SH-4 is a very fast and aggressive knife ideal for those who walk lot and thus need to minimise the dead weight on the belt. Still the knife has a tough full tang design, but its blade is 1/8 inches thinner, and this really reduces the weight. Though the knife does not have a heavy chopping blade, its shape is great for most tasks. And for special duties there is a large-profile gear grinding at the part where the butt is adjoined to the hilt.
The non-slip Elastron-G handle is molded to perfectly fit the hand, and provides a very decent finger guard.
The knife is quite comfortable in the hand. Its handle suits best to a man with a big palm. If to use gloves, the knife is perfectly controlled by both forward and reverse grips.
The knife is completed with one of the best models of leather sheath with an extra loop of the suspension, providing a considerable degree of freedom. The sheath can not only be fixed on the belt in usual way, but can be hanged handle down on the tactical load-bearing vest.
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 Kizlyar 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.
Each Kizlyar knife has an individual serial number which gives it a personal touch.
