Kizlyar Piranya (piranha) had originally been a made-to-order work of authorship, and only later it was launched into mass production.
The tip of the blade is almost at its centerline, which is evidenced by its excellent penetrating capability.
For the obvious reasons, the manufacturer refers Piranya to the category of cutting and skinning knives, though depending on the application, it can be called a reserve, auxiliary, self-defense or concealed carry knife.
If you, above all, appreciate small volume and light weight, then this knife will completely replace your basic one without any compromise in functionality.
The handle formed by winding of the para-cord around the shank can deliver some discomfort during long power load, but the estimated volume of such works for the knife is not so much. The para-cord absorbs and dampens the angles of the handle.
Under the cord there are hidden holes cut to facilitate the blade. There is no browning around the holes, probably due to the nature of the processing. The handle lies comfortably in the palm in any grip. The upper and lower stops are well made in the right places.
Since hunters and fishermen appreciate this knife, though the para-cord handle can easily absorb any moisture, the smell of fish, dirt and grease, be slippery and sticky of blood, Kizlyar Piranya fits perfectly for hiking with a multi-day itinerary, where low weight and compactness play a major role. In any case, should the need arise, the para-cord can always be washed and dried at rest in the evening around the campfire. The process of unwinding and rewinding is very simple and requires no special skills.
