Kizer Vanguard Kane Flipper Knife
Looking at this knife, your first thought was probably like ours: this thing must be expensive. With its great blade shape and clean lines, you'd think it's got to be a custom, right? Think again. The Kizer Vanguard Kane—a collaboration with custom knife maker Matt Degnan—is actually a production knife. And as far as those go, the Kane is a rare combination of good build quality, versatile materials, and an affordable price.
The Kane keeps its price low by making use of more common materials, namely VG-10 steel for its blade and G10 for its handles. But don't judge a knife by its spec sheet. Its 3.5” drop point blade is large and versatile for even heavy cutting tasks. The G10 scales seamlessly join with stainless steel at the handle, bolsters, and liners for a sleek, streamlined look. Combine this with clever touches like a large finger choil for secure grip and a bearing pivot system for smooth opening and you've got yourself a knife ready for comfortable use. And while it is on the larger end of EDC knives, a slim profile and spring titanium clip lets you slip the Kane into your pockets for everyday carry.
Let's also not forget the best part: this is a lot of knife for under a hundred dollars. If you need something beefy and gets the job done and looks great while doing it, pick up the Kizer Vanguard Kane from Amazon at the link below.
