TOPS Knives Backpacker Bowie — One of the more unique fixers in our group is the TOPS Backpacker Bowie. A scaled down version of a modern Bowie knife, the Backpacker Bowie is 8.25" in overall length with 4.5" dedicated to its flared, clip-point blade. The blade is TOPS’ standard 1095 high carbon steel with a handsome tumbled finish and features a finger guard at the choil to keep the index finger safe. On the forward spine is a pot-lifter notch that can also be used to break wire. The handle features three finger grooves with green Canvas Micarta scales and there’s a lanyard hole at the base. In a nutshell, this is a knife that can wear a lot of hats. TOPS delivers the Backpacker Bowie with a Kydex sheath, replete with a rotating spring steel belt clip. MSRP is $150.
