DIVING SPARROW (Designed by Abe Elias)


This unique knife was designed by Abe Elias of Diving Sparrow Knife Works. The original concept was for a handy utility blade that could be placed in a small survival kit which would have more strength and durability than a razor blade. Abe found that not only were wilderness survival enthusiast carrying it but people were adapting it to be an “inside the belt line” self defense knife, easy to conceal and carry.

Abraham Elias has been designing and making knives since 2003. An auto worker and jack-of-all-trades he developed his love of steel as a boy having owned his first knife at the age of 6 which was a gift from his uncle and then becoming a collector at the age of ten, buying knives with his paper route money. A few years ago Abe left the auto industry all together and went into making his knife designs full time. Over the past eight years he has become; Field Editor for "Knives Illustrated" magazine, contributing writer to Knife World and can be found writing for numerous other outdoor publications. Abe also teaches “hands on” Outdoor Survival Classes.

Abe’s background includes: wilderness survival instructor, traditional wood worker, primitive skills teacher and wilderness canoeing instructor.

CUMA HISS CUMA HISS

***AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW***

Price:$69.95

DESIGNED AND WRITTEN BY : WAYSUN JOHNNY TSAI

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

es·cape [ i skáyp ]

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!

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.
