KUV4484A2: Vanguard V4484A1 TK Knives Kyre Folding Knife, OD Green
Kizer Cutlery
The Vanguard V4484A1 Kyre flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaking team TK Knives of the Czech Republic. TK knives grew out of the need of a pair of survival adventures and artists who were in search for a tough yet easy to carry everyday use knife. David Michalik and Robert Chromcak began their custom knife journey to make folding knives serving the same duty as fixed bladed knives, but in a compact package. Their experiences as developers of high-tech machining tools and artists helped TK Knives excel in both function and style. The Kyre features a 3.42" VG10 blade with a wide drop point shape and additional thumb slot opening method. 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 milled OD green G10 with a very ergonomic curved shape. This is a compact knife with elegant stylish looks and is capable of striking performance. It's a remarkable package of style and power with a fascinating combination of the techno-age and traditional values. 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.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip
REALLY good, but also had notable issues.
First of all, action is really good. Blade can drop free after releasing the lock if that's what you're into. Ergonomics are simple and GREAT, in most grips. Carries well. Weight is more than reasonable as the liners are milled out. There are some issues though,-Pocket clip is sharp around the edges. Hurts if your hand hits it while walking. Also the tip of the clip is not angled enough and has begun to eat at my pocket-Blade came with a LOT of visible scratches. It almost looks as if they tried to stone-wash the blade, but there's a certain cloudiness and unevenness to the finish. It's hard to describe, and doesn't look like a true stone wash. One side of the blade has it much more than the other.-Knife is really quite dull out of box. It also came with a slight recurve as a result of whoever ground the relief edge.-HUGE relief edge angle, and a pretty damn uneven one at that (approx 68 degrees inclusive). the blade is also thicker behind the edge than expected. Some serious re profiling will be needed.Overall one of my favorite purchases in a while. I just wish It didn't hurt my pants/ knew if the blade finish is intentional and why there are so many scratches on it. $80 dollar price point is more than fair nontheless.
