NO­MAD

Recoil - - I’ll Be In My Office -

411:

Knife­maker Dirk Pinker­ton was stirred by images of the 18th- and 19th-cen­tury In­dian in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the khan­jar dag­ger, which of­ten had a horse or other an­i­mals etched into the pom­mel. The No­mad is his ver­sion of this vin­tage knife, cre­ated as part of Kizer’s Blade­smith Se­ries. Kizer is one of the few Chi­nese firms that makes pro­duc­tion knives out of pre­mium ma­te­ri­als like ti­ta­nium while also match­ing the con­struc­tion qual­ity of many U.S.-based com­pa­nies — pass­ing on sig­nif­i­cant cost sav­ings to cus­tomers.

PROS:

S35VN stain­less steel blade comes sharp out of the box and stays that way.

Two-tone ti­ta­nium han­dle has in­tri­cate lines that of­fer grip­pi­ness and style.

The flip­per open­ing is smooth and fast.

Feels comfy in hand

CONS:

The blade’s belly is great for de­tailed slic­ing, such as skin­ning, but its curved edge isn’t as ef­fec­tive at longer cuts, such as those needed to break down card­board boxes. you pre­fer a ham­mer or Filipino grip.
