KUV3508A1: Vanguard V3508A1 Matthew Christensen Mini Criticaly

The critically acclaimed Christensen Knifeworks designed Critical folder gets a mini version! This flipper knife features a 3″ reverse tanto Wharncliffe blade made of CPM-3V tool steel with a thick swedge and ample jimping and an ergonomic carbon fiber liner lock handle with a red pivot accent. The black coated 3V blade is razor-sharp and has outstanding toughness and edge retention. The rounded jimping on the blade, if you look carefully, you can see that they got a little chamfering so that you can get comfortable feelings when holding this knife. The Critical is one of Christensen’s best designs and we’re glad to see a more carriable, more affordable Vanguard version from Kizer Cutlery.
