The Baja 3.0 knife is the result of simple design and fine execution. The lines are simple yet effective. The 3 inch blade can adequately handle a wide variety of tasks, such as fashioning wooden implements, building fire and shelter, or taking an animal apart. The 1/8" thick, 1095 high carbon steel can take a long slice with ease. The simple handle design with its grooved green canvas Micarta scales, enables the user excellent traction in most circumstances.

TOPS has taken the time to develop a high quality steer hide sheath, which can be worn vertically on your belt or easily tied to your pack.

Amazing Blade, perfect for EDC.
Kyle H. on May 28, 2019

So, i've been carrying the Baja 3.0 for a month now, i'm a tradesmen and i love it. It's small enough not to be scary, you know how people get. Leather sheath is amazing, i carry my blade scout style. 1095 is good, but i'd like some better options in steel. My only complaint, it shows it has a paracord landyard, it doesn't really come with one, easy fix make your own. Also, my younger brother who is 12, he's getting really into bushcraft, and loves the blade for his shelter building.

Small But Very Useful
Deborah T. on May 31, 2016

This is a great knife to add to a collection of EDC or camping/hiking knives. It arrived sharp with a leather sheath that surprisingly held this knife securely in place. The quality is evident but expected with TOPS knives. I have medium size hands so this knife works extremely well for me, but if you have large hands the handle may be somewhat small. The jimping on the blade allows for slightly more space and adjustment of hand placement. The finger notch is sized well and prevents my finger from crossing the blade. Overall, I love this little knife! It has many uses both in the wilderness and EDC.

A sweet li’l buschrafter...
Steven S. on Mar 22, 2019

This is an exceptional knife for the price. I love it. Performs above its price point and holds an edge very well. It was my first intro to Tops, and I chose wisely. The sheath is perfect if you dig leather. Small enough to disappear, large enough to get most jobs done. I own several LT Wright knives (which are fantastic), but often find myself reaching for this little bugger for finesse work when I’m also packing a monster blade for the mean stuff. Git yoo wun!

Great little EDC
Eric B. on May 10, 2018

I wear this scout style, feels like nothing is there. Very sharp, performs very well in small bushcraft tasks and great tool for shot gunning beers and opening boxes and stuff. this thing is sweet dude. Nice leather sheath TOPS, we like that leather, you know that nice pungent smelling American leather mmm yeah... leather

Great EDC Fixed Blade
Jonathan P. on Dec 26, 2015

This is perfect for those that what to carry a fixed blade everyday. It is amazing. Also the sheath is a thing of beauty. You can literally carry it any way you see fit in the sheath.

Overall, I'm impressed
David K. on Jan 30, 2019

I was researching a lot of different discrete fixed blade knives before I bought this one. It has a sleek profile for it's size and comes in a very nice leather sheath which was a huge seller for me because I can't stand kydex sheaths for knives and their overly strong tension clips. If you grip down hard on the handle, it's not quite comfortable but you won't lose it. It's full flat ground, and the micarta is fairly contoured. I love that you can carry this on you belt vertically or horizontally. The jimping on this isn't my favorite and I could do without it. Also, where the grind meets the plunge line or bevel, it is a bit uneven on the one side. I would still highly recommend this knife even with the couple above mentinoned quirks.

New for EDC
Richard E. on Sep 5, 2020

Was (perhaps still am) looking for a smaller fixed blade for EDC. This knife is a good size for my EDC needs. I have a full three finger grip. Once I add a lanyard it will be very easy to draw from the sheath and add a little length to the grip. It is up to Tops usual quality. The leather sheath is high quality as well. Very large handed folks will need to look for a handle in the 4 inch range I feel.
