TOPS Knives A-Klub Amanda Kaye Design Green Canvas Micarta Kukuri Fixed Blade AKLB-01
Designed by Amanda Kaye, best known for her appearance on Discovery's Naked and Afraid, the A-Klub is a singular take on the classic Kukuri by TOPS Knives' first female designer. Her design was inspired by the Native American gun stock war club and bares some resemblance while retaining the functional elements for the forward weighted, chopping powerhouse, the Nepalese Kukuri. The construction is TOPS differentially heat treated 1095 and solidly over-built with Green Canvas Micarta handles delivering a serious, hard use tool.
Brand new directly from TOPS Knives, USA.
Blade: Built with 3/16" thick, differentially heat treated 1095 high carbon tool steel, the blade of the A-Klub is finished with an acid washed and tumbled 'Acid Rain' finish that is discreet and hides wear from use. The blade is robust with a saber grind and recurve cutting edge that terminates in a Tanto-like point. A weight forward design delivers A-level chopping performance while a prominent top swedge enhances piercing performance and jimping on the spine offers added traction for fine tasks.
Handle: The full tang construction supports generous, contoured Green Canvas Micarta handle scales attached via black oxide stainless steel Allen bolts over black liners. A forward finger choil allows the user to choke up on the blade for control with a distal tapered handle that helps lock the handle in the hand for heavy chopping work. A hollow pin is provided for lanyard attachment.
Sheath: Black Kydex with snap loop and leather dangler.
1095 High Carbon Tool Steel: Highly popular, simple carbon steel. Used extensively by both production and custom knife makers. Low abrasive wear due to low carbide content but very tough and easy to sharpen. Not corrosion resistant and will rust without proper care.
