    Default TOPS B.O.B Review

    This is not my review though the review has prompted me to drool and start scheming to get one soon, here is the link for the best review of the knife I have seen as of now.

    Although long winded, it was an informative review. I checked on the price and it seems pretty fair.

    I kept looking and looking, finally got one. Very comfortable handle, very sturdy knife. The blade is just "Beefy" enough without being a "Sharpened Pry Bar". Keep in mind the blade is a billboard for Tops, they go a bit
    crazy with all the writing on the blade, it bothers some but I don't mind. Don't care for the "Shango Notch" but I usually have something else to strike a Ferro Rod.
    They call it a modified Scandi grind but to me it looks more like a Saber grind, but then again I don't care what they call it if it works, and it does.
    Great "one tool" option if you are inclined to go that way, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I highly recommend getting a leather sheath for the knife. I got one from Robert Jones - http://www.handsewnleather.com and it really makes the package "First Class".

    A nice knife option. Looks sturdy enough. I would have to get a leather sheath and get that coating off the blade though.

    I have 2--I liked it so much I bought my wife one

    it is a Carving fool of a knife--but a LOUSY Chopper

    I love how it feels in hand--and how it Carves/Whittles--but it a by far one of the WORST Choppers I have tested in it's size range

    If you are looking for a knife that can "do it all"--this is not your knife

    If you are looking for a knife that can handle Bushcraft and other Knife chores-stans chopping --TRY THIS PUPPY OUT

    I tested it against the Tops Apache Dawn,and a Becker BK-10 and BK-2

    I usually have a kukri or machete of some sort with me anyway so chopping isnt an issue for me

    for me its a helluva of a knife.it fits my hand perfectly,just the right size.easy to use and holds a good edge.they dont pay me to advertise for them so i stripped the blade& put a vinegar patina on it.i dont like kydex sheaths so i'm planning on making a leather sheath for it,other than that its a good all purpose knife.i will probably end up getting another one.the esee 4 has been delegated to a back up knife
