! THE perfect EDC companion.

    Will the clip fit the Gemini? If so...can we order it? :)

    Anyone have the answer?
  14. Mesenzo


    Nov 5, 2015
    Yes, the clip fits the Gemini too! I checked and it's a perfect match.
    I also checked with Kizer and the clips will be available to dealers. The MSRP is $26.

    I wonder if the clip also fits the Intrepid.

    Nov 5, 2015
    Unfortunately the clip does not fit the Intrepid.

    Are the Kizer clips loctited? How easy are they to unscrew?
  18. Mesenzo


    Nov 5, 2015
    They are lightly locktited. So use a good quality torx screwdriver (you need T6) and you'll be fine.

    Wonder if it would fit the escort. Really dislike the clip on mine.
