When it comes down to either your life or his, you know you’ve got the leveler, and the decision is yours. The reality is clear. You are prepared for the action. The military’s new concept of fast moving, small unit operations, embedded with their counterparts, are empowered by individuals with skills that most do not have. They are the few, willing to take risks most will not. They are more disciplined, and more Dedicated. These men set out to dominate, eliminate, and control. the mission before the man. Since the inception of Tops knives in early 1998, some of these individuals from small specialized units, have contacted us for direct support by making the right tool for the right job (design by requirements). Whether covert missions or day to day operations, Tops’ Collaboration with the units produces not what we think they need, but what they actually need. When the mission is complete and the need for secrecy abates, Tops can then put the feel of success in the hands of those that can and do appreciate a great tool, with or without a mission. The Delta unit 3 has in addition to its activities in the field, undergone extensive testing and use by outdoorsmen throughout the Rocky mountains.

What do you need a knife for
If youre a knife enthusiast, its unlikely that you need a new knife, but the same concepts can apply to you as for those people who are replacing a lost knife or had one break and actually do need a new knife. The most important question is, what will this knife be used for most frequently If you work in a field where youre regularly opening packages, mail, or cutting a lot of paper-like material, youre going to want something different than if youre looking for a concealable self-defense knife. If you work outside the city in rural areas or in nature, youre going to want something totally different than someone who works in a restaurant. If youre a hunter, youll probably want something different than a military guy or gal about to be deployed overseas. Those are obvious callouts, but its the right place to start.
Thats you Should Consider
Blade thickness
Blade thickness – thicker blade stock typically equals stronger knives but can sacrifice sharpness.
Edge geometry
Edge geometry – axes tend to have wider blade edges (up to 30 degrees or so on each side of the edge) and slicers tend to have narrower (say 17 to 20 degrees) for good reasons. Wider edges are less prone to chipping and rolling than thin edges. Thin edges are sharper and cut better (more cleanly). There is always a trade-off.
Blade type
Blade type – Each has its strengths/weaknesses and preferred applications (again, it’s all subjective). There are drop points, tanto points, Sheep’s foot, clip points, and many more to choose from.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance – Do you want a worry free stainless steel that you never have to worry about cleaning, but may be very difficult to resharpen, or do you want a carbon steel blade that will rust when wet, but sharpens easily (keep in mind, many modern carbon steel blades are coating to protect from rust).
