All great bushcrafters know... It's nice to have options. Thats why TOPS as added another knife to their popular Fieldcraft line by The Brothers of Bushcraft. This one boasts a Coyote Tan powder coat with our Green Canvas Micarta handles. Still the same sturdy, strong knife that so many people have come to love with an updated look. So whether you prefer the original black with tan handles, the tumble finish with tan, or the coyote tan with green handles, this knife will help you tackle the tasks you need to survive.
The Fieldcraft Knife was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focused on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over.
The Fieldcraft Knife is the culmination of their knowledge, combining experiences from the broad and humid rain forests, to the arid and scorpion-littered deserts, to the frigid northern lands that span the Americas.
The cutting edge is a modified Scandinavian Grind, which is very effective for carving, skinning, and other general wood work. The hardness and edge geometry work beautifully together to make a long lasting edge. The handle is one of the most ergonomic on the market, sporting several useful additions. Although knives with a lot of frills often end up lacking, the additional items found on The Fieldcraft Knife were selected from experience and critiqued in every step of design, development and production. Being made of canvas Micarta, the handle will never let you down. The bow drill divot on the handle is frictionless and makes starting those primitive fires almost effortless. The "Thumb Scallops", formed on the hilt of the handle offer more comfort and control when using specialized carving and skinning grips. The pommel of the blade is simply the tang of the knife exposed enough to allow impact from a baton to not affect the handle (though the Micarta is definitely tough enough to take such abuse). On the exposed pommel, you will find a scraper specially designed by one of The Brothers of Bushcraft, for striking Ferro rods in a safe and efficient manner.
The Coyote Tan B.O.B. also boasts a Coyote Tan Kydex Sheath in place of the black Kydex, still with a rotating steel belt clip. This arrangement allows a safe, secure, and comfortable carry on the belt, pack strap, or even around the neck. With a built in Ferro-rod attachment point, the sheath now doubles as a minimalist survival kit.
From carving netting needles and trap triggers, to chopping through branches, the TOPS Knives / Brothers of Bushcraft Fielcraft Knife will do just about any chore that you can throw at her to survive and thrive out there in the wilderness.
