The Vanguard Series brings excellent value to high-quality designs. Since the start of Kizer Cutlery, they have focused on the high end of the knife market with their impeccable quality and premium materials. This has earned them a place in the hearts of their fans. To increase the accessibility of Kizer brand products, they took the designs of the Bladesmith and Prime Series, and while keeping the quality at the same high level, re-forged them using materials that bring extra value for the money spent. Kizer uses only materials that have stellar performance, such as VG10 for the blades and G10 or stainless steel for the handles. This way, Kizer products are available at all budget levels but still maintain that incredible quality of construction.

I've been wanting this Kizer for quite awhile so I flipped a PM2 to buy it. Am I sorry?, Hell No! This is an amazing knife with a super smooth action, top quality materials and incredible workmanship. This is the upgraded version with added gimping on the flipper tab as well as a D-shaped pivot replacing the free spinning pivot. According to reviews on this Kizer, this was the only drawback on an otherwise perfect EDC folder. Kizer listened and have produced. Highly recommended folder for the price coupled with excellent service from Martin.
