Considering how seldom many of us will tilt the blade,
a splitter mounted in a throat plate is an easy retrofit.

There are one or two aftermarket riving knife kits available.
Not all users have been that happy with them.

The issue is that the arbor rises and falls in an arc. In order
to make the knife stay in a consistent relationship to the
blade, a fussy pivoting widget must be made for a
retrofit.

Fitting a riving knife to a saw is far simplified in the rare saws
in which the arbor travels straight up and down on dovetailed
ways.
