"Gribnoi" translates as Mushroom. It might seem odd to some why a beautiful handmade hunting knife is called a "Mushroom" and to understand this, you really need to learn an important fact about the Russian / northern European culture. 

Mushroom picking/collecting is one of the most popular leasure activities in Russia, Ukraine and most other Eastern European countries and can bee seen just as popular as fishing and hunting in other parts of the world. It is a great family activity and the knowledge and skills are passed on from generation to generation. Therefore, it is not uncommon in these regions for items to have a mushroom related theme. 

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. 

The knife has a 5mm thick semi drop point blade, which is ideal hunting knife that can take on pretty much any task. The long handle provides a very comfortable and secure grip, while the Karelian Birch has that wonderful warm fill, that makes the knife a pleasure to behold. 

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.

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.
