TEX CREEK HUNTER ..WHEN IT'S TIME TO GO AND GET SOME!…


This knife is a finely designed, rugged tribute to the men and women who hunt and fish in the Tex Creek area in Southeast, Idaho.


This wildlife management area which includes two national forests, is home to an abundance of diverse wildlife and is accessible starting about 10 miles from the TOPS Knives shop facility. Open range, high rugged mountains, waterways and large forests provide the hunter and fisherman a variety of diverse terrain to aquire: ELK, BEAR, MOUNTAIN LION, WOLF, MOOSE, PHEASANT, TURKEY, QUAIL, RABBIT, DUCK, GOOSE, STEELHEAD AND SALMON.


The fact that this Tex Creek area is so close to TOPS, enables their designers and knife makers the ability to field test in their own backyard. Since many of their staff grew up in this setting, they have ample opportunity to evaluate the use of their knives and tools under the most adverse conditions. The Tex Creek is a fine example of a high quality, good looking 'Working Knife'.


The designer, Leo Espinoza, created a new look on this specific blade. At TOPS, they call it 'BLACK RIVER WASH’. The uncoated finish clearly shows the heat treat line along the blade edge. The darkened steel pattern is unique on every blade. This creates that 'Broken In, Rustic look' and feels just like an old pair of comfortable boots. The darkened Micarta scales are screwed onto the handle and a large cord holder is accentuated at the back of the handle. the handles are designed and built for a positive grip and for extended periods of use. A simple and useable design is reinforces by a sturdy 3-16" thick blade and full tang handle.


THIS IS A KNIFE THAT PERFORMS WITH EXCELLENCE IN THE FIELD AND LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE AN OLD TRUSTED FRIEND, ANYWHERE THAT YOU GO.

    A vastly under rated, versatile knife

    Posted by Adam on 16th Dec 2017

    This knife is an excellent design: the shape has a clipped, piercing point with out sacrificing its strength as Bowie tips often do. The Gimping covers enough of the spine of the blade to allow a varied level of control depending which notch you lock the tip of your thumb into. The knife sits well in a reverse grip too, the gimping on the back of the handle an inch from the hilt focuses pressure from the index finger once the thumb is wrapped around the butt of the handle. This last feature leads you to wonder whether the knife has tactical applications too, rather than just being a bush craft oriented hunting knife. In terms of size, it is a small knife, but due to the thickness of the blade stock it is stout and reassuring in terms of its feel, I like it alot, the handle is well sized - its totally different from all the other knives I own - combining tactical use with good working knife attributes - everyone should have one of these. A good sheath too - quality leather in a design that carries high on the hip. The knife is easily withdrawn with adequate pressure from the little finger of the drawing hand - just enough of the handle shows to allow this due to the cut of the sheath. Excellent.

    Best tops I have

    Posted by Dave Barker on 25th Oct 2016

    Great HH service as usual. I own 40 tops knives and by far this is the finest most versatile knife I have, I have made dinner with it many times (my Mrs also loves the knife and I won't let her use it). Also fantastic General camp utility blade. I put a 25 degree sabre grinde on it as soon as I realised how much use it would get. I've made feather sticks and a try stick just for the hell of it. It is fantastic,. The sheath is good quality leather and well constructed. Cannot recommend this knife highly enough.

    Can't beat it

    Posted by Alex on 23rd Oct 2014

    Absolutely. Can't beat the quality of both the knife and the sheath. TOPS are hands down the best brand you can't get for your money. Have used a few of their products and no fault in any.

    A thing of beauty

    Posted by Kahn Nage on 16th Aug 2014

    Ordered Thursday night received Saturday morning on a standard delivery. The quality of this knife is obvious right out of the sheath. It's fantastic, good thick full tang, sharp, comfortable handle and the sheath it comes with is quality, has that nice fresh leather smell. Nice length of blade and nice handle/blade proportion. My first TOPS knife, won't be my last.
