TOPS Knives
 
The Operator 7 is huge! TOPS Knives went big with thick steel and handles to make a hefty, well-balanced knife that will excel as a workhorse tool. It also has those classic American fighting knife aesthetics that make it look every bit as good as it will perform.

Made out of 5/16" thick 1075, the differentially heat treated blade is impact resistant on the edge with a very strong spine. The handles start with tan canvas Micarta on the bottom sandwiched with black G10 on top that has a great texture for grip. The entire handle is also over 1" thick once assembled to fill out the user's hand much like an ax or hatchet handle would.

Because it is a tool, it's got to be useful and it's got to be comfortable. It's made for the men that don't back down. This knife will find its place with door kickers, survivalists, and weekend warriors alike. The rounded handles and hand guard make it a joy to use and the finger choil allows the user great precision for finer cuts. The 6.5" of cutting edge will suffice for the vast majority of cutting tasks, and the weight will help the knife do a lot of the work itself. The included Kydex sheath with dangler attachment makes it easy to carry into whatever territory you find yourself.

Awesome Knife, Sheath Junk
The knife itself is great. Tanks should be built this tough. It is crazy sharp, be exceptionally careful. Everything about the knife itself is top shelf. I'm not crazy about the grip. Perhaps my size 8 hands are too small for it. I have t other Tops knives without a grip issue. The sheath us HORRIBLE❗ First, the 25 cent piece if junk sheath is a dangler. It bounces around, swings, makes noise, and try to remove the knife...fuhgedaboudit. You need a hacksaw and a crowbar. I shouldn't have to monkey around with all these issues. It should be field ready to deploy immediately. I'm done with these guys until they bring a decent leather sheath.

Heres an idea
Excellent knife. Period. if the dangler style sheath bothers you because the knife swings around and makes noise., use a simple length of string or para cord as a tie down at the bottom of the sheath and tie it down to your leg. I personally like how low the knife rides. But, to each their own.

great knife!
you really have to appreciate the craftsmanship of Tops knives. This knife is a great example. Its got a nice thick blade with a great heat treat that's tough and durable to handle everything you can throw at it. The handle is comfortable for several different grip positions and the knife is well balanced overall. Obviously if you only wear, "ultralight gear", there's no reason you should be interested in buying this knife and then give it a bad review because you have a problem with the custom fit kydex sheath it comes with. Personally, when i go hiking or camping i like to be prepared for a worst case scenario. A midsized, robust knife is pretty close to the top of the list because lets face it, a butter knife isn't gonna get me very far. So if you're actually into hiking, camping, and possibly needing to defend yourself than this knife is for you. If you're a huge fan of Bear Grylls and like to pretend to camp....you should probably not buy this knife. BTW...if the dongle system isn't your thing, call Tops and request a belt clip or buy and aftermarket belt clip for the sheath. It really is a nice sheath...i don't know what else people want. Knife goes in, knife comes out, no rattle, great retention. i mean, the sheath is even ultra light! haha Get it? Just buy the knife as soon as they get more in stock.
