Two New Knives from TOPS Knives – The A-Klub and Poker

TOPS Knives just released their two newest knives for 2019. Both have interesting stories behind their designers. The Poker is designed by TOPS Knives’ General Manager and the A-Klub is the first TOPS knife designed by a woman.

A Curious Combination of Kiridashi and Karambit

Loosely based on a kiridashi, TOPS’ GM Craig designed the TOPS Poker as a sort of last-resort self-defense knife that will also excel as a general-purpose EDC knife. Craig came up with the idea after making a kiridashi by hand in his spare time. Holding the finished knife, it became apparent it would also make an excellent tool for self-defense, so the design was modified to include a finger ring. You’ll find regardless of the reason you choose to carry the Poker, it will be up to the task.

First Female Designed TOPS Knife

TOPS is known for a few things: differentially heat treated 1095 blades, over-built unique designs, and working with outside designers (among other things). This knife hits all of those categories, and is also the first to be released by TOPS that was actually designed by a woman. Amanda Kaye is probably best known for having appeared on Naked and Afraid. She is no stranger to hard work having grown up hunting and learning Native American survival skills. The A-Klub was even designed based off of influences from Native American war clubs.
