This compact version of Isham’s Megatherium design features a modified wharncliffe blade made from CPM-S35VN steel and a handle crafted from carbon fiber.

The Kizer Minitherium’s broad blade is ideal for slicing tasks that need a strong, steady motion, while the pseudo-choil allows for a precise grip for delicate tasks. When the knife is opened, the flipper is concealed, allowing for unobstructed use of the blade. The Kizer Minitherium has an overall length of 8.625 inches. Its blade length is 3.625 inches and thickness is 0.16 inches. The handle is 5.00 inches long and made from carbon fiber and titanium. The knife weighs 5.43 ounces and has a tip-up pocket clip.
At first glance, the Minitherium‘s blade and handle appear to be designed by two separate groups as they look unrelated. The blade is broad and rounded, while the handle has sharp curves and peaks. The blade has a modified wharncliffe shape with a curved sharpened edge and a long rounded plunge to the tip. The spine has a false swedge that transitions into a concave thumb ramp on the top.
