Osetr (Sturgeon in English) is a great versatile throwing knife for handle-grip or blade-grip throwing. At 9 3/8” and 8.5 oz the Osetr demands an experienced throwers hand. The smooth lines and being very appealing to the eye doesn’t make the Osetr your typical looking throwing knife. The easy feel in the hand whether by the handle or the blade belies the control and focus required to throw it.
The Osetr is a legendary knife used in many throwing competitions.
Kizlyar Supreme Throwing Knives were developed and improved to their highest potential over the years by the fathers of the Russian knife throwing school, the most prominent is still grandmaster V. S. Kovrov, who is their original designer. Nothing is insignificant here: grip features and control of the knife, weight, surface finish, heat-treatment, proportions, aerodynamical properties - all these make a genuine throwing knife different from a standard knife. Professional throwing knives do not have thin parts or edges like standard knives have because they break very fast. In addition to this, the throwing knives are hardened at around 42-45 HRC to guarantee they will not break after years of throwing.
