DESCRIPTION

VFS Edge upgrade: 
 
This knife has had an edge upgrade by VFS custom sharpening services. The cutting edge has been re-profiled and hand resharpened to a ridiculously sharp mirror polished edge. The work was done with the use of Japanese water stones and the edge has been finished of with a 4600 grit stone (standard factory edge is about 1200 grit). 
 

 

The Setter is dedicated to European Setter Dogs like the English Spaniel and other Pointer Breeds of dogs. Hence, the knife features a beautiful portrait of an English Spaniel, hand engraved on the pommel of the knife. The pommel itself, along with the hilt/guard is made from pure, high quality silver. 

The blade of the knife is a classical spear-point design and features a false top edge, running almost the entire length of the blade. The blade has been manufactured from 6mm, hand forged Damascus steel and is razor sharp. 

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.
