The Ki4492 Alter Ego flipper by Kizer Cutlery is an in-house design by Kim Ning. It features a 3.55" CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade with a recurved drop point shape and stonewashed finish. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The matte silver finished titanium handle is slim with a milling pattern toward the butt end and jimping on the thumb ramp for added grip. Every surface and every edge are contoured for comfort so there are no hot-spots. It comes with a tip-up carry pocket clip that is reversible for lefties and a replaceable lockbar insert that doubles as an overtravel.
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.
The Prime series grew out of the Kizer team's love of knives. These designs share the same material and production method as the Bladesmith series but use more internally inspired designs. They believe that the customer will find some truly unique and ever-changing designs in the Kizer Prime products.
