The knife is impeccable, the workmanship superb. The flat grind and slim blade profile make it perfect for food prep and general (non-bushcraft) field chores. This is my second TRC; my Apocalypse, which I use for heavier field work, is equally impressive. These are not inexpensive knives but they are high value nevertheless. Vlad Kovalov of Rosarms assisted me with my order. He's a very competent and knowledgeable gentleman and I anticipate doing business with him again. Thanks, Vlad!
