TOPS Knives
The TOPS Knives Silent Hero was designed by Anton Du Plessis, who is the Chief of Operations for the Specialized Interdiction Unit of the Silent Heroes Foundation. His task is to combat the poaching crisis in South Africa. This knife has to be durable, versatile, and able to fill Anton's needs in the field, which affected the design of the blade and the handle. It will definitely hold up to hard use. And with a weight of only 12oz., you'll be able to use the knife without getting fatigued too quickly.

You'll notice there is a lanyard hole in the handle along with another in the finger guard. This is meant to allow the user to add a safety cord in order to improve the grip on the handle, which already allows for a solid grip. The finger-guard hole can also be used to assist in lashing to a spear when the situation warrants it.

There is a finger choil up into the blade to give you the ability to choke up and execute precise, fine cuts. The drop point design makes this knife great for slicing and gives the tip extra strength. So this knife will be a great knife for bushcraft, survival, and tactical purposes.

The black leather sheath is durable and looks great paired with this knife. The Silent Hero is held in place with a single snap loop that curls around the finger guard.

The Silent Hero is a great design that lends to a very versatile blade. It is not so large that it can only be used to chop, but is also still big enough to complete most of the tasks you can do or want to do with a smaller knife.

It is our intention at TOPS to ensure that a portion of all sales of this knife are used to help the Silent Heroes Foundation in their endeavors.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
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.
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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Great multi use option
Love this Blade! I think it's a hybrid between a survival and chef blade great for a multitude of outdoor tasks. Especially good for the camp cook of the family. Can also serve as a great self defense knife by itself or attached to a spear pole. Handle is on small side but perfect for me and love the ability to choke up w choil, ramp and perfect jimping for fine tasks. 3/16 thickness is thick enough to survive a pounding but thin enough to be a good slicer. Lastly the black river wash finish is the best available. Way better than the standard bLack traction coating most manufacturers are using. 5 Stars 👍🏻🇺🇸
