The TRC Knives Apocalypse is a robust and large survival knife, made in Lithuania. With the Apocalypse TRC has presented a knife that can handle anything. The source of inspiration for the TRC is the population of the Sentinal Islands. A tribal community which has been avoiding all forms of communication with the outside world for hundreds of years. Marco Polo described the Sentinelese as the most brutal people he had ever seen. To them all outsiders are aliens, and they do whatever necessary to defend themselves. The TRC Apocalypse is the knife you want to have close whenever you find yourself in such a situation.
The blade is made from Böhler Elmax steel. A strong type of steel that is corrosion resistant and retains its sharpness for a long time. The flat grind is applied by hand in the TRC workshop. This rarely happens with production knives. With a 6.4 mm blade thickness you will always have enough strength in hands for survival tasks. At the same time the edge is nice and thin to make sure the knife cuts properly.
The handle is made from micarta. It might be hard to see on the photograph, but the surface has been enhanced with a subtle diamond pattern. As a result you will have even more grip over the knife. Because the curved tang of the blade protrudes just a mm outside of the handle your hand will fill it even better. The, for TRC typical, screws with the three holes add to the knife and really turn the whole into something remarkable.
The TRC Knives Apocalypse comes with a nice kydex sheath. It beautifully fits around the knife, you can definitely tell that a lot of attention was paid to it. The sheath is enhanced with a flexible belt loop with can also be converted for left-handed use. Of course you can also select your own mountings method and screw this to the mountings holes. There is also a firesteel loop that enables you to carry a firesteel (not included). Please note: kydex almost always leaves minor scratches on the blade by sliding in and out. This is normal.
