TOPS Knives passed 20 years old in October 2018 and they have been releasing some very special knives to celebrate. This is their second 20th anniversary offering…
From TOPS Knives:
TOPS Knives turned 20 years old in October 2018 and to commemorate the accomplishment, we released a limited run of the Tom Brown Tracker #3 made with special steel, handles, and sheath. The success of that model led us to make this next 20th-anniversary edition model.
The Tex Creek is an excellent all-around knife design. It’s perfect around the campsite, if you’re out on a hike, fishing for the day, and makes a great hunting knife as well. The original was designed by Leo Espinoza to be his personal hunting knife for deer season in Idaho a few years back. Tex Creek is the name of the unit where he grew up hunting in Idaho.
This will be a one-time run made with CPM154 steel hardened to 58-60 on the Rockwell C scale. It has thick, well-rounded handles with a white liner sandwiched between black canvas Micarta and a gorgeous red/black carbon fiber on top. The sheath is red Kydex with black Kydex on top and a burgundy leather dangler to finish off the package.
