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.

What a cool knife. Super smooth open and drop shut, and I love that the thumb studs are optional, although I prefer them fitted. Front flipping is also super comfortable. The button on the lock kept working itself loose, and I had to loc tite it, but that's my only minor gripe.
I think I've figured out why Kizer chose this odd name - this knife makes a subtle 'click-clack' when opening and closing like 'hic-cup' :-)
As usual - processing and delivery super speedy
