Recieved this knife a few months ago and it's become my favorite daily carry over my beloved spyercos and bastions. Lots of feather sticking, beer can stabbing, box cutting, emergency flathead screwdriving, and an accident smack on the cement in my driveway and this lil guy is still as sharp as it was when it arrived. Highly recommend.
This has replaced my benchmade, kershaw, Gec, and several more. It feels great in my big hands and the action is smooth. It has been used on two deer and several chickens. Wash it dry it and oil it an back in the pocket it goes for more work. It's awesome
Pictures really do not do this knife justice. Absolutely gorgeous. It has a classy, handsome look with a modern feel. Action is great, the ball bearing is oh-so smooth, and the sharpness out of the box is razor sharp! Over time the micarta handle darkens from the oils in your hand, and looks even better. The deep clip isn't too flashy and conceals very well. The knife is not perfect, as I have chipped the blade. You might say that 390 steel would better suit it, but I would argue that the scandi grind is meant to be easier to resharpen with the softer steel, which holds its edge fairly well. TOPS will resharpen the blade for free if you send it to them. It is TOPS notch!
If you like Scandi knives this is a good one even though it is a modified scandi it works great, and even better modified as an EDC. Does all tasks well, outside of slicey food prep, which isn't really something I do anyway. The Italians did a great job on this knife it is smooth and looks good an no complains like I might have with other manufactures. I am very happy with this knife and would recommend this one to anyone.
This knife is unbelievable! Beautiful knife, very lightweight, but still thick enough to hold easily in my XXL hands. Razor sharp from the factory and easy to carry in my jeans. My hand doesn't get scratched reaching into my pocket like some knives. Nice Micarta finish on the handle, too! Thanks, BladeHQ!
Best Folder I own. This is now my EDC grail knife. TOPS makes the best knives and stands by every last one of them
I love this knife but the micarta scales do not really look as good as they do in the picture. The one I have has more of a hard textured plastic feel to it and you can't really tell that there is any canvas in it at all...I have a fixed mini Scandi knife with way better quality canvas micarta scales than this. My hopes are that Tops eventually comes out with more scale options or a better quality canvas micarta scale for this knife. Other that that I absolutely love this knife and would buy it again
This is one of those knives that just grows on you the more you use it, sort of like your favorite shoes or watch, etc. Super easy to flip open, drop-shutty action with great detent, no sharp edges, earthy micarta scales, great deep carry pocket clip, and super slicey. I will never get rid of this knife, in fact I think I better get another just in case I lose mine!
Amazing knife. I’ve carried it a few weeks now. Feels great in hand. Action is smooth, lock is solid. Stays sharp through a good amount of use. And in my opinion it just looks good. Would highly recommend.
This knife is incredible. Period. There is not one thing I would change on this knife. The Tops Mini Scandi, Folder, in my mind, ranks right up next to the Benchmade Osborne 940-2.You can't get any more perfect than that. I'm proud to own them both, along with many others. Thanks, Blade HQ, for really confusing my EDC- in a good way...
I wanted an elegant Italian built EDC knife and this fits the bill exactly. Fit and finish are flawless. Handle slightly lighter than pictured but imagine it will darken over time. Smooth as butter opening and razor sharp out of the box. Included bottle of knife oil is a nice extra. Pocket clip is reversible with the appropriate star screw driver bit. Very pleased with it.
Blade hq tries to trick you into thinking they are giving you 40% of on this knife when it retails fors 99$ lol so you are only saving 10 bucks which is farrrrrrr from 40% they are showing you 40% from msrp which isn’t what they knife actually sells for. Com’on blade hq I thought you and your marketing team were better than that!! : / don’t start acting like the other shady companies you all already price your knives a few bucks more than other reputable online stores which I won’t mention.
I have been carrying this knife daily going on one month. I really like it. I appreciate the high build quality, the fit and finish, and the overall look and feel. The micarta especially, not only gives the knife a very stylish, minimalst look, it is warm in the hand and grippy when wet.. There are however a couple of small things I would like to see tweaked. I would like the mechanism to feel more snappy. I am hoping that as I use the knife it will free-up a bit more. Don't get me wrong, it opens adequately, I would just like to feel a little more positive feedback. I would also like to see Tops continue this flipper collaboration with the Italian knife companies
My first Tops knife and first knife with Scandi blade. This knife is super sharp out of the box. It flips open great for such a small knife. The lock up is very good, maybe a little early. The blade centering is perfect on my knife. I like the micarta handles, wish they had a little more texture, but they are still very good. It seems that it will be a great little edc knife. I wish it were just a little bigger. Build quality is very good. Good value for the price I paid.
Love the action and materials but unfortunately my grind was a touch uneven. It still functions beautifully but for the price I wanted more quality control.
