a very sharp and light knife good for EDC

TRC Apocalyptic K-1

Beyond happy with my purchase from Russian Knives. Price was excellent. Difficult to find this item and they had it in stock. Shipped out priority mail within hours of my purchase. Had it in hand in two days time! The knife is stunning. Can’t go wrong with a TRC knife- even the package screams attention to detail. I will look here first for any future purchases! Thanks again!

Amazing knife

Prior to this purchase, I had a standard Apocalypse and standard South Pole (i.e the ones with the satin blade). I was happy with both of them.

I was really curious about the K-1s and the Apocalyptic blade finish. It is really unique and photos don't do it justice. I expected the K-1s to be the same size as the South Pole, but as per the phots, the K-1s is smaller.

I am very happy with this purchase, as the the fit and finish is perfect. There are no blemishes, scratches or imperfections at all. The grind on the blade is perfectly consistent and accurate. Whoever or however they sharpen the knives, is simply astonishing. The attention to detail on this knife is second to none. Very happy with the purchase.

Photos (from Top): Apocalypse, South Pole, South Pole - Apocalyptic, K-1s - Apocalyptic.
Where the in the photos where you can see scratches on the South Pole satin blade, I was shining a light on them.
The other photos are normal without a light.
The knife colors are darker to the human eye than in the photos

Another Winner!

Love TRC knives! This one is in the same category as the Apocalypse and the South Pole which I have as well. It's fit and finish are superb! The K1 Apocalyptic is the shorter of the three. Like those, this one comes with a Kydex sheath - awesome for the great outdoors! It's thickness makes it excellent for wedging and it is incredibly sharp. Though I haven't used my new K1 yet, I plan to take it camping the next time I go. Not only is it utilitarian, this knife just looks impressively cool! My friend who recently examined it was nearly speechless! All he could muster was a drawn out, "Wow!" Get one before they're gone! A really cool knife adds to the fun when out on adventures!

Awesome knife

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.
