The Kizer Dukes is a phenomenal flipper. The flipping action is snappy, responsive, and smooth with the ball bearing pivot system.

The milled G10 handles make this a comfortable flipper with a good deal of purchase. The steel liners are nested inside the G10 scales and there is little to no gap between the two.

 I like the pocket clip. It has good tension and enough of an upward flare on the tip that it slides into the pocket easily.

The pocket clip has fairly good tension and there is a slight upward flare on the edge of the clip making removal from the pocket fairly easy.

The fit and finish is remarkable. And this an amazing knife for $69. The Dukes G10 comes in two colors:

The red G10 from this review. And the black G10 below:
