NEW: The new Amigo Clip transforms the little neckers into great EDC (every day carry), concealed carry and emergency knives.
Amigo Series was specifically created for neck carrying. During the development of the series engineers of Kizlyar Supreme tried to incorporate the most important factors for an ideal neck knife.
First, of course, is security. That is why the unique sheath for Amigo was designed with extra precision and numerous tests were conducted to ensure the security of the sheath, after that we confidently approved the final version made of modern multilayered high durability and extra strength G10 material.
Second, is naturally, the usefulness of knife - unfortunately, many knives of similar type due to the constraints of the neck class of knives are often limited in their usefulness and do not allow to securely and reliably grip a knife to do any serious work, especially efficiently. With Amigo knives you can do a lot - they were designed to allow a reliable and comfortable grip, while the length and the shapes of the blades make doing any work with the knives a pleasure.
Third factor that we accounted for is the speed of extraction. We are sure that a perfect neck knife must be the first and quickest to come to aid its owner in any circumstances, be it a security belt cutting in an emergency or an urgent peeling of an apple. Amigo sheaths are supplied with a G10 lock that instantly releases and prepares the knife for action with a simple thumb pressing against the sheath or a pull to any side.
Fourth factor is the size and weight. Since no one wants to walk around with a kettlebell on their neck (although it may seem like a Russian thing to do since kettlebells were originally invented in our motherland) we tried to make the knife as lightweight and compact as possible without compromising its useful properties. We believe we have reached a dimplomatic compromise and the Amigos came out eager to work hard.
The fifth factor we considered is the high quality materials. Most important among the materials of a knife is, of course, steel. Kizlyar Supreme produces knives from different steels - Amigos have two options - AUS-8 and D2.
D2 is one of the most popular premium steels in the world because it offers unparalled edge-retention capabilities. This steel is considered to be the most wear-resistant in its class and holds the edge much better than the also premium ATS-34 steel. The combination of perfect wear-resistance, high hardness (61-63 Rockwell) and acceptable corrosion resistance make this steel a perfect choice for serious knives. D2 has relatively high chrome content and this is why it is often called "half-stainless", the steel is a good compromise between the constantly warring camps of high carbon and stainless steel fans. D2 is more resistant to corrosion than most high carbon steels, but still needs cleaning after use and oil care from time to time.
AUS-8 is considered to be a great knife steel in the quality middle price range featuring high corrosion resistance, high hardness (58-59 Rockwell) and capability of easy cutting edge recovery without the use of specialized equipment.
Handles of Amigo series have durable G10 of different colours - some users prefer bright handles - orange or blue, that could be better visible when dropped in a forest or at darker times of day, while some prefer traditional black handles so as not to attract unwanted attention.
The last, the sixth factor we also took seriously - is the the "coolness of owning" such a nice and stylish knife that makes others jealous. Since Amigo is relatively small and does not look aggressive, it does not put off people like most knives do, on the contrary it attracts positive attention. Amigo knives - are bright, fashionable and useful accessories of modern men perfectly suitable for Every-Day-Carry (EDC).
