Rearmament of any army is an incredibly costly, delicate and time-consuming business, involving a wide variety of trifles, even such as knives for soldiers. However, any knowledgeable and understanding person will say that a combat knife is not a trifle at all. Now we will talk about the NB-2 6x9 "Ratnik", which replaced the old instruments.
Meet the combat knife NB-2 6x9 "Warrior", which is part of a set of equipment of the same name for Russian soldiers. Every man who did military service had to hold in his hands a Soviet bayonet-knife for a Kalashnikov assault rifle. More than one joke can be made about the shortcomings of this tool. The fragility of its metal makes one think that it is made of tin can. Modern realities forced military designers to seriously rethink approaches to the performance characteristics of combat knives for soldiers. The fruit of their labor was 6X9.
The multifunctional knife "Ratnik", according to GOST, is a melee weapon of increased strength for close combat, throwing at a target or solving other tactical, household, sanitary tasks. First of all, the knife, according to Novate.ru, was designed as a tool for destroying enemy manpower and neutralizing guard dogs. It can be used to damage enemy equipment, smash tempered glass, bandage the wounded, cut wire and solve many other smaller tasks.
The NB-2 6x9 package includes the "Ratnik" knife itself, a scabbard with pliers and a diamond bar for sharpening the blade, a carrying case, a safety cord, a strap for wearing on the leg. It is produced in two modifications: a combat knife directly and a bayonet-knife with a mount for the machine gun barrel.
The warrior knife can withstand a load of up to 100 kg applied to the middle of the blade. The blade is 281 mm long and 5 mm thick. Dimensions with scabbard - 330x70x35 mm. The blade has an anti-reflective coating. For the production of the knife, anti-corrosion steel 95X18 is used, which is distinguished by high strength and easy sharpening.
