KUV4458A2: Vanguard V4458A2 Begleiter Folding Knife, OD Green
Kizer Cutlery
The Vanguard V4458A1 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 3.5" VG10 blade with a drop point shape and gray titanium coating. The bronze washers allow for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives, and the action is quick, snappy and authoritative. The dual thumb studs provide ample purchase and there is a large lanyard slot that will easily house 550 paracord. The textured OD green G10 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 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 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.

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!

Great knife for the $$$
This is a great knife for the money. I feel like I'm holding a knife that costs much , much more. Blade steel is great for a light user.

Fantastic surprise
I was very suprised at how great this knife is. I bought this as a budget knife but it does Not feel like a budget knife. if someone handed me this i would expect a price tag of at least 100. Somehow it feels and looks like a gentleman knife and a tactical knife. the liners protrude ever so slightly giving it that chrome look all around with the blue around the pivot it is beautiful. the action is great and gets smoother with use. vg 10 blade that is perfectly centered and hair shaving sharp out of the box. not to heavy. the g10 is mildly aggressive. enough for great grip but not enough to be hard on your pocket. great lock up. the only con is the pocket clip could secure a bit more but I dont think it would ever be an issue. I might bend it a little to put my paranoid mind at ease but other than that this is the best 50 knife ive bought in a long long time.
