Noted writer Jerry Van Cook, wrote in Tactical Knives Magazine: "Tactical Operational Knives (TOPS) have a distinctive look about them. When you see one, you immediately know it's from TOPS because their very essence shouts "ALL ABOUT BUSINESS."

On a trip to the Peruvian Amazon, Jerry carried the Dawn Warrior and wrote: "La Selva (THE JUNGLE), however, was a real proving ground. The Dawn Warrior was my only blade and it was constantly wet with a combination of rain, humidity, and human perspiration. It cut everything from paracord, rope, and vines to the sleeves off of two long-sleeved T-shirts. Upon Jerry's' return from the jungle, he called TOPS and said "I think it might be even better suited for self-defense" and so the story went on.

This is truly an amazing fixed blade knife! The balance is perfection and the fit and finish are like all TOPS knives. Personal note, I’ve owned several knives and this one would make a great combat hard field use knife! Do not overlook this gem in the TOPS lineup. Review by Steve (Posted on 3/5/2024)
Amazing Knife
I am very impressed with the quality craftsmanship of this knife. I have collected a plethora of knives, and this takes the cake for balance, feel, and strength. I look forward to adding more TOPs knives to my collection. Review by Dylan (Posted on 1/14/2021)
