The TOPS Fieldcraft is a fixed knife, designed for bushcraft enthusiasts by the Brothers of Bushcraft. This is a coalition of bushcrafters in North America. Their mission is to share knowledge of bushcraft and nature. This Fieldcraft knife is the result of a collaboration that combines all experiences of survival in numerous circumstances into one ultimate bushcraft knife.
The blade is made from 1095 carbon steel. As the name suggests, this type of steel has a relatively high carbon content. This means that the knife can be sharpened really sharp, but it also means it is not stainless. Make sure to clean it properly after use, and occasionally apply a few drops of oil to the blade. The Scandi grind is easy to sharpen and has a slightly convex shape towards the edge.
The micarta handle has cut-outs on both sides for a bow drill. The tang of the blade sticks out at the back of the handle to make sure you don't put too much strain on the micarta handle while batoning. On the pommel you'll also find a cut-out to safely use a firesteel.
The knife comes with a solid kydex sheath. You can easily attach this to your belt with the sturdy steel belt clip. On the side of the sheath you'll find a firesteel, which turns this knife into a complete tool for any outdoor adventure.
