The Kizer Toro Flipper is a nifty pocket knife designed by Matt Diskin. It has lots of eye-catching details, such as the striking linework - large grip lines running along the whole length of the handle. But the Vulcan doesn't just delight us with its looks. The technical details are also superb. For instance, this knife has a double detent. This means that in addition to the detent ball in the lockbar of the frame lock, it also has a second detent catch, which helps to centre the pocket knife.
The lockbar itself is also beautifully designed. It has been rejuvenated with a kind of fin-like pattern. The end of the lockbar is made entirely of steel, forming a large lockbar insert.
You open the blade with the flipper. The jimping on it is another great detail. The detent is quite hard, because of the double ball, of course, but it actually does flip nicely. The last detail we would like to highlight is the lanyard hole, neatly incorporated into the backspacer.
This pocket knife was initially presented as the Vulcan, but today it is called the Toro.
