About Tops Knives:
 
TOPS Knives are TOOLS designed, and built, using the extensive knowledge and Real Life Experiences of 12 Operators with backgrounds in the Military, Law Enforcement, Outdoor Professions, and the Martial Arts.
 
All TOPS fixed Blades and Gear are designed and handcrafted at TOPS’ own facility in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, USA.
 
Over the last couple of years TOPS KNIVES have been deployed in many "Hot Spots" of the world.
 
Knife Description:
 
The Tops B.O.B. Brothers of Bushcraft Fieldcraft Knives were designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focusing on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over.
 
The Baja 3.0’s big brother has arrived. Based on customer feedback we decided to stretch the popular 3” model. In place of the Coyote Tan powder coat, we’ve upgraded the finish with our famous Black River Wash, which gives each knife its own unique look. Green Canvas Micarta Handle Scales and a high-quality black Leather Dangler Sheath make this a must-buy for users and collectors alike. With a Ferro-Rod Attachment, the sheath now doubles as a Minimalist Survival Kit.
 
Unlike TOPS’ other models in the 4 to 4.5 inch range, this one is 5/32” thick. That thickness along with a full flat grind gives it strength over 1/8” blades, but allows it to maintain superb cutting capabilities since it’s slightly thinner than 3/16”.
 
Our professional heat treat gives a long lasting edge that is easy to re-sharpen once it is eventually needed. The jimping on the spine and along the finger guard is ideal for a solid grip in hard use or slippery conditions. Due to the thinner blade, it gives you better precision and greater range from making delicate cuts to cutting thick branches with ease. These same qualities make the BAJA 4.5 great for food prep as well.
 
The inspiration for the name and design comes from Baja California. From the high point of Devil’s Peak at 10,157 feet, to the low Sonoran Desert, to the beautiful beaches, Baja is known for its contrasts. It is recognized worldwide for some of the most rugged, “bad ass” terrain.
And of course, TOPS are made in the USA!
 
With a Rockwell Hardness of 56-58, the ease of sharpening is astounding. That is if you ever get to sharpen the Blade. As the hardness and edge geometry work beautifully together to make a long lasting edge.
 
The Bow Drill Divot on the Handle is frictionless and makes starting those primitive fires almost effortless. The "Thumb Scallops", formed on the hilt of the handle offer more comfort and control when using specialized carving and skinning grips. The Pommel of the Blade is simply the tang of the knife exposed enough to allow impact from a baton to not effect the handle (though the canvas micarta is definitely tough enough to take such abuse).
 
The knife also comes with a TOPS low profile Emergency Whistle field-tested to 126DB. The Whistle is manufactured from hardened ultra-heavy duty plastic with no moving parts to freeze up. Size: 70 x 27 x 7 mm.
 
Comes with Tops Certificate of Authenticity.
