Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
All Business, No BS!
I have been a Tops Knives collector for years, and this tanto point SWAT Spike knife is worthy of their name. Right off, I went for it for the chisel edge pry tip pommel, and chose the tanto point for further prying and penetrating ability as well. I saw the usefulness right away from times I had to pry open windows and jimmy doors as contract security before. With Tops' usual clockwise rotating belt clip for their kydex sheaths, it makes it easy to adjust to all kinds of angles for carry. This will be my heavy utility ''stash'' knife to complement the Becker Tac Tool I have had since being a rescue diver. Shaving hair off my arm right out of the box and their great hardcore finish and excellent micarta panels come with it-as always. A good and straight forward knife that can easily be a defensive fighter, the pommel as well was in my decision as a striking point in need. I have never been disappointed with Tops, and this knife is no exception. I highly recommend this knife, and the price is exceptional for the quality! The sheath is just as much up to standards as their blades.
