SURVIVALIST is a new Kizlyar Supreme's full tang large knife with Walnut handle in AUS-8 stainless steel with Satin finish features a large, powerful blade with a thickness of around 5mm. The size and weight of the knife allow performing a large range of tasks.
The blade has a protective lower guard to shield the user from the very sharp edge and a bit of jimping on the spine for better control over the heavyweight blade. The upper and lower guards, as well as the end of the tang, are drilled and chamfered for fastening a lanyard as needed.
The new full tang blade features a satin and stonewash hybrid finish that looks exceptional in person. The beautiful walnut slab handle wood comes from the Caucasus Mountains in Russia that slope down to the edge of the Caspian Sea.
A camo MOLLE compatible sheath is included.
Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
After being stuck in Customs for several weeks it finally arrived!!
If you want a beautiful delicate knife you will be very disappointed, this knife is designed for a purpose. It's definitely heavy duty, well thought out and capable of doing pretty much any task you need a good well balanced blade for. The sheath / scabbard (what ever you wish to call it) is definitely more than "fit for purpose" being both Molle compatible and belt carried, heavy duty nylon with a sensible polypropylene liner.
There's 2 versions of the knife, a high grade hardened stainless blade and a high carbon steel version. Both will definitely last a lifetime and are lifetime warranted. Being made by Kyzlyar puts a well known and well respected pedigree on the knives, the manufacturer is trusted by the Russian military and police units (SOBR, OMOH etc) you know it is brutally functional and even President Putin is a customer.
Definitely more than satisfied with the knife and I'm looking forward to many years of service from this blade.
