HIGH DESERT HARPOON
Terrill Hoffman is an International Hunter, Photographer, outdoor writer and Founder of "PWYP" Practice What You Preach, the Outdoor Survival Outings.
Terrill has been a good friend to TOPS for some 12 years, always with a good word or deed and inevitably with great photographs. For a number of years TOPS has been fortunate enough to work with Terrill on his now famous Hoffman Harpoon in an assortment of practical sizes. In June of this year, at the Blade Show, we unveiled his latest hard use, good looking project called "THE HOFFMAN HIGH DESERT HARPOON XL". The size and specs are virtually the same, however, the newest innovation has affixed to the Harpoon a beautiful set of Micarta handles with easy access brass screws which make the handles removable. Although it is very pleasing to the eye, the strong sharp features stand out. Numerous tests have shown that this is truly a workhorse of a tool. It is coated with a very durable powder coat, the color being Coyote Tan, over a 1095 High Carbon Steel tool. Whether you are into short treks, long trips, or any other outdoor activity, this could be the perfect highly dependable companion and operates equally well with or without gloves on.

"The New 'TOPS/Hoffman harpoon 'offers a unique multi purpose survival tool much like those carried by the stone age hunters."
"The Hoffman harpoon is a useful piece of survival cutlery, worn in its neck sheath, it is always with you. Crafted from quality steel and comfortable to use, it fills the niche the small knife occupies in the woodsman's kit. The Hoffman harpoon is reminiscent of that earlier time when every tool had to be a multi tool"
