KUV3403A1: Vanguard V3403A1 V3 Vigor Folding Knife, Black
"Veni, Vidi, Vici" - those immortal words of Julius Caesar were the inspiration for the V3 model line. It was the model that established Kizer as a force to be reckoned with in today's knife market, and now we're happy to see a Vanguard version with a more affordable price tag. The Vanguard V3403A1 V3 Vigor folding knife by Kizer Cutlery packs a lot of quality into a very compact package. It features a 3" VG10 blade with a drop point shape and brushed satin finish. The action is quick, snappy and authoritative, as with all Kizer knives. The dual thumb studs provide ample purchase and there is a large lanyard hole that will easily house 550 paracord. The smooth black G10 handle has a slim profile for easy carry and is extremely ergonomic. It features a reversible spring 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 Kizer feels quality is worth the wait. Each component in Kizer knives is precision machined and engineered to the finest tolerances. The final fit, finish, action, and sharpness of each knife is 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!
