knife Orlan-2. The knife in them sits tight, you can’t shake it out, it gets with some effort. Sewn very neatly, tight assembly, smooth seams. The thread is visible that it is impregnated with something, like tarry. The thoughtfulness of the design is also indicated by the fact that a triangular protrusion specially made under the curved shape of the handle of the knife is made on the strap.
flint. Have to strike the cutting edge, and what if it burns? I’ll be careful, the very tip. Lights up, great. But there were scorches on the knife. Interestingly, burned or not? No, everything was erased with a finger, polishing did not suffer, the cutting edge is whole, there are no obvious violations.

Arrow or Orlan-2. Something is in it such reliability, confidence and peace of mind .. here! Sometimes the width of the blade interferes, but I do not consider this a drawback, there are few such situations and they are rare. For all the time, the knife has never been sharpened. After everything described, and besides, there was work that I just didn’t take pictures of, the knife doesn’t cut paper, but it tears confidently.
It is a suitable knife for the role of a universal tourist. That’s just a manufacturer with wood impregnation would figure it out. Or maybe I have very high demands? Alternatively, you can make the same model with an elastron handle like Orlan-2. It is also incomprehensible with rust, because of what is it? Poor machining of the internal (hidden) sides of parts or something related to steel?
