Kizer Cutlery Ki4423 Sovereign Flipper 3.58" S35VN Stonewashed Blade, CNC Dragon Thunder Glyph Titanium Handles
KUKI4423: Ki4423 Sovereign Folding Knife, Dragon Thunder Glyph
The Kizer Cutlery Titanium Framelock is the first folding knife from Kizer to use pure Chinese Traditional Culture on the handle scale design. Kim Ning, the designer of it, put two important Chinese Ancient Elements on the knife handle, Ling Zi and Hui ZhuanLun, by using a high-technology laser carving machine. It has among the smoothest actions of any knife in the building and the sheepsfoot S35VN blade is as beautiful as it is practical. An excellent design and superb quality folder from Kizer.
"Ling Zi (Pheasant Tail)", a decoration material for Chinese ancient Generals and hero's armet, like Zhou yu, Lv BuWei and Cao cao. And the Sun wukong, a famous character of Chinese Myth Novel, also wears an armet with two long "Ling zi". Wearing it always indicates that you are a capable, strong, brave, smart and powerful man.
"Hui ZhuanLun (Gyroscopewheel)", another vital element of Chinese ancient culture, became famous from the Warring States Period of China (About 2000 years ago). You can find Hui ZhuanLun (Gyroscopewheel) on a lot of Chinese ancient utensils. LingZi is laying along the horizontal line of the knife handle, and the HuiZhuanlun are spreading around Ling Zi, like many guarding soldiers protecting the King or the General.
Mr Kim Ning was inspired by a Chinese ancient treasured sword which has more than 2,000 years of history and just unearthed recently.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
