This was my first TRC knife purchase, and I'm blown away by the quality. Absolutely beautiful finish and attention to detail. Flawless grind and sharpening on the blade, and the photos don't do justice to the attractive apocalyptic finish. I wasn't sure if I would like this blade finish before I held the knife in my hands, but seeing it in person it is very unique and attractive. The handle is extremely comfortable in the hand, and offers excellent control. The sheath holds the blade with just the right amount of tension to make it secure but easy to access. My only small complaint is that I wish the sheath was MOLLE compatible instead of just having a belt loop, but this is really a small issue for this amazing offering. I'm looking forward to getting more TRC knives from Russian Knives in the future.
