Customer Reviews

Very very nice.
Al H. on Jan 19, 2018

Just got my dukes today and was fully expecting a nice knife with great flipping action. My expectations have been exceeded. This is my first kizer and will not be my last.

Amazing Action
Akop A. on Jan 5, 2018

The kizer dukes is amazing always flips and came super sharp. The only bad and it's not even bad is that I couldn't take it apart to clean it.

Awesome knife
Drue C. on Jul 31, 2016

I picked this up and was totally impressed by how well it was made for the price. The flipper is smooth and the VG-10 steel holds a great edge.

Very sweet knife
Richard S. on Jan 4, 2020

This is a sweet knife it was my 1st Kizer and I was really impressed for the price. I do prefer either a flipper or an auto knife due to arthritis and this one has a really smooth action to it and it will be one of top 3 EDC's depending on the weight I want in my pocket.

great company.
Jake A. on Jan 8, 2018

I bought this in person at the store in Lehi, and I was very impressed with the customer service. The staff was patient and kind and didn't push to make a sale. This allowed me to end up with what has quickly become one of my favorite edc blades. It is thin, light, and very fun to flip.

Great value/Fun knife
fahad t. on Feb 1, 2017

Whats not to like about this knife? Great price, g-10 handles, although I wish they were textured they are quite smooth, excellent flipping action, fits perfectly in my large hands, flipper tab is nicely designed, recessed liners, pocket clip is functional, pocket clip fits like a glove with the way it mimics the knuckles.

This Sucker FLIPS!!
Jenna E. on Jul 7, 2016

Big attitude on this smaller ball bearing flipper. Buy it as a toy that you also can use. -Bird

That Action Though
Grady W. on Jan 5, 2018

If for anything, buy this knife for that action. Addictingly smooth for the price. The handle is very very small, but I do have big hands. I won’t carry this knife because of that, but I keep it for around the house and fidgeting. I’m not a fan of the overall feel or design of this one, but even still after handling one I had to have it for the action. That should speak volumes!

Awesome Knife!!!
Patrick W. on Nov 6, 2018

This is a great knife! I have several nice knives, but the Vanguard Dukes is the one I reach for day after day. It is with me more than all of my others combined. I think it is the best value in the knife universe. It flips open effortlessly -- better than any flipper I have ever tried (except other Kizers).

Can't find a flaw.
Esquire K. on Jan 16, 2018

I bought this for my wife as an EDC at the Blade HQ retail store after flipping it open once. It is so smooth! For a week after the purchase, I tried to find a flaw, but couldn't. My wife catches me time to time sneaking it from her purse to flip it. Did I mention how smooth it is? Will be getting another for myself.

Very Impressive for the Price Point
Bobby B. on Jul 20, 2016

Great little knife for the price, blade centering is great no play or wiggle at all and the blade came razor sharp out of the box. For my first Kizer knife I'm very impressed.

Fantastic flipper, great size
Josh M. on Jan 5, 2018

I purchased this knife probably about a month ago, and it's been my regular EDC blade ever since. The primary reasons for that are the size, and the action. This knife is a great size for EDC, as it takes up little room in your pocket, while still delivering a capable blade size. And now the action... Hoho the action. This thing flies open like a bat out of hell, and falls shut like it's a custom. Incredibly for a knife that's only 55-70 bucks. My only complaint with this knife is the edge: The vg-10 steel is just fine, as well as the shape of the blade. But the edge has a very slight, almost unnoticeable inward curve to it, making sharpening it with a flat stone difficult, and nearly impossible. It's not that big of a deal, but frankly? I just don't get it. It's so slight that it makes almost no visual difference, so I wish the would've made it just a straight edge. Overall, I'd rate this knife at 4/5 stars for the great action, good price, good quality, with the only downside being the curve in the blade. -J

beautiful knife
Will s. on Feb 3, 2020

great deployment crisp clean and fast the texture on the handles is very comfortable however the blade has a small curve that makes it a bit difficult to sharpen
