- Great knife, bad handleReview by Jeff
- I love the knife and have used it a lot since my purchase a couple months ago. The one thing I dislike is the ergonomics of the handle. It has no "grip" whatsoever and is hard to hold. There is no hand grip whatsoever , having an almost straight handle with no palm swell or end of handle swell to keep the knife firmly in your hand. (Posted on 4/8/2016)
- Beast of a knifeReview by Andrew
- This knife was my introduction to TOPS knifes. The design and craftsmanship on it is amazing. I haven't bought another larger fixed blade since. I use it primarily for backpacking and it' like having a hatchet and knife in one. My wife makes fun of me when I try and use it for a tool to do stuff around the house, cause I'm just looking for an excuse to take it out. (Posted on 7/18/2015)
