TOAH906: Alaskan Harpoon
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."

An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
This product is USA born and raised.
