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.

Great size!

The South Pole is a great size for hunting and backpacking. It's light but strong and the fit and finish is perfect. I personally can't think of many other knives that fill the nitch of size and weigh as well as the South Pole.

Sleek and Sharp!

I was looking for the best of the best knife to use in the outdoors. For me, that means Elmax or M390 steel. This TRC South Pole hits the sweet spot! The Micarta handle and grip feels good in the hand. The full tang and blade are thick. That’s added insurance it won’t snap under stress. Built to impress in function and in style, it doesn’t disappoint. The South Pole clicks securely into the Kydex sheath too so there’s no chance it will be lost. The belt loop attachment is made of a sturdy weave so it moves with you on the fly. All materials easily weather activities in wet conditions. For me, this tool is a great investment!

What an amazing piece of work

I have wanted this knife for a few years and the timing just never worked out. When I was willing to spend the money they were out, and when I wasn't I just drooled and wished I would. I finally pulled the trigger and I'm certainly glad I did. Amazing workmanship, beautiful blade (super sharp) , nice weight and comfortable in my large (I'm 6'3" 240) hands. I can't wait to take it on my next hunt and make use of it. Thank you at for making this and other great knives accessible. I may have to buy another before long I like it so much.
