The design of the knife is stable nostalgia for the Soviet Union, when folding knives were very popular and widely used in all spheres of life.
The NSK-3 is an elegant multifunctional all round pocket knife.
The blade is made of Russian high carbon rustproof steel. Heat treating and hardening to a fairly mild 55-57 HRC allows the steel to keep a fine edge, and at the same time be easy to sharpen.
Please, note that this is a classical folding knife with a simple tension lock mechanism fixing the blade in its place.
The lock is good for all cutting tasks, but be careful when applying pressure to the point, since the blade can spring closed.
The knife does not apply to melee weapons.
Kizlyar knives are manufactured in the Republic of Dagestan (Russian Federation) since 1990. At 1995 the manufacturer has received its export license and very soon obtained a world wide fame and strong reputation due to their highest quality and affordable prices.
The Kizlar knives are hand-made according to traditional technologies of medieval Caucasian armourers incorporated with modern techniques and metal working methods. That is why the Kizlyar knives are so popular among those appreciating outstanding knife qualities ensured by individual inspection of each item before it leaves the factory.
Though LLC “Production Company “Kizlyar” do not outsource their production to other countries (none of the knives have a “made in China” label) their prices remain reasonable and competitive. Besides, due to their premium quality and noble look, the Kizlyar knives are presented by the Prime Minister of Russia to war heroes and VIP guests of the Kremlin.
