TOSSMT02: SWAT Spike Tanto Point Micarta
TOPS Knives
Officer Allen Garcia has been a police officer in Middletown, RI since 1988. Prior to that, he served as a sergeant in the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division. He has been assigned to both department and regionalized SWAT teams since 1991 and a member of NTOA (National Tactical Officers Assoc.) and IALEFI.

Portions of his testing and review included: "The knife comes in a variety of configurations, all models have roughly 5 inches of cutting surface, either Micarta or wrapped with paracord, full tang and 3/16" thick. One thing that is easily noticed when looking at the SWAT Spike is the pommel of the knife which is fashioned into a very practical pry bar. This knife fills the role perfectly for a SWAT operator looking for a tough, sensible fixed blade that won't take up much space on his person yet proved a myriad of uses. If you're looking for extremely rugged, outstanding quality knives made in America, I would strongly recommend you take a look at TOPS Knives as I am sure you will find what you are looking for."

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
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.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.

All Business, No BS!
I have been a Tops Knives collector for years, and this tanto point SWAT Spike knife is worthy of their name. Right off, I went for it for the chisel edge pry tip pommel, and chose the tanto point for further prying and penetrating ability as well. I saw the usefulness right away from times I had to pry open windows and jimmy doors as contract security before. With Tops' usual clockwise rotating belt clip for their kydex sheaths, it makes it easy to adjust to all kinds of angles for carry. This will be my heavy utility ''stash'' knife to complement the Becker Tac Tool I have had since being a rescue diver. Shaving hair off my arm right out of the box and their great hardcore finish and excellent micarta panels come with it-as always. A good and straight forward knife that can easily be a defensive fighter, the pommel as well was in my decision as a striking point in need. I have never been disappointed with Tops, and this knife is no exception. I highly recommend this knife, and the price is exceptional for the quality! The sheath is just as much up to standards as their blades.
