Vanguard Series

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!

Solid little knife
The first thing that struck me about this Kizer Vanguard was how much it reminded me of the Giant Mouse Vox/Anso Nimbus, another favorite of mine. But the Vanguard has a flipper which makes it even easier to use. The only jimping on the knife runs back from the flipper tab for about an inch with the grooves cut through both the scales and the liner. It has all the usual Kizer attributes, sharp and centered blade, and good lock-up. It's a hefty little bugger that feels great in the hand and the VG10 steel will handle everyday around-the-house uses with ease. It takes up very little room in your pocket. The only thing I would change is to make the clip more of the deep-carry variety.
