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”...

As always, the knife was shipped within 24 hours by priority mail. As far as I can tell, this knife is flawless. It's a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. I haven't used it yet, but it fits my large-ish hand perfectly. Blade is faultless and razor sharp. It's a tight fit in the sheath; the sheath must be held when the knife is drawn. Perhaps it would loosen up with use. But, it certainly won't fall out be lost. I think I might prefer a well-made leather sheath, but that's an issue of personal preference.
I'm loving this knife. It's beautifully made, the FFG Elmax blade cuts great, and the provided leather sheath is quite good as well.
I'm very happy with my purchase, this is IMO a great knife for the money. I'd highly recommend it.
My recent purchase with Russian Knives was an absolute pleasure. There service was outstanding. I am very happy with my one of a kind knife purchase.
Customer service was without a doubt, the best!!!
This knife met every expectation. It was as aesthetically appealing as it appeared on the website. This alone was a welcome change from the drab utilitarianism that now seems to reign in the industry. The quality of the materials and the workmanship were as advertised. The packaging and delivery service were both excellent. I was well pleased and have already ordered a second knife from RussianKnives.com
This knife is not messing around. I am a big collector and tester of many knives and brands and this one is definitely top notch. I was skeptical because of the price point in the begging but Russian knives had a great discount so I purchased it. I would have paid full price after seeing the attention to detail on this knife. It’s big bold and ready to take on any task.
Appears to be one of the finest knives I have purchased, a blending of beauty and function.
The craftsmanship on this knife is excellent. The handle on this knife provide a very good grip while being very comfortable at the same time.
Perfection to it's Finest. Best looking Quality Handmade Knife I'd ever owned! I'm so serious about it when I say no other knife makers even come Close to the superb quality of this Magnitude of Craftsmanship! I'm a perfectionist & been collecting knifes for well over 35 years, This is the BEST out the box I've seen yet! Ya don't have to take my word for it... Buy ONE for yourself & see it for yourself! The Price is WORTH the Knife too. I've seen way over priced custom made knives that were double the price & wouldn't hold a candle to this BadBoy😎 Thankyou 🇷🇺Russian Knives for a Perfect Product. I will be back!
The attention to detail and every finished surface and edge is spectacular, it’s finished like a gem.
Great steel, nice size and very well made.
A great hunting knife for me and a great steel for outdoor uses.
The Kizlyar Supreme will blow you away! A beautiful design and outstanding quality will complement your knife collection. Buy this knife and you will be happy!
Very nice knife. I love these knives you sell, so well made and useful. Again thank you
Nasty sharp, beautiful finish, excellent craftsmanship and all around great mini concealment weapon. Once again fantastic job TRC and spot on Russian Knives!
nice quality fixed blade that can be carried like a folder
As an avid life long knife collector, I’ve owned knives from some of the great knife makers around like Jimmy Lile, Randall, Shane Sibert and Todd Begg just to name a few. The fit, finish and quality of the TRC Apocalypse is on par if not surpasses ANY knife that I’ve ever owned. The only issue with this knife is that it’s so beautiful, you won’t want to use it...you’ll need to buy two, one to look at and one to use. Yes I have two.
Tot grade stainless m390 with great erganomics. Arrived razor sharp and beautiful. I love this knife!
I am very pleased with my purchase. It is so nice I hate to use it but it is such a good knife that it is my best carry. Thank you.
I love this knife!! it's very well made...a little pricey but a great knife!!
I tried to buy a similar Olamic knife a few years ago but it sold out before I got it. This knife more than makes up for missing out on the previous one. Even with the free shipping the knife arrived in 4 days. I can't think of anything that you could improve on.
Just received my Elmax Apocalypse, and I will admit that I was expecting a very high quality custom. Well I most certainly wasn’t disappointed, this knife has impeccable grinds, symmetry is perfect !! Every part of this knife is finished too a point I would have thought impossible. I own many custom and semi custom knives and for the price , this knife is a steal. It blows my other knives away in quality “ I won’t name mfgrs “. I’m going too try too get a signature edition if it’s still available. Same knife, I’ve never done that before. TRC is my new favorite fixed blade knife company !! 👍
One of the nicest finished knives I have ever purchased. Beautiful grinds. Wonderful design, well poportioned (width to length to thickness). I like some of my knives on the thinner side as is this one. Honestly I can't say enough about the quality... and it's only $200. Buy one.
Excellent knife, high quality blade and sheath
WOW! I couldn’t be more satisfied with my purchase of the TRC Apocalypse. The knife is one of the highest quality blades in my collection. This was my first time ordering from Russian Knives and I was extremely pleased with their service and fast shipping. Vlad even followed up to ensure I was happy with my purchase. I highly recommend Russian Knives!
This knife has hands down the best factory edge I've ever seen. It has a simple and stylish handle with a very slicey grind and there were zero flaws on the one I received, which is refreshing. It's everything I would want in a fixed blade and I love the thing.
Nice blade and grip. It could be a little bit sharper, but other than that it was everything I was looking for.
Very nice knife, it is what I hope for. Very well made knife!
Am very impressed with the Russian made knife.
Good quality construction.
The Malamute is a very high quality knife that's awesome. Workmanship is among the very best knives I own. I am hoping to get the Kialim when it's back in stock.

The knife was absolutely beautiful o bought it for my Father on Fathers Day and he absolutely loved it.
If you like long walks on the beach, sherry wine, and crying during rom-com movies this knife is NOT for you. However if your the kind of dude who pulls his own nose hairs, may practice self dentistry and can start a fire with two sticks and some dry weeds this is your blade.
This is the best fit and finished knife I have ever seen or owned and I have seen/owned many. I haven't tested it yet so I can't speak to it's performance, but I suspect it will do just fine.
The TRC Apocalypse is an impressive knife. This is my second knife with elmax and the TRC is a far more substantial knife. I also have a fallkniven A1 but its edge is almost dull and was never razor sharp, even new. The A1 convex grind is hard to sharpen for me. I have tried the trc out with basic bushcraft in the backyard and used it in the kitchen to make meals. It has worked great on all chores and still sharp. Looking forward to fall and camping to try it out in the woods.
Fit and finish is superb. The factory edge is razor sharp. Russianknives processed and shipped my order very quickly, no more than a few days from order to my door step. The sheath that comes with this knife is a high quality kydex with molle holes for different attachment options. Overall I coulld not be happier with Russianknives or the TRC Apocalypse. This definitely will nit be last TRC knife.
Sehr schnittfreudiges Messer, für alle Möglichen Arbeiten bestens geeignet, sehr schön gearbeitet und sehr schöner und angenehm in der Hand liegender Griff. Neben dem Samoyed eines der schönsten und brauchbarsten Messer (meiner Meinung nach).
The cadet is the perfect hunting knife as advertised. The handle fits perfectly the hand. The blade is the most useable I've seen. I have the birch bark version. It looks like a cross between a Finnish knife and an American knife. Beautiful unique knife. The sheath is also perfect and minimalistic in nature. Nothing more than what is needed.
