Where did the name IZULA come from? The locals in Peru call the meanest, nastiest ant of the jungle by the name "Isula" (spelled with an "s"). We know it as the Bullet Ant. The Bullet Ant is known to be independent, tough, light on its feet, and a real aggressive survivor... the IZULA knife is built the same way.
The IZULA II is the same as the IZULA except that the handle is 1/2" longer & it comes with canvas Micarta handle scales and is extremely handy and will fit in most anywhere whether on a belt sheath or as a neck knife.

this is a great knife. I am using it as a neck knife for gardening and outdoor work. beats putting a muddy hand into my pocket to get a pocket knife.
the only thing that I would change is the handle. It is a bit thick for a neck knife. I think I would have gotten one without the plastic handle and just all metal (and maybe wrap paracord around the handle instead). but other than that, it is a great knife for the price, it sharpens well, holds a blade, and is strong for prying, etc.
This knife is my favorite EDC blade. It replaced a BM Barrage, and rides in my front pocket 24/7. It is incredibly easy to sharpen, and comes hair popping sharp. The blade is thick which makes it a slower slicer through wood/cardboard/etc, but the strength gained from the thick spine is worth the trade off. Liked it so much I ordered a second one for my son to use, and plan on giving more out as Christmas gifts this year to family. If you want a small fixed blade, I don't think you can beat the Izula II in terms of value/quality/materials/practicality. The included sheath rides high on the pocket, so if you plan on discreet pocket carry(my preferred method) you will need to invest in a pocket sheath for it, or else it will flail around in your pocket and drive you crazy, and stick out in odd but sometimes flattering angles.
