Glukhar Kizlyar Knife decorated with brass hilt and pommel, and a deep handmade pattern on the blade.
“Glukhar” is the Russian name of a big forest bird – Wood Grouse (Blackcock).
“Glukhar” is also the largest of all the “bird flight” of Kizlyar tourist knives. Compared with its “relatives”, it has the widest blade.
‘Skif’ is the Russian name for the Scythians or Skiffs – the group of the Northern Black Sea tribes. In ancient times the Skiffs were known as nomadic stock-raising people, living in caravans, eating milk and meat, bearing severe warlike manners, gained the fame of invincible. In the Russian chronicles of the 17th the Skiffs were considered the forefathers of the medieval Russians.
The Kizlyar Skif is a greatest gift for every tourist or hunter. The reliable blade does not go blunt or rust. It easily cuts fish and meat with bones.
The universal shape of the blade is versatile enough for most tasks possible.
Akula-2 ia a good, strong knife which does not require sharpening. It does not shave, but cuts confidently. Easily cuts fish together with the spine.
The handle is square in section, is very convenient in the hand. At the end of the shank there is a hole for the lanyard.
It is not known whether it is possible to swim with the knife, but it can be left for a long time in snow and water without wiping afterwards. The pattern on the blade and the handle do not lose their attractivity and remain in their initial form.
The Kizlyar Bichak is an absolutely authentic knife designed in ancient times by two closely related Caucasian peoples – the Karachai and the Balkar.
Along with a gun, a sword and a dagger, a knife is a compulsory element of the traditional gear of the mountain-dweller.
On his belt, every adult man has a knife – the best field, hunting, traveling and household companion.
The Bichak is never used as weapon, its use for other than utility purposes is strictly blasphemed.
Kizlyar Stervets is a pronounced throwing knife. Its bold and aggressive appearance immediately attracts attention due to its brutal beauty.
Athletic design, black coating and excellent balance (the center of gravity is moved closer to the tip) creates the impression that the blade can hit the target in any throw, from any position.
Its double-edged blade is shaped like a spear. The steel frame is cord-wound near the handle. If necessary, the cord can be removed for replacement or cleaning.
“Taran” is a Russian word meaning “battering ram” – an ancient weapon used during a city siege.
The Taran Kizlyar Knife’s design refers to the “Finka” – the knife of Scandinavian ice fishermen who needed a tough, but narrow blade in order to easily stab the catch into its brain for quicker kill.
The concave sharpening of the blade with high razor-type slopes helps to achieve a special thinness and sharpness of the cut.
The fairly long blade of the knife is good for cutting up fish, and the Elastron-G handle increases the grip well.
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.
