When it comes to outdoor-focused hunting knives, most folks are happy settling for a cheaper blade steel, so long as it sharpens decently and doesn’t chip on the first use. But we think that’s a mistake. If you really value your fixed blade knife, opting for something with a higher-end steel in its construction can make the tool even more effective and indispensable. The folks at Tops Knives appear to agree with that sentiment, as they’ve just unveiled their first production S35VN steel blade in their Camp Creek hunting knife.
Known for its insane toughness and durability, the S35VN steel used in the Camp Creek elevates it a level above most hunting knives. And that’s helped by the fact that its Nessmuk-inspired silhouette is entirely unique; the handle scales are built from a beautiful, lightweight, and durable 3-color camouflage G10; and it comes along with a sturdy Kydex sheath. Of course, like all of their offerings, this fixed blade is also made in the USA and comes with Tops’ lifetime warranty. One of the best hunting knives ever to grace the brand’s catalogue, the Camp Creek can be yours now for $175.
