The shape of its blade is a mixture of a small utility knife and a double-edge dagger with serration on the spine edge.
The slightly oversized guard provides comfortable protection and safe grip.

The Taran Kizlyar Knife’s design refers to the “Finka” – the knife of Scandinavian ice fishermen who needed a tough, but narrow blade in order to easily stab the catch into its brain for quicker kill.
The concave sharpening of the blade with high razor-type slopes helps to achieve a special thinness and sharpness of the cut.
The fairly long blade of the knife is good for cutting up fish, and the Elastron-G handle increases the grip well.
