The Wolf pAX 2 combo

“Rugged good looks and

Some 12 years later and hundreds of sales all over the world the TOPS Wolf Pup is one of our most popular knives. It is easy to carry, fits most hands, fairly small, highly efficient, finely engineered and great to use in most situations. With that in mind we decided to add it to our brand new field ax and call it the Wolf pAX 2.

The hand ax was made to carry on your belt or your pack, even in your canoe. Made of 1095 high carbon alloy, the beard of the axe measures a good 3 inches and the handle measures 5 inches. The canvas Micarta handle ensures a safe grip with positive traction. If you’re taking an elk apart or cutting small trees, the axe delivers cutting power with a punch. This handy combination is mounted together in a U.S. made tough Kydex sheath. This is a strong combination worthy of most woodmen, trekkers, canoers, campers and survival oriented folks.

Wild Pig Hunter

Wild pig hunting has become a very popular sport as well as a necessity in many areas due to their overwhelming numbers and the damage they do.

Wild pigs (aka wild boar, feral hogs - ‘sus scrofa’).

Feral hogs may appear basically the same as domestic hogs and a wide variety in colors and coat patterns. A mature feral hog may reach a weight of 100 to over 400 pounds. They have 4 continuous tusks , 2 top and 2 bottom and their contact causes a continuous sharpening of the lower tusks. The tusks combined with their lightning speed can cause serious damage to a hunter or their dogs.

The TOPS ‘Wild Pig Hunter knife’ is a seriously hardcore design, the 7 1/2” blade is made for deep positive piercing penetration and is combined with a strong puncture point.

Each blade is ground from ¼” thick 1095 high carbon steel.
To add to a highly functional blade, we have enhanced the blade by adding our ‘Black River Wash’ finish, (you can see the heat treat line running along the entire blade edge), and the final clear coat will give years of dependable service.

The handle is designed using green canvas Micarta and our well known ‘Rocky Mountain Tread’ which ensures a positive grip even when in wet, muddy or bloody conditions.
The sheath is made in the USA of vegetable tanned, tough steerhide.

"This is definitely a great backup knife for difficult situations and hard use."

Backwoods Skinner

"Years ago, while I was a teenager, a friend of mine showed me an authentic Alaskan Ulu that he had received from a friend of his. I had never seen anything like it and immediately saw the benefits for skinning, food prep and light bushcrafting. I have been a big fan of the Ulu since and as a hunter, when I was designing the Backwoods Skinner I couldn’t think of any blade geometry that fit my purpose for this knife like the Ulu.

I decided to use the same deep belly of the Ulu for skinning purposes, but opted for a smaller blade and a rear oriented grip for getting into tighter areas and the ability to do finer skinning work. I went with the straight clip point so that it would allow for the index finger to run up the spine to the tip, allowing you to guide the Backwoods Skinner into tighter spots with greater control. I decided to angle the grip away from the blade in an effort to allow for a natural break to the wrist for better ergonomics and to prevent fatigue in the wrist when working with it for extended periods of time.

In an effort to make this a full featured hunting knife, I knew that it needed a gut hook for expedient field stripping of your game but I opted against putting it on the spine of the knife for a few reasons; first - the blade geometry and angle of the grip would have made this option difficult to use, second - my intended use of the index finger to guide the blade into tight areas would be dangerous with a gut hook in the way and three - spine oriented gut hooks tend to tear coats, clothing and sheaths when pulled out. So for these reasons I spent some time trying to come up with some different options, when I decided on a parasite gut hook. This keeps the gut hook shrouded when not in use and is safer when it is in use, because you sheath the blade to use it.

The ovulated grip was designed to fit the ergonomics of the hand, again allowing for extended use with minimal fatigue and with the tightening at the hilt you can achieve a firm purchase of the grip with maximum control when pulling the blade through your cut.

The Backwoods Skinner was designed for everything from large game hunting down to wilderness survival small game hunting/trapping and light bushcrafting in mind. Enjoy and happy hunting."

Designed by:

L.V.I. Bushcraft & Survival Inc.

Nicholas Fury III

This knife is the product of more than 30 years of experience in the outdoors. Wilderness Bushcraft & Survival has been not just a hobby, but also a way of life. The design is of the Nepalese Khukuri style, which is well known to all who view the shape of the blade.

My travels have taken me to some of the furthest reaches of the world, some so remote that there would be little chance of seeing another human being, and sometimes, alone. It is these conditions this knife was designed for. The first words that came to mind when I designed this Khukuri were strength, reliability, resilience, and adaptability.

This is not just another Khukuri design. You will notice that there is a deeper sweeping belly to this blade than a normal Khukuri. This allows you to use a shorter blade and still have tremendous chopping power. The belly also helps facilitate it’s use to skin animals, whether choking up on the blade with your hand up on the spine, or using a push or draw motion to cape.

The curved nature of this Khukuri design is a natural for slicing, using the blade as a draw knife in push, or pull direction, creating feather sticks with the inner curve of the blade, processing firewood - whether by chopping, or batoning, smashing nuts with the pommel, scraping bark with the back of the knife, etc.

The handle has been designed to be used under harsh conditions, and not injure the hands from repeated use over extended periods of time. There is a bow drill divot on each side of the handle to facilitate this action should you need to make fire by friction in this manner, and a lanyard hole at the end of the pommel. Function, and ergonomics were the key elements here.

"The Khukuri has a long history of being a tool, weapon, and a status symbol."

The Bushcrafter Kukuri is first and foremost a tool, designed to embrace all those characteristics, which make up a knife that is useful for both Bushcraft, and Survival. It has enough size and strength to accomplish any mission in a Survival situation, yet is light enough, short enough, and nimble enough to use for Bushcrafting chores.

As a weapon, the soldier can count on the Bushcrafter Kukuri to perform flawlessly. The Nepalese Khukuri is well known for its ability to kill or sever with a single blow. The Bushcrafter Kukuri is no different. The awesome strength, cutting and stabbing power of the Khukuri is legendary.

In Nepal when a boy becomes a man, he is presented with a Khukuri, representing his new status in life. It is a symbol of honor, dedication, and strength, among others. The Bushcrafter Kukuri carries on this tradition, and it is an honor, and a privilege to share this knife with all those who value the Khukuri design, and wish to share in its rich legacy.

SWAT SPIKE Tanto Point Paracord SWAT SPIKE Tanto Point Paracord

For Those Who Don't Back Down...


SWAT Spike Tanto Point Paracord

Officer Allen Garcia has been a police officer in Middletown, RI since 1988. Prior to that, he served as a sergeant in the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division. He has been assigned to both department and regionalized SWAT teams since 1991 and a member of NTOA (National Tactical Officers Assoc.) and IALEFI.

Portions of his testing and review included:

The knife comes in a variety of configurations, all models have roughly 5 inches of cutting surface, either Micarta or wrapped with paracord, full tang and 3/16" thick. One thing that is easily noticed when looking at the SWAT Spike is the pommel of the knife which is fashioned into a very practical pry bar. This knife fills the role perfectly for a SWAT operator looking for a tough, sensible fixed blade that won't take up much space on his person yet proved a myriad of uses.

If your looking for extremely rugged, outstanding quality knives made in America. I would strongly recommend you take a look at TOPS Knives as I am sure you will find what you are looking for. As the TOPS motto states "SPECIAL OPS TRUST TOPS... ‘CAUSE THEY'RE HARD TO THE CORE!”
