More of a tabletop, it hasnt gotten much use yet. This is my second TRC (Apocalypse:1st), and of all the blades I own, the fit and finish of these blades is the best I've seen. This includes the kydex sheath: near seamless edges and perfect retension (will note I prefer a molded drain hole at the bottom rather than a drilled in one). I have L-XL hands and the grip is a little thin and flat for me, and I'm on the fence about the choil/finger groove: locks in the grip well but limits the grip options. The fabric feel of the micarta is nice and grippy, gets dirty easily though but some mild detergent and soft nylon brush restores it no problem. Because the scales are replaceable would be curious to see other scale options. The blade thickness with its high saber grind, good balance of drop point to belly, elmax steel, and length: makes for for a good general lightweight jack of all trades belt carry for hiking, defense, fishing, hunting, camp food prep and utility. Could do some bushcraft but prefer a saber-vex or scandi for those tasks. When feather sticking the most natural grip for me was thumb on jimping which was comfortable but can fatigue easily. Will try hard not to let this be a safe queen because last time I checked, no tales were told of men who didnt use their knives out of fear of getting them scratched or dirty. Great experience with Russianknives as well esp the correspondence would buy from here again.
