First Look: Kizer Towser X


This New Folder From Kizer Is Described As A Folding Santoku Knife. It’s A Bold Claim For A Bold Knife From The Chinese Maker. 

The new Kizer Towser X blurs the line between kitchen knife and robust EDC folder. When open it really does look like a Santoku minus the Granton edge. The cleaver-like blade is 3.39 inches long and made from a stain-finished 154CM steel. While it is described as a sheepsfoot, the blade is more akin to a smaller version of the kitchen knife.

This makes for an exciting piece that is as comfortable slicing rope in the garage as it is butterflying a chicken breast in the kitchen. The dual thumb stud openers and liner lock make the knife easy to open and secure to use. The red micarta scales provide excellent grip and a classic look.

The frame and liner are both made from stainless, and the tip-up pocket clip make this blade easy to carry. If there is to be a future for folding kitchen knives, this might be the blueprint for many to come.

MSRP: $99
