The design on the handle of the Kizer Ki4423 is a work of art…literally. The designer (Kim Ning) incorporated two important Ancient Chinese Symbols: “Ling Zi (Pheasant Tail)” and “Hui ZhuanLun (Gyroscopewheel)” inspired by a treasured Chinese sword. It has probably the smoothest opening action of any knife I’ve ever seen, probably because it is made entirely by hand. The fit, finish, buttery smooth action, razor sharpness, and materials are exactly what you look for in a knife twice this price. The new 4423 from Kizer is a knife you must handle to appreciate just how nice it really is, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
This is a very nice folder with a top-of-the-line stonewashed S35VN stainless steel blade. The blue anodized titanium handle has a sturdy frame-lock and a custom finished surface texture which provides better than adequate grip. The design is set up with a tip-up carry pocket clip and comes with nylon belt sheath to protect it. The blade is very well balanced and I have found it to be extremely easy to open with one hand using the thumb stud. It’s a classic folding design with superb ergonomics and even better fit and finish. Pro-Tech really give Chris Reeve a run for his money when it comes to manufacturing quality – each knife is absolutely superb. Check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

Very Spyderco Vallotton and Starmate-esque, the new Boker Plus Squail is a large tactical folder with serious style. The designer, Charles Marlowe, is known for combining function with elegance in all his designs, whether they be tactical or utility in nature. The Squail features a large 4″ 440C blade that is beautifully stonewashed and has a nice-sized thumb hole for easy actuation. The handles are linen Micarta paired with matte finished titanium bolsters for a refined looking and feeling knife. The jimping on the spine is very sharp for excellent purchase and the liner lock, though not grooved like it is in the picture, does lock the knife up with no play whatsoever. This is another awesome piece from Boker Plus and their decision to go with production versions of custom knife designs is paying off with some really excellent products. Keep your eyes peeled for more new designs and check out this handsome new tactical knife at www.knifecenter.com.
