TOPS Knives: Tac-Raze 2

TOPS first friction folder design now has a second blade shape available. Leo wanted the Tac-Raze to fill two purposes specifically. It had to be a good-looking gentleman’s EDC that could be carried and used in public, and it had to be a functional tool. To accomplish those needs, he started with simple shapes and added curves in all the right places. Even the sheath is stylish, but also gives the wearer a variety of carry options.

It’s not just about looks though. This knife will perform everyday tasks quickly and easily, such as opening packages, cutting down boxes, cutting rope, etc. The Tac-Raze is also a devastating slasher. It never hurts to have that last line of defense. It comes with good-looking Green Canvas Micarta handles, TOPS’ famous Black River Wash finished 1095 with TOPS’ “signature” differential heat treat. The strong brown leather sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally on a belt for ease of carry whether open or concealed.

New from TOPS Knives: Earth Skills Knives

The Earth Skills Knife was designed by Matt Graham, who is much more than just a “survivalist”. He is an athlete – ultra-marathons, triathlons, rock climbing, etc., a martial artist – several styles, and an expert in primitive weapons, hunting, and shelters. He has more “dirt time” than almost anyone else out there.

In keeping with the same theme as his first design through TOPS (the Little Bugger). It’s thin with TOPS’; modified Scandi grind, a tumble finish and tan canvas Micarta handle scales. This one comes with a deep carry brown leather sheath that Matt designed based off some old Native American styles of sheath. It is meant to ride cross-draw, underneath the belt, towards the back side of the wearer.

Please keep in mind, the stock of this tool is 1/8″ thick. Therefore, uses like batoning are not recommended and bent blades due to that type of use will not be covered under the warranty. It is meant for the types of uses you would normally get from a machete.
