South Pole is one of the best knives from TRC Knives.
This is a perfectly made full tang classic drop point knife made of premium materials: ELMAX steel blade hardened to 59-60 HRC and Black Canvas Micarta handle.
The razor-sharp blade has a practical satin finish. The spine is rounded with an elegant jimping cut, providing control and confident operation.
The knife comes with an awesome modern Kydex sheath.
Attention: all new South Pole knives are coming with new-style bushings instead of classic rivets.

I have a few TRC knives and they are the closest knife to custom as you can get without the custom price. Elmax on a blade this size is great because it really holds an edge well. The factory edge was perfect. World class knives as usual!
Purchase was easy. Fast shipping and yeah, the knife is excellent! Fit and finish is well executed with the crowned spine and tang. Handle to blade ratio, grip, edge, and sheath are all top notch. Solid lockup with no rattles. Good job TRC!
Love these knives! This makes #6 purchased, going back to the original K-1. Best all around, do everything knife made. Fit and finish is always perfect. I snagged one of the no-box specials and it is perfect, thanks Russian Knives.
I am one of those people…who don’t write reviews. I also have made knives and knows what they are looking for in knives made by others. The TRC may be my perfect knife for everyday outdoor use: hiking, camping, fishing and hunting. The 4” blade is stout, without compromising the ability to fillet a trout thanks to a thin blade grind. The knofe overall is light and quick in the hand, almost an extension of mine. I purchased the optional leather sheath and swap out with the TRC supplied kydex, both being works of art in their own right.
Absolute 10/10 score, with no regrets.
The TRC South Pole is absolutely perfect in every aspect . The blade steel is a smart choice . The grind is flawless . The handle is nicely done and the sheath is phenomenal . This knife is so great I ordered a second one . Looking forward to ordering the other models offered by TRC . Regards .
