The TOPS Knives' Cuma Tak-Ri is a tactical Kukri knife that is lightweight and fast. This is a Waysun "Johnny" Tsai designed knife with input from TOPS Knives founder/owner Mike Fuller and Brent Beshara, the creator of the Besh Wedge. Johnny wanted to create what he considered to be a truly functional knife that could be used for CQTcombat, street defense along with being an all around tool for the outdoor sportsman.
The Cuma Tak-Ri has a 3/16" thick full-tang 1095 steel Kukri blade with thin Micarta slabs. The blade has a long sweeping edge with "Shark Teeth" serrations on the primary edge. The top edge is sharpened for reverse swings. The Woodsmen style handle is designed to give the user the ability to not only use this knife in full chopping/swinging mode, but also to choke up on the blade for more delicate tasks. The base of the handle can be used to pry and scrape, further extending the ground this knife can cover.
Waysun Johnny Tsai has over 25 year of hands-on martial arts teaching experience and is considered to be one of the world’s foremost experts in practical street defense. His C.U.M.A. (Combined Universal Martial Applications) program and A.R.C reality based fighting program (All Range Combat) are among his latest and greatest ventures.
