TOPS C.U.T. 4.0

The TOPS C.U.T. 4.0 is one of my favorite fixed blade knives. It is one of my favorite because of several reasons. The design of this knife allows the holder a very strong grip. While cleaning deer and the like, no matter how much blood you get on the handle it will not slip from your hand.This knife comes razor sharp. It is light…See More

Hey Clint, how have you been? I while back I was supposed to do a knife review for you but tradgady struck here at home, with the loss of my darling wife of 42 years. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to do it for you. I am a man of my word and I want to do the review for you but I now have another problem. I built a cottage for one of my grand daughters with the help of alot of good friends. The last part was the plumbing. A good friend, that's  a plumbmer, came did the bathroom for me. Well none of my friends charged anything, so when they were finished their different jobs, I would give them each a knife. I buy some inexpensive knives as presents every year. Well, when my plumbmer was finished I told my grand daughter for them to go in the house and let Jeff, pick out a knife. Well some kind of way, that Case knife got mixed up with my give aways. When they came out of the house, to my surprise, Jeff had the Case knife. I didn't have the heart to take it back, Soooo, I figured, I just buy another knife and send it back to you but I am having trouble finding that model Case knife. I just want you to know, I will make it good, just give me a little time. Thanks, your buddy, Rob

I read your review in Knives Illustrated of Pat Crawford's Survival Staff. That was just great. I don't think I have ever seen a better staff with more bells and whistles. As always some great insight!

Thank you for the warm greeting.

My bad, I missed that completely! Now I see what you are talking about, interesting how those serrations lay out on the knife.

At 16:00 on September 10, 2012, Steve Hanner said…

As always a great article in Knives Illustrated on Tradition or Tactical Clint. Some great reviews, contrasts and comparisons. You had some great points about that Case single blade trapper may have to eventually get one and try it. Loved seeing Steve Williams too. I wish it would have had the picture of the CRKT Ignitor, with the Veff serration system though. It sounds like an interesting design.

Wow Clint, that is a great knife, I will check it out soon. My wife has developed a medical problem, so it might slow me down. How are the little children doing? Please keep em, smiling.

Knife companies have done contracting for years, nothing new. It is odd though as it should be Case contracting for somebody else.  Time may be catching them and they must be more nimble or they will lose what they have. New steels, popular scales, good solid quality, good design..I mean its like blocking and tackling in football, you get those right you can win some games. It is all about the fundamentals. But the thing is the new kids on the block are doing more with less. Lower labor costs, better steels, innovative designs, good quality, solid service. Its a lot to take on to preseve market share.
