Beautiful minimalistic all around knife

I bought this as my fathers birthday gift. And I used it a little bit. I find this knife is incredibly durable and pretty. Everything just screams quality. One thing I don't like is the little corner of the index finger guard is a little bit too poky.

Great knife

Fit and finish is spectacular. Very sharp. Sheath is very nice.

I was at first hesitant to spend $315 for a knife ordered off the internet. But I researched Russian Knives and found out they have a good reputation. I then called to ask some questions about the TRC South Pole. I left a message Monday morning and received a call back that afternoon. I then discussed with Vlad my rivet/bushing options now available on the South Pole handle and choose the classic rivets. I purchased the knife Tuesday morning and received it USPS on Thursday! It arrived in a TRC box with all the proper TRC paperwork proving it was the "Real McCoy". The knife is beyond my expectations with outstanding fit, finish, and design. When I compared it next to my ELMAX Bradley Guardian 4.5, the South Pole looks like a Mercedes parked next to a Yugo! And when I figured that Bradley charged me extra for their Kydex sheath, the TRC was only $20 higher! I highly recommend both TRC and Vlad of Russian Knives to everyone that appreciates quality knives and great customer service.
