KUKI3457A2: Ki3457A2 TomCat Splinter Folding Knife, Rainbow
Kizer Cutlery
 
The Kizer Splinter flipper is a sleek, lightweight gentleman's knife brought to you by a collaboration between Kizer and TomCat Knives. The handles are made from titanium with a subtle textured pattern that is not only great to look at but provides outstanding grip. The compact design of the knife and ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip allows it to easily fit in your pocket. The blade is crafted from S35VN stainless steel with a stonewashed finish for a rugged and worn in look. S35VN is a high grade steel with exceptional edge retention and wear resistance. This flipper features a frame lock, reversible tip-up milled titanium pocket clip, lanyard hole, and ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip.

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

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.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great Knife
Overall, the knife's fit and finish is beautiful, especially for the price. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually like the size of the flipper. For me, it is just large enough to easily deploy the knife and perfectly proportioned for the size of the knife. For those who like large flippers, there are better options.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Hopeful, but problematic
I realize that my review of this knife was put incorrectly on another Kizer Klecker knife I purchased. Refer to that, if possible. Kizer needs to do finish work on these expensive and beautiful, but disappointing blades. Less styles and concentrating on the fit and finish of those styles may bring these into the top end of quality knives.

Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Hopeful, but problematic
Visually, this blade by kizer is of the most beautiful pieces of great materials come together into an imperfect little package. The titanium scales, premium steel, and intricate tooling, make this a high end piece. I think the term we use is jewelry for this delicate, potential gem. The undersized flipper is surely a design error, and were this needed for an emergency deploy, would not be reliable. The biggest beef I have with this is in the fit and finish, and I've contacted kizer about this, with difficult but polite communication, and eventual dissatisfaction. The lockup is solid, but the blade grind and stick is so severe as to be uncomfortable to use, as it just feels wrong. I've worked this blade without success hundreds of times to break the grind, and the razor sharp exposed titanium edge at the top side of the lockbar is simply lazy finish work, or no finish work. Kizer uses their precise machine cutting as a great selling and marketing point, which is fine, but it seems as if there wasn't a human hand on the knife beyond screwing (where the overused Loctite precludes easy adjustment) and packaging, and for a knife in this price range and these beautiful materials, is an absolute shame. A small amount of finish work by Kizer could've produced an absolute gem of a piece, but the company, in this case, seems to be concentrating on rapid growth and numerous styles at the expense completing the work on their knives.
