The Zancudo was designed by survival experts Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall at ESEE Knives and produced exclusively for KnifeCenter by Blue Ridge Knives. The product is a slim, well-built blade that punches above its weight in terms of price and function.
The three-inch blade is made from AUS-8 stainless steel with either a black or stonewash finish – very simple, but effective. It is deployed via the dual thumbstuds and there is a very slight bit of jimping on the spine for grip.
The handle features a digital camo FRN scale and a frame-lock mechanism, which is a nice addition on such an affordable folder. Feels very solid while still weighing in at just over three ounces. It has a flow-through design and a pocket clip that can be reversed for tip-up or tip-down right hand carry.
