You wanted a big knife, and it even comes sharp. It's a tad ugly, but no one is going to bother you...

It does look big! IDK, how much do Kizers cost?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Chico! There's no accounting for taste, as they say, but- I often find an odd sort of sexiness in things that clearly make no apologies for not prioritizing form over function.

It looks big but unless it was laying next to a ruler we have no idea of how big it actually is. Could you post some dimensions?

I paid 47 dollars for mine. You give me a little "bump" and shipping, and out she goes.

Now, they come sharp. More kirinaga than polished. But there's no sense in removing good metal just to get a shiny bevel.

Are you a polisher?

Sure. The knives are in the bedroom, and my wife is still asleep, but I'll do it today.

The Kizer is the same length as The Immortal, a knife you might be more familiar with. The Immortal is a tad heavier, but not by much.
