TOPS El Chete - Dangler

This blade was designed to replace your axe in your survival kit. With a 6mm thick blade that is a full 30cm long, it will do that very well. Even though it's so large, the knife still weighs in under 907 grams.


El Chete is the first TOPS knife to be released with TOP's blade finish called Acid Rain. Because of the process they use, the finish varies slightly from knife to knife so that each person gets something unique. TOPs wanted the handles to be thick enough to fill each user's hand like a hatchet or small axe handle would, so they decided to use sandwiched Micarta. It's well rounded for comfort and the black canvas Micarta underneath the green canvas Micarta adds even more to the aesthetics of this piece.


The sheath is an out-the-front design with all the bells and whistles. You just pull up slightly then out the front so that you don't have to strain to pull the knife all the way up through the sheath. There is a strap that when snapped into place, helps immensely with the retention of the blade. They've also made it available with their rotating spring steel clip or a leather dangler attachment so that each user picks the right fit for him or her. This version has the leather "dangler" belt loop.

    Check out my chopper

    Posted by Stephen on 11th Sep 2018

    Size matters and this is a beast. Razor sharp out the box and hold the edge. I've used this to take down a small tree in the back garden. I had the chainsaw to do the job so was going to use it to take out the smaller branches but I got carried away and just about done it'. Tho chainsaw was the last thing to cut it down but wow. I loved it so much I bought another to go in my collection. Buy it , trust me you'll not have buyer remorse. Well done hh.

    CLEAVER again

    Posted by COLLECTOR on 4th Jul 2017

    Since I consider the TOPS EL CHETE being mainly a Camp knife, I have removed the dangler thing entirely from the scabbard, as I am going to have it in my backpack, carrying such a big knife at the belt could draw unnessesary attention, some might even find it provoking, and there is no need for that

    CLEAVER

    Posted by COLLECTOR on 7th Apr 2017

    As my nickname indicates I am more of an collector of knives, than an actual user of knives.
    I recently purchased this cleaver/knife/machete, a great thank you to Olly and HH for an kind and effective service; it was sent to me with UPS on Friday 30th June, and I recieved it on Monday 3rd July in CPH-DK.
    The TOPS EL CHETE came razorsharp out the box, it is a rather large and a bit heavy knife, and I have no doubt that it will do the job, whether that is chopping down smaller trees, splitting wood or larger lumps of meat, the El Chete, at least in my eyes has some similarities with a Butchers cleaver, and I love it, this knife is definitely going to be tested both on chopping down smaller trees, splitting wood and a lump of meat, as for finer works, such as making feathersticks, I am sure it can, but for such, I will use a smaller knife.
    Once again, thanks to Olly and the team at HH for an exellent service.
