TOPS Knives Tex Creek 20th Anniversary Edition Fixed 4.25" CPM-154 Drop Point Blade, Black Micarta and Red/Black Carbon Fiber Handles and Kydex Sheath - TEX-20
TOTEX20: 20th Anniversary Tex Creek
TOPS Knives turned 20 years old in October 2018 and to commemorate the accomplishment they released a limited run of the Tom Brown Tracker #3 made with special steel, handles, and sheath. The success of that model led TOPS to make this next 20th Anniversary Edition model.
The Tex Creek is an excellent all-around knife design. It's perfect around the campsite, if you're out on a hike, fishing for the day, and makes a great hunting knife as well. The original was designed by Leo Espinoza to be his personal hunting knife for deer season in Idaho a few years back. Tex Creek is the name of the unit where he grew up hunting in Idaho.
This will be a one-time run made with CPM-154 steel hardened to between 58-60 on the Rockwell C scale. It has thick, well-rounded handles with a white liner sandwiched between black canvas Micarta and a gorgeous red/black carbon fiber on top. The sheath is red Kydex with black Kydex on top and a burgundy leather dangler to finish off the package. This is a limited edition run of 500 pieces.
