TRC Knives

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. But only those who go prepared, can withstand the tough. Moving on skis and dog sleds and facing death on multiple occasions, Roald Amundsen and his men were the first ones to reach the South Pole. People called him a hero and an inspiration. But Amundsen was a practical man who explained his success in practical terms. I have foreseen every difficulty and I have taken every precaution for meeting and avoiding it, he said. Victory awaits him who has everything in order.


At TRC knives, we wanted to create a knife in the spirit of Amundsen’s practicality: a perfect utilitarian knife for dealing with every possible natural challenge. The SOUTH POLE model features a thick spine which is perfect for heavy work. 115mm long drop point hand ground blade is ideal for all kinds of survival and camping applications. What’s more, the belly is just long enough to make SOUTH POLE a great knife for game cleaning, food prep and other day-to-day uses. To top it off, the model features a protruding round spine, creating a comfortable feel when holding it. Jimping combined with textured scales provide perfect traction and control in any situation. Handmade Kydex ® sheath is included. In the end, it doesn’t really matter if you are going to Antarctica, or to the nearby forest. With SOUTH POLE, you will go prepared.


Please note, that colours of all materials may change through time and that they can be slightly different than the original picture.

    I believe that the South Pole is the finest all around outdoor knife you can buy. It is the perfect size for almost any task, besides chopping this blade is tough and surgical sharp !! I’ve banged it through multiple kind of wood with barely a scratch. Cutting and slicing couldn’t be better, and it’s built too last. It’s the perfect companion for my Apocalypse !! Quality and finish are at the top of the trade, you won’t regret buying this one 👍👍👏

    Superbe couteau. Prise en main exceptionnelle. L’ergonomie du manche convient parfaitement à ma main. Le Micarta texturé donne un bon grip et le couteau tiens bien dans la main pendant les mouvements, même quand il est mouillé. Livré rasoir en sortie de boite. L’émouture plate partielle le rend super polyvalent. Je suis très content de mon achat, cet outil est mon préféré.
    Le traitement thermique a l’air correct car je l’ai utilisé trois fois en sortie en forêt et je n’ai toujours pas eu à l’affuter. Personnellement j’adore l’Elmax tout comme le M390 qui sont à mon sens de très bons aciers de coutellerie.
    L’étui est très bien réalisé et fonctionnel. J’aime beaucoup le repose pouce pour sortir le couteau.
    Bref je recommande ce couteau à tous les amateurs de beau couteaux.
    TRC c’est le TOP

    My South pole is built to uncompromising standards (Thank-you TRC). There is not a flaw to be found anywhere.
    I looked for many years to find the “ONE” knife. There were a few other competitors, but this one won me over and I’m glad I have it. It was factory engraved for me. Just outstanding. I can’t keep it out of my hands. I am not doing a report on function but it just plain works. It has a lethal edge and the small details in design and finish leave you gob smacked. There are bigger and smaller knives out there but if you have to choose just one, This is it! It is small enough that the weight and size is not an issue (like a bigger knife can be) but big enough for nearly any task (it’s not for falling and processing trees-it’s a knife. We have axes for that(Canada). It will cut wood without a thought though.) The handle could be a slight bit thicker and longer, but that would add bulk. I’m 6′-2, 230lbs with average hands about 8″ from inside wrist/palm junction to longest finger tip. It fits. For me It should be “North Pole” since I’m in Canada, LOL. Probably the last knife I will ever buy, unless I get another model TRC. If you like knives, you MUST have one. If you get one, you’re going to want more. TRUTH
