TOPS Knives
 
Noted Outdoorsmen, Scout Leader and Knife and Axe Designer, Allen Jensen spent a great deal of time digesting and analyzing information received from Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, Hot Shot Crews (highly trained wild-land firefighters), so they could have a little something extra. 

The article noted that in addition to use of the Fireman's Backup by fire departments, SWAT teams and government agencies, TOPS has also sent the axes directly to special military units that use them as forced-entry tools. It's solid, well built, sharp, functional, ergonomic, and best of all - made in the USA.

Beautiful tool! Could make an excellent survival multi-tool on extended forays in the wilderness. At the price and quality, I`d pay extra for a serrated portion on the lower haft or the top rear curve.
