Each gift dirk of the masters of Zlatoust is a vivid example of handmade and inspired collective creativity. Weapon makers, artists and engravers worthily keep and develop the Zlatoust traditions of metal decoration. When creating each item, they combine talent, creativity and a high level of performance.
In its form, the Russian marine dirk was so elegant that the German Kaiser Wilhelm II, bypassing the formation of the crew of the Russian cruiser “Varyag”, was absolutely delighted with it, so he ordered dirks to be made for officers of his fleet according to the modified Russian model. Also, back in the 80s of the XIX century, the Japanese copied the Russian dirk, and made it look like a small samurai sword.
