Depending on your knife collection, your occupation or level of knowledge in tactical knives, you never find a more comfortable in the hand blade than the Centurion from Kizlyar Supreme. Ironically the blade is most commonly the first thing mentioned by connoisseurs when talking about the features of a knife, but the first time you pull it from the sheath the shear shock of ease when you wrap your fingers around the ergonomic Kraton handle will leave you astonished.
Centurion is a powerful knife equally suitable for demands and unpredictability of tactical operations as well as tough requirements of experienced outdoorsmen. It combines a blade of our bestselling Legion model with an innovative handle from a combat knife series called Viluy that was developed by a Russian military knife expert Victor Lugovoi. Victor, an experienced technical and materials specialist and his team of special unit veterans have been working on Viluy for many years and conducted numerous tests to achieve perfection.
Whether you wrap your thumb around in a standard grip or place it on the back of the notched spine of the blade for slicing cuts, either grip makes cutting with the 5 3/4" AUS-8 blade feel almost effortless. The peculiar tip and blade geometry allows for easy penetration and support for the cutting edge. Fullers on both sides of the blade lighten the Centurion to a little over 8 oz (not including the sheath). The tang extends through the handle and is notched for multiple uses. If you use a reverse grip the it allows a firm thumb hold or use as a tactical hammer head, but more creative survivalists can think of more uses than us.
Numerous accessories that are sold separately include a MOLLE belt that can be used for a quieter and even more comfortable knife carry on a thigh, also there is a choice of a few MOLLE-compatible pouches that can be installed directly onto the sheaths to carry a multi-tool, folding knife, sharpener, flashlight, survival kit, etc.
