The TRC Mini Tanto is a great neck knife. Remarkable about the TRC Mini Tanto is the finish. For this knife they partly left the finish of the M390-steel blade as it was when it came from the oven. They call this the Apocalyptic finish. A brown-bronze look with an occasional blue, green or orange stripe. This Apocalyptic finish is unique on each knife. It makes the TRC Mini Tanto very special and indispensable in any knife collection. Please note: TRC states that the Apocalyptic finish is slightly more sensative to rust. In time your knife will therefore look even tougher. A nice detail is how they gave the tanto-tip a satin finish. It adds some contrast and makes the knife even more appealing to look at.
As you probably already noticed this TRC Mini Tanto doesn't have any scales. The knife consist of one piece of M390 steel. As such the Apocalyptic finish looks even better and the knife is slim and light-weight. Incredibly practical because it has made carrying a neck knife a lot more comfortable. Despite the absence of the scales the knife feels great in hand. TRC achieved this by giving the edges of the handle a subtle bevel.
You can carry the TRC Mini Tanto in two ways. Around your neck like a neck knife, or on your belt with the belt loop. The top-quality kydex sheath neatly keeps the blade in place.
