These are Justin Lundquist Exclusives, distributed in Australia by Adventure Carry.
The Feist XL draws from the original Feist design with an extra 30mm added to the overall length. The modern profile of the Feist takes inspiration from traditional knives but updated with clean, flowing lines for a sleek and minimalist look that will remain classy and timeless.
The refined, Minimalist look and perfect fit and finish sets the Feist XL apart from other EDC knives.
- CPM 4V Blade Steel (high impact toughness + wear resistant powder metal tool steel)
- Front flipper deployment
- Jimping on blade spine for grip
- Simple and comfortable handle profile
- Milling around the lock bar for increased lock access
- Versatile blade shape
- Deep carry pocket clip
- Pre-oiled scales
- JL Design
They all use CPM 4V tool steel - the beauty of this steel is that it has outstanding impact toughness while still maintaining impressive wear resistance, so its a very well balanced steel. All of that does come with a small trade off of corrosion resistance, though.

I like the sleekness look of this Kizer knife, I like this knife so much I brought 2
Another great front flip application, the harder to open of all knives I find but don't let that put you off that just adds to your skill development

I'm not sure how you nabbed this exclusive but well done Mitch, it does feel like a bargain with the 4v steel and such a beautiful, functional, clean and sleek design.
To my brother Peekay, we both know the power of one, just imagine the power of two...
Snapped up one shortly after it became available. I got the natural micarta with stonewashed 4V blade. Excellent fit and finish, great action with a light detent but it works perfectly as a front flipper. Drop-shut in closing, its remarkably fidget-friendly. This is a real workhorse of a knife - big 4V blade, neutral ergos, clean, clean design. Yet, it is just over 3oz. I must admit, I am a fan of Justin Lunquist's design language and also have several of his other designs such as the Feist (regular) and Civivi Lumi. This is my first 4V knife and already I am very impressed with the edge holding, yet the particle metallurgy makes it relatively easy to sharpen. Man, it takes a screaming sharp stropped edge. How is it possible at this price ? I have to remind myself that this is going for $140AUD. I cant recommend this one enough ! Merry Christmas, Mitch.
One of my favourite new knives, and a new regular EDC. Plus I like that no one can flip it ;) Which is why people buy flippers right?
