XcEST-DELTA BE PREPARED...NOW!

...CAUSE THEIR AIN’T NO TOMORROW...

In the most challenging environments, the most difficult situations--TOPS has carry-along, real-time solutions.

Behind the tool: the success of our original XcEST-Alpha (Fixed Blade) was very positive in its performance for field operators. TOPS received a wide range of "thumbs-up" critiques. So much so, that we listened to our client's new requests.
There was a strong demand for the same strength, durability, and functionality of the XcEST in a solid-built folder.

It has taken a good year to refine, tweak, and field test our newest addition, the XcEST-Delta. With its rugged good looks, accompanying its multi-use field abilities. it is a virtual replica in size and strength to the XcEST-Alpha (Fixed Blade).

The blade and frame are coated with our trusted black traction coating, and the handle slabs are made of hard wearing and good looking blue/black G10. The handles are complimented with a divot on both sides, should the user require it for use with a bow drill.

The heavy-duty pocket clip is recessed in the handles to avoiding the possibility of sliding from side and is reversible (left or right side). For those of you who wish to use it with the accompanying black ballistic nylon sheath, it may be mounted horizontally or vertically on a belt and is MOLLE compatible.

The pivot pin is 1/4" diameter case-hardened steel. The frame is aircraft aluminum 6061 T-6. The blade steel is N690C, hardened to 58-60 RC. The pocket clip is hardened tool steel.

All-in-all, this is just like a pocket-sized D-9 tractor. Overbuilt to ensure performance, this tool is not for everyone. Suggested use for professional outdoorsmen, military/SWAT operators, and SAR.

THIS IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL’S PARTNER!

Second Knife Review

Review by Luke Causey

TOPS LITE TREKKER (TRAVELIN’ LITE ... AND DOIN’ IT RIGHT)

In recent years, there had been a surge in outdoor activities; trekkers, backpackers, survivalists, preppers, and numerous other like-minded individuals, developing their skills and using their tools to develop a real sense of self-reliance.

In these uncertain times, it is definitely wise to have some kind of light tool with you, regardless of whether you are going "off grid" for the weekend or adding this knife to your Bug-Out-Bag.

We feel that the two most important factors regarding the tool/gear is #1--Effective and #2--As light and strong as possible for the given task. These are the primary factors we considered in the design of this tool. Equally adept in urban settings or in the wild, this is definitely an "ounce-counter's" dream. In addition, the ability to quickly spot your knife on the ground or in the bush, is a definite positive when selecting one of the neon handle options.

TOPS LITE TREKKER is the culmination of several months of designing and refining. At the recent Blade Show, Joe (Shangoman) Flowers; his wife, Ashley; and Leo (the Lion) Espinoza, put their heads together on a new joint collaboration to design a light, durable, and functional tool. We have already seen their combined field time and design experience come through on some winning models. The best recent example is the Machete .230...An excellent field tool with a great performance record.

After numerous revisions, the TOPS LITE TREKKER has several, well-thought-out features such as a positive grip with optional colored (traction and high-visibility squares) set into the handle design. When selecting one of the neon versions, the textured handle includes a neon cord matching the choice of colored squares.

The blade grind is flat ground to the top edge of the blade for the sharpest and lightest combination in its size class.

This tool comes with a 3 rod fire-starter and 126 DB emergency whistle. Wherever your travels take you or what surprises come your way, you can feel comfortable with the capabilities of...

the TOPS LITE TREKKER.

CUMA HISS CUMA HISS

Discontinued Item, Very Limited STOCK!

Price:$70.00

DESIGNED AND WRITTEN BY : WAYSUN JOHNNY TSAI

The CUMA HISS (High Speed Sentry) Urban ESCAPE knife:

es�cape [ i sk�yp ]

1.Break free from captivity: to get free from captivity or confinement
2.Avoid bad situation: to avoid danger, harm, or involvement in an unpleasant situation


The CUMA HISS, designed to help its users break free and ESCAPE from everyday confinements.


ESCAPE: Unjust knife laws with an EDC that is small enough to be legally carried, daily, just about everywhere.


ESCAPE: Feeling completely unarmed for daily tasks when you NEED a knife.

ESCAPE: From being noticed with a knife that is thin enough to easily be concealed under a lightweight T-shirt.

ESCAPE: The ordinary with The CUMA HISS, a high speed, lightweight, razor sharp Urban Self Defense tool that is as useful cutting fruit as it is the bad guy.

"When I was sketching up the CUMA HISS, I wasn't sure how big I wanted to make it. I had already realeased two popular knife designs with TOPS, but both of those designs were a wee bit too much for the average city dweller to carry around on his/her belt without gaining a bit of unwanted attention. So I decided to go with the neck knife format.

I wanted the HISS to be thin enough so it could be easily conceled under a shirt and I wanted it lightweight because I hate having heavy things hanging off of my neck. So I skeletonized the design.

Being a combatives instructor, I wanted a time proven razor sharp edge on it so I went witha Wharncliff blade, I clipped the tip down to add durability.

Seeing that I consider a neck knife to be a last ditch self defense tool, I wanted the grip to be comfortable in both forward and reverse grips. I angled the butt of the handle so a thumb could feel just right wrapping across the top.

Because I have an evergrowing love and appreciation for the outdoors, I added a little fire steel notch. You Bushcraft guys are always on my mind!

I had fun designing the CUMA HISS and am proud to see it made by TOPS KNIVES...I know that once you have it it will serve you well for years to come. I wear mine every day.

Oh, one more thing...THE CUMA HISS is now the OFFICIAL Knife of the GI JOE Dreadnok Enemy ZARTAN. You can see Zartan knife fighting Snake Eyes with it on the cover of the IDW Gi Joe Comic Book: SNAKE EYES AND STORMSHADOW issue #15."

ESCAPE: REALITY for 15 minutes a day and enjoy a Comic Book like Snake Eyes and Stormshadow...You will be glad you did!

VIPER SCOUT 4.0

IN THE MOST CHALLENGING SITUATIONS
TOPS Knives started many years ago in the heart of the Rocky Mountains: living, playing, and working in this incredible outdoor paradise.

TOPS’ earlier years were specifically oriented toward tools for Special Operations (both military and law enforcement) or for Survival.

Our growing clientele has requested that we develop a lighter and functional series of knives oriented to Hunters, Backpackers, Campers, Trekkers, Hikers, Bikers, and Preppers.
Their needs led to new designs with thinner but often wider blades to keep inherent strength and with unique handle configurations to assist with a secure grip in all situations.

This is the story behind the design and development of the Viper Scout. Don’t be fooled by its abundant good looks. This knife performs proficiently in the field...just like it was born and raised there!

The 1/8” thick 1095 blade is wider than your average knife, ensuring inherent strength. “Leo,” the designer, incorporated his newest version of the now, well-known Rocky Mountain Tread.

The knife sits comfortably in most hands. A 100% leather sheath, made right here in Idaho Falls, carries the knife close to the body with an easily accessible draw.




A GOOD LOOKIN’, FUNCTIONAL, TRUSTWORTHY, COMPANION
...FOR GUYS WHO GO "OFF THE GRID"...

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.
