Tops Grandpa’s Ax

Aug 4, 2017

Category: Gear

Last year, the crew over at TOPS Knives decided to host a little in-house friendly competition. The challenge? Design the best hatchet, tomahawk or ax and the winner will see their design come to fruition as part of the TOPS lineup – and themselves credited as the designer.

In this instance, the winner turned out to be Lorenzo Espinoza Sr. – the father of TOPS’ current President – proving that a little old school ingenuity can still go a long way. Dubbed the Grandpa’s Ax, this winning design harnesses a balance of size, weight and chopping ability in the form of a smaller hatchet. It weighs just under 1.5 pounds, measures in at 11 inches, boasts a 1095 RC 56-58 steel blade with a length of 4 inches, a green canvas Micarta handle, and comes equipped with a brown leather sheath.
