The eagerly awaited Microtech Vector auto knives showed up today. They are in stock and ready to ship. The Vector features the same handle as the Kestrel and is also a side open automatic. The difference lies in the blade. The Vector has a modified tanto blade with a curved edge while the Kestrel has a Wharncliffe style blade. These knives open hard and fast and the lock up is perfect. When deployed there is no detectable movement in the blade. The blade comes with or without serrations and several different finishes including a DLC black coat, a stain finish, or a stonewash finish. This is a great mid sized automatic knife that is built for action and heavy use.
