The Ki3471C1 Gemini flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Ray Laconico of LVKnives, based off his awesome Jasmine flipper. It features a fully flat ground 3.125" stonewashed S35VN blade with a gorgeous drop point shape. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The carbon fiber handle is slim and definitely one of the most comfortable we've ever held. Every surface and every edge is contoured for comfort and gives the knife a very high-class feel and look with the blue anodized hardware. It features a lockbar overtravel prevention mechanism, replaceable steel insert and comes with a tip-up carry, milled titanium pocket clip.
Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or waterjet 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.
