Microtech Vector

May 8, 2000
Does anyone have any info? I just bought one andlove it. Will it make a good carry knife?
Congratulations on your new Vector!

The original design was about 4" blade and perhaps lacs of utilitarian features but its main purpose was to be an edged weapon.

You can open envelopes, prune mushrooms, cut bagels in half (really good at it) but basically the hawkbill blade always drag and catch the material for more deep cuts and the reinforced tanto point will give the knife added bonus on the piercing field.

In reverse grip this knife really shines and in saber grip the point is always in a cutting position.

I hope this help!

I'm not sure if it was a typo or not, but my regular knife dealer has this one marked $100 higher than the Kestrel, around $280 altogether. Is this about what you paid for it? I like the looks of it, but right off I don't really understand why it is that much more expensive. Is there a different mechanism involved?

The Vector is a limited run that's why the price difference.

The Kestrel is a regular run
