The Harpoon is a collaboration between Kizer Cutlery and James Buckley of Maverick Customs. This compact fixed blade knife is perfect for a general outdoor utility knife. It features a 3.875" D2 carbon steel blade with a black powder coat. D2 steel is a very popular steel used on knives that can hold a great edge and is easy to sharpen. The harpoon-style blade has a swedge near the tip and a dip on the spine to allow you to rest your thumb or index finger for more intricate, detailed work. The tapered Micarta handle has a finger choil allowing the user to choke up on the knife. The Kydex sheath has two button snaps giving the user ability to strap on his belt or gear. Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or waterjet but Kizer feels the quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives is precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action, and sharpness of each knife is achieved entirely by hand, employing the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of cutlery masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long-term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.
