Tops Knives Operator 7 Fighting Knife

Nov 20, 2018

Category: Gear

The trend in the knife-making community at this particular moment appears to be slim, minimalist, small blades that are as stylish as they are compact. Leave it to a brand like Tops, however, to completely buck that trend with what can only be described as a formidable fixed blade – their Operator 7 fighting knife.

Completely overbuilt in every way – which is, in this case, a very good thing – this is the kind of all-purpose knife that doesn’t take sh*t from anyone. Made in the USA, it measures up at 12.5″ in length and weighs a hefty 18.9 ounces. But that size and weight is certainly accounted for by its Acid Rain-finished 1075 steel blade and impressive combination Micarta and G10 handle. Inspired by American fighting knives of the past, this workhorse tool is every bit as impressive as it is intimidating. And it can be yours for $190.
