KUV4467A2: Vanguard V4467A2 Matt Degnan Kane Folding Knife, OD Green
Kizer Cutlery
 
The Vanguard V4467A2 Kane flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Matt Degnan. It features a 3.5" VG10 blade with a gorgeous drop point shape and large finger choil to choke up on. This folder has a very streamlined look and comfortable feel in the hand and in the pocket. The bearing pivot system allows for smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives, and the action is quick, snappy and authoritative. The handle is made from smooth OD green G10 with stainless steel bolsters for a very high-class look. It is slim and definitely one of the most comfortable we've ever held. It features a titanium 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 feel 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!

Outstanding Performance for the Value
When I first heard of Kizer knives, I thought there would be no way I would buy a knife from a company that produces it's blades in China. But for this model, with a price point of $83, I thought eh, what do I have to lose? Upon the Kizer Kane's arrival.... wow. I could have never been so wrong. First and foremost, the fit and finish are superb. The stainless bolsters meet the green G10 handle scales seamlessly. That in itself is incredible. The VG10 harpoon style blade was, is, centered perfectly. And speaking of the G10 handle scales, their not too textured, they kind of remind my of smooth micarta. But it isn't a deal breaking and I rather think they work well with this knife. There are also no thumb studs, this knife is strictly a flipper.... and it flips extremely well, smooth, and is lightening fast. The knife has a pleasant heft, it is not a light knife, which I particularly enjoy. All in all, for the price point, with this kind of quality, it is a outstanding product. This will not be my last knife from Kizer. I think it is time to branch out to their higher priced models.
