Named after the trusty and northern dog, once you use the Malamute from Kizlyar Supreme this knife will be your best blade. It’s a simple, classic design with a sharp cutting edge. Like its namesake, the Malamute is built for power and perseverance. Made from German Niolox steel, 4 ½” long blade tapers from 119mm thickness from the back to the tip. The smooth Caucasus Walnut handle feels great in your hand and allows for multiple grips for cutting. The solid piece handle has a lanyard hole if you so wish to add one. Barely weighing 4 oz it hard to believe you holding anything at all. This knife is completed with a embossed black leather sheath. The sheath is designed to dangle from your belt for ease while squatting or climbing.
