MOKUTI TO THE MAX (AND MIN)
The Kaviso x QSP Penguin collabs have quite a reputation. Eye-catching aesthetics, rare materials, and unique finishing touches a la the Penguin Pivots are all expected at this point with each new edition. All autumn long we’ve been working with the QSP factory to bring these fan favorite specs (along with some new tweaks) to the newly minted Penguin Mini and Penguin Plus. Now in stock and ready to ship – there can only be one first knife of 2023...make it a good one.
A LIGHTWEIGHT COMBO YOU WON'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE
The Penguin mini shrinks the blade length from 3.1” down to 2.25” but maintains a similar blade thickness – resulting in a blade with a nice heft in a small footprint. We swapped out the liner lock for a low profile titanium frame lock to shave off weight and minimize the overall profile. This stout waddler will fit in most 5th pockets with ease.
Eye popping purple anodized titanium hardware accents the piece along with the purple titanium penguin pivot found only on knives in the Kaviso x QSP lineup. Crucible CPM-S35VN premium steel blade in your choice of satin or stonewashed finishes deployed via rounded, removable thumbstuds, which are newly featured on this batch of waddlers.
CARBON FIBER PENGUIN MINI
Included in this production batch are Titanium Frame Lock Penguin Minis with Carbon Fiber show side scales and bead blasted titanium frame with matching hardware. Penguin pivots? You bet. The CF penguin mini further reduces the weight in your pocket to an impressive: 2.09 oz.
QSP Knives have been building momentum within the knife scene as both a brand of EDC blades as well as an OEM manufacturer for boutique knife creators. Any knife leaving the QSP factory has a well earned reputation for fit and finish, as well as longevity after being used and abused.
