Baja is recognized worldwide for some of the most rugged terrain. The Baja 3.0’s big brother has arrived. Based on customer feedback we decided to stretch the popular 3 inch model. In place of the Coyote Tan powder coat, we’ve upgraded the finish with our famous Black River Wash, which gives each knife its own unique look. Green Canvas Micarta handle scales and a high-quality leather dangler sheath (available in black or brown) make this a must-buy for users and collectors alike.

Unlike TOPS’ other models in the 4 to 4.5 inch range, this one is 5/32” thick. That thickness along with a full flat grind gives it strength over 1/8” blades, but allows it to maintain superb cutting capabilities since it’s slightly thinner than 3/16”. Our professional heat treat gives a long lasting edge that is easy to re-sharpen once it is eventually needed. The jimping on the spine and along the finger guard is ideal for a solid grip in hard use or slippery conditions. Due to the thinner blade, it gives you better precision and greater range from making delicate cuts to cutting thick branches with ease. These same qualities make the BAJA 4.5 great for food prep as well.

The inspiration for the name and design comes from Baja California. From the high point of Devil’s Peak at 10,157 feet, to the low Sonoran Desert, to the beautiful beaches, Baja is known for its contrasts. It is recognized worldwide for some of the most rugged, “bad ass” terrain.

And of course, TOPS are made in the USA!

Outstanding knife

I currently own (3) TOPS knives and this is my little workhorse while out camping/hiking. The sheath is a standard leather but I do not use it as I made a kydex.

Great all purpose knife

Great all purpose knife love the full flat grind blade really helps when slicing razor sharp edge holds very well and is durable enough to baton logs splits them with ease
