The type of pattern-welded steel is the called “Damascus steel”. Originally used in middle eastern sword making, the method has been lost since about the 16th century. But in 1973 bladesmith William F. Moran unveiled his “Damascus knives” at the Knifemakers’ Guild Show. Ever since then modern pattern-welded steel blades have been called “Damascus knives”...

People have postulated that this knife gets its name because it's what you would want going into the apocalypse. I think an equally valid view is that this is the kind of fierce beast one would expect to see during the end times. Stout, sharp and really amazing attention to detail. This thing is a beast for sure.
Beautiful classic design and build. This knife came sharp, but with a little honing and stropping, it is scary wicked sharp. I can see making this an every day carry!
The convair is a pretty cool tactical folder , handle bevels and blade geometry give this knife easy to hold and use . However ,i found the lock up on the liner lock did not engage enough to gjve full confidence jn some critical uses . All in all though it is a very nice design .
Perfect for both heavy duty and precision bushcraft.
An excellent quality and functionality all purpose knife. Love it! Nice job!
It's a great EDC option in terms of size. Yet it feels bigger than it is in hand. The blade does everything you can throw at it and excels at slicing and cutting tasks. Fit and finish are what you expect from TRC. Flawless!
Have to say dealing with these gentlemen was a pleasure.I ordered a TRC Classic Freedom and it arrived in two days. Fit and finish impeccable, the sales and service just as good. A pleasure doing business with Russian Knives, looking forward to my next purchase. Thanks again!
Before I pulled the trigger I compared TRC South Pole knife with other brands. I found with the money TRC Knife is best choice for me. Hold the knife in hand I can feel the quality and it is very sharp right out of the box. I will buy another TRC knife with longer blade.
Very good quality! Top customer service! I will definitely buy more from Russian knifes.
The K1 is an awesome little fixed blade. Fit and finish is next lever and attention to detail unmatched. Customer service from Russian Knives is amazing, they make you feel like every purchase is extremely important to them personally. I will be buying from them again.
Great knife, the workmanship is exceptional from the handle to the blade finish to de leather sheath, and is extremely sharp. Great knife maker and great seller, will definitely buy from you guys again.
Excellent box and presentation of the knife. The first thing you notice is the fit and finish and amazing attention to detail in the design of the knife where you can feel when you hold it that no corners were cut. Spine is rounded where it should be rounded, not overly aggressive on the gimping, functional swedge for batoning and bolstering of the tip. They say you should never use a knife for prying, but if you did, it would be this one, it’s heavily reinforced. Sharp right out of the box, and comes with a nice kydex sheath. I’m very happy with this purchase. This knife feels the same way a Carothers Performance knife feels in hand. You can just feel the quality in it, except you can actually get ahold of these!
Very well done well made and sharp blade. Very good service all around. Will buy from Russian Knives again.
This is my third TRC fixed blade knife. To say that I'm thrilled by TRC's designs, materials and workmanship would be an understatement. ... Out of the box, the Classic Freedom exhibits the expected, incredible fit and finish for which TRC is famous. You know you've arrived in cutlery nirvana when you handle the knife. ... I was somewhat surprised by the size of the knife. I was expecting sort of a more robust paring knife. It will handle kitchen and camp paring chores, but will excel at much more than that. ... It has a full size handle, easily big enough for my large size hands, even with gloves on. The full tang blade stock thickness is listed at 1/10" or 2.7 mm. It is thinner than most all of my other knives, with the exception of light duty kitchen paring knives. The M390 blade is a high saber grind. It is very thin behind the edge and slices like a light saber. Just ahead of the ricasso, the blade is about 1 1/16" wide. It is full width at the spine until the spot where the dropped point meets the even saber grinds, about 3/4" from the relatively well supported, needle sharp tip. It's hardened to Rockwell C 61-62 and will hold the edge for a long time. Mine hasn't even needed stropping yet. Even though made with thin blade stock, the M390 fine grain, homogeneous steel gives us an amazing blade that is not at all dainty. It's a little workhorse, perfect for everyday carry utility use, pan/trout fishing, small/upland game cleaning, and even deer sized game. It feather sticks like a dedicated bushcraft knife. My personal preference is for saber grinds rather than scandis, as I find the saber grind to be more versatile. ... The leather belt sheath is also of typical TRC quality - top drawer. ... The Classic Freedom is a real gem and has earned the place of honor, to be frequently found on my hip.
Nice knife / design. Well built. Very smooth operating. Fast delivery. Great service.
