The Hoffman Harpoon XL was designed by Terrill Hoffman, an International Hunter and Photographer. Founder of "PWYP" Practice What You Preach, the Outdoor Survival Outing.
Survival expert Dan Shectman of Tactical Knives Magazine had the following to say about the Hoffman Harpoon:
The TOPS/Hoffman Harpoon offers a unique multi-purpose survival tool much like those carried by the stone age hunters. The Hoffman Harpoon is a useful piece of survival cutlery, worn in its neck sheath, it is always with you. Crafted from quality steel and comfortable to use, it fills the niche the small knife occupies in the woodsman's kit. The Hoffman Harpoon is reminiscent of the earlier time when every tool had to be a multi tool.
Features a 3.25" 1095 high carbon steel blade with black traction coating. Full tang construction with paracord wrapped handle. Includes a nylon neck sheath, Lansky Quick Fix sharpener kit, field fire starter kit and can opener!
