Many out there carry smaller pocket knives and I tend to like them for everyday carry. Today we will be looking at a smaller EDC blade known as the Zancudo. "Zancudo" means mosquito in Spanish and this directly relates to the size of the knife. Developed by Mike Perrin of Randall's Adventure and Training and produced in collaboration with Blue Ridge Knives. Randall's Adventure in Training is not new to collaborations. They have joined forces with Ontario Knife Company, Ka-Bar, and DpX Gear to name a few.

Being made from AUS-8 steel, sharpening the blade is a breeze. There is some jimping on the spine and ambidextrous thumb studs to aid those lefty's. This is one of the smoothest opening folders I've owned. Almost as quick as most assisted opening knives with little effort. In our video review we demonstrate this along side the Kershaw LEEK.
The lock up on the Zancudo is great. I had no slippage of the blade in my use. I've got a few scars from blades closing on me before with knives in this price range.
