I rather like this knife and after a little stone time it will be amazing
Super Bad is a super bad name for a knife... honestly. Are they only trying to market to teenagers and young 20's men?? Kizer should perhaps invest in a real employee with a marketing background. Otherwise, the design looks relatively decent for what it is at that price point. (I'm personally not a fan of such a large choil on smaller fixed blades)

Ya don't think the designer maybe, ya know, named his design?
namhod
of course, hence my suggestion^ my statement holds true regardless of who 'they' are
WTF?
  • Cutting edge: 3.75 in (9.5 cm)
  • Blade length: 4.75 in (12.1 cm)
granted, I never really understood the point of a choil bigger than minimal. But to lose a full 0.5" of metal for... what? Someone educate me on this please.

My current EDC does not have a finger choil. But when I did carry one the last time I remember would be stripping the outer jacket off of multi conductor cabling. I used the conventional choil grip to make the ring cut, then switched to a tip control grip where the tip of your middle finger is in the choil and your index finger is at the tip,to make the length cut. This cable is about 1" thick of that makes it easier to imagine.

I guess my question is... does the choil really add to control? how does it help? How is a 4.25" piece of metal with a 3.75" sharpened section better than a knife with no choil and a 3.75" sharpened section?
Actually bought this knife, got it today in the mail. Very nice ergonomics--really fits the hand with a choice of at least two grips. Not wild about the "stonewash" finish. The Kydex sheath is quite substantial but it's strictly a right-handed affair and that makes it less useful to god's chosen people: we of the left-handed persuasion.
Can't recall exactly why I ordered this knife, but I'm sure it will do the job--should the reason ever come to mind again.

You can flip the belt loop to the other side of the sheath. Viola, it's left handed. The cut out of the sheath no longer matches but it does work, and looks fine.

Very creative, might give it a try.
Huh, here I was thinking that this was a survival knife, what with the wide blade, thickish stock, short grind, and reinforced tip, but apparently it is "urban tactical". Now I am a tad concerned about all the "skinning" and "chopping" it is supposed to be good at.

I do wish this had a carbon steel rather than stainless.

Maybe this is urban tactical https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQrTGE4wwwA
This knife looks awesome! Ugh...I’m in.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. The new drop for the WE Vindex is very "meh" on price/convenience: I'll just order from a web retailer who has it in stock and pay the $3-9 premium to have it in a couple of days.
This drop, on the other hand, is a bona fide deal... The two standard bearers for price/convenience, BHQ and Knifecenter, both have the Superbad for $146 vs. the $90 for Massdrop high end commitment. For a ~40% savings, I can delay gratification a few weeks.

Reate made the Prizm.
Certain knife communities have had an insane negative reaction to Massdrop in the form of refusal to pay normal secondhand prices for knives that have been dropped here.

Which is funny, because who knows if the original owner bought it here (not the exclusives, obviously), or paid full price, or bought it off ebay with a coupon code, or got it on a black Friday deal, or..or...or.....
Original price paid doesn't HAVE to equate to a lower second hand value. If the seller chooses to pass along the savings, I think that's great....but the buyers shouldn't be making 'mass' assumptions. (get it? Mass... Mass... Lol)
I love the design, but VG10 can't be a good steel for hard outdoor use. Too prone to chipping right?
JRuse
Not really. If anything, it hardens a bit on the soft side, and will require more frequent stropping/resharpening compared to something like S35VN or M390. The plus side is it is relatively easy to sharpen, and can take a fairly keen edge.
This strikes me more as a tactical/defensive knife vs. a bushcrafting knife, though.
ReefBlastbody
I really wish they had geared this toward camping/bushcraft rather than mall ninja use.
Too bad no international shipping.
How do you open and close these fixed-blade knives?

Plasma cutters and 20 ton shop presses have worked for me in the past.
I picked up a folder that he designed for Lansky, 440C. It was quite cheap; $20 if my memory works. The appearance is VERY similar, It's operation does not require specialty tools like the fixed blades do.
