TOPS Knives Quickie Ultralight Three Finger Karambit Fixed Blade QCK-01
Designed by Leo Espinoza with law enforcement in mind, the TOPS Knives Quickie is a “3-finger” Karambit, meaning the 3rd finger from the blade should be placed in the hole. This specialized design leaves a nub after the ring, offers the user some ability to use the hand while still holding the knife. This makes a great options for LEO or Military personnel in CQB scenarios. Concealment and ease of use were of paramount concern and the 1/8” thickness, short overall length and low profile sheath and clip deliver in spades. On or off duty, the Quickie makes a great back-up option for self-defense.
