A kind of the Kizlyar Egerskiy Knife with decoration.
The handle is complemented with a steel front bolster, which, as well as the handle slabs, is neatly riveted to the shank. On both sides, the blade is patterned with ornament in the Russian style.
The Russian word “Egerskiy” means “made for huntsmen, foresters, or hunters”.
A huntsman’s knife is considered a solid cleaver, used for skinning big game, applying chopping blows, removing the tusks and separating antlers.
