The C.A.T. (Covert Anti-Terrorism) series includes some of the earliest models TOPS ever produced, and they have been in service ever since. They have been carried by military, law enforcement, hunters, campers, and bushcrafters. The grooves in the handle improve the grip and the look of the knife, but don't cause hot spots like many other tread patterns.
The purpose of the C.A.T.’s was to provide a solid back-up blade that is easy to conceal and could save lives in the right scenario and with proper training. It is a small, strong, highly versatile knife that is easy to use and maintain. The design allows for good penetration and slashing cuts as well as a multitude of EDC uses. The kydex sheath helps maintain a low profile and has a rotating clip so it can easily be worn in multiple carry positions.
