Disputes about what kind of knife is better, do not subside until now. Yet there are several categories of knives, which are knocked out in the first rows of the general list …
– a legend transmitted from one generation to another. This knife is extremely secret, because it was in service with the elite groups of Soviet saboteurs. Despite the extreme secrecy associated with this knife, about half of the people who knew about him held it in their hands, and the other half even owned it, but lost it in due time.
Inside the knife contains combat metal mercury, which allows the combat saboteur to achieve several goals at once.
- First, mercury balances a blade in flight, allowing you to confidently hit a target at any distance.
- Secondly, mercury, penetrating into the body of the enemy, causes additional damage to enemy organs, causing severe poisoning.
- Thirdly, in a hopeless situation, a combat saboteur may commit suicide by taking mercury.
- Fourth, the mercury knife is an indispensable tool in a situation where medical care is understandably unavailable.
Gun Steel Knife
This is explained by the fact that the process of making a knife from this steel is extremely laborious and laborious, and the secret to this day is considered lost.
The skill of obtaining the famous steel weapon possess only Soviet ensigns. Passing this secret from generation to generation, they have reached incredible heights. Ancient records and records of penalties allow us to slightly open the veil of this ancient mysterious ritual.
A month before the blade was made, a Soviet ensign had to start preparing the spirit and body in order to achieve inner concentration, harmony and unity with the outside world and the gods. He had to adhere to strict fasting, completely giving up alcohol, and he tempered the spirit and will of the warrior, reading the Charters all day long and penetrating the wisdom of the ages.
At the end of the month, on a moonless night, a Soviet warrant officer penetrated into a tank fleet and hacked a gun in a T-72 tank, the source of precious weapon steel. For three days and three nights, he heated this gun and worked it, achieving homogeneity of the material. As a result, a unique composite was obtained, with a lining, steel that was never blunt and capable of piercing the rail through. Along.
Unfortunately, with the disappearance of a caste of Soviet ensigns, it has sunk into oblivion and an exact recipe for making this steel. Many scientists tried to reproduce it, but in vain – and only those who saved such a knife can be justly proud of it.
As the name implies, this is a very special knife, for the possession of which requires a person with a well-thought out tactical thinking. To recognize this tactical knife is very difficult. Nowadays, store shelves are crammed with consumer goods, all kinds of “CRKT”, “Mcusta”, “Ka-Bar”, etc., but an experienced person passes by them.
A sure sign of this tactical knife – the knife should be black. If only his handle is black, this is another reason to doubt, but if he is completely black, take it without hesitation! It is real Tactical knife! Proving its effectiveness and quality is absolutely unnecessary – everything is clear from the name.
There are also rumors about the existence of a separate family of strategic knives, a higher level of tactical knives, but few can boast of having seen them.
There is an opinion that any knife with which a sausage was cut on a strategic map can be called a strategic knife, but it is not yet possible to verify the truth of this opinion.
Japanese Steel Knife
The source of knowledge about the famous Japanese steel is also the ancient parables that have come down to us, allowing us to appreciate the great skill of Japanese masters. Here is one of them:
In ancient times, two masters in all of Japan had no equal in the manufacture of swords – Muramas and Masamune. Both of them made excellent blades, better than which he had not seen the light, but over the years, neither of them could prove his superiority over his rival.
Then, seeing how sad his masters were, the Japanese emperor ordered to check who among them had achieved greater perfection. To do this, each master had to forge a sword and stick it into the mouth of the stream.
The masters carried out the orders of their emperor with all care. And when both swords were ready and they were thrust into the stream, the crowd saw all the leaves floating along the stream that touched Muramas’s sword — they were cut into two parts, and the leaves of Masamune were swallowed unharmed.
The grieved Master Masamune sighed, but Master Muramas only patted him on the shoulder, saying:
What, Sergeyitch, again from the spring from the “Moskvich” bungled? I told you, it was necessary to start from Japanese steel …
Knife from a secret alloy
We are talking about experimental steel from a closed Soviet scientific research institute, which, thanks to special processing and interspersing of secret elements from the classified section of the periodic table, was unmatched in terms of strength and impact resistance.
The legend of the appearance of this knife is known to many. In one closed Soviet scientific research institute the usual Soviet engineer worked. Once, out of curiosity, he took a piece of steel, from which they did all sorts of secret things at the research institute, and with a secret cutter cut a knife out of it.
Since the knife for all dominant genes turned out to be secret too, the engineer secretly took his creation home and only there saw its amazing properties – the knife could cut nails, bricks, concrete blocks – and all this without much rubbing and losing sharpness!
The level of secrecy that prevailed in the USSR distorted this story – at least in every city and almost every yard they know this outstanding engineer, every third specialist in knives is his neighbor, and every second one even turns the legendary knife in his hands.
After the disappearance of the USSR, the unique knife was also lost. Rumor has it that the owner sold it in the United States as a souvenir or that it was transferred to the “new Russian” in the troubled years of the 90s, but there is also a version that with the signing of the contract in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, the secret elements that gave the knife unprecedented qualities immediately lost all its beneficial properties.
Knife from the “zone”
If you ask the real expert, and especially bring him a glass, after some time he admits that the best knives of all are those for which the master from the “zone” had a hand.
Only on the territory of the “zone” from time immemorial all the conditions were created so that craftsmen could produce truly high-quality knives. The administration for a long time and painstakingly selected the appropriate mode, imported the best steel from all available in the world into the territory, provided prisoners with special machines. Only at the “zone” can a master work on a single knife for years, honing it and gradually bringing it to perfection.
Knives made on the “zone” are not bought and not sold, they are kept inaccessible to prying eyes, because the code of the “zone” requires. However, from time to time in some way one of these knives falls into the hands of an ordinary person.
In addition to the perfection of forms, the knife, made on the “zone”, has an important advantage over other knives – its sharpness does not know its equal, and he never dulls.
