The knife is named after one of the World’s largest rivers, which lies in the Far East of Russia creating a natural borderline between Russian Federation and China.
The knife features an unassuming drop-point design, but is built like a real tank. Therefore, Amur-2 is a usable super-sharp utility knife able to serve in any situation. Be it an ordinary camp task or a matter of life and death. It is also suitable for military tactical use.
The finger guard of the knife provides excellent protection from accidental cuts in case that it is used heavily.
Kizlyar Amur-2 refers to the knives of the “river” series, which have well proven themselves among our customers thanks to a new functional design and advanced production technology.
The specifications and photos posted on the manufacturer’s sites do not convey the actual dimensions of the Amur. The knife is really big and heavy. Its length is 10 5/8 inches (270 mm), a little less than 6 inches (150 mm) of which is the 3/16 inch (4.2 mm) thick blade. This particular copy is made of Z60 steel performing excellent viscosity and corrosion resistance.
The knife handle is composite: its inner part is made of plastic, and the outer of Elastron. The handle is attached via push-through installation in an unusual way.
The shank of the blade corresponding to the 2/3 of the length of the handle is pulled together with the pommel via nut and screw.
The guard and the butt, in their turn, are independent elements made of steel, the processing of which raises no objections, in spite of the complex shape.
Despite its impressive weight, the knife is perfectly balanced: the gravity center is located just below the index finger. This balance is, inter alia, achieved by good design. The Elastron handle is very comfortable. For the whole period of sales, while surveying a lot of customers, we have not met even a single person who would not like the handle. The knife is confidently held by most grips, even with wet hands. The wide rugged guard secures the palm during any power operation.
Despite the size, it’s hard not to appreciate the excellent precision of the knife. It’s not a scalpel, but 1/32 inch is a very decent rate. Concave slopes coming from the middle of the blade, combined with delicate precision, provide the perfect cut. The knife can easily cope with any kitchen work.
To evaluate the strength of the Amur, it was decided to throw it in the stand. As you know, when throwing, any knife feels a largest load which is not comparable to the one arising in the normal course of testing.
The shots were made from various distances and in various complex ways. Due to its weight, good balance and structure the knife flew and stoke perfectly well. There were made more than 100 throwing cycles, including unsuccessful, and the knife has not received any visible damage. Moreover, it did not lose stiffness and monolith structure.
In a word, it is a great pleasure to use the Amur-2, or just twist it in the hands. We strongly recommend to get it know to everyone who has not hold a knife of the Kizlyar “river” series yet.
The novel “river” series of legendary Kizlyar knives feature an unrivalled hidden full tang design, and, at the same time, its durable Elastron-G handle is artfully molded over the tang pressing the guard firmly into its place. In order to ensure that the handle will not loose, there is an additional steel pommel bolted into the bottom of the tang, which acts as a retainer and creates a hard curved surface for breaking glass, ice etc.
Convenient submersible sheath made of very thick leather has two types of attaching to the belt – a rigid one and one on the free suspension.
The knife does not apply to melee weapons and has the confirming certificate.
