CUMA TAK-RI 2

HAND OPERATED POWER TOOL

Introducing the CUMA TAK-RI (Tactical Kukri) fixed combat/sportsman/survival/camp knife with FULL Woodsman-Style handles.


Written by: Waysun Johnny Tsai

The CUMA TAK-RI is not your a-typical kukri with a tactical spin on it. In fact, one must understand what a Gurkha Kukri is to see the curve in it's blade.
The kukri (Devnagari/ खुकुरी) (originally spelled khukri or khukuri) is a curved Nepalese Knife used as both a tool and as a weapon. It is a traditional weapon for Nepalese people, and also a weapon of choice/side arm for all Nepalese including those serving in different armies around the world.

The word Tactical translates into practical functionality, especially among millitary and law enforcement. That was the thought going into the knife's design. The CUMA Tactical Street Defense program was created by world renowned CQC expert Sijo Waysun Johnny Tsai in 2000. As of date, SiJo has over 31 years in the martial arts along with 25 years experience as an instructor. He wanted to create what he considered to be a truly functional knife that could be used for CQTcombat, street defense along with being an all around TOOL for the Outdoor Sportsman.

A few others helped along the way offering expert advice to ensure TOP performance of this blade.
Those experts include TOPS KNIVES founder/owner; Mr. Mike Fuller as well as the creator of the BESH WEDGE; Mr. Brent Beshara (BESH gave the knife it's name!).

A few things were mandatory for the blade: It had to be built strong and durable, so he approached TOPS KNIVES to make it. It's full tang frame is built out of 1095 high carbon steel with a thin strip of black linen micarta handle for weight reduction. At just 3/16" in thickness, this is one wickedly fast blade. The belly of the blade is deep for chopping firewood and shelter building.

It needed to have a large curved primary bottom edge, a partial top edge (for reverse swings) and what Sijo calls his "SHARK TEETH Serrations" serration for blocking, ripping and tearing bush, cord or anything that gets in it's way. The handle had to offer two types of grip options "long grip" for full extended machete swings as well as a choked up grip for precision cuts or carving. AND finally, a small pry for scraping and lanyard hole at the butt of the handle. Mr. Mike Fuller has stated that the CUMA TAK-RI is extremely interesting and no other knife in the extensive TOPS catalog is quite like it.

Once you hold the CUMA TAK-RI you will immediately agree that it is truly "Hard To The Core". In Fact, the TAK-RI caused such a buzz at the 2011 SHOT Show that Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) pre-ordered his from the Tops Knives booth.

The CUMA TAK-RI can also be seen in IDW Publishing's ongoing G.I. JOE comic book series "SNAKE EYES". Comic book artist Robert Atkins selected the TAK-RI as the SERIES EXCLUSIVE knife for the most Iconic Ninja of all time. Snake Eyes can be seen slashing Cobra troops starting in issue #2 which hits comic book shops worldwide in June of 2011. The CUMA TAK-RI is also featured on the cover of issue #6 of Snake Eyes.

Full sized CUMA TAK-RI aluminum training knives were used for months during class and in seminars for R&D prior to making the first steel prototype. USA made aluminum training blades along with a new instructional DVD entitled "CUMA EDGED WEAPON TRAINING" will be available through this website Summer of 2011. The proto-type is anodized Law Enforcement blue and has a thin handle strip on it, it is an excellent replica of the CUMA TAK-RI and training tool for any knife fighting system. It can be seen here.

SHADOW TRACKER 2
YOU CAN RUN...BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE!

Several years ago, Ralp Morz, a veteran writer for Tactical Knives magazine, had the opportunity to test and evaluate the original Shadow Tracker. He had this to say:

"The 'Shadow Tracker' is a beefy, compact knife...in the hand this knife feels like a bulldog straining on a leash--it wants to do something...

The TOPS rotating sheath system is a Godsend, in that the knife can be oriented to carry comfortably no matter what you are doing; walking, crawling, slithering, or just lying in wait, or seated in a vehicle."

"If you have an outdoor job of any kind--from mundane to gut-wrenching to be done in any environment, from tropical rain forest to Middle East deserts,TOPS makes a knife for you!"

Our Shadow Tracker 2, is the same high performance steel (154cm), the same size with a flat grind and new comfort fit handle design.

Good clean lines and a powerful, trustworthy companion.

Steel Eagle 107C XX

Over 15 continual years in the field, in every terrain and in all conditions, the Steel Eagles have proven their strength, durability, versatility and dependability within the Special Operations community. The 107C XX brings an innovative new idea for a back-up knife to give the real Field Operators another option when they need it. The Mini Eagle is hidden INSIDE the handle of the Steel Eagle and is great for smaller cutting tasks that don't require a 7 inch blade, but also as a last resort. Over the years, the Steel Eagle series of knives continues to be a favorite “Personal Carry Choice” of the “Quiet Professionals.”

Should the need arise, a small, strong, and sharp knife is available to discretely pull out (deploy) quickly and easily. The MINI ALRT has enough of an edge to do small work or possibly assist in a defensive situation.

The snap closure holds a good number of $$$, it folds up, and holds cash securely in place. The knife is mounted immediately on the back of the wallet and holds securely and comfortably onto your belt.

...BE IT AT WORK OR PLAY... THIS IS A HANDY PIECE OF WORK...WALLET / KNIFE / AND HIDE-A-WAY.

Review by Brian Griffin

...NO MATTER WHAT !

For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has long been a knife of choice for the "Outdoor Working People." The Machete is used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores...It is also a popular weapon of choice is rural uprisings.

At TOPS, we have had numerous requests from clientele to produce a light, fast, practical and general use blade in conjunction with an enlarged comfortable working handle...A Machete...made entirely in the USA

Our good friend and well-known designer, outdoorsman and writer, Joe "Shangoman" Flowers, collaborated with TOPS shop manager, Leo "The Lion" Espinoza on the design for a new machete. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability. The MACHETE .230 was born.

Vigorous testing in a wide variety of terrains has proved the Machete's superior field performance.

To compliment the unique point on the blade and handle design, we custom built a ballistic nylon sheath with 2 separate (flap and buckle closure) accessory pockets. These pockets can hold an array of small tools--sharpener, compass, etc.--easily accessible.

Whether you are a SURVIVOR, CAMPER, KAYAKER, EXPLORER, or just a "JUNGLE KIND OF GUY, " the MACHETE .230 will be a powerful and useful companion.

TOPS NOMENCLATURE (TURL-23)

R U PREPARED?

Designed by: Terry Barney former U.S.A.F. S.E.R.E Instructor (now called S.E.R.E. specialist)and owner of Midwest School of Bushcraft. Terry worked closely with Iz to bring his idea to a working reality. He is also the creator of free woodsman classes at www.bushcraftusa.com

BACKGROUND: My name is Israel Turley, (friends call me Iz)...I’m a full time knife maker from Missouri the (Show me State). I specialize in hard-use woodsman’s knives. My method is to make those knives is to be first: a woodsman, and second a knife-maker, which I believe produces a better tool for the end user.

Knife making is a passion of mine, and I have been fortunate to be making knives for the last five years. I’m blessed being able to make a living at it, but the Woods do hold a special allure for me. I prefer going to woods over going to a knife show any day even though I love knives.

I have a wonderful family that supports me in my endeavor to do a job that’s not exactly common these days and most times not practical. My wife has been gracious enough to put up with me working in the shop most all day, then coming in and talking on the phone, answering emails and working on the website the rest of the night.

I always heard that when you start a small business, that you live that business almost twenty four hours a day, they weren’t lying. But I love every minute of it, and I am fortunate that I receive good quality feedback from my customers and always strive to improve my designs.

God has allowed me to do something that gives me a productive purpose and to see people excited about using the knives that I make, well that’s a humbling and rewarding experience for me. The positive feedback from my customers motivates me every day, to get in the shop and get at it.

Many of my customers have become good and lasting friends of mine. That is one of the most rewarding and surprising gifts that knife making has given me. If, God forbid, I never made another knife it would have all been worth it just to become friends with the people I have. Those friendships will last long after anything else I could ever make.

When Mike contacted me about possibly working with TOPS, I was pretty excited to say the least. After talking with him for a while I knew this was the right way to go.

I’ve had dealings in both the knife and survival industries and most of the big name guys I’ve ran into aren’t anything like Mike. He’s a straight shooter, tells it like it is and leaves it at that. On top of that he’s accommodating to the little guy’s needs such as myself.

He doesn’t have to be but he is, that’s something very rare these days. That’s the reason why I chose to go with TOPS Knives. Mike Fuller is a prince of a guy. Of course having several buddies that use TOPS Knives and seeing what they put them through didn’t hurt either.

Thanks for your time and I hope you like what Mike and I are coming up with. If you’re interested then please keep your eyes on the TOPS Knives website for future possible Joint Adventures between TOPS and Turley knives. I sincerely appreciate your support very much.

God bless,
Iz

...POSITIVE INFLUENCE OF STRONG BROTHERS...

Review by Tim Stetzer: click here.

The Fieldcraft Knife was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focusing on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over.

The Fieldcraft Knife is the culmination of their knowledge, combining experiences from; the broad and humid rain forests, the arid and scorpion-littered deserts, and the frigid northern lands that span the Americas.

The knife is 10 inches long in total, with a blade length of 4 1/2 inches. This makes a compact, but extremely serviceable knife. The Fieldcraft's blade is 3/16" thick, and made of 1095 High Carbon steel. The cutting edge is a modified Scandinavian Grind, which is very effective for carving, skinning and other general woods work. With a rockwell hardness of 56-58, the ease of sharpening is astounding. That is if you ever get to sharpen the blade. As the hardness and edge geometry work beautifully together to make a long lasting edge.

The handle is one of the most ergonomic ones on the market, sporting several useful additions. Although knives with a lot of frills often end up lacking, the additional items found on the Fieldcraft knife were selected from experience and critiqued in every step of design, development and production. Being made of canvas micarta, the handle will never let you down. The bow drill divot on the handle is frictionless and makes starting those primitive fires almost effortless. The "Thumb Scallops", formed on the hilt of the handle offer more comfort and control when using specialized carving and skinning grips. The pommel of the blade is simply the tang of the knife exposed enough to allow impact from a baton to not effect the handle (though the micarta is definitely tough enough to take such abuse). On the exposed pommel, you will find a scraper specially designed by one of The Brothers of Bushcraft, for striking Ferro rods in a safe and efficient manner.

The sheath is a strong, durable Kydex, with a steel belt clip. This arrangement allows a safe, secure and comfortable carry on the belt, pack strap, or even around the neck. With a built in Ferro-rod attachment point, the sheath now doubles as a minimalist survival kit.

The Fieldcraft knife has had heavy duty abuse, and testing done in the wilderness of Canada, where local survival experts Mors Kochanski, Dr. Gino Ferri, and many others have deemed her a "Serviceable Field Knife". These words are exactly what she is meant to be.

From carving netting needles and trap triggers, to chopping through branches, the TOPS Knives/Brothers of Bushcraft Fielcraft Knife will do just about any chore that you can throw at her in a wilderness survival scenario.
