TOPS Knives introduces the new Kodiak

In the Kodiak JAC 2 knife you’ll see the result of collaboration between outdoor professionals from Alaska and Idaho. It was designed to be a ‘dream knife’ for hunters, trappers, outdoorsmen and other folk who prefer to be outside (and never dye their beards). Each feature was, according to TOPS, purpose built. There’s a wide blade with a broad belly to help prevent puncturing an animal while cutting. The handle and overall shape were intended to facilitate multiple hand positions and the extended tang is there to scrape hide in “hard to reach places” where the blade edge might quickly dull.

The JAC 2 is pretty similar to the one that went before, though this one has a Coyote Tan Coat and Green Canvas Micarta handle scales. It comes with a Coyote colored Kydex scabbard with rotating clip.

We haven’t had it out hunting or fishing, but if and when we do we’ll get you some pictures of it “in the wild.”

    Nice looking blade, but…a Taurus?

      Don’t knock the Taurus Poly Judge! Not much of a Taurus fan but the Judge is a great gun, dead reliable and super versatile, especially in the back country. A hell of a lot cheaper than Smith & Wesson’s Governor.

      I have sold lots and lots of Judges and not a single one has ever come back or been in for warranty.

      As for the knife, I have a few from Tops but my current favorite is the Wilderness Guide 4.0 and this looks like it’s next on my list.
