“Korshun” is the Russian name for the Black Kite, the most demonic of all the birds of prey. In Slavic symbolism it carries an inglorious death to the enemy.
The blade of the Korshun-2 Kizlyar Knife is a replica of the most visible, extreme feathers on the kite’s wing, which it puts digiform during the flight.
The Korshun-2 is one of the most popular tactical knives of Kizlyar’s “duo-form milled series” military knives.
“Strannik” is a Russian notion close to “rover” – a person who spends their time wandering.
The Kizlyar Strannik is classic Scandinavian Puukko knife.
By design, it is a descendant of the sapper knife produced for special units of the Red Army, the NKVD-KGB, SMERSH (military intelligence during WWII).
In contrast to the combat model, the sapper has no guard. This peculiarity was immediately appreciated in the Military Intelligence, the Airborne Forces and the Navy as the knife is very convenient in in landing or concealed crawling movement.
