This Kitefin has a gold groove titanium handle.
The WE Knife Co. Kitefin may just be one of the best EDC knives ever made. It's got a slim and slicy CPM-S35VN blade, with a spear point profile that lends itself well to piercing tasks. The handle accommodates several grips, including choking up on the blade using the integrated finger choil.Features:
I've had two Kitefins -- one marbled CF and one blue Ti -- for a couple weeks now, and am updating my earlier reviews. For both versions, the fit and finish are excellent in typical WE style, and they both have great ergonomics. These knives are small and light, just about perfect for EDC (with one caveat below). The edges were shaving sharp out the box and well ground. The actions... well, they are snappy to open, but were not as smooth out of the box as most WEs and Civivis. The marble CF broke in beautifully with a little tuning of the pivot and some lube. But the blue one for whatever reason I can't get as smooth without loosening the pivot enough to de-center the blade. Both models lock up reliably every time, and only fail to open all the way if I deliberately flip them weakly. Apart from the action being not butter-smooth out of the box, my only other issue is the clip. The flamed titanium looks awesome, and I love the (theoretical) deep carry, but the inner curve of the clip where it attaches to the knife catches on the edge of my pocket (jeans) every time. I wish they had either recessed it into the handle or used slightly thinner stock. It's so difficult to get it fully down to the deepest carry position (and so likely to tear up your pocket edge over time) that I've stopped trying to push it all the way down, effectively making this a non-deep-carry clip. It's a shame, because the clips look great. Still, at this price point, I'm overall very happy with the purchase.
