The SH-4 Kizlyar Knife combines the best features of combat, utility, hunting and survival knives.
Designed for Russian paratroopers, the knife is lighter than other combat knives, and its blade has been extra heat treated for maximum strength and outstanding edge keeping qualities.
The Kizlyar Anchar and Varan knife series are remarkable for an unusual form of the blade. They feature a common cosy and ergonomic handle with barrel-shaped middle part.
The slabs of the handle are made of Caucasian walnut and fixed with five rivets of stainless steel.
The pommel features a lanyard hole made as a flared stainless steel tube.
The shape of the Anchar’s blade is the scimitar (yatagan) type, ie it resembles a short sword with a curved blade that broadens towards the point.
