TOPS B.O.B. Fieldcraft - Tumble Finish

TOPS is proud to provide the Tumble Finish Brothers of Bushcraft (BOB). Many of their followers have asked for a version of the B.O.B. without a powder coat. The wait is over. The tumble finish on this knife will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of an already wonderfully useful knife. If you are not a fan of powder coating because it gets in the way when batoning or working with wood and other materials, you will love this new option.


The Fieldcraft Knife was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focused 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, to the arid and scorpion-littered deserts, to the frigid northern lands that span the Americas.


The cutting edge is a modified Scandinavian Grind, which is very effective for carving, skinning, and other general wood work. 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. 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 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 chopping through branches, the TOPS Knives/Brothers of Bushcraft Fieldcraft Knife will do just about any chore that you can throw at her to survive and thrive out there in the wilderness.

    Cracking all rounder

    Posted by Shaf on 1st Oct 2016

    Really like this knife for all the general duty tasks in bushcraft and outdoors. Feels solidly built and it excels and light chopping and splitting. Will happily baton smaller logs and limbs. Can be employed to general carving (pot hooks, tent pegs) but a bit to thick for finer work, performed well with food prep but was a little too cumbersome for some smaller game prep. Well made sheath for tops in Kydex, included fire steel is ok but replaced with another and secured with shock cord. The shango notch is interesting, managed to get some sparks after setting a file to it however didn't fine it the most efficient method compared to others. Happily carried this all over the place and has always performed well. If you are after an all rounder then you can't go wrong with the B.O.B

    TOPS B.O.B fieldcraft knife.

    Posted by Jess on 28th Oct 2014

    I have just bought and received this very beautiful and well thought out knife. My one critic about this knife is that the groove at the end of the hilt for the fire steel . I was unable to make a spark with it, this maybe to my lack of technique rather than the design . The weight of the knife is perfect and the scandi grind easy to maintain. If you are looking for a bushcraft knife this is it. Fantastic services as always from HH.
