The Fieldcraft Knife was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft (BOB), a coalition of men across North America focusing on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over. The Fieldcraft Knife is the culmination of their knowledge, combining experiences from; the broad and humid rain forests, the arid and scorpion-littered deserts, and the frigid northern lands that span the Americas.


The knife is 25cm (10") long in total, with a blade length of 11.5cm (4½"). This makes a compact, but extremely serviceable knife. The Fieldcraft's blade is 0.47cm (3/16") thick, and made of 1095 High Carbon steel. The cutting edge is a modified Scandinavian Grind, which is very effective for carving, skinning and other general woods work. With a rockwell hardness of 56-58, the ease of sharpening is astounding. That is if you ever get to sharpen the blade. As the hardness and edge geometry work beautifully together to make a long lasting edge.


The handle is one of the most ergonomic on the market, sporting several useful additions. Although knives with a lot of frills often end up lacking, the additional items found on the Fieldcraft knife were selected from experience and critiqued in every step of design, development and production. Being made of canvas micarta, the handle will never let you down. The bow drill divot on the handle is frictionless and makes starting those primitive fires almost effortless. The "Thumb Scallops", formed on the hilt of the handle offer more comfort and control when using specialized carving and skinning grips. The pommel of the blade is simply the tang of the knife exposed enough to allow impact from a baton to not affect the handle (though the micarta is definitely tough enough to take such abuse). On the exposed pommel, you will find a scraper specially designed by one of The Brothers of Bushcraft for striking ferro rods in a safe and efficient manner.


The sheath is a strong, durable Kydex, with a steel belt clip. This arrangement allows a safe, secure and comfortable carry on the belt, pack strap, or even around the neck. With a built in Ferro-rod attachment point, the sheath now doubles as a minimalist survival kit.


The Fieldcraft knife has had heavy duty abuse, and testing done in the wilderness of Canada, where local survival experts Mors Kochanski, Dr. Gino Ferri, and many others have deemed her a "Serviceable Field Knife". These words are exactly what she is meant to be. From carving netting needles and trap triggers, to splitting logs in two, the TOPS Knives/Brothers of Bushcraft Fieldcraft Knife will do just about any chore that you can throw at her in a wilderness survival scenario.


This knife is available in both a tan-bladed and black-bladed variant. See "You may also be interested in the following product" below.

    Brilliant

    What a fantastic knife! I'v had it for a few months now and have been using if for many tasks. From cutting rope , hacking off branches of trees to build shelter and even some carving work, it has not disappointed. When it arrived it was razor sharp and could easily cut fine hairs on my arm. Even after a good amount of use it held its edge and was easy to sharpen back to is razor sharp abilities. It looks great and is easy to take on and off your belt thanks to the clip. I went for it in this finish as in my option it looks a bit more like a bushcraft knife than some of the other finishes available. The firesteel works well and i found it easy to use. When I first got mine the sheath was very tight so be carful with the first few times you draw the knife out but after a bit of use it becomes easier and know its no problem at all. I would highly recommend it and a big thanks to Heinnie who gave me some good advice when I was deciding what knife was best for me. Also for getting it to me so quickly!

    Tops Fieldcraft

    Posted by Steve@Northumberland on 4th Jan 2015

    Such a handsome fixed blade in its coyote/tan/desert finish, don't you think ? What a great design from the B.O.B. Beautifully made in the USA by Tops Knives. This model has a slimmer handle than the other two models. As stated by Mr Craig Powell in the Tops video. The Fieldcraft has a blade length of 118mm (just over 4.5"). The handle is 125mm long (just under 5"). Stock 4.76mm thick. Extended tang .25" long. Balance point, just behind the first scale bolt. Now this was designed for all age groups and genders. So if you are an "outdoors" young person, this is well worth saving-up for. But you might have to get you Dad to buy it for you. You might need to get two, because as soon as he sees it, he is going to want one as well !
