For awhile now I have been collecting knives; mostly from the United States as that is my home. I have also bought and used some Chinese / Pakistan /
Japanese knives as well; some with great success, some not so much.
I just recently ran into a man that had 2 knives for sale. One was a Condor that I was familiar with; (Pics later on) and one was a Russian knife I
had never heard of. Kizylar.
I immediately fell in love with the design, the comfort and the overall look of this little knife.
Super comfortable, nice size at 7.75in overall and a 3.5in blade. The thickness is not listed but I believe it too be 3/16in, just right for that size
The steel is D2 Tool Steel which is extremely tough steel. You can also get it in Stainless. The blade has what they list as a "Black Titanium"
coating and very attractive.
Nicely done Micarta Scales and a very well done Kydex, adjustable sheath finish this little baby off....
Retail is just under $100 USD
Along with the Kizylar he had a Condor...
I already own several Condor knives but not this one. (The deal was for both)
This is the "Bushlore" with Micarta scales. Nice little knife with their usual 1075 steel.
Here it is beside my Condor "Rodan"
I really appreciate all the people out there that make handmade knives, I really do. I even own a few. However when I can get 2 knives of this quality
for $50 USD!!!!!!! Well.........
Check out the Kizylar website located HERE
Condor Knives website is HERE
I plan on buying more... (Although I am approaching 400 knives and the wife is a little suspicious of where my money is going.. LMAO )
