KUKI454A1: Ki454A1 Matt Cucchiara Flashbang Folding Knife
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.

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.
