    TOPS LONER

    Posted by SteelHeadSteve on 1st Nov 2018

    I am told that "Bei-Koko Aibujutsu", is a type of Karate. But I am not 100% sure of that. The designer of this model, Jerry VanCook, seems to have lots of experience, and it shows when you hold the "Loner" in your hand. This is one of the best designed, compact fixed-blades, I have ever owned. I would say it's primary grip position is the reverse-grip. But it is also very good in the hammer-grip. And even though it has a compact handle, scale - 4+1x8th" long, it works very well in the sabre-grip, with the butt nesting in the palm of the hand, perfectly. The blade geometry is supreme, the tip is the reinforced diamond shape, favoured by Allen Elishewitz. Stock - 4.85mm. Blade - 4.5" (just over). Handle scale - 4+1x8th" long. Extended tang - 3x8ths". Balance point - .5" behind the first scale bolt. All specs approx. I note that it has sharpening choils, on both edges. Such attention to detail. The kydex scabbard offers a deep, firm, click-fit. It has Tops steel rotating clip. Thanks to HH for a great price. I am very pleased with my purchase.
