The Kizer Theta Ki4514 is a unique pocket knife, designed by Elijah Isham. Characterizing for Elijah Isham's design style are the wavy lines, futuristic shapes and remarkable designs. It is therefore not that surprising that Isham is a big fan of surrealistic art. We clearly see this in his designs.
The Kizer Theta has a wharncliffe-shaped blade made from S35VN steel. The knife has a stunning stonewashed finish on the full flat-grind of the blade, and a satin finish on the flat part close to the thumb hole. The Theta can easily be opened with the unusual flipper. When closed it sticks out pointing forward, instead of pointing to the side as we see with many pocket knives. Characterizing for his designs is the Edge Below Tab. With it the edge is lower than the flipper, which stays nice and hidden when the knife is opened. Once opened the framelock firmly keeps the blade in place. A steel insert prevents wear and tear in the long term.
The titanium handle is also designed with great ingenuity. The handle is pointed and enhanced with stunning facets. These make the knife look interesting and ensure that the handle doesn't have any sharp or pointed edges. A nice detail is the slim pocket clip which is milled out of one piece of titanium. The entire handle is kept together with only two screws. As a result the Kizer Theta is easy to maintain.
