Why special ops choose TOPS Knives.
TOPS Knives was founded in 1998 by a group of veterans who wanted to create a better class of blade for service members and law enforcement. To accomplish their goal, they brought together knife designers from virtually every field where mission success depends on maximum performance in extreme situations. Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, SWAT teams, survival instructors, weapons experts, and even martial arts masters have all contributed input into over 200 active-production models of knives that are designed to be the best at what they do.
TOPS knives are typically made from 1095 high carbon steel that balances hardness and edge retention with ease of sharpening, which is why these knives are recommended for hunting, fishing, survival, combat, and even everyday household jobs. Whatever your task, these knives will perform.
Hundreds of options, hundreds of styles.
We believe the knife should fit the operator and never the other way around. That's why we love the fact that TOPS knives feature blade variations from 1 to 3 inches all the way up to 10 to 12 inches. And if you're looking for high-performance hunting knives, we've got the legendary TOPS BOB Series (Brothers of Bushcraft, also sometimes called TOPS Fieldcraft). You can also check out other outdoorsmen-certified classics like the TOPS Bird and Trout Knife, the TOPS Cheetah Series, and the Shadow Rider Series.
