The first time I encountered the Czech knife brand Mikov was in the Autumn of 2016. It was through a new friend that was close connected to the knife manufacturer. At the same time, conveniently enough, I was getting contacted and asked questions about Mikov in my role as a Writer and Knife Reviewer. The first model from Mikov I started using was the Mikov Fixir 232-XP-3 KP.
The folder is a multi tool featuring a 82 mm long clip point knife blade, a gut opener and a saw. The knife blade uses a lock back mechanism and the other functions is slip joint tools. The tool has a classic design using antler scales and a brown leather pouch.
I've now been carrying the Fixir 232 on a couple of hunts and so far I like it. The edge needed some polishing before use, but that was a quick fix. I'm attracted by the vintage look and the elegance of using a folder as my primer game knife when out hunting.
Let me get back you you with more information on this knife after some additional usage time i the woods.
