The tourist knife Varan from Kizlyar was presented to my friend, who urgently needed a knife in the household, and he asked me to assist in its acquisition. He himself is an avid fisherman and the requirements for his future knife put forward the following, as he himself said purely fishing
Tourist knife Varan from Kizlyar, description, review, test and experience of use.
According to him, a knife suitable for him should be.
1. Small in size and light so as not to strain.
2. Blade so that no longer than 11-12 cm, otherwise it is inconvenient to do something.
3. The blade is not thin, so as not to bend and vibrate when you cut, but not thick. Thick coloons do not like, they only chop wood, not cut.
4. Wooden hilt, because wood is more to your liking.
5. The blade is wide and leaf-shaped, like the tip of a spear, so it’s more convenient when cutting.
6. The sheath is still any, but not bulky.
7. That there was a fungus on the handle, like on Finnish.
I looked, figured, and since there wasn’t much choice with the leaf-shaped blade of knives, I took and gave him a Varan knife. All his requirements in this knife were, in principle, fully complied with..
I insisted on the flint. I really wanted to see it burn a piece of the cutting edge as on an F1 knife or not. I didn’t burn anything and I smiled maliciously, showed F1 mentally language.
Field test tourist knife Varan by product.
While the fire was burning and the water was warming up, we decided to have a bite to eat, we cut food for a snack with the same Varan. I listened to reviews about the knife and the convenience of working with him, and thought to myself that I was still able to please the person.
After a snack, it was the turn of carrots, onions, lard, potatoes and greens.
I didn’t expect much feats after a heap of chopped fish from a knife, but he managed quite well, at least he didn’t tear the food and they didn’t have to cut.
Everything was cut alternately on a wooden and plastic board, and by the end of the whole procedure, the Varan knife, without any editing on the sharpener, was still quite confidently and cheerfully finely chopping the carrot.
Then I was shown the first knife that my friend had for a long time. It turned out to be an ordinary and already very sharpened kitchen. When he stopped arranging it, a small knife from Cold Steel was bought to replace him, according to him, he really liked the shape of the knife (this is where the demand for the leaf blade came from), and the handle let us down, uncomfortable, thin and very nimble in wet hands. ..wanted larger and more oversized .. (c).
As a result, the Varan knife, according to a friend, proved to be a perfectly acceptable fishing kitchen knife and he liked it. And I thought, but there are no transcendent forms, technologies and materials in it, but maybe this is the whole point, the simpler the better?
