TRC South Pole = Awesome knife!

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!

South Pole

Good workmanship, well balanced, well sharpened edge. High quality knife all in all. My second knife and won’t be my last from TRC.

Best There Is!

I own 5 South Poles from TRC. They are the perfect bushcraft-do-everything knife. They are strong, great steels and comfortable in the hand. I have never seen or heard of anyone having a quality problem with TRC out of the box. They are just the best. The K1s makes a great hunting/companion too.


What I love about TRC knives is there no bull crap approach to simplicity. Sometimes less is more. You won't find any frilly bits on this knife. Fit and finish is just what you would expect from TRC knives. One of the best all around use knife from bushcrafting to Wilderness survival, to hunting. I believe this knife can do it all.
