The Irtysh is the most powerful and the longest river in Russia, the second extent in Asia and sixth in the world (3361 miles).
The Irtish-2 is a latest addition to the Kizlyar's range of military knives. It is designed both for heavy outdoor and combat tasks.
The spear-shape of the blade with fullers resembles a classic sword-bayonet. With its most efficient piercing capability and long cutting edge, it remains a very practical outdoor and utility knife.
The Kizlyar Baikal and Baikal-2 are almost identical high quality versatile knives. The only difference is that the Baikal-2 features a short finger guard. Hence, it does not come within the provisions of the Knife Restriction Laws in Russia and some other countries of the former USSR.
The standard Baikal features a 4-inch finger guard and is not considered a standard stocked item in the US markets.
