Kizer Cutlery Vanguard Ki4458T1 Begleiter Folding Knife 3.54" S35VN Satin Tanto Blade, Titanium Handles
KUKI4458T1: Vanguard KI4458T1 Begleiter Folding Knife, Gray Titanium
The Vanguard Ki4458T1 Begleiter folder by Kizer Cutlery is a slender, yet tactical everyday carry piece that we feel brings much more to the table than its price point would suggest. It features a 3.54" S35VN blade with a tanto design and a satin finish. The ball bearings in the pivot allow for smooth blade opening, and the action is quick, snappy and authoritative. The flipper tab provides ample purchase and there is a large lanyard slot that will easily house 550 paracord. The titanium handle has a slim profile for easy carry, is extremely ergonomic, and even has a blue ringed pivot for that extra pizzazz. It features a pocket clip, stainless steel liners and is sure to become an everyday carry favorite in no time since it's priced well below its design and quality levels.
Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or water jet but the quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives are precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action and sharpness of each knife are achieved entirely by hand, employing the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of cutlery masters. Dedicated craftsman honoring the long-term goal of making the best knives possible is what Kizer brings to you.
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. That purpose is performance, reliable to the end. 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!
