The TOPS Knives Smoke Jumper has been designed and built for use by wild land fire fighters. These hard core individuals parachute into remote areas to directly combat wildfires. The thick and super strong blade can handle batoning and prying if required to clear brush to create firewalls. It features a strong reinforced tipped blade that can handle the strong downward strokes to penetrate and split wood.
The Blade: Black Traction coated 1/4" thick blade has one of the beefiest blade tips on the market. A large raised thumb ramp has jimping on both sides for two position placement. When used with the finger choil the front of the ramp facilitates light cutting chores.
The Handle: Twin black linen micarta scales are bolted to the tang with one pronounced finger groove and extended butt end with lanyard hole. Jimping on the handle spine provides additional traction in the palm area for more control.
The Sheath: Form fitted Kydex with rotating spring steel belt clip.
