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”...

I didn’t know anything about Mr. Blade steel before this purchase. I own some decent stuff, custom and other premiums, and this knife feels good in my large hand. Awesome action and appearance. Finish and quality feel significantly more expensive than what I paid. Every bit the equal of some $200 Benchmades I’ve bought, probably better. The blade will shave hair. Being D2, time will tell on edge retention. The G10 is really well done, and I’m not a big G10 fan. Bottom line...killer deal.
Excellent and a very beautiful knife ! It exudes quality 👍🇷🇺👌
The owner himself contacted me directly and let me know the status of my order and answered questions I had. Absolutely incredible company, I highly highly recommend. As for the knife- amazing. Very tough, great fit and finish!
Good steel, very well designed to be easy to hold onto even when wet - sharp looking with a very good leather sheath - I just keep buying these Russian knives, fit and finish is as good as many of the custom made knives --- John H
Very pleased will definitely order again
I was so stoked Russian Knives had this in stock. Ordered late Friday and it was in my hands on Tuesday! I went camping the next few days and the TRC South Pole easily handled all of my camp duties. The knife is flawless and razor sharp out of the box. Looking forward to ordering a couple more TRC’s from Russian Knives in the near future. Probably the Apocalypse,This is Freedom and the Mille Couri. If you like a company that has fair pricing, speedy shipping and excellent customer service, look no further than Russian Knives!
A beautiful knife...light weight and we'll balanced.
I have yet to put this knife through its paces, as I just received it. However I am blown away with the quality and attention to detail. The stitching on the beautiful leather sheath matches the color of the handle inserts and the color on the fire starter. Blade is ridiculously sharp and the handle is flawless. I have no doubt that this knife will handle anything thrown at it and stay sharp. Mosaic pins are a nice touch. Overall I couldn't be happier with the quality and attention to detail. Also, it is always a pleasure dealing with Vlad. Knife shipped quickly and he is super responsive.
I originally purchased this knife thinking that it would be great for backpacking- I like to carry a small knife inverted on my backpack strap. After it arrived, and I was able to examine it I was surprised to find that, though is a very compact package, it is thicker and generally heavier than I suspected. While, this is not really a bad thing, it wasn't as suitable for backpacking, where every ounce counts. After using it a bit , I find that it's find a good choice for discreet Self Defense Carry or, even as a compact tool for a canoe trip- it is sturdy and thick enough to be able to do some bush craft work with.
The knife came sharp, but not wicked sharp. I believe this to be more of a function of the blade geometry rather than any lapse on the part of the manufacturer. You can only get a blade this thick so sharp. Having said that, you can hone the edge that it comes with a bit so that it is, essentially, sharp enough for any regular task that you would have for a knife- which brings me to the blade steel. What exactly is X109? From the way it sharpens and the general hardness of the blade, I suspect it is a steel that is equivalent to 440c and, since it is a German steel, I suspect that it is tempered on the softer side of the scale, which makes it tougher and less likely to break, but Will require more frequent sharpening . So, suitable for bush craft work .
The sheath that it comes with bears a quick mention. Not only is it attractive but, it is very usable and well suited for inverted or small of the back carry. If I were still a young man in the military, the little extra weight would not bother me and I would use the sheath to carry the knife inverted on my carry gear.
Overall, a very useful knife, well crafted in Russia – five stars.
Good workmanship, well balanced, well sharpened edge. High quality knife all in all. My second knife and won’t be my last from TRC.
Unfortunately I am still waiting for this knife its missing some where on the way .sunes I will have it i houp it wilbe my one of the best
