The Kinzhal is the traditional dagger of the Caucasian equestrian tribes and the Cossacks. It was also popular among Russian riders. The prototype of this replica of a military Kinzhal was in useup into the mid-20th century in the Russian and Red Army. The curved, double-edged blade is perfect as hand-to-hand combat defensive weapon.
This practical replica with unsharpened blade is made of carbon steel with full tang. The handle is made of two parts of hardwood, which enclose the tang. The parrying guard is fitted in brass. It comes with a matching leather sheath with brass mounts.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
