At the suggestion of LLC Kizlyar Ukraine, we tested and tested in the field the tourist and throwing knife Shervets produced by LLC Kizlyar.
Tourist and throwing knife Bastard from Kizlyar, description, review, test and experience of use.
General data of the knife Bastard from the manufacturer’s website / real.

Blade thickness: 5.4 / 4.6 mm, 0.8 mm less than stated.
Blade shape: symmetrical, with expansion in the middle part / corresponds.
Blade material: corrosion-resistant steel 50X14MF or 65X13 or imported analogue / not indicated on the knife.
Sharpening: concave / consistent.
Handle: metal shank wrapped in nylon cord / matching.
Design: all-metal blade, the handle is formed by winding the cord on the shank / corresponds.
Scabbard: genuine leather sheath / conform.
Note: not applicable to melee weapons / help available.
The main specialization of the knife is clearly visible in its general appearance and shape of the blade. It is pronounced propellant, as an option, it can probably be used as the tip of a spear or harpoon, and that is very unlikely, but the possibility still remains as a household, but this small handle, only 7 centimeters and the very shape of this knife.
The arrow or Piranha is absent, which again in my opinion confirms the throwing orientation of the knife.
Orlan-2 and Piranha, but stronger than on the Arrow.
birch trees, that’s fine. He struck the flint, lit a fire. The cutting edge and blade are not affected. I cut three branches, or rather I tried to cut, it did not work, I took another knife. He tore the fabric and cut the rope. It seems nothing happened. I cut a plastic bottle and dig holes in the cork. The cut is heavy and ragged, the pull to the side is significant, picks well.
In general, my idea failed miserably. In the future, Stervets did not participate in the process of work, except that he dug three holes in the ground under the supports of the tripod, as his almost complete inability to fulfill most of them became apparent, and I did not want to do something with torment, and time was running out, it should soon be getting dark.
General conclusions after the test of the tourist and throwing knife Sherbets production LLC Kizlyar.
The conclusion is simple and clear to me. A good knife with a narrow throwing specialization is practically useless for some sort of household work. If necessary, execute them, but with great inconvenience and loss of time for the user. As a proposal, the manufacturer can produce not one such knife, but a line of three knives of the same shape, this 212 mm, another 230 mm long, and 250 mm long. It will be possible to throw at longer distances than this.
