The knife is named after the mountaineous river Terek, flowing through the Northern Caucasus into the Caspian Sea.
A utility knife of traditional shape, mainly suited for processing not big game animals, preparing food and dealing with various campsite tasks.
The blade possesses a wide convergence angle, reducing the risk of skin biting. It is curved downwards in respect to the handle, so successfully copes with removing the skin, allowing you to make smooth and accurate movements.
The straight razor sharpened hollow ground blade is mirror polished to a highly reflective lustre.
The handle slabs, made of resin impregnated Circassian walnut, are firmly riveted to the full tang of the knife.
The bolsters and fittings of bright polished stainless steel present the fit and finish of a finely crafted traditional knife.
There are no chinks between the blade and the bolsters, where dirt and grease difficult to remove could bunch. To attach a lanyard to handle there is a hole made out of a stainless steel tube.
The immersion type sheath is made of thick leather. The handle halfly immersed in the sheath and secured by friction.
The knife does not refer to melee weapons and has the confirming certificate.
Terek-2, with its marvelous appearance, stands out from the crowd of knives. By design, the knife is close to the Sobol Kizlyar model.
The powerful silhouette, plated design handles, fat butt suggest willingness to work hard.
The wide blade is finely polished. Due to its width, it can be used as a small shovel, for example, when preparing a fire place.
A very massive steel guard gives the knife a reliable and confident look.
The handle is slightly curved and gradually increases in thickness and width toward the rear. The lanyard hole and distinct finger hollows facilitate the extraction of the knife from the sheath. Terek-2 fits the hand at any grip. The well-fitted slabs of Circassian walnut are firmly riveted to the shank.
In practice, the throwing properties of the knife are pleasantly surprising. Due to the large weight it pretty deep, up to1 inch, penetrates into a tree.
The knife comes with a black sheath made of thick (about 5/32 inch) genuine leather. Its wide inlet allows putting the knife to the touch, knowing that you will not miss. The knife is held tightly, without accidental falling out, and is removed with a slight effort. The sheath is sewn very carefully – dense assembly, flat seams. The strap provides a triangular protrusion specifically designed for the curved handle of the knife.
Kizlyar Terek-2 is universal tourist knife. It provides a special feeling of security, confidence and serenity.
