Every year, TOPS’ President Leo Espinoza makes himself a knife for hunting season. This tradition is something that helps him maintain his creativity by making something that is specifically for him, not for the general public. Sometimes however, that knife ends up being a TOPS model. Knives like the Viper Scout, White Fang, and Tex Creek are examples of Leo’s personal hunting knives that became TOPS models.
The goal with this model was to make a super high quality hunting/camp knife using materials that are uncommon for TOPS. They chose 1/8” CPM S35VN steel for its superior edge retention and stainless properties. The handles are a 3 color camo-style G10 that look amazing with our finishing. It also comes in a stylish tan Kydex sheath with a brown leather dangler.
It’s a Nessmuk-like design that functions superbly for hunting and skinning animals, but will also be especially handy around any campsite for processing wood and or food prep. Of course, it will have the superior fit and finish expected of TOPS as well. All of the features of the Camp Creek combine to form one of the best hunting knives ever to grace TOPS’ lineup.
