Kizer Cutlery

Drawing inspiration from classic hunting blades, the Hunter series are the perfect companions for all of life's tough situations that demand a stout edge. Tested in numerous Virginia hunts, the dynamic design will be indispensable in the quest for wild trophy or inner peace. The handles are made from G10 with a unique textured pattern that is not only great to look at but provides outstanding grip. The blade is crafted from VG10 stainless steel with a satin finish. This knife features a sturdy liner lock, two thumb studs for one-handed opening, a lanyard hole, and a small finger choil for choking up onto the blade. The reversible pocket clip makes this knife completely ambidextrous and perfect for anyone's next everyday carry.

Kizer uses high-tech wire EDM machines to cut the parts. This method is slower than laser or waterjet but Kizer feels the 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!

Chinese Kizer...does not disappoint.
I guess, to be honest, when I’m buying a fairly expensive knife, I’ve gone to Benchmade and ZT. When I’ve wanted a mid-priced USA-made knife, I buy Kershaws made in OR. So, when I first saw this Kizer, and read up on it, I was intrigued. Owning it now, I’m impressed. The G-10 scales are incredibly comfortable to hold, look great, and offer a super grip. This is a manual opener, and out of the box, it’s not one of the fast manuals, like a ZT flipper. It’s one of the sharpest factory edges I’ve encountered. Overall, it’s just a Kizer made in China, more “normal” steel than their top grade, but an exceptional knife and value. The stainless liners are outstanding, and very strong. I may even buy a second one to store.
