TOPS Knives – Bartender Defender XL and a Look Back at 2016

TOPS Knives just rolled out their last new knife of 2016 – the Bartender Defender XL. This is a larger (but still very compact) version of their popular Bartender Defender. The new Bartender Defender XL features a comfortable skeletonized handle, a drop point blade shape, and a bottle opener in the spine of the knife.

TOPS also published a photo that shows all of the new knife models they rolled out in 2016. There were several major releases including the Vi Ax, Brakimo, CUT 4.0, and more. Along with this photo, TOPS is dropping hints about an even bigger 2017. A little birdy told me we may finally see the production version of the BOB folder. Visit booth #20401 at SHOT Show to see what’s in store from TOPS Knives.

TOPS Knives Idaho Hunter Snake River Edition

The Idaho Hunter is one of TOPS Knives most popular hunting knives. It is an all-around performer thanks to its full flat grind, sweeping drop point blade, and multiple hand positions.


The original version of the Idaho Hunter has a gray powder coat blade with gray micarta handles. This new Snake River Edition of the Idaho Hunter sports darkened black linen micarta handles and TOPS’ increasingly popular Black River Wash blade finish. The new linen micarta handle slabs provide plenty of grip but a smoother finish to prevent hot spots (for those marathon sessions when you buddies want you to dress out their deer too). The Black River Wash looks great and shows off the temper line from TOPS Knives’ differential heat treat.

Like the original version, the TOPS Knives Idaho Hunter Snake River Edition is ground from trusted 1095 steel and comes with a kydex sheath. You can view full specs and purchase at an introductory price at TOPSKnives.com.

Customize a TOPS Knives HOG 4.5

The TOPS Knives HOG 4.5 is one of the best all-around field knives that TOPS makes. What if you could choose your own handle color, choose your own sheath design, add cool features like fire steels or pouches, and support a veterans charity when you bought one? That would make a great knife even better.


That is exactly what Red Hill Sheaths and TOPS Knives have set out to do. You can order a HOG 4.5 through Red Hill Sheaths and choose all the above options. You are basically starting with a bare blade with TOPS Knives great looking Black River Wash finish as your blank canvas! Red Hill Sheaths will then fit the knife with the handles you choose, custom form your sheath, provide any of the add-ons that you choose, and then donate $10 to Hope for the Warriors for each knife sold.
