My favorite knife so far!! The shape, the blade, the handle, everything about this knife is awesome.
I have to say that this is my first Damascus steel knife and also my first Russian-made knife, to be precise this knife was made in Zlatoust, Russia.
A blade made of ZLADINOX ZDI-1016 Damascus steel in “twist” pattern is what caught my eye at the 2016 Knife Show in Milano, Italy. Beautiful handles and a black leather sheath completed the package. This is my first leather shealth as well. I am really liking this dangler style of carrying knives, very convenient when you are outdoors.
Honestly I don’t really think this knife will be heavily used, since it is my favorite of my collection. If I can manage to get another one then I will for sure try some crazy stuff with it.
You can check AIR Zlatout's Instragram for more cool knives.
Until then, enjoy the photographs!
