TOPS TIBO

Designed and Written by Brian Griffin

"BEING PASSIVE JUST DOESN’T GET YOU THROUGH"

If you spend enough time discussing knives the subject of “survival,” knives will inevitably pop up. Following that train of thought the opinion of “the best survival knife is the one you have on you” will always be expressed. There is a lot of truth in that statement in as much as the knife you carry the most is more likely to be the cutting tool you will have available should you encounter a survival situation, that is only logical. This is in essence the philosophy the TIBO was designed under after forty years of experience in wilderness travels and over a decade of intensive study in small knife use under various conditions in the wilds.

It is quite common that at the end of the journey, or on long breaks, that packs will be dropped and heavier equipment will be removed in order to allow the body the opportunity to rest and relax. At this moment the gear you have on your person will be the gear you have to work with while going about gathering fire wood, collecting water, or going about other business of setting camp. Should you become separated from the group or the camp, by what ever means, be it because of; a weather event, and encounter with a wild animal, disorientation, or a fall then the only tools you will have to work with will be what you have in your pockets or around your neck.

I designed the TIBO to perform as a back up knife in case of separation from primary gear. I designed it to be light enough not to be a burden so that keeping it handy was easy to do. I also designed the knife to be very functional in multiple roles in a wilderness environment whether opening freeze-dried meals, skinning game, scaling fish, or in fire craft. Beginning at the tip it has a distal taper and sharp point for ease of penetration in various materials, and tasks like removing splinters and boring small holes. It has 2.5-inch blade that is adequate for most common cutting task that will be encountered. It has a continuous-curve edge geometry and high grind for great slicing capability, but with a radius plunge and some steel left in the spine to increase strength and enhance durability in hard use. It has an ample handle that offers secure purchase which is skeletonized to minimize weight, but is reinforced in strategic locations for added strength. The texture on the handle and blade is also strategically placed to ensure a secure purchase in various overhand, underhand, and pinch-grip holds under whatever conditions may come. This offers the user a secure purchase even under the slick conditions of dealing with fat and talo encountered when skinning game, the oils encountered when scaling fish, or starting fire with muddy, cold, or fatigued hands even in muddy conditions.

The features that are built into this knife make it a very versatile tool, one that not only functions as a back-up neck knife but at 6.25-inches total length and 1.9 ounces it will serve very well as a stand-alone fixed blade for minimalist backpackers who count every gram as well . It is also well suited to being carried in a piggy-back role paired up with a larger knife, and it fits well in the utility pouch of the ballistic nylon sheaths that are supplied with many larger TOPS knives. If you are wanting a very functional and light-weight small knife, one that multitasks well in various roles and offers a secure grip in even very bad conditions then the TOPS TIBO was purpose-designed to meet your needs.

MOJO X2


TOPS HAS CARRY ALONG-REAL TIME SOLUTIONS

Mojo as defined by Wikipedia is a magical charm, which has been transmuted into a slang word for self-confidence, self-esteem, sex appealand generally used to describe good feelings.

Our own Leo Espinoza was inspired to create a small, light-weight, compact and practical tool/knife that he could carry with him all day and every day...even when he was out fishing or hunting for small game.

The MOJO X2 was tested in the shop and in the field. All the hands it went through, thought it was an easy to use, very practical knife. Moreover, it is enclosed with a multi-positional steel spring clip (for belt carry) and a neck chain (for an easy concealed carry under your shirt). Either way, it deploys easily.

Its flowing design enables a large number of uses (whether you have large or small hands) including: skinning, cleaning fish, general daily chores (from boxes to cord) and as a utility everyday user.


ALL-IN-ALL, A GREAT AND PRACTICAL DESIGN.

Testimonials:

“To whom it may concern:
Combat readiness, weapon selection, ease of use, are not just words to be used in the movies. On the battlefield when it really matters the words have meaning and save lives. These are the words I would also use to describe the best combatknife I have ever used, the MP4 Wolfhawk. The MP4 Wolfhawk mounts securely and effortlessly on the side of any rail system. The Wolfhawk mounted on the side of my M4, sits within easy reach, and within my field of vision. Understanding that seconds count, the MP4 Wolfhawk, helps complete the definition of combat readiness, weapon selection and ease of use.”
~Capt G. Birch U.S. Army, Infantry


To whom it may concern:
“We here at Quality Arms Idaho are always looking for new products to enhance the AR Platform. In our opinion the MP4 Wolfhawk Knife System for mounting on the Picatinny Rail for the AR is one such product. Not only is it made tough with its superior steel and construction, it is a US made product andthe quality is far superior to those cheap knock-offs. Being made in Idaho is another reason we at Quality Arms Idaho recognize Battle Blades, in conjunction with TOPS KNIVES, as a superior high quality manufacturer. We will be releasing the Battle Storm series of weapons shortly and the Battle Blades (Wolfhawk) Knife System will be prominent.”

Background Interview on Kelly Van Orden, Designer and Pres. of Battle Blades Knives: April 17, 2012

You can quickly see on close observation that Kelly has the look of a man that has lived his lived his life out-of-doors. In his case, the Rocky Mountains, USA.
His quiet manner may initially fool some; however, there lies behind this quiet demeanor, a man who has had a world of real action experiences.

Discussions with him over several weeks highlighted some very interesting parts of his almost 60 years. He is now a semi-retired rancher in the Rockies, and although not running a ranch at present, he spends a great deal of his time and energy developing his 'Battle Blades Project.'

Looking back several years, Kelly grew up in the mountains trapping, hunting, and fishing. As a young man, he adopted and trained wild mustangs (wild horses) and spent years as a wilderness guide running hunting, fishing, and pack trips. He helped various scouting groups when time permitted. Kelly is a pilot and he has spent time as a big game hunter with both rifle and bow. It is important to note...Knives always played an essential part of his daily life, regardless of the activities he was involved in.

A great influence on Kelly came from his father who fought in World War II at the Battle of the Bulge in an army machine gun squad. Kelly gained a great respect and admiration for the US military. Although Kelly did not have the resources to fund a wounded veteran type of foundation, he decided to put his 'Gun-nut hobby', coupled with his imagination to create a product that would directly benefit our military men and women in the field.

Looking through numerous gun magazines and owning several AR-15, M-4 type weapons of his own, it seemed to him that one could buy almost anything to mount on a Picatinny Rail, but not a knife!...AN ALL IMPORTANT BACKUP TOOL.

So he started building crude prototypes. He spent a great deal of time talking with and getting input from military friends. He was convinced that a need existed for a rail mounted combat and sporting knife.

Being the case that if a soldier or outdoorsman becomes separated from his equipment, on occasion, his knife would be gone also. With the Battle Blades system, as long as the has his primary weapon, he will also have a knife to help with a variety of situations that may arise.

With the encouragement of his wife, Kami, family and friends, he went forward with the 'Battle Blades Project.' Kelly had no experience in manufacturing and as a result, made several mistakes. He recently met Mike Fuller of TOPS Knives and through joint work and development, initiated the manufacturing process. Kelly just wasn't a quitter!

After showing his Prototype at the 2012 Shot Show, Kelly and Kami were able to introduce their new system. The reception for the Battle Blades System was most enthusiastic from military and outdoorsmen alike. Kelly and Kami are now ready to put their first model, the MP4 Wolfhawk out into the marketplace.

IDT (INDIVIDUAL DEMOLITION TOOL)

AKA:TOPS CRASH AXE

FOR GUYS THAT JUST DON’T GET INVITED TO PARTIES.

Crash axes were originally developed for emergency use for escaping from downed aircraft. Their use has certainly been extended to SWAT, Fire and Emergency services, as well as being a 'Door Opener' for military units operating searches and seizures in urban areas.

TOPS IDT has an extra heavy tactical head. By itself it weighs one pound, made of 3/8" thick 1095 tempered carbon tool steel. The head is attached to a special handle configuration to improve the momentum (power) of the chop or down stroke.

The tubular handle is made of chrome moly alloy (4130), considered stronger and lighter than steel. Chrome moly is like steel on steroids. It exhibits strength, toughness, and ductility.

To ensure a secure grip on the handle, TOPS has provided a large 8" grip area made of "Eezer foam." Manufactured through a patented proprietary process and unmatched in quality and durability. The smooth surface finish is non-slip under adverse conditions and is a high density shock absorber and insulator, with good abrasion resistance.

This is a tool applicable for many varied uses, including but not limited to.......serving high risk warrants, Fire and Rescue, SWAT, urban structure clearing, chopping through doors, walls, ceilings, and floor boards, and of course, dismantling barricades. Not much is going to slow this brute down!!!!!

An excellent addition to a 72 hour kit.

WHITE FANG WHITE FANG

WHITE FANG

RUGGED AND VERSITILE GOOD LOOKS


"A hardcore blade dressed in its Sunday best. Strong enough for survival, sexy enough for a hunter's banquet. The White Fang will put food on the table."
~Joe Flowers


There are a large number of individuals called hunters or sportsmen, who love searching, stalking and finally taking down their prey. Your own method of taking game may be a bow, a rifle, or a handgun. However, a really great hunting knife is probably the best field tool a hunter may have, not just for dressing the animal, but for cutting cord and general tasks around camp or in the field. A knife needs to be versitile and rugged, reliable and have a grip designed for extended, yet comfortable, use.

In TOPS' backyard, the Rocky Mountains contain a wide variety of big and small game; elk, deer, bear, turkey, quail, or squirrels, etc. There exist plenty of opportunities to use and test and refine our hunting knives.

TOPS "White Fang" is the culmination of months of testing and evaluation to come up with a great looking, well-functioning tool.

FORM MEETS FUNCTION TO DO REAL HARD WORK IN THE FIELD.

WILDERNESS GUIDE 4.0

SOME MEN TEMPER LIKE STEEL, THEY LEARN TO ENDURE

Going into the remote Wilderness on an expedition or a wilderness weekend or just shaking free of the world at large? This is backcountry living in the wild untamed awe-inspiring locations, it just heightens all our senses.

Nature is dominant, and situations are real-life, in real time. Living in these conditions can be fulfilling, with self-reliance a challenge and a positive attitude becomes a part of your everyday existence.

The World may hold the thought that the Wilderness is a place of great healing and inspiration. By definition, it is a wild and uncultivated region such as a forest or desert, uninhabited or inhabited by wild animals. Also defined as 'the most natural areas left on the planet without roads or industrial infrastructure.'

WHAT IS A WILDERNESS GUIDE?..

To some a rugged guy, who lives out in the Bush, or a person who loves being an active part of the outdoors, acquiring knowledge, sharing and preserving it.

The professionals with this knowledge are responsible for those persons that they guide: They anticipate potential problems, minimize the risk and prevent accidents, provide immediate medical attention if required, develop a comfort zone in nature.

This is combined with education and stewardship of remote areas, woods and waters.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR ‘WILDERNESS GUIDE KNIFE’

A result of long thought and substantial input from professional Outdoorsmen.

With some 16 million backpackers just in the USA, plus all the Mountain Bikers, Trekkers, Sea Kayakers, Climbers, and Survivalists...We realized that no one knife would do it for all. Therefore, this design is highly functional...using 1/8" thick, easy to re-sharpen 1095 High Carbon alloy.

It has an exceptionally wide blade (1 1/2") with a blade length of 4 1/2", and generally suits a wide variety of outdoor requirements.

Leo Espinoza designed a very functional handle that fits the hand well with excellent traction and a slight recurve at the back to keep the grip secure in wet conditions.

THIS IS A GREAT ADDITION TO THE GEAR OF ANY OUTDOOR GUIDE, BACKPACKER, OUTDOORSMAN, CAMPER AND “SEEKER OF SOLITUDE’...

USA MADE EMERGENCY WHISTLE (126 DB)
