The Kizer Vanguard Lan, designed by Azo and Reyknife, is a solid EDC cutting tool. With a simple flip of the finger, the blade comes flying out and is firmly locked in place. Its deep carry pocket clip is reversible, and can be adjusted to be carried even deeper thanks to a third, optional attachment hole on each side. If you are craving a good looking, budget friendly knife to fulfill your day-to-day cutting needs, this one will make a fine addition to your collection.

Think of it as an adult-sized Kershaw Skyline with good action. An action so good I dropped the blade on my thumb the first time I went to close it. Rock-solid lock up, but the blade will literally fall all the way closed. The ONLY complaint I have is the pocket clip. And not the clip itself, but that it’s not countersunk into the grips. The grips are also very aggressive, but the thin profile makes it still very easy to deploy from the pocket. This is the best sub $100 EDC I’ve ever owned. I would have loved to have the micarta grips as an option with the black Tanto. Really wish they’d offer more configurations as this is a perfect EDC.
