First shown at the 2020 SHOT Show New Products Showcase, The Bestia was very well received, for obvious reasons.

Leo wanted a large kukuri-like chopper, but not an actual kukuri. So, The Bestia was born by melding El Chete - already one of TOPS' most popular workhorses - with a kukri, to create a true beast in chopping ability. The long, forward curved blade and weight behind it bites deep with each swing and the tan traction powder coating will protect the blade for years to come. The handle is also long enough to hold in 2 positions. One for full on chopping and one for more controlled and even fine cuts. What really makes this knife comfortable to wield are the sandwiched Micarta handles that are thick, but well-contoured. The open-backed Kydex sheath with a leather dangler attachment make it easy to carry given its size.

As soon as you hold one in your hands, you know that it just wants to get some work done.

Banana Clever.
This Monster will split Zombie skulls. All joking aside, the advertised bestial nature of this tool is not an exaggeration. It’s a little awkward initially with that big banana bend in the blade but doesn’t take long to get used to it. The two grip options seem to work out for their intended purposes. Do not use the wrong hand grip when chopping the sharp edge comes down to the handle and will cut your finger if it slips. Yes, I tested this out and it works out bad. Like always use tools as intended and you’ll be fine. It’s fun to swing. Review by Tony (Posted on 12/20/2022)
