TOPS Operator  7 Knife

The  Next  Big  Thing  from  TOPS  Classic  American  ͞fighting͟  knife  aesthetics  create  the  basis  for  the  Operator  7.  TOPS  went  big  with  thick  steel  and  handles  to  make  a  hefty,  well-balanced  knife  that  will  excel  as  a  workhorse  tool.  Because  it  is  a  tool,  it’s  also  got  to  be  comfortable.  The  rounded  handles  and  hand  guard  make  it  a  joy  to  use  and  the  finger  choil  allows  the  user  to  get  great  precision  for  finer  cuts.  The  included  Kydex  sheath  with  dangler  attachment  makes  it  easy  to  carry  on  the  job  site,  in  the  woods,  or  in  whatever  scenario  you  find  yourself.

The  Operator  7  is  huge!  We  went  big  with  thick  steel  and  handles  to  make  a  hefty,  well-balanced  knife  that  will  excel  as  a  workhorse  tool.  But  it  also  has  those  classic  American  fighting  knife  aesthetics  that  make  it  look  every  bit  as  good  as  it  will  perform.  Made  out  of  5/16"  thick  1075,  the  differentially  heat  treated  blade  will  be  impact  resistant  on  the  edge  with  a  very  strong  spine.  The  handles  start  with  Tan  Canvas  Micarta  on  the  bottom  sandwiched  with  Black  G10  on  top  that  has  a  great  texture  for  grip.  The  entire  handle  is  also  over  1"  thick  once  assembled  to  fill  out  the  user's  hand  much  like  an  ax  or  hatchet  handle  would.  Because  it  is  a  tool,  it’s  got  to  be  useful  and  it's  got  to  be  comfortable.  It's  made  for  the  men  that  don't  back  down.  This  knife  will  find  its  place  with  door  kickers,  survivalists,  and  weekend  warriors  alike.  The  rounded  handles  and  hand  guard  make  it  a  joy  to  use  and  the  finger  choil  allows  the  user  to  get  great  precision  for  finer  cuts.  The  six  and  a  half  inches  of  cutting  edge  will  suffice  for  the  vast  majority  of  cutting  tasks,  and  the  weight  will  help  the  knife  to  a  lot  of  the  work  itself.  The  included  Kydex  sheath  with  dangler  attachment  makes  it  easy  to  carry  into  whatever  territory  you  find  yourself.

Great Blade!

One heck of a blade! As stated, this blade is thick, sharp out of the box, and over all, awesome. I use mine as a truck knife, because it has many purposes for use. Great blade.

Best possible design for a knife this solid, great if you know how to use one

The handle and the knife are clearly designed to work in harmony. Weight distribution and blade shape similarly are tuned ideally. Good balance makes even the carry a singularly positive experience. I made a pouch sheath sans-snap or strap for mine with a slight rear cant. Molding 8 oz. leather around the hilt and handle is sufficient to keep the knife stable in any ordinary position. On the hip or in the hand, I never feel that the knife will move a different direction than I move. The tempered 1075 is very sharp. Similar to early-era metal used in swords and litter-cutting knives for medics, this steel will dig through rubble without breaking and can be quickly resharpened. The shape is that of a serious fighter. The designer's knowledge is beautifully demonstrated in the details of the hilt. Heft one!
