TOPS TEX Creek XL

The TOPS Tex Creek XL is a tribute to the men and women who hunt and fish in the Tex creek area in Southeast, Idaho.


The 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 shop facility. Open range, high rugged mountains, waterways and large forests provide the hunter and fisherman with a variety of diverse terrain to acquire: 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 makers the ability to field test in their own backyard. Since many of TOPS staff grew up in this setting, they have ample opportunity to evaluate the use of the knives/tools under the most adverse conditions. The Tex Creek Hunter XL is a fine example of a high quality, good looking “working knife.”


The designer, Leo Espinoza, created a new look on this specific blade. TOPS 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 reinforced by a sturdy 3/16” thick blade and full tang handle.

    Nice knife, but DO NOT store it in the sheath.

    Posted by T.E. on 7th Aug 2020

    Very well made and finished, but I have to take mark off for this...., I haven't actually had the opportunity to use it yet, but as with some of the 'Wild Pig Hunter' model owners I have found rust spots have started under the protective coating, obviously a reaction to the tanning methods used on the leather sheath. I would suggest Tops either need to change their leather supplier or switch to kydex for this type of knife finish. I have plenty of other cheaper carbon steel knives that I store in their leather without any rust problem, so leather & carbon steel doesn't always mean rust...

    I wouldn't normally spent this much dosh on a knife BUT I did on this occasion and I'm not sorry ! Great quality 1095 carbon steel blade , takes and holds a good edge . Not too thick or heavy but a surprisingly decent chopper . A really good alrounder if you want something bigger than a Mora / Hultafors . Expensive but will last you a lifetime!
