Results of the Ryback-2 Kizlyar Knife testing based on customer reviews.
“Whatever may be said, but the name given to any subject affects its perception –“how do you call a boat, so she will float.” Once the knife is called Ryback (Fisherman), I won’t hunt for the mammoth with it, I, and won’t cut roofing material either. But I will go on a fishing trip. Tacking the size of the knife – on a deep-sea fishing, there is a bigger fish.”
“The knife is very beautiful and suits well as a gift – for those who are working with a knife (it’s not a souvenir!).
The thickness of the cutting edge: at the heel (ricasso) – 0.026 in; in the middle of the arc-shaped rise to the tip – 0.023 in. The handle slabs are flawlessly adjusted to the shank. The rivets heads are set very carefully. The handle is polished to a mirror shine. After contact with water the sheen turned into matt. Though the tactile sensation did not changed, the wood did not become rough.
The handle is very ergonomic and it self-centers as compressing in the palm.
Shaving quality – shaves with ease, no irritation.”
“Finally I got to fish. It is very convenient to cut the fish into pieces, the blade’s length helps. The bones were cut tightly – sometimes I pressed the butt with the left hand.
Once out on the nature I tried to cut the cane for the tent bedding. The result is excellent. Long and wide blade allows you to mow almost without looking.”
Conclusion: “The kitchen, including field, is the hobbyhorse of the knife. To cut a salad on a cutting board is just fun, but it is not very comfortable to peel potatoes with it.
Thick branches up to two fingers are cut / chopped pretty well. To cut pegs for fire, spinning, and the like is easy. But chopping wood is not for the “fisherman”.

“Bekas” is the Russian name for the snipe, a wading bird of marshes and wet meadows, with brown camouflaged plumage, a long straight bill, and typically a drumming display flight.
The concave sharpening of the blade helps to achieve a particular fineness and sharpness of the cutting edge. The both sides of the blade perform a thematic “tattoo” in the Russian style.
