Well-known for his dynamic designs of the Fireman's Backup, the Fast Axes, and of course the multi-use Haket, Allen (the Axeman) Jensen has taken his wealth of knowledge learned as an avid outdoorsman, scout leader, survival enthusiast, and all-around "McGyver" to design a great Bird and Trout knife. It also serves as a great skinner.
The handle design allows for multiple grip options for various uses. With the knife upside down and the thumb in the choil, it cleans fish without cutting the entrails. Thanks to the "Nesmuk Hump," with the index finger behind the blade and the thumb resting on the handle notch, it makes a great skinning tool for tough hides like bear and beaver. With the conventional grip, its small profile is perfect for camp and kitchen chores and many other uses. The stainless steel blade means years of worry free service in wet environments.
Once you use the BTK, you will see why we say It's a knife with a thousand uses. Allen Jensen is a long time friend of TOPS Knives and was instrumental in building its first shop.

- Fisherman, Hunter, Guide, Avid Outdoorsman
- I have been an avid outdoorsman for a very long time. Fishing Hunting and Guiding/mentoring in all aspects of the outdoors. I am a firm believer of being prepared and having the right tool for the job. I have owned and used literally hundreds of production and custom knives over the years. Many of them live do not live up to their billing for one reason or another. Occasionally one really capture the essence of its design. The Tops BTK does EXACTLY that and I am not paid to say this. I have owned and used this knife since October 2019 so its gone through 2 fall hunting seasons, 2 summer fishing seasons, 1 spring bear and 1 turkey season and numerous back country travel trips. It has gone through extensive use, some shameful abuse and a ton of admiration. This knife is absolutely AWESOME for its intended use of small game processing especially trout, rabbit and flushing birds. It also does a great job skinning midsized game such as deer and bear too. If you are on the fence about this knife dont wait just get it. It you are an avid wade style fisherman from mountain streams its a must have item. If you are anything like me you will consider this to be essential kit. Good job Tops, keep it up. (Posted on 2/21/2021)
