It's upper swedge, drop point, and sweeping blade shape make it ideal for multiple uses. it's great for chopping, stabbing, slicing, slashing, etc. You can even choke up with the finger choil and do finer cuts as well.

- My new # 1
I have a modest 24 piece collection of knives. I'm not a steel snob, but I know what to look for and what to avoid. Enter TOPS knives. My first was the Tex Creek which I earned by working behind the scenes for a survival website/blog. A couple of years later, I started rummaging through the TOPS website and although I really wanted a majority of their products, they were a little out of reach financially. I recently became a state and nationally certified EMT, so a little (very little) money flow made a difference.
I must've looked thru the TOPS website over and over again to narrow down my selections. I even created a Word document with my favorites. At the top of the list was the Outpost Command. It didn't have some wild design and appeared to be an instrument that was useful in many different areas. I like a simple design that also lends itself to being used in my multi-tasking environment. I like a stout knife. This knife has the thickest spine I've ever seen. It's weight makes it a bruiser when chopping and hacking, yet it can be held to do fine work too. It's a big, heavy, super sharp goliath. None of my other knives come close, even my KA-BAR Warthog. It has made the decision for me on which knife to carry with me every day. I wish they had these as government issue when I was in the US Army Field Artillery. (Posted on 8/7/2015)
