The TOPS ‘Wild Pig Hunter knife’ is a seriously hardcore design, the 7 1/2” blade is ground from ¼” thick 1095 high carbon steel.
To add to a highly functional blade, TOPS have enhanced the blade by adding the ‘Black River Wash’ finish, (you can see the heat treat line running along the entire blade edge), and the final clear coat will give years of dependable service.
The handle is designed using green canvas Micarta and the well known ‘Rocky Mountain Tread’ which ensures a positive grip even when in wet, muddy conditions.
The sheath is made in the USA of vegetable tanned, tough steerhide.
This is definitely a great backup knife for difficult situations and hard use.

    Best tops I own

    Posted by John on 1st Aug 2020

    I have near to 30 Tops and this is my favourite. It's balance and handling are superb. It arrived sharp but needed a little bit of stopping to get it hair popping sharp. The black river wash is great as it allows you to admire the hamon created by the sequential heat treatment. Mine sits in a A 1 sheath, thanks for the tip Steve, it really improved it's looks and functionality. I've had mine several years and have had no problems with corrosion so it's looking like Tops have made a bad batch, my guess is they have lacquered them while they are still damp from rinsing off the acid used for the black river wash. If you have one and want to remedy it yourself I would suggest stripping the lacquer of polish the blade with various grades of wet and dry using a block and then boil the blade in vinigar to bring out the hamon. Use some duraglit wadding to lightly polish the blackness of the blade then keep well oiled. You will also need to renew the sheath as it will have rust in it which will act as a catalyst and start the blade rusting again no matter how much oil you use.

    Poor Corrosion Resistance

    My tops wild pig hunter stated to rust when it was in the sheath, in doors also it’s oiled regular . So it’s just a rust bucket. Be aware

    just received my wild pig hunter

    Posted by big JW on 14th May 2019

    this is a very good knife and can understand why tops added this to their knife series, came to me very sharp, just needed 3 or 4 very light strokes on my fine oilstone to bring it injto a razor edged tool, I have seen some remarks about rust spots, checked minee under a strong magnified lighting and its completely clean of any blemish, to me this is a serious knife to pair up with one of my military bowie type knives for obvious reasons, its a very easily wielded knife nicely balanced for what its for. anyone seriously thinking of getting one then don't delay grab one while theyre available you wont be disappointed, onnce gripped in your hand you,ll know instantly why and what for, superb knife and thankyou for bringing it over her HH .

    Totally agree with Ben

    Posted by Eddiem on 22nd Feb 2019

    It's a major investment in a fantastic looking knife - but mine developed rust spots within a few weeks and there is no way you can deal with this without degrading the coating, so you have to be able to use this as a worker to justify the purchase. Fortunately for me it is a perfect length for bleeding out a deer, but otherwise, if it was e.g. bought for a collection I would be very upset. HH rules the online shopping experience - I do not know of any other trader/supplier who does so much to ensure that you are happy with your purchase - also they use Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird for delivery

    Slightly disappointed

    Posted by Ben on 18th Nov 2018

    Let me start by saying I own a number of flawless Tops knives that I love having in my collection. I love the ethos of the company and the way they manufacture knives. This one had been on my wishlist for a long time. My complaint isn't about the sheath as such, like other reviews. I had a kydex sheath made from a guy in the US and knew I always would before I even bought this. The sheath isn't too bad really, if leather and carbon steel are your thing. The knife itself is beautiful. Well balanced, typical flawless Tops grinds and workmanship. What I was disappointed with was finding small rust spots the instant I unpacked it. More disappointing still was the fact that it was underneath the protective coating they apply. Picking at the rust left very obvious marks where the protective coating flaked off. I decided to deal with these spots 3 days later, so I covered the blade in a very well known gun lubricant that I have used on my shotgun for years in the meantime. When I removed the blade from the sheath after that, the rust was spreading fast! Unfortunately, the only way I could deal with the rust was liberal application of WD-40 followed by rubbing with a magic eraser. This takes off the 'protective coating' and also the vast majority of the laser etching. For now I've coated it with a thin layer of grease until I get something more appropriate like a Tuf-Cloth. What I'm left with is not the part of my pristine collection I expected, but a rather expensive working knife. To be fair, it's marketed to be used hard and not fussed over, which is why I haven't been harsh on the star rating. It's every bit the beast I expected, but be dutiful with that rust! After many years shopping with Heinnie, I knew they would accept a return as soon as i spotted that rust under the coating, but ultimately i made the decision to not be kind to it and actually use it. To be fair, after a thorough cleaning, it looks good despite the markings pretty much vanishing.

    Great knife

    Posted by Ray IV on 8th Feb 2017

    I was pleasantly surprised when I received this knife. Perfect milling from guards to tip, and mine came very sharp. I used it a few months ago in below freezing weather batoning logs for our fire and the finish held up beautifully with very, and I mean very minor wear. I love this knife!

    Scabbard Upgrade

    Posted by SteelHeadSteve on 20th May 2015

    If like me you dearly love your WPH, but are not happy with the stock scabbard, I have found an upgrade. The Fallkniven A2 leather scabbard fits perfectly. And that's perfect with a capital "P". Even the retaining strap fits perfectly ! HH keep it in stock, click on Carry, then Sheaths and Holsters. Enjoy !

    Tops W.P.Hunter

    Posted by Steve@Northumberland on 10th Feb 2015

    It's a brave hunter who stands nose to snout, toe to trotter, with a boar. I was told of a man who lost his entire calf muscle to a boar. In one chomp. Boars can bite, big-time. The Tops W.P.Hunter is a very, very nice fixed blade. Mine arrived with a perfect bevel, choil to tip. Blade 8" long. Handle 5" long. Stock 6.15mm thick. Balance point at the integral guard. All specs. approx. The leather scabbard is OK. The leather is quite thick, about 3.5mm. It has no hard insert, or drain port. It has a good snap. The knife fits well, but it's not a snug fit. But the real question is this - When is HH going to offer us a custom kydex scabbard service ?

    Stout Knife, very average shath

    Posted by Phil from Wokingham on 19th Nov 2014

    HH had this on backorder for some time , when the email arrived telling me it was available I ordered immediately. The parcel arrived the next morning, top work Heinnie Haynes!!!! The knife is very stout, sharp and large. The blade is chemically darkened which partially conceals the normally over the top TOPS logos; and provides an element of corrosion control. This is a carbon steel blade so some after use care will be required.. All-in-all very pleased with the knife. The sheath , on the other hand is feeble. The mid-brown leather is quite soft, it marks and rubs easily and is far too big for the knife. Plenty of paracord is supplied to tie it all down but i would suggest that the leather tabs would soon be cut and therefore useless. Normally I prefer a leather sheath but this one is just not up to the standard of the knife.
