The full slab tang is equip with real wood scales making this impressive short sword or long dagger measure nearly 2 feet in length. Weighing in at only 1 lb. 6 oz. made this kindjal a very easy to wield, effective piece of weaponry. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts this piece also Include a scabbard.
The origins of the Cossacks has had many theories and has been under heavy debate for centuries but one thing that can be agreed upon by modern scholars is these peoples of the prairies and woods who always needed "a live frontier" they were very tough fighters. The Cossacks would all serve the military for a mandatory 20 years. Cossacks were highly admired for their equestrian skills by the early Russian military. Many were hired as cavalry by Russian and Ukrainian warlords as well as employed as personal body guards.

"Too loose in the sheath, but a good value for the money." - Simon (4/5)
"The product provides good value for the price point. " - Scott (4/5)
"Again the Windlass steel seems very good and I sharpened this one myself with a belt sander and finished the sharpening by hand and got a very sharp paper cutting edge. The scabbard was a bit loose so I cut and glued a thin sliver of wood on the inside of the scabbard lip and now it retains the blade well. The historical Russian design is surprisingly fast and quick and the negative concave edge cut into the cardboard shipping box easily even before my doing any sharpening, the unsharpened convex edge only bounced of the cardboard box: This was surprising and may explain why this type of Kindjal had a double edged blade. One very small issue was a hairline crack in the wood handle near the front of the handle nearest to the blade that I noticed later, but not weakening the handle structurally, a little super glue and sanding fixed that issue." - Jean (4/5)
