TOPS C.A.T. 203 Knife - Tanto Point
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.
Aside from the obvious tactical uses, this knife is perfect for EDC. The kydex sheath helps maintain a low profile and has a rotating clip so it can easily be worn in multiple carry positions.
The purpose for this series was to provide a solid back-up blade that is easy to conceal and that 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.
203 Micarta Handles
203T-01 Cryptic Cyber Scales Handles - Black G10 and feature a textured finish for a solid purchase on the knife. There is a cryptic pattern cut into these that really makes them stand out and gives a unique look to the knife.
203T-02 Rocky Mountain Bull's-eye Handles - Red and Black G10 handles with a tread we call Rocky Mountain Bull’s-eye. Those grooves improve the grip and the look of the knife, but don't cause hot spots like many other tread patterns.
