Description
TOAH906: Alaskan Harpoon
TOPS Knives
 
For the past 8 years this knife has been in constant demand, by soldiers, campers, survivalists and plain ol’ outdoor enthusiasts...Alaska the last frontier, is a huge and rugged state, with wildlife galore and an incredible landscape. This knife was named as such and since it looks similar to a harpoon... the name Alaskan Harpoon...

Dan Schechtman, noted author and survival guru, wrote in the Jan. 09 issue of Tactical Knives in his survival column...(About Ed Arnold, a well-known skilled practitioner of survival skills)..."He is either practicing his skills or working out. This guy knows his stuff. Ed is a serious knife buff and has an arsenal of quality-edged tools. When it is time to get up and go, he packs TOPS Alaskan Harpoon."

"With the Harpoon, Ed about does it all. He likes a sturdy knife that is more than a versatile pry bar. The Harpoon is a versatile knife capable of the harshest treatment as well as performing the most delicate tasks necessary for wilderness survival."

SPOT on
I bowhunt/kayak the Texas riverbottoms where the feral hogs are big and the alligators eat them, and I typically carry two knives. The Alaskan is the perfect large tool/hard use knife. I flattened the cutting angle profile a little with a diamond stick sharpener and the knife takes a wicked edge. I also tossed the sheath and made a leather one, a must for this big blade. It's a bit expensive but extremely tough so I won't hold back in putting it to work. The Alaskan is the knife to have when the going gets tough.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Just got this knife. EXCELLENT knife. It has 3 choils w/3 hand positions. Factory jimping on handle & blade works great, as does the thumb ramp. I made my own bow drill divots in the handle-it should have had them. 1/4" thick hard use knife. Came sharp but i sharpened it more. Still sliced paper & hair after batoning, feather sticking & carving. Sheath---not so much. Mine has 2 retention straps & still falls out of sheath if inverted & shaken 2x VERY lightly. IMHO---FAIL. I will get a custom sheath anyways-so no big deal to me, but maybe to others. Glad i bought it. It is so functional & ergonomically correct for a multi-purpose outdoor hard-use blade.
