The well-known Chinese brand Kizer Cutlery has published a short video in which they presented their new series of Catshark pocket knives, created in collaboration with designers Azo Mai and Yeu Dong. At the moment, there are two versions in the series, which differ in color scheme, overlay materials, as well as the design of the flipper..
The Catshark blade can be removed both with a hole and a flipper, which can also be used as an opener, while there is no rigid fixation of the blade. Instead of traditional locks, a spring-loaded ball detent is used, which protects against arbitrary closing, but is not designed for loads. At the same time, for a more reliable fixation of the blade, there is a special hole created for a fixing metal rod of the appropriate diameter.
The total length of the open knife is only 130 mm, when folded it is no more than 81 mm. The blade, which reaches a length of 49.5 mm, is made of 3 mm Böhler N690 steel. The handle is formed by an overlay made of G10, or Micarta, as well as a titanium alloy on the back. Knife weight 69.5 grams. The handle design also includes a lanyard hole, removable clip and bit holder. The knives will go on sale next month, and their retail value will start at $106.
