KUKI4448: Ki4448 Justin Gingrich GTi Assist Folding Knife
The Kizer Ki4448 Assist flipper is a very good looking everyday carry (EDC) from Justin Gingrich and Kizer Cutlery with a nice stout feeling in the hand. Boosted by a powerful spring, the Assist will jump into action with lightning speed. With a razor sharp CPM-S35VN blade and a window punch at the pommel, the Assist is the perfect companion for any occasion or that special place in your Go-Bag. The handles are made from black G10 with a comfortable, ergonomic shape and beautifully milled pattern. The index finger groove and multiple spots of jimping on the titanium liners lock it into your hand during use. The blade is a very utilitarian drop point shape, crafted from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a gray TiCN coated finish. S35VN is a high-grade steel with exceptional edge retention and wear resistance. The knife features a flow-through design, liner lock, flipper tab, dual thumb studs, reversible tip-up pocket clip, and lanyard slot. Designed by Ontario Ranger fixed blade series brainchild Justin Gingrich.
