TOBSE01: 5-1/2" Black Star Evolution with Combo Edge and Black Micarta Handles
TOPS Knives

Inspired by Challenge. Designed for Combat. Proven in Battle.

The Black Star has been in active service for a long time, a good proven design. We did feel that some guys who like the basic style might want it jazzed up a bit. And so, the Black Star Evolution II: Sharp lines, notable performance.

Pros: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, Materials
Cons: None
Sturdy Knife
This is a heavy knife with a great sheath that isn't going to break on you. That being said the textured micarta grip is not comfortable around the edges. I've used this knife for splitting wood and it works well being a thick blade with a high angle edge grind. Edge retention is good but its hard to hone to a fine edge due to the same reasons that make it a good chopper. The point is fierce and I wouldn't want to be at the end of it. Will be buying another TOPS soon but I'll be looking at the longer versions.
