Description

The critically acclaimed Christensen Knifeworks designed Critical folder is now available as a mini version! 

This flipper knife features a 3" Wharncliffe blade made of CPM-3V with a thick swedge, ample jimping and an ergonomic handle with pivot accents. 3V blade steel is razor-sharp and has outstanding toughness and edge retention. The rounded jimping on the blades spine is chamfered so that you can get comfortable while holding this knife. The flipper tab also features jimping for traction when deploying the knife.

Do note the Green G10 version has a thumbstud instead of a flipper tab that features on the Black Micarta and Carbon Fibre versions. 

Some info from Crucible on 3V steel:

CPM 3V is a high toughness, wear-resistant tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is designed to provide maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistance steel. It offers impact resistance greater than A2, D2, Cru-Wear, or CPM M4, approaching the levels provided by S7 and other shock resistant grades. CPM 3V is intended to be used at 58/60 HRC in applications where chronic breakage and chipping are encountered in other tool steels, but where the wear properties of a high alloy steel are required.

Critical Mini - amazing

I am extremely impressed with this Kizer. Beautiful action , the micarta is top quality and the blade is razer sharp. Perfect size and great pocket clip.
I prefer the mini critical over most of my other knives that cost over triple the price.
The service provided by Mitch was outstanding . Very impressed with the ultra fast handling time and quality packaging.
Thanks again for the great service...

Hi Bill,

Thank you so much for sharing your insight into the Critical Mini. It is an outstanding knife in many regards as you mentioned. I'm really glad to hear that you are happy with it as well as our service!

Cheers,
Mitch
