    This Qama / Kindjal has a tempered and sharpened blade of high carbon steel. Two halves of wood are riveted to the thick blade tang to construct the grip, which is finished with two steel cone studs. Unlike other Qama on the market, this one has a slightly elongated grip to make it easier to hammer grip. It comes with a scabbard of stitched, robust leather with an integrated belt loop or integrated baldric strap.

    Hailing largely from the Caucasus reason, the Qama is a fighting blade vaguely similar in both size and form to the Roman Gladius. It would look right at home tucked into the front belt of a Caucasus or Persian tribesman, or in the belt of a Georgian or Russian, ready to be drawn in an instant and to quickly lash out at the foe, tip outstretched.

    The form of the Qama / Kindjal lends itself quite handily to thrusting attacks, which can be easily made fatal with such a sharply tapered tip. Though this is the natural focus of the weapon, the wide blade lends itself quite handily to close-in chops and hacks. This eminently practical self-defense weapon has been an iconic blade of the Caucasus hill and mountain peoples for many centuries, as well as having been a common dagger used by the Cossacks.

      Elegant is a word I would not use for this blade. This thing is definitely a thrust weapon. The edges are pretty close to 45⁰ if my eyes aren’t deceiving me. It will cut things, but if the box it came in is any indication on flesh, this will rip chunks out of a target or cause sharp-force trauma rather than slice. The edges on mine aren’t completely even, but it isn’t enough to complain about on such an affordable item. I also was beating up an empty water jug with it. Didn’t slice through, but I didn’t expect it to. It poked holes in cardboard and plastic just fine. That’s why I give it five stars. It fulfills it’s purpose. I can’t foresee this not thrusting through heavy clothing or leather.
