EverydayCommentary: Kaviso Mini Keen Review

0 15

I loved the original Ferrum Forge Gent. Its successor, with the oddly downgraded steel (S35VN became 9CR), is pretty unexciting, but that original knife was a compact, well designed, well-made knife that just about anyone could benefit from carrying. Alas, its a bit pricey for what it is today and the clip is pretty not exciting. Fortunately, Kaviso, a company that sells gear like Drop used to before it became keycaps and headphones only, commissioned another knife that hits this note perfect—the Kaviso Mini Keen. Yes, this is a follow up to Drop’s mega hit the Keen, a TFF (titanium framelock flipper) design by Ray Laconico. That original knife was a bit big for me, so when I discovered Kaviso had a mini version, I was all in. This knife is really excellent and worth a look.

Here is the product page. There are two different versions each with three or four different colored handles and either a satin or stonewashed blade—one with S35VN blade steel and a titanium framelock handle for $125 and another with 14C28N blade steel, a liner lock, and aluminum scales for $59. There may be an even cheaper version of the knife with D2 blade steel available some time in the future. This is a review of the S35VN version. Here is a video review from Wayne’s Sharp World. There are no written reviews.

He comes up with a lot of interesting companies, and knives I have never heard of.
