Orlan-2 is one of the representatives of the military-style knife line produced by Kizlyar LLC. In our opinion, the most beautiful, convenient and powerful representative in this category. The knife has passed certification and is not a cold weapon in Ukraine. This knife can be classified as a universal field knife.
An acceptable length and thickness of the blade of the original form with pronounced stiffening ribs, a comfortable handle and high-quality sheath, all this makes Orlan-2 your reliable assistant away from civilization. Running a little ahead, we can confidently say that this knife will be your worthy companion during short trips to nature and long trips.

bonfires very often use the so-called incendiary sticks. To do this, take a sharp knife and cut shavings on these sticks without finally separating it from the stick so that a curly whisk forms on it from one end. So, not every sharp knife does such a fine job. Usually the stick is cut in half with a knife at the beginning of work and the whisk does not work. To everyone’s surprise, Orlan-2 perfectly guided the whisk without cutting the stick itself..
Arrows we were of a low opinion about the black coating of the military series knives from LLC Kizlyar. But Orlan-2 once again surprised here, as well, there were no obvious violations of the integrity of the black coating. Unbelievable, but it is a fact.
