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.
Tools share a common goal and purpose. Kizer brings you the Vanguard Series created with the purpose of distilling the essence of the Bladesmith and Prime Series into tools that excel in being used. This may not be your only knife, but this will be the knife you carry and use every day!

Only disappointed that I couldn't keep the knife myself. I gave it as a gift and all I can say was WOW. I was so impressed with the quality and style I wished I had bought two. Yet again dealing with The Knife Guy was a pleasure and I will definitely be back in the new year to buy something for my collection.
One of the best detents for a flipper knife I have felt. Love the look and ergonomics, I think this blade shape makes sense done in tough 3v steel.
