KUV3466A2: Vanguard V3466A1 Matt Cucchiara Dukes Folding Knife, Red/Black
Kizer Cutlery
The Vanguard V3466A1 Dukes flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Matt Cucchiara of Cucchiara Custom Knives. It features a 3" VG10 satin blade with a slightly recurved shape and sharpening choil. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives, and the action is quick, snappy and ultra-authoritative. The milled red and black layered G10 handle has a solid, stout feeling and is extremely ergonomic making this a great EDC choice. It features a stainless steel 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.

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!

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Blade Material
Awsome knife! So great in fact it has set the bar so high that all Other budget knives can't meet it. The red and black g10 handle look great aswel as the satin blade that came decently sharp out of box, could of been sharper and thats the only reason for 4 stars but it is the best flipping knife with great detent the blade flies out easily. The knife is very ergonomic in hand and edc friendly due to its light weight of 2.66 oz. Great design from Matt and definately recomend purchasing this knife.
