TOPS Knives Grandpa’s Ax – Now Available

Apparently cutting tool design runs in the Espinoza family’s blood. TOPS Knives newest tool, Grandpa’s Ax, was designed by Lorenzo Espinoza, father of TOPS Knives President and Chief Designer, Leo Espinoza.

In 2016, a challenge was issued to the employees of TOPS Knives. Whoever can design the best hatchet, tomahawk, or ax will get it approved as a design, be credited as the designer, and TOPS will produce it. This hatchet was the winner of that contest. The winner? Lorenzo Espinoza Sr. Lorenzo is Leo’s father. Leo is the President of TOPS Knives, the main designer, and the guy who approves all outside designs. You know what they say: like father, like son.

Grandpa’s Ax is an excellent mix of size, weight, and chopping capability for a small hatchet. Weighing just under 1.5lbs, this is a tool that can be easily carried long distances, making it excellent for backpackers and minimalist campers. The weight is in the head of the hatchet and its shape leaves it balanced to chop very well for its size.
