KUKI5465A1: Ki5465A1 Matt Cucchiara Compadre Folding Knife
The Ki5465A1 Compadre flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Matt Cucchiara of Cucchiara Custom Knives. A loyal friend at your side, the Compadre stands ready to see you through all your troubles and celebrate all the good times with abandon! Despite the large size, the Compadre remains a lightweight and comfortable user anytime. It features a 4" stonewashed CPM-S35VN blade with an organic recurved shape and finger choil. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. The matte silver finished titanium handles are some 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. It features a replaceable steel lockbar insert that doubles as an overtravel preventer and comes with a tip-up carry, milled titanium pocket clip.

The final fit, finish, action and sharpness of each knife are 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.

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.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
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.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
