A kindjal is the Caucasian dagger that was used by the ranks of the Russian Army until the middle of the 20th century. The slightly curved, double-edged blade of our kindjal dagger has two fullers that run almost three-quarters of the length of the blade. Lightweight and with a comfortable grip, this kindjal dagger is extremely manageable. The grip and pommel are made of hardwood plates riveted to the full tang of the blade. That gives this kindjal dagger excellent stability and very good balance.
It includes a wooden scabbard covered in leather with a carrier ring, a mount and a chape.

Price QualityNikitin OlegVery well made dagger. At first glance resembles a short saber, is light enough and comfortable. The Kindjal did come not sharpened. Despite the thin blade, he was strong enough had to sharpen, it was surprisingly difficult despite the relatively thin blade steel is very well tempered. In General, the product very much liked.
Price QualityCHRISAs always from windlass, a very nice piece, well made and presented.
My only observation is that in my case I purchased 2 to have a crossed-swords effect and was presented with the problem of two largish brass nuts on one side of the hilt and nothing on the other making it difficult for one of the pair to lie flat against my wall. Not insurmountable but be aware if you should need a pair yourself.
Not a criticism , merely a thought.
