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 black 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.
