New from TOPS Knives: C.U.T. 4.0

The new TOPS CUT 4.0 looks like it might be one of the few knives that can successfully bridge the gap between a reasonable effective karambit and a practical, general-purpose knife. That is exactly what designer Joshua Swanagon was hoping to accomplish.

Having a martial arts background, Joshua Swanagon has done some training with the karambit and is a fan of ring style knives and their prowess in combative applications. However, also being an avid outdoorsman, he has found them to be less than ideal as field utility blades. So he set out to make a knife that could combine those disciplines and decided to call it the C.U.T. 4.0 (Combat Utility Tool).

Those of you who keep an eye on TOPS Knives will notice that the sheath is a departure from their usual kydex-with-a-clip designs. This kydex sheath features two soft loops that allow the sheath to be mounted a number of ways including horizontally on the belt with the handle in toward the centerline. This carry method makes it easy to draw the knife wit either hand in a very compact space.

Even if you never use the karambit functionality of this knife, you’ll appreciate the versatile blade shape and practical size. Check out the new CUT 4.0 at TOPS Knives.
