Just saw one in my local sports authority here in Japan. And as far as I am concerned. Put next to the n6 Two, or nBlade, this new K-Zen is just the same frame.. The black parts of the paintwork looks good as it is painted like a faded braid.. But the section on the neck was designed more for the squarer k-90, but looks just strange on this thing.. The K-90 might be a re-tooled stick, but the K-Zen and its family are just repainted ncodes..
