In an article appearing in the "Sportsman's Gazette" July 2002, the article stated:
"One of the most cherished personal effects a soldier will have is a high quality, custom or semi custom knife. TOPS of Idaho Falls have become extremely popular with those rough men who allow us all to sleep soundly".
TOPS's Models are currently deployed with U.S. forces around the globe. Shown in the picture is the TOPS 'Moccasin Ranger'. Named in honor of the famed Cherokee Moccasin Rangers of World War II.
The design and strength of character and performance of this knife has made it a regular and popular choice among hard core individuals for many years... proven reliability.
