TOPS Knives Silent Hero Fixed Blade Knife 5.75″ Camo Drop Point, Smooth Micarta Handles, Black Leather Sheath
The TOPS Knives Silent Hero was designed by Anton du Plessis, who is the Chief of Operations for the Specialized Interdiction Unit of the Silent Heroes Foundation. His task is to combat the poaching crisis in South Africa. This knife has to be durable, versatile, and able to fill Anton’s needs in the field, which affected the design of the blade and the handle. It will definitely hold up to hard use. And with a weight of only 12 oz., you’ll be able to use the knife without getting fatigued too quickly.
You’ll notice there is a lanyard hole in the handle along with another in the finger guard. This is meant to allow the user to add a safety cord in order to improve the grip on the handle, which already allows for a solid grip. The finger-guard hole can also be used to assist in lashing to a spear when the situation warrants it.
There is a finger choil up into the blade to give you the ability to choke up and execute precise, fine cuts. The drop point design makes this knife great for slicing and gives the tip extra strength. So this knife will be a great knife for bushcraft, survival, and tactical purposes.
The black leather sheath is durable and looks great paired with this knife. The Silent Hero is held in place with a single snap loop that curls around the finger guard.
The Silent Hero is a great design that lends to a very versatile blade. It is not so large that it can only be used to chop but is also still big enough to complete most of the tasks you can do or want to do with a smaller knife.
