New from TOPS Knives: Fieldcraft 3.5

For years, the Fieldcraft by Brothers of Bushcraft (aka BOB, aka BROS) has been a top selling model for TOPS. It’s a great all-around mid-sized knife for bushcrafting, survival, and more. Of course, many people have asked for larger and smaller versions of the knife for different reasons. This was the driving force behind the Fieldcraft 3.5. Its blade length is slightly over 3.5”, which is the sweet spot for many people in small camp knives, EDC fixed blades, and hunting knives for small game, fish, and fowl. You’ll be glad you picked this one up.

New from TOPS: SXS and HAKET Lumberjack

TOPS Knives just rolled out two new designs. The first is the EJ Snyder designed SXS and the second is a new version of the HAKET called the HAKET Lumberjack.

SXS

Whether you’re looking for a knife to complement the SXB or for a solid all-around 5” blade, Skullcrusher’s Xtreme Sidekick (SXS) has your back. This is the slimmed down version of the SXB that many have been asking for. It’s got the same blade shape as the SXB, which is proven useful for a variety of tasks, with some modifications to the handle that make it perfect in the mid-sized knife category. Add in a Kydex sheath that gives the user multiple mounting options right out of the box, and you have a knife that stands out by itself just as much as it complements the SXB.

HAKET Lumberjack

The HAKET was debuted at SHOT Show in 2010. Both of the blades currently available for it are very small, and while they’re great for survival situations, TOPS wanted to make an option that had more real estate for chopping wood. Enter the Lumberjack. It’s got a 4.5” cutting edge on the ax portion and is upgraded with Kydex blade covers and the deluxe carrying pouch to fit all of your extra survival goodies. The blade attachment can be used with or without being attached to the handle and can be mounted in a couple of different ways making the HAKET an excellent choice as a survival tool.

TOPS Knives – 20th Anniversary Edition Tex Creek

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.

Specs:

  • Overall Length: 9.0”
  • Blade Length: 4.25”
  • Cutting Edge: 4.25”
  • Blade Thickness: .17”
  • Blade Steel: CPM154 RC 58-60
  • Blade Finish: Tumble
  • Handle Material: Black Canvas Micarta and Red/Black Carbon Fiber
  • Knife Weight: 7.5oz
  • Weight w/ Sheath: 12.1oz
  • Sheath Material: Red/Black Kydex
  • Sheath Clip: Burgundy Leather Dangler
  • Designer: Leo Espinoza
  • MSRP: $300.00

New from TOPS Knives: Rapid Strike

The new Rapid Strike, from TOPS Knives, is a slim fixed blade knife designed with concealment in mind…

Everything about the Rapid Strike makes it an excellent combatives blade. The cutting edge is long enough for good slashing cuts and thrusts. It can be single or double-edged to meet legal requirements or be even more dangerous. The G10 handle is strong and grippy and combined with the recessed jimping that goes all the way around the handle, it’s easy to keep it in your hand when you need it the most. The sheath was designed to allow for a combat grip straight out of the sheath (meaning the hand doesn’t have to be readjusted to grip the handle properly after it’s removed from the sheath). The thin blade material and narrow profile take up little space on a belt, on a vest, in a boot, or wherever else you choose to carry it. 154CM stainless steel was chosen to provide a strong blade with little maintenance needed to keep it clean and sharp.

So whether you’re deployed to one of the current hot spots around the world, serving and protecting in your neighborhood, or just a prepared citizen who wants something to help get you home safe, the Rapid Strike is perfect for you. Plus it makes a great steak knife too.

New from TOPS Knives – The Quickie Knife

TOPS Knives just released their newest knife – The Quickie. Here’s what they had to say about it:

In an increasingly uncertain world, tools like the Quickie become ever more valuable. It’s a “3-finger” karambit, meaning that the 3rd finger away from the blade should be placed in the hole. The design allows the user to still have some use of his/her hand while the blade is being held. This is especially useful for first responders that may have to draw the knife before they can access their primary weapon because it removes the need to drop or re-sheath the knife (both bad options) to get to that primary weapon once it becomes available.

Pick up the Quickie from a TOPS authorized dealer or from TOPS at www.topsknives.com/quickie

New from TOPS Knives: The 3 Bros

TOPS Knives just rolled out the 3 Bros – a trio of compact fixed blade knives that they have shown at trade shows. These knives feature really interesting handles that you have to hold to understand. The thick micarta disks on the handles add enough swell to anchor these minimalist knives in your grip.

From TOPS Knives:

These tiny fixed blade knives pack a lot of use into a very small package. With an overall length of less than four and a half inches, they’re also very easy to carry every day. Each blade is about two inches long and TOPS has decided to offer it with three different styles: Hunter, Tanto, and Sheep’s Foot. They may be small, but TOPS didn’t skimp on the quality. When you need the functionality of a utility knife with the strength of a fixed-blade, the 3 Bros are what you’re looking for.

Pick up the 3 Bros from a TOPS authorized dealer or from TOPS at www.topsknives.com/3-bros

Happy 20th Birthday TOPS Knives

TOPS Knives turns 20 years old today! That represents 20 years of continued relevance in a fickle market, 20 years of American (Idaho to be specific) manufacturing, and 20 years of great knives.

New from TOPS Knives: Camp Creek Knife

TOPS Knives just released the Camp Creek, their first production knife to use S35VN stainless steel. This knife appears to have a lot of great features including being ground from thin 1/8″ steel stock, a bull-nose skinner profile, and a kydex dangler sheath. The combination of tough S35VN steel, thin stock, and a tall flat primary grind should make this knife an excellent cutter.

From TOPS Knives:

Every year, TOPS’ President Leo Espinoza makes himself a knife for hunting season. Sometimes that knife ends up being a TOPS model. The Camp Creek is one of those. The goal with this model was to make a super high quality hunting/camp knife using materials that are uncommon for TOPS. Hence the use of CPM S35VN steel, 3 color camo G10 handles, and a stylish Kydex sheath with a leather dangler. The superior design, fit and finish, and material selection combine to form one of the best hunting knives ever to grace TOPS’ lineup.
