The souvenir “Khan” bebut in its shape and characteristics corresponds to the “combat” prototype dagger. A slightly curved blade of medium length, pointed on both sides, made it easy to strike and chop. You can hold a bebop with various grip: direct or reverse. The difference between a souvenir product is a less sharpening of the blade and rich decoration. From weapons, bebut turned into a work of art.
But before becoming a finished product, the steel blade went through the process of hardening and grinding. Metal is polished to a mirror finish. The scabbard made of metal and the symmetrical curly hilt were plated with precious metals (24K gold). The blackening and engraving depicting an oriental floral ornament gave the item a noble and luxurious appearance that matches the name of the dagger. Literally, “Khan” means “Ruler”, worthy of the very best.
The finishing touch to the product design is provided by many Swarovski jewelry stones of various shades and sizes.
The item is made in the traditional technique of Zlatoust metal engraving. For the second century in a row, the Zlatoust metal engraving is an original and rare kind of Russian craft. It was born at the beginning of the 19th century as a way of decorating author’s edged weapons made at the Armory founded by decree of Tsar Alexander I.
