The Rapids is a November 2021 release from Kizer.
A collaboration with designer Carlos Elstner, the Rapids features a unique design feature with a very nice inlaid Black/Brown Micarta in the scales. Looks great in person.
The knife itself holds well in hand and has a 154CM blade with reversible pocket clip. If you like the Begleiter, you'd like the Rapids. There are similarities to the both knives. You can expect typical Kizer action on this knife. Buttery smooth deployment.
A good looking EDCable folding knife that's for sure.

Thanks to STUFF WE DO for his review on the Kizer Rapids. Action from 2.50 onwards.
This knife ticks all the boxes for my EDC. Really good looking natural coloured micarta scales with rounded texture. Fully blacked out hardware. Size and weight is perfect. Tremendous left/right front and rear thumb spider middle deployment is an absolute joy. The sounds coming from this knife are what you want to hear. The thud in the body is spot on. Love the black drop point blade and thumb studs are placed perfectly. Liner lock up and release/access are really good. I can’t complain here at all. Mitch was fantastic again. Adventure Carry EDC is my go to. They have everything I need and will continue to buy from them moving forward. Well done Kiser and Mitch of ACO. Regards Marc
Thanks Marc for yet another smashing review. Very happy to hear you're enjoying your Kizer Rapids. Sure is one good looking knife with superb action to boot! Thanks for your support as always!
