KUKI454A1: Ki454A1 Matt Cucchiara Flashbang Folding Knife
Kizer Cutlery
The Ki454A1 Flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Matt Cucchiara of Cucchiara Custom Knives. Straight forward with no drawbacks, the Flashbang hits like a ton of bricks. The powerful blade kicks into the fray with the flipper tab, combined with titanium handles contoured for easy handling, the Flashbang will be burnt into the memory of those who see it in action. It features a 3.5" stonewashed CPM-S35VN blade with an organic recurved 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 look and feel. Comes with a tip up carry machined titanium pocket clip.

Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but feel quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives are 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 cutler masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.

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.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN 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.
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.

An outstanding value...
I own over 230 knives. Everything from a $26 Kershaw to a few customs costing $1K and more. 11 of these knives are Kizer. Why? Because Kizer quality is consistently excellent in every knife I have. There's just nothing to complain about with these knives. They are a pleasure to use. I'm neither a hunter nor a woodsman so I use my knives like most of us do, opening Amazon boxes, cutting tape, cord, and the occasional foray into food prep, but I do use them every day. And of those Kizers, the Flashbang is my all out favorite. I'm currently in S.E. Asia for 6 months and I took 6 knives with me. A Katsu razor folding knife, 2 Kershaw assisted openers, a Steadman folder, a Pro-Tech Cambria flipper and the Flashbang. The Flashbang is far and away my go-to knife, with the Pro-Tech coming in 2nd. The Flashbang is great knife at MSRP, but at this price, it's a flat-out steal. Just buy it, you'll love it.

Cons: None
Like butter in my hands
I work use a knife almost every single day to cut rope, plastic box ties, and a whole lot of boxes. After only one day of use I was blown away of how slick the action was opening the knife. The handle has a grainy petrified wood feel and a perfect weight. Gifted to me by my brother, who has a good taste for tools and tactical gear, I am now glad I know of Kiser Knives. The clip is in a different place than any other knife I've known. I am looking forward to seeing how long this knife will keep its edge and how long it takes me to lose yet another knife (hopefully not this one).
