The Kizer Ki4461A1 Kesmec flipper is a very ergonomic, very high-quality everyday carry (EDC) with a nice stout feeling in the hand. The avid fisherman among the Kizer Cutlery designers saw the Coelancanth and became inspired by the living fossil. The Ichthyo and Kesmec are the resulting tributes to the world of the deep. The handles are made from milled titanium with a flame anodized finish. The angular design of the handle makes it very comfortable to hold and to use. The 3.5" drop point blade is crafted from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a brushed satin finish. S35VN is a high-grade steel with exceptional edge retention and wear resistance. The knife features a frame lock with replaceable stainless steel insert, jimped flipper tab, reversible pocket clip and lanyard hole.
Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but Kizer feels quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives is precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action, and sharpness of each knife is achieved entirely by hand, employing the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of cutlery masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long-term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.
