Wind Runner XL SRE
Snake River Edition
The Wind Runner XL Snake River Edition is a re-worked version of a classic TOPS hunting knife. This new version sports our famous Black River Wash with green canvas Micarta handles to provide grip even when they're wet. This is the larger of the two Wind Runners and it is a great all-around hunting knife. Every detail about the blade was included to make processing animals easy. The subdued tip allows the user to skin without worrying about puncturing a hide. The recurve and sweeping belly are ideal slashing tasks for gutting, skinning, and caping. The high grind on the thick stock make it strong, but with a very sharp edge. The handle is comfortable in standard hunting grips and the green canvas Micarta will help the user keep that grip even when it's wet (a must when processing game). The Kydex sheath provides excellent retention and a low-profile carry option.

- Work of Art that Works!!!
- I just received my Wind Runner XL and I am beyond impressed. Not only is the knife gorgeous and sexy, but it is a totally functional tool. It is perfectly balanced, the edge is super sharp and the Micarta handle is really grippy. Can't wait to use it. TOPS Knives are unbeatable and will last a lifetime!!! (Posted on 12/21/2018)
- Excellent Field Knife
- I carried this knife for 6 months while deployed in Afghanistan after learning the limits of my dagger as a field knife. The Wind Runner is extremely capable and versatile, and it quickly became my go-to blade for chores and tasks. It never left my belt. The sweeping handle and recurve blade are very intuitive and easy on the hands. I absolutely love this knife and I am proud to carry such an outstanding, American-made piece of kit. Thanks TOPS!
