Details

A tribute to the men and women who hunt and fish in the Tex creek area in Southeast, Idaho. The wildlife management area which includes 2 national forests, is home to an abundance of diverse wildlife and is accessible starting about 10 miles from the TOPS facility. Open range, high rugged mountains, waterways, and large forests provide the hunter and fisherman a variety of diverse terrain to acquire: elk, bear, mountain lion, wolf, moose, pheasant, turkey, quail, rabbit, duck, goose, steelhead and salmon.

The fact that this Tex creek area is so close to us, enables our designers and makers the ability to field test in their own backyard. Since many of our staff grew up in this setting, they have ample opportunity to evaluate the use of our knives/tools under the most adverse conditions. The Tex Creek XL is a fine example of a high quality, good-looking working knife.

The designer, Leo Espinoza, created a new look on this specific blade. At TOPS, we call it "Black River Wash" The uncoated finish clearly shows the heat treat line along the blade edge. The darkened-steel pattern is unique on every blade. This creates that "broken in, rustic look" and feels just like an old pair of comfortable boots. The darkened Micarta scales are screwed onto the handle and a large cord holder is accentuated at the back of the handle. The handles are designed and built for a positive grip and for extended periods of use. A simple and usable design is reinforced by a sturdy 3/16" thick blade and full tang handle.

This is a knife that performs with excellence in the field and looks and feels like an old trusted friend, anywhere you go.

* Please Note That The "Black River Wash" Process Will Create A Unique Look To Each Knife. Your Knife's Pattern May Vary From The Product Image. The Carbon Content Of The Steel Can Also Cause Variations In The Engraving.***
