TOPS Wilderness Guide 4
Great all around Outdoor knife from TOPS Knives USA. Uses their excellent 1095 HC Steel (Full Broad Tang, saber ground and 58HRC) for toughness and good edge retention.
Designed by Leo Espinoza its a highly functional and practical tool. Nice Micarta slabs with Brass hollow pins and lanyard hole, the knife has a deep choil for control and a wide drop point tip
The development of our Wilderness Guide knife is a result of long-thought and substantial input from professional Outdoorsmen. With some 16 million backpackers just in the USA, plus all the Mountain Bikers, Trekkers, Sea Kayakers, Climbers, and Survivalists, we realize that no one knife would do it for all. Therefore, this design is highly functional, using 1/8" thick, easy to re-sharpen, 1095 High Carbon alloy.
It has an exceptionally wide blade (1 1/2") with a blade length of 4 1/2", and generally suits a wide variety of outdoor requirements.
Leo Espinoza designed a very functional handle that fits the hand well with excellent traction and a slight recurve at the back to keep the grip secure in wet conditions. This is a great addition to any outdoorsman's gear.
