First things first, I had to ask what was up with the name “Cholera?” Normally you’d want to avoid something like cholera, right? It turns out that this catchy bug is one of many pathogens that can live in the guts of a vulture (the company’s “mascot”). President and Chief Designer of Vulture, William Egbert Jr., spent years of R&D coming up with this wicked blade design, and he says a nasty knife name was just what he wanted. Fair enough.
