Worth it, so so worth it
Archie N.
I got this as a gift after seeing it in the Shot Show videos and it's not disappointed me one bit. I had wanted a good fixed blade for a while now and finally decided on this. It's not too heavy and chops anything I have thrown at it. (*Because it was scary sharp out of the box.) It's even replaced my tomahawk for innawoods EDC. (*I am lying I take it everywhere with me) The fit and finish is really good and I know I will be able to pass it down to my son one day. The acid rain finish came out really well as did the scales. The sheath is super thick and durable. The clip works well enough that you don't have to take your belt on and off necessarily to use it and it's secure. All in all, a great first Tops knife and birthday present. It wont be my last Tops Knife for sure.
