    i just recieved an email notifying me that my package has left Des Moines, and im expecting it in the next day or so. ive never owned a TOPS brand knife, but the colaboration knives that Buck and TOPS have done are top quality, so i figured id give the TOPS knives a look. i'll get some pics and a review up next week. im going camping this weekend so i hope to have it here by saturday.

    check out this little beast i ordered...3/8" thick!:eek:

    personally, i like to EDC a smaller fixed blade on my belt(4" blade or less), as well as a folder in my pocket. if i like it as much as i think i will, this little guy just might replace my beloved Becker BK11.

    i got the Lil Roughneck, and im very happy with it. stout as hell, and was hair popping sharp right outta the box. i didnt get to do any camping last weekend due to the weather, so i didnt get to really give it a proper workout, but i was able to put it to use sharpening some marshmallow sticks for the firepit in the yard. LOL

    check out how thick this little guy is....

    i forgot to mention, it isnt too bad of a slicer as well, despite its thickness...i cleaned up and cubed up some deer loins for stew the other night. usually i use a thin blade for the cleaning em up, but i figured id try out the thick little SOB and it worked pretty darn well.

    Looks like it will stand up to a lot of batoning.
