TOPS Alaskan Harpoon Knife
ALASKAN HARPOON TIME TO TAME THE WILDERNESS...
For the past 8 years this knife has been in constant demand by soldiers, campers, survivalists, and plain ol' outdoor enthusiasts. Alaska, the last frontier, is a huge and rugged state with wildlife galore and an incredible landscape. This knife was named as such and since it looks similar to a harpoon, we named it accordingly.
Dan Schechtman, noted author and survival guru, wrote in the Jan. 09 issue of Tactical Knives in his survival column about Ed Arnold, a well-known skilled practitioner of survival skills, "He is either practicing his skills or working out. This guy knows his stuff. Ed is a serious knife buff and has an arsenal of quality-edged tools. When it is time to get up and go, he packs TOPS Alaskan Harpoon.
"With the Harpoon, Ed about does it all. He likes a sturdy knife that is more than a versatile pry bar. The Harpoon is a versatile knife capable of the harshest treatment as well as performing the most delicate tasks necessary for wilderness survival."
