So is this the poor man's Chaves?
I try to stay away from painted blades. That's also the one thing I don't like about the Kizer Vanguard Begleiter, an otherwise near-perfect knife. (Well, I don't like that pocket clip that digs into your palm, either, but that's all that I don't like.)
Agreed 1000 times! I have a Benchmade Osborne with a black coated blade and it looks terrible because the coating scratches and wears off.
Is this the updated v2 version?
me too, hate coated black blades...

If this were anything but a coated blade, I would be in on this one... I like the length, the shape, the steel, the overall ‘heft’. If I had this particular knife, I would end up taking it apart and stripping the coating... so what’s the point.
That was my exact thought... Not into ‘black blades’. I’ll go as far as dark stonewash, but that’s it. I, too, shall pass on this one.
Looks like a fine knife, Kizer quality is never an issue. It can be had elsewhere however for $96.00. I'm also not too crazy about coated tactical blades. So I'm afraid I'm out on this one.

Besides, I've got the Kizer Megatherium enroute to me now. If I purchased another knife so soon, the wife thing will want another pair of shoes...or worse yet, a handbag!
