KnifeNews: Kizer Smolt Sees Jonathan Styles Working in Fixed Blade Format

0 7

New stuff inbound from Kizer soon, including the Smolt, a rugged, high-performance fixed blade with a compact form factor.

There’s no arguing with the Smolt’s drop point blade shape: it’s just a pure, classic interpretation of the most ubiquitous, intuitive blade profile. Coming in at 2.93 inches, this is not an enormous knife, but it’s still a full-featured, multifunctional one. You’ve got the capacity to handle day-to-day stuff, of course, but lots of backup/campsite outdoors utility as well. The blade steel, 3V, is a semi-stainless that even today, years after its first appearance in the production knife scene, is a byword for toughness; combined with the fixed blade format, this means that, if you treat the Smolt like an EDC, it will be an EDC that can go above and beyond when it comes to hard work and high intensity chores.

Definitely utilitarian looking. As much as I do like the various premium folders coming out of China, I am yet to come across a “must-have” fixed blade. Probably because domestic, utilitarian fixed blades are still relatively reasonably priced. You can buy a custom fixed blade from any number of makers for less than the price of most premium import folders.
