The author’s knife Troyander was made by the master Mitsevich Sergey Mikhailovich. It is positioned as a simple and reliable working knife for all occasions..
Author’s knife Troyander, description, review, test and impressions of the design of the knife and its sheath.
belts up to 5 centimeters wide. It is difficult to remove the knife from the sheath with one hand, but if necessary it is quite possible. You can put the knife back in with one hand, but with this original design it is undesirable. The reason will be described below..
tin cans. There are many ways to increase the resistance of the edge of the blade to lateral loads, even if this slightly reduces the excellent cutting properties of this knife. I think here everyone should decide for himself what is worth sacrificing.
flint, carbon steel carves a large number of sparks. The blade itself is without damage, and the resulting carbon deposits are easily erased with a finger. In total, the Trojander knife was used for various purposes and on various materials without interruption for five days, during all this time there was no need to edit or sharpen it.
Even chipping after canned food on the cutting properties of the knife had practically no effect. But if necessary, for its editing in the field, something ceramic of medium granularity will be quite enough. However, now I somehow faintly imagine how much everything needs to be cut in order to blunt this knife to the state when it refuses to cut.

Some conclusions after a field test of the author’s knife Troyander.
In my opinion, Troyander is a well-assembled knife with good cutting properties, but requiring careful care and maintenance during operation. Now it is more, if I may say so, for those who are aware of its merits and demerits of a connoisseur, and not for a simple inexperienced user. It will be possible to call it universal only after a series of improvements that will eliminate or at least minimize its vulnerabilities, including.
1. Not entirely successful sheath suspension design.
2. The sheath itself, or rather the material from which they are made.
3. Blade too susceptible to corrosion.
4. Weak resistance of the cutting edge to lateral loads.
