Kizer knifes review  

We’re reviewing some of our gear that we use during our explorations. This is our first [GEAR] review – Kizer Vanguard Dorado + Vanguard Roach!

Urban exploration is a very expensive hobby. At first you don’t realize this but after some time you start to get into the stuff that urbex often hides from you. In our case that’s photography, hiking, camping, free climbing, survival training etc… We started our adventures with a Nokia N97 phone! Yup, our first photos were actually taken with a cell phone… After that, slowly but steadily, we got into photography and bought our first SLR camera. Then a tripod. And so it started! So after almost 7 years of wandering of the beaten path we collected and tried a TON of different equipment. That being said we decided to start a new branche of youtube videos labelled [GEAR].

We were approached by a company called “MM Blades”. They are the first retailers in Croatia for Kizer knifes. They kindly gave us three knifes to take with us on our explorations in Croatia. We only reviewed two of them – Vanguard Dorado and Vanguard Roach, the third one will be up soon! This is our first review video – we would really appreciate it if you take some time and tell us your thoughts about the video so we can keep improving our quality.



Kizer Vanguard Dorado

Matt Cucchiara collaborated with Kizer on the Dorado knife, and it’s now part of their high-performance/high-value Vanguard Series. It has a VG-10 steel blade set on a ball-bearing pivot for slick, efficient deployment with the flipper extension. This model has rounded black G-10 scales over nested, skeletonized stainless steel liners. It has an open-build with silver finished barrel spacers. Includes a tip-up carry pocket clip.

The Matt Degnan designed Roach knife is an exciting Kizer model that’s made its way to their Vanguard lineup. It has a wide spear point style VG-10 stainless steel blade with a gray titanium coating. The handle is contoured black G-10 with a blue G-10 backspacer and a stainless steel liner lock frame. The pocket clip is oriented for tip-up carry and marked with a Roach logo.
