The TOPS Lite Trekker knife was designed and tested by TOPS VP Leo Espinoza, and acclaimed survivalist, Joe Flowers. Both known for quality hunting, hiking and survival essential designs, they aimed to make the Lite Trekker one of the lightest and most dependable fixed blades in the survival class. True to it's name, the fixed blade weighs only a little over 5 ounces making it ideal for carry in gear or on person as a primary tool or back-up.
Thin, yet sturdy, describes the full tang 1095 tool steel blade that has been shaped to form a drop point style. The drop point is a utility styled blade, and the deep belly can do everything from skin game to shave kindling. A black traction coating has been applied to the full tang for an extra protective layer over the carbon steel blade.
Tan micarta handles with blacked out color squares provide for good purchase with a bit of traction. Micarta is an excellent handle choice for a survival blade as it is impervious to extreme heat and cold and also maintains grip when wet.
Green paracord lanyard attached. Includes a kydex sheath with rotating spring steel clip for gear or belt carry. To complete the package, a TOPS Piggy Back fire starter has been attached as well.
