In the most challenging situations.
TOPS Knives started many years ago in the heart of the Rocky Mountains: living, playing, and working in this incredible outdoor paradise. TOPS' earlier years were specifically oriented toward tools for Special Operations (both military and law enforcement) or for Survival. Our growing clientele has requested that we develop a lighter and functional series of knives oriented to Hunters, Backpackers, Campers, Trekkers, Hikers, Bikers, and Preppers. Their needs led to new designs with thinner but often wider blades to keep inherent strength and with unique handle configurations to assist with a secure grip in all situations.
This is the story behind the development of the Viper Scout. Don't be fooled by its elegant design. This knife performs proficiently in the field, just like it was born and raised there!
The 1/8" thick 1095 blade is wider than your average knife, ensuring strength. Leo Espinoza, VP of TOPS, and the designer, incorporated his newest version of the now, well-known Rocky Mountain Tread. The knife sits comfortably in most hands. A 100% leather sheath carries the knife close to the body with an easily accessible draw.
A good looking, functional, trustworthy companion.
