Tsarap Folder by Brutalica is an awesome new EDC folding knife with a true Wharncliffe blade. The knife was designed as a slightly bigger brother of Tsarap Fixed.
The blade is made of famous and well known D2 steel with a stonewash finish. The blade has a flat grind which is awesome for everyday tasks and has a very powerful cutting ability.
The Tsarap Folder knife has a steel frame with durable G10 scales and liner lock. The original pocket clip can be installed on both sides of the handle for left- or right-handed caring.
The pivot point has a ballbearing system for the easy opening and closing with one hand.
There are two options for the handle: BLACK G10, RED G10 or ORANGE G10
Awesome service …..awesome knives. 👍
I love the shape of the blade, extremely sharp and great for my everyday use.Great knife
This is a great tool knife, and would be a solid EDC if you don't mind a slightly larger knife. The action on the knife is super smooth, and the lockup is great. Access to the lockbar is nice too. I'm able to easily thumb flick or reverse flick this open. The Warrencliffe blade is strong and slicy, and d2 is a solid blade steel as long as you have some harder grit stones to sharpen it. Really awesome knife design, and love the orange. Definitely recommended.
While being a big fan of wharncliffe and flat grinded blades I was both intrigued and a bit skeptical about Tsarap. I was wondering about ease of opening, handling and applicability for variety of tasks, how justified hump on the blade will be, and other things. Knife exceeded my expectations in every area. Built like a tank, yet very balanced. May be on a heavier side, but it's more as a benefit for me. One hand opening is super smooth and easy in two styles I personally used to, while having zero blade play. Model I’ve got has orange textured handle which is my personal preference and recommendation if intended for outdoor use. What is hard to see on photos but needs to be highlighted is that you can attach lineyard. While blade shape may look a bit bulky visually it easily covers anything from fine carving to relatively heavy duty tasks when extra thumb pressure is due. I will not hesitate taking it as a solid companion to a fix knife on hiking/camping/hunting/etc trips.
Combination of materials, build quality, usability and price will be hard to match. One of my new favorites. Thank you!!
A solid offering. Very ergonomic in the hand, buttery smooth opening with a thumb roll, flick, or under finger flick. It opens like a dream followed by a solid lock up. Super sharp out of the box, and just a cool shape when closed. I am impressed and would buy it all over again. Great service from Russian knives, excellent price, and great packing/shipping. Thanks!
