Kizer Cutlery Ki4418 Ichthyo Flipper 3.5" S35VN Satin Compound Blade, Orange/Black G10 Handles
KUKI4418: Ki4418 Ichthyo Folding Knife
The Kizer Ki4418 Ichthyo flipper is a unique everyday carry (EDC) piece with a very ergonomic shape. 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 orange and black layered G10 over 6Al4V titanium liners with the milling pattern providing a little bit of additional grip. The blade is crafted from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a stonewashed finish for a rugged and worn-in look. S35VN is a high-grade steel with exceptional edge retention and wear-resistance. This flipper features a liner lock, dual thumb studs, lanyard hole, jimping on the thumb ramp, and a tip-up right-hand carry pocket clip.
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.
Bold, ambitious, and built with uncompromising quality. Take pride in the Kizer Prime series. No matter where you are, always expect the unexpected. When others rely on you to keep them safe, rely on Kizer's Prime series to perform as reliably as its flawless worksmanship. Always be at the ready, and Kizer's Prime knives will add an elegant final touch!
