KUKI3471: Ki3471 Ray Laconico Gemini Folding Knife
Kizer Cutlery
The Ki3471 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 matte silver finished titanium 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, anodized titanium 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.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
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.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
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.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

Love Kizer Knifesv
Have several other Kizer knives that were on sale in the $80 range. Nothing for the money was as good. These are are hard use edc knives. This Ray Laconico opens smoothly ,quickly,solidly.The blue fasteners really pop. The handle is shaped and sized well for my hands. S35VN takes and holds an edge quite well and sharpens readily on diamond stones The packageing is truly over the top. To wit:Abox,Gift box,Azipper pouch,and a micro fiber wipe clothe. Very please withe Kizer cutlery Products.

Very nice Kizer Genini
After reading the reviews on the Kizer Gemini, and looking at the pics and specs, I had to have one. I just received my Kizer and it is extremely a nice blade. Like any review I read, you can not compare a nice to another, they are all different and unique to its own brand. It is not a sebenza but it does its work. I recommend this blade. The flipper is smooth just like the titanium handle. The blue anodized screws give it a touch. I ordered a spartan bead with Paracord and custom painted the bead blue anodized to match the Kizer.

Very nice knife
Nice flipper. I expected a little more after reading some reviews and according to the price, but it is good overall. Beautiful, good fit and finish. Just a couple of issues: -Mine came with a less than razor blade edge. It barely cut paper and needed some work to get hair popping. -It also came, not dirty but literally grimy. I spent one hour cleaning the handles with water, soap, alcohol, etc to get rid of the dirty layer, and did not get perfect. Out if this, a nice and enjoyable knife, a little overpriced.
