Bars – is the Russian name for leopard, a wild animal of the cat family.
The Kizlyar Bars is the knife which has got its name for a rapid and aggressive design.
To lock the blade in the open position the Bars uses a liner-lock. This construction completely eliminates the possibility of unauthorized folding of the blade during operation.
Strazh (Guard) is the knife designed and originally made under the order of the Russian FSB (former KGB). And it is still widely used – mostly as a back up weapon – by the undercover field officers.
The knife, being rather small, is extremely tough and practical.
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.
