The Gurza is named after a specific type of Viper that is native to the Caucasus region. The detailed work on the hilt and pommel of this knife really paints a beautiful picture of this deadly creature. The pommel itself, along with the hilt/guard is made and carved from high quality silver. The handle is made from very dark African ebony wood and it is carved in a checkerd pattern with a silver nail/stud in each cross section. This provides excellent grip, but also creates and amazing feel. 

The blade of the knife has a very aggressive spear-point design with a blood groove running running through the center. The top edge of the blade is not sharpened, however it narrows to about 0.7 mm, hence can easily be sharpened if need be. These aggressive features really complement the overall theme of the knife's design. The blade has been manufactured from 6 mm, hand forged Damascus steel with twisted star pattern.  

 

Damascus steel has a long and mysterious history. Spawning many myths and legends about its apparently magical abilities (edge holding) and properties (flexibility and strength). Several years ago Kizlyar Knives started processing their own Damascus steel using age old forging and blacksmithing techniques to create a line of Damascus knives that are second to none.

This knife has been beautifully designed and made at the St Petersburg based Nord Crown factory, which specializes in custom made knives and have made some of the most exclusive and expensive knives for some very exclusive clients. They include Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, The King of Jordon and many other rich and famous people. 

Note: The Damascus steel used in Kizlyar Knives is not stainless like in characteristic due to its very high Carbon content, it will corrode if it is not cared for properly. We recommend that you keep the blade clean and oiled after use as you should with any carbon steel blade.
