Frog Market Special

We have been working on this knife for a few months now and wanted to make sure that it was just right before deciding to make it available to everyone. A thickness of only 1/16th of an inch (1.5875 mm) makes this knife the thinnest knife we have offered so far. The blade is 5 and a quarter inches (13.335 cm) long and it has an overall length of 9 and a half inches (24.13 cm). It weighs just 3.5 ounces (99.2233 gr) yet it is still a strong knife.

The FROG MARKET SPECIAL is made of 1095 High Carbon Steel, and has Tan Canvas Micarta scales. It has our new Black River Wash finish that is quickly becoming one of the most popular finishes that we have ever offered. The wide heel allows for deep, shearing cuts. The steep curve up to the edge slices well. As you use the knife, you’ll notice it has an ergonomic handle that is very comfortable. The thinner steel allows for clean, smooth cuts and gives the blade some added flexibility over thicker knives. The tip is also ideal for boning meats like chicken and pork. Although the Frog Market Special is great in the kitchen, you’ll find a myriad of uses for it while camping, fishing, and hunting as well.

Steven Dick, who is an editor with Tactical Knives, refined this design based on what he saw on a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam. He saw butchers and fish mongers using knives with a pattern that he’d never seen before. They were able to prepare meats and fish of many varieties easily using their unique blades. But rest assured, although the inspiration for the Frog Market Special comes from the markets in Vietnam, the KNIVES are still manufactured and hand-finished right here in the Rocky Mountains USA.

MIL-SPIE 3.5 (Coyote Tan)

TOPS KNIVES is often approached by individual OPERATORS who advise us of their ideas and the criteria that needed to be met for their Unit or Team. This particular challenge was to develop a small knife with a fairly narrow carrying profile, and it had to be strong and light in weight. With these criteria in mind, we created and named the Mil-SPIE Knives. The successes of the MIL SPIE 3, THE MIL SPIE 5, and the MIL SPIE 3.5 folder have prompted us to give this knife an updated color. If you’re looking for an option other than black, the Coyote Tan coating has arrived as yet another great EDC option.

This folder is still a combination of rugged good looks, lightweight steel, a secure grip, a great working blade, and a sturdy clip attachment.

All in all, a positive carry for a wide variety of tasks.

Background:
The name Mil-SPIE is an acronym that the DOD came up with several years ago. It stands for (Military-Special Projects Individual Equipment) pronounced ‘MIL SPY’. This was to enable Special Operation Forces within the Military to help develop, test, evaluate and acquire 'out of the ordinary' and' outside of normal channels' items that they require.

MINI SCANDI KNIFE 2.5 Green/Black G-10 MINI SCANDI KNIFE 2.5 Green/Black G-10

*The Perfect Companion*
Pair today with the TOPS B.O.B knife.

Price:$99.95

MINI SCANDI KNIFE Green/Black G-10

Originally designed from the Finnish sami knife, used by the Laplanders for all their hunting and bushcraft tasks. These knives have traditionally been flat ground, single or double sided, with a "zero-ground" edge--ground to the edge.

It occurred to TOPS that a good idea is still a good idea in a smaller package. The "Mini Scandi" was a result of the very popular, original Brothers of Bushcraft (BROS-01) knife.
It offers all the advantages of a modified Scandi grind (10 degrees) in a neck/small sheath knife, just more concealable.

All of the cutting ability of a larger Scandi that can also fit in your pocket or pack.

SILENT HERO

The Silent Hero was designed by Anton Du Plessis, who is the Chief of Operations for the Specialized Interdiction Unit of the Silent Heroes Foundation. His task is to combat the poaching crisis in South Africa. This knife has to be durable, versatile, and able to fill Anton’s needs in the field, which affected the design of the blade and the handle. It will definitely hold up to hard use. And with a weight of only 12oz., you’ll be able to use the knife without getting fatigued too quickly.

You’ll notice there is a lanyard hole in the handle along with another in the finger guard. This is meant to allow the user to add a safety cord in order to improve the grip on the handle, which already allows for a solid grip. The finger-guard hole can also be used to assist in lashing to a spear when the situation warrants it.

There is a finger choil up into the blade to give you the ability to choke up and execute precise, fine cuts. The drop point design makes this knife great for slicing and gives the tip extra strength. So this knife will be a great knife for bushcraft, survival, and tactical purposes.

The black leather sheath is durable and looks great paired with this knife. The Silent Hero is held in place with a single snap loop that curls around the finger guard.

The Silent Hero is a great design that lends to a very versatile blade. It is not so large that it can only be used to chop, but is also still big enough to complete most of the tasks you can do or want to do with a smaller knife.

It is our intention at TOPS to ensure that a portion of all sales of this knife are used to help the Silent Heroes Foundation in their endeavors.

Get yours today.

Please take a moment to check out the Silent Heroes Foundation and learn more about this great organization at www.thesilentheroes.org Here at TOPS, we are honored to be associated with this great cause. We also wish to show our appreciation for similar missions throughout the world that help to preserve and protect endangered wildlife. Thank you all for your efforts.

S.N.A.P. Kit 

I have been working with TOPS Knives USA to produce my second knife design with them. The S.N.A.P. Card (Survival Needs And Preparedness.)

"The little tool that fills some big shoes when it comes to survival in the wilderness."

 

We all have different ideas about what makes the perfect outdoor and survival blade. This is what makes the knife industry so diverse and exciting. But for all the millions of designs out there I could not find a single one that fit snugly in a tin and could also be used for more than skinning a sparrow. So I set out to design one! What I came up with is the S.N.A.P. Card. It is 1095 HC Steel with a coating of Ceracoat in canyon red. It is 1/8" thick and it has sort of a modified chisel grind on the two cutting edges. The full kit weighs in at just 5 oz and the blade alone is 2oz. So at 5 oz and about the size of a pack of cigarettes you can carry it practically everywhere and never leave home without the ability to survive a few uncomfortable nights stranded in the wilderness. There is no magic formula that will make a small knife perform like a large one. That is why I did not shrink a tradition knife down to fit in the tin. I started with a piece of steel that would fit the space. Next, I made a list of the main functions that it MUST be able to perform. Only then did I design the blade so that it would meet or exceed the primary functions in a survival scenario. A byproduct of this approach is that the tool itself is non-threatening in appearance to the uninitiated. This means that you can use it in everyday circumstances like opening packages or cutting a sandwich without alarming your coworkers or onlookers. This is not to say that it will not serve as a formidable defensive weapon if the need arises. It will indeed perform when called upon. The S.N.A.P. tool is a nontraditional, purpose designed, survival and EDC blade that you can depend on when it matters and your life is on the line.

The S.N.A.P. kit contains:
1 S.N.A.P. Card Knife
1 Metal storage box
1 Fresnel lens
1 Signal whistle (126 Db)
1 Button compass
1 Cotton pad
12' Orange marking tape
25' Fishing line
2 Fish hooks
12' Micro cord
1 Sail needle
2 Safety pins
1 P38 can opener
1 Ferro rod
1 Acrylic signal mirror
1 Heavy rubber band
1 ID card

As you can see from the contents list that this kit contains just about everything that you need to get you through a rough day or two. It lacks any major sized water container but that is a small trade off. You can always boil and drink water directly out of the metal tin and there is almost always some trash around that you can put water in.
