TOPS has long been known for their rugged, versatile and economical knives. You will find more than just a few Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen packing their steel, and it won’t be too hard to find their loyal following of outdoorsmen of all walks. The company builds quality knives right here in the good ole’ US of A, deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. With many designs and styles to suit just about everyone’s needs, they are pleased to announce a new blade in their already impressive line up.

The  new CROW HAWKE has the same exact dimensions as its brother, the SPARROW HAWKE. The company has updated finish and handle on the CROW HAWKE, and the revamped knife breathes new life into an old favorite. Its more than just an update, it’s an improvement to the classic design.

TOPS tells us that this woods knife was designed with the Hawk in mind.

“A Hawk’s talons, which are used to catch and hold prey are razor sharp and very formidable, just like this knife.”

The CROW HAWKE is a sturdy Necker/EDC tool with a great design. It’s small and lightweight, which will hopefully encourage you to carry it on all excursions. The idea is that you won’t even notice you’re carrying it until you need it. Built for versatility and more routine tasks, it will tackle smaller woodworking tasks, the slaughter of innocent cardboard boxes, cutting cordage and of course the edged chastisement of people who might wish you harm. Obviously it will handle other EDC work quickly, and with great control.

We figure the CROW HAWKE would be a welcome addition to bug-out bags, 72-hour kits, and other emergency prep kits because its small size and weight.  Others might view it as an excellent back-up tool at need. Regardless of how you use it, the new knife features the quality and reliability found throughout all the TOPS designs, and at a price that wont break your wallet.  Its being offered for a limited time discount of just $63.95 and can be purchased HERE.

    With deepest respect, the requisite reference to self-defense with this diminutive (but well made) blade is pure folly… even for you guys.

      That depends. For a drawn out knife fight, sure, it leaves something to be desired. For a weapons retention scenario, it’s no more impractical than say, the socp dagger you waxed eloquent about on kit up a few years ago
