TOPS Knives has released two new models – The Trail Seeker and the Storm Vector. Both of these knives have interesting backstories. The Trail Seeker is the latest knife to come out of their employee design competition, a competition that has already produced other successful designs. The Storm Vector is based on the history-rich, Viking Seax with a dash of modern reinterpretation.
The Trail Seeker is a product of TOPS’ 4th employee contest to design a knife to be put into production. This year, it was Luis Murillo, who is the Kydex manager at TOPS. His inspiration for the design was as simple as it gets. Make sure it has a comfortable handle – with a bit of a guard and a nice swell – a simple, effective blade design with a good pointy tip, and a Kydex sheath that makes it easy to wear the knife on your hip every day. Get yours today and you’ll see that he nailed it.

Just like Grandpa always had his trusty pocketknife handy, the same can be said for the Vikings and their Seax. With a blade that is over a foot long and a ¼ inch thick, the Storm Vector is capable of handling anything from small tasks around camp, to clearing brush on the back 40. This “broken back” style Seax is sure to make light work of whatever you bring it up against.
Although not very practical for EDC nowadays, during the Viking Age you never would have left home without it.
