The world renowned Kizer Vagnino Zipslip is now available as a Heinnie® Exclusive. In collaboration with the designer Michael Vagnino and Kizer we have added some new features to create this exciting new UK friendly folder.

The handle, of course, features the Heinnie® red G10 handle whilst a newly formed blade shape creates a compact design and very practical Every Day Carry tool. The deep carry, removable pocket clip is made from stainless steel and will keep your knife close to through out your working day. 

Blade cut outs have been replaced with ambidextrous thumb studs for one handed opening and a double detent lessens the risk of accidental closure during use. The blade is made from 154CM stainless steel and features the Heinnie® 'H' logo. The knife is supplied with a Kizer sticker and cleaning cloth and six replacement screws.

    KIZER VAGNINO ZIPSLIP HEINNIE® EXCLUSIVE FOLDING KNIFE

    Posted by Gerwyn Weaver on 19th Jun 2024

    Well after reading all the so called problems of the thumb studs I really was on the fence about this knife. No offence to all those of you that are struggling but you are doing something wrong. Yes this is not going to be a flipping easy fidget toy but all you need to do it push the thumb studs upwards towards the blade instead of out from the handle and have a thumb that’s not made out of cotton wool and BANG it opens !! If you’re a traditional knife person then you want be used to this sort of opening method and you will think your thumb has broken lol. It is a excellent knife which after 2 days I can flick completely open no problem and I have arthritis ( not sever but int fingers and thumb are not as strong as they was ) Honestly I can flick it open no problem, you lot really need to get some hang d skin on them thumbs . No offence intended to anyone but you just really need to get used to it and let it break in a bit before slamming it so hard as it’s a great knife for legal carry in our over controlled country.

    Kizer Zipslip HH Edition

    Posted by Dave Gutcher on 20th Dec 2023

    As always, the HH customer service they are justifiably so proud of was excellent. Purchasing was easy and simple, delivery quick and efficient. My issues lie with the product itself and why I give only 3 stars. The HH Edition of the Kizer Zipslip is nowhere near as good as the original. In my opinion, there are several reasons for that. I wanted a knife to hopefully improve on other EDC pocket knives I have carried previously. I am not a collector, I use my knives every day. I have become an unintentional collector by constantly seeking improvements on what I already have. I was looking for a reasonably priced, one hand opening UK Legal EDC with specific features. The Kizer Zipslip offered what I sought to improve upon my Boker+ XS. The Kizer was similarly priced but has the flat grind and a deep carry pocket clip I wanted. The XS has a hollow grind, great for slicing, but I sought a stronger blade profile for other tasks. Unfortunately, I struggled initially to find the exact Kizer model and specifications I wanted. Most UK sellers had sold out, including HH, one even stating the knife I wanted was "discontinued". So I bought the HH Edition and now wish I hadn't. The polished blade is ok but not for me. The drop point blade shape is almost a spear point with it's deep swedge and reflects light off it in all directions. The original Kizer Vanguard series has a more discreet stonewashed blade. Without making any issue over the different steels used, (there's not that much difference for pocket knife use), the HH Edition grind is totally different from all versions of the original Zipslip. It is much less of a flat grind throughout the depth of the 'meatier' blade making it more like a scandi. I did like that, and the chunkier blade, heavier due to the thumb studs replacing the Zipslip's original thumb holes. But the thumb studs and heavier blade are the major problem with the HH Edition, making it extremely difficult, very uncomfortable and at times, impossible, (when your thumb gives in), to open one handed. The thumb studs are too small and positioned in the wrong place, way too close to the 3mm thick G10 scales to allow your thumb to get any decent purchase on them. One handed opening is possible using the tip or edge of your thumb, but after a while you will have an extremely sore thumb and either start using your non-dominant hand, if you dare, or both, when a sharp blade is involved. HH could greatly improve their version of this knife by redesigning. Either a) enlarge the thumb studs and make them more comfortable, (as in the Boker+ XS), or b) reposition the thumb studs, or c) carve scalloped channels into the edges of the G10 scales almost down to the steel liners to allow the user's thumb, (whichever hand is used), to be able to effectively access the thumb studs, or d) do away with the thumb studs altogether and revert back to the original Michael Vagnino design. The free Kizer case supplied with my purchase was a nice touch but as the HH Edition has proved to be practically useless for my needs, it will be used to store the knife in a drawer. I have since been able to purchase original Kizer Vanguard Zipslip's with both orange and black G10 scales, in addition to the Micarta scales version and even the Titanium scales version. All the same designed knife, different steels used in the blades. I had to source internationally but well worth it. The Kizer Zipslip is a great knife. The HH Edition made me realise it's potential for me, hence the multiple purchases subsequently. But the HH Edition was otherwise money wasted. Anyone interested in the Kizer Zipslip should avoid the HH Edition in it's current form and look further afield for an original as I eventually did

    Beautiful knife

    Posted by Stephen Butler on 9th Dec 2023

    This looks and feel great and is super sharp on arrival. I was hoping this would be the knife that replaced my Boker XS due to the perfect size and shape of the blade with a comfortable grip. Unfortunately this knife is a little stif on the opening and with the small thumb studs which feesl a bit sharp when opening. If you could replace the thumb studs for the ones on the Boker this could be my No.1 knife

    Subtlety different

    Posted by Michael on 15th Nov 2023

    I love the subtle difference in shape, more pokey and still one handed open, I actually thinks it better.

    Fits good in hand, quality ok, but the thumb stud is useless.

    Posted by Tobias on 13th Nov 2023

    I would go for the original Kizer version. It´s twice the price but really one handed to open by thumb hole and still UK legal.

    Opening not great

    Posted by Jim on 21st Sep 2023

    This is my first knife. As I understand it a thumb knob is intended for one hand opening so why is it so hidden. I will either be sending it back (and look for a junzi) or scalloping the handle to see how much that helps.

    Zipslip

    Posted by BigNorthumbrian on 15th Sep 2023

    Everything the Boker Plus XS HH edition should be but isn’t. Fit and finish are superb, blade grind is nearly perfect, good but slightly clunky one handed opening, excellent deep carry pocket clip….in short, everything I wanted from the Boker but didn’t get….
