Among the many knives Kizer has released this year, the Huntsmen—based on the unique, long-legged hunstman spider commonly seen in Australia and other tropical regions—arrives with one of the largest and most distinct blade shapes in the brand's lineup. It's Kizer's first collaboration with designer James Lowe, and the substantial 3.82" S35VN modified tanto blade is designed for outdoor and hunting activities, paired with a premium titanium framelock handle with carbon fiber inlays.

Kizer says the Huntsmen's features "mimic spider tentacles, offering both style and deterrence," and spider motifs can be seen across the knife, from the blade shape to the "eyes" in the thumb groove to the wider spacing of the jimping on the blade spine and handle.
