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.
