VIPER SCOUT RED

 

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"...

FDX 66

The popular class of FDX (Field Duty Xtreme) Knives manufactured by TOPS has stimulated requests that we have received on numerous occasions to develop a smaller tool, with a wide blade, good cutting edge and the capability to pierce. This engaging tool was named after the very popular “Route 66” one of the first primary highways cutting its way across the USA,  the subject of several songs, and the “Route 66”  T.V. program, with a wide variety of adventures in the series.

 

The tool itself was designed to have an enhanced cutting edge (lots of surface edge) and a solid piercing point.

 
The fact that the tool is designed out of 1095 high carbon steel that is 1/8” thick, enables the carrier of the FDX 66 to keep it placed close to the body for concealment, if necessary, and yet easily available. It has a skeletonized handle to keep the weight minimal, but provides excellent traction. The index finger cutout ensures a safe and secure grip while being used.  The blade and handle are covered with a coyote tan finish to protect the steel from the elements.

 
The high quality leather sheath (100% US Steer hide), keeps the tool in a position that enables the user to draw it from either the vertical or horizontal positions.

 
The combination of a quality designed and well-executed tool, provides the user with a variety of utilitarian options as an EDC or should the situation warrant it,  the ability for a close-in personal protection tool, (highly concealable).

 
The FDX 66 is versatile-rugged-simple-and-good-lookin’

"This tool is definitely a highly qualified silent companion, ever ready."

Tex Creek Hunter 

“when its time to go and get some!” 

Tex creek a tribute to the men and women who hunt and fish in the Tex creek area in Southeast, Idaho. 

The wildlife management area which includes 2 national forests, is home to an abundance of diverse wildlife and is accessible starting about 10 miles from the TOPS shop facility. Open range, high rugged mountains, waterways and large forests provide the hunter and fisherman a variety of diverse terrain to acquire:  elk, bear, mountain lion, wolf, moose, pheasant, turkey, quail, rabbit, duck, goose, steelhead and salmon. 

The fact that this Tex creek area is so close to us, enables our designers and makers the ability to field test in their own backyard. Since many of our staff grew up in this setting, they have ample opportunity to evaluate the use of our knives/tools under the most adverse conditions. 
The Tex Creek Hunter is a fine example of a high quality, good looking “working knife.” 

The designer, Leo Espinoza, created a new look on this specific blade. At tops, we call it “Black River Wash’. The uncoated finish clearly shows the heat treat line along the blade edge. The darkened-steel pattern is unique on every blade. This creates that “broken in, rustic look” and feels just like an old pair of comfortable boots. The darkened Micarta scales are screwed onto the handle and a large cord holder is accentuated at the back of the handle. The handles are designed and built for a positive grip and for extended periods of use. A simple and useable design is reinforced by a sturdy 3/16” thick blade and full tang handle. 

"This is a knife that performs with excellence in the field and looks and feels like an old trusted friend, anywhere that you go."


Where does the name black river wash come from?: According to wiki… 
The Black River is a 125 mile long (201 km) ‘Black-water River’ that empties into the Eastern end of Lake Ontario. The river’s source is various locations in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The origin of the name is not clear, but it may stem from the natural Tannic Acid that darkens the water in various places.

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.

 

Dateline: Survival author Dan Shectman Tactical Knives Magazine.

 

"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"

F.A.X.  FAST AXE 2*** 

(GO ANYWHERE VERSATILITY)

 

For many years our good friend, Allen “The Axe man” Jensen, has designed and developed tools for his outdoor ventures. He is a Scout leader, knife and axe designer, and has spent a great deal of time in the outdoors working with members of the BLM, Forest Service, and Hot Shot crews (highly trained wild land firefighters). With his practical engineering background (AKA MacGyver), he uses the information he gathers, digests and analyzes it, to perfect his field tools.

 

His creation known as the F.A.X. or FAST AXE is a lightweight alternative for campers, hikers, or trekkers. The FAST AXE’s head, with its wide cutting edge made of 1095 High Carbon alloy, takes a good deep bite when taking down light wood, taking an animal apart, making tent poles, firewood, or doing a host of other camp chores.

 

It has a Chrome-Molly alloy (4130) tubular handle and the head is pressed and pinned deeply into this handle. The combination exhibits strength and ductility.

An 8” long EEZER foam grip ensures a solid nonslip grip for the most rugged situations. This is manufactured through a patented proprietary process and is unmatched in quality and durability.

 

A Kydex “snap on cover” protects the edge of the blade and has a steel spring clip for easy belt attachment.

 

…THE TOPS FAST AXE MAKES A GREAT COMPANION FOR INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP USE…

 

***Allen Jensen is also known for creating the ‘FIREMAN’S BACKUP’ which was featured on the cover of Blade Magazine SEPT 2007, and for designing a multitude of other great tools.

MACHETE .170

MADE IN THE USA!

WHEN IT’S TIME TO GO HOT     …TOPS MACHETE .170…

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, and now by very popular request, a smaller version to use with virtually the same capabilities the same handle and a 10”inch blade, the Machete .170.

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

To complement the unique point on the blade and handle design, we custom built a ballistic nylon sheath with 1 separate (flap and buckle closure) accessory pocket. This pocket 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 .170 will be a powerful and useful companion.
