TOPS Knives just released two new designs. The Bull Trout and Nata are both knives that we’ve seen before at trade shows but they are finally available for purchase.
The Bull Trout is a result of TOPS 3rd annual contest where employees are encouraged to design a knife that will be put into production if chosen. This year the winner was Martin Murillo for his EDC fixed-blade design. Martin is an avid fisherman, so the Bull Trout had to excel at that. It’s got comfortable burlap Micarta handles with a stainless 154cm blade and a simple, classic chocolate leather sheath. But you don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy this knife. It’s just a great all-around EDC blade.

Many useful tools have come from the Japanese over the years. The Nata (hatchet) is one that hasn’t received as much attention as some others, but is an excellent tool nonetheless. The TOPS Nata is Leo Espinoza’s take on a very old gardening tool. The handle and grind have been changed from traditional designs to fit TOPS/Leo’s style. It’s also full tang with grippy burlap Micarta handles and a nice leather belt sheath. Have brush that needs cleared, branches that need pruned, or are you just in the market for a small chopper with an interesting design? The Nata might just be your next tool.
