Fantastic knife

This is my second TRC knife and I have to say the fit and finish is second to none. It was my first purchase with Russian knives and they have exceeded expectations with fast delivery and prompt answers to questions before the order. A+ Rating for knife and company.

Fit and Finish

I have not been able to use this knife as I just received it, but the fit and finish are top notch. The apocalypse finish on the blade is unique as it is beautiful. I'm looking forward to this being my knife of choice for day hikes in the backcountry where I live in Colorado.

Amazing knife

Prior to this purchase, I had a standard TRC Apocalypse and standard TRC South Pole (i.e the ones with the satin blade). I was happy with both of them, however the South Pole had visible some scratch marks on the blade from factory (see photos) - which is a little disappointing.

I was really curious about the "Apocalyptic" blade finish. It is really unique and photos don't do it justice. The micarta scales really set the knife apart. I also purchases a K-1s Apocalyptic and I expected the knives to be the same size, 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

Love my South Pole from TRC

Gorgeous instrument.

2nd Southpole

This is my second Southpole, which speaks of the quality and dependability of these blades. Will admit that I prefer the feel of the solid corby bolts of the original finish over the hollow ones on this model (only on this model surprisingly enough), but that is just personal preference still feels good in hand as a do everything for its size knife
