TOPS Idaho Hunter SRE
Snake River Edition of the Idaho Hunter
The great outdoors of Idaho deserve a knife that was made for them. The Snake River Edition of the Idaho Hunter is that knife.
It has been upgraded from the original with TOPS’ famous Black River Wash and darkened black linen Micarta handles. The finish provides a smooth surface that makes processing game, food prep around the campsite, and just about any other task a breeze. The handle allows for multiple hand-positions making it comfortable to use. The well-thought out blade and handle features make the Idaho hunter highly capable and a very practical knife.
While it was designed with the rugged and varied landscape of southeast Idaho in mind, this knife will serve you well regardless of your location.

- Great all around knife.
Bought this for hunting and skinning. Did not expect much more from it. Turns out this is an amazing all around knife. It will skin, process wood, make feathersticks, slice, does it all.
In the hand, it feels and cuts nothing like you would expect from its looks. It’s weighty and feels to be a beast. Then you start a cut and you have to pull back because it cuts like a scalpel. This knife just likes to cut. The handle is very comfortable in the hand. The blade is thick, forward weighted and takes a hair shaving razor sharp edge. It is easily brought back to sharpness in the field.
I have a lot of knives, turns out i carry this one around everyday while out working. Not a “super steel” but takes a beating and sharpens right back up. For me, the kydex sheath works best. (Posted on 10/9/2019)
