I like the design of this handle, but I'm thrown off by the size and angular features of the flipper tab in the open position, it kind of ruins the curvy lines of the rest of the knife to my eyes
I wonder if there would be enough flipper left to get it open if it were ground down to sit flush with the finger guard on the handle.....🤔 Edit : nevermind, photoshop shows almost no tab would be left exposed if ground down to match

Hard to argue with $100 tho.

Why you trying to wear down my resolve? Lol I'm trying to be pickier to save my poor wallet 😝
I like this design. Its a slight departure from what Kizer usually puts out.
Seems like Kizer has an axe to grind with those who suffer from trypophobia. JK, seems to be a thing with only their Sealion knives.

They've been practicing for a while now. A bit on this one:

I had this one and liked it quite a bit, but had to free up some funds and it fit a similar role to several other knives I wanted to keep.
This time around it's conflicting with the liner lock Dogtooth and the milled Buc, and I'm not sure it will win this contest either.

In the case of the Dogtooth, it's because I adore Wharncliffe and sheepsfoot blades, and the framelock Dogtooth is nice enough that I think I would be happy to have one of the carbon fiber or rosewood versions too.
The Buc is one of my favorite new knives and I like the milled bronze ones a bunch, enough to consider getting one despite having blue and bronze original Bucs.
It's not really about durability or strength at all, I think leaf spring interrupt locks (liner and framelocks) are best suited for light to medium duty work even in the context of folding knives. The Buc is probably a hair sturdier than the Sealion but it doesn't matter to me.
It's more about the action of each and the blade profile. I have a bunch of perfectly good drop point S35VN flippers already, including a number of Kizers. I don't have many sub-2.5oz 3+" Wharncliffe flippers with a super thin grind and thin blade stock.
The Buc is pretty and if the blades can be swapped between it and the Dao then maybe I could get a plain Dao later and use the milled Buc as the handle. I also just like WE Knife construction best of the manufacturers I've tried. I agree with you on the good build quality of Kizer knives, I especially like how well they contour their titanium and the way they can make a hollow grind look good. Their stonewash is excellent and one of my favorite blade finishes. I like them enough to have the smooth and 3D milled M390 Shoal even.

Thanks for that reply, I'm considering options too and I have yet to eye wharncliffe and sheepsfoot blades.
Again, thank you for your input
