TOPS Knives is now offering its Fieldcraft knife in 154CM stainless, an upgrade some bushcrafters may prefer.
The Fieldcraft knife has been a popular model, which normally comes in 1095 high-carbon steel, TOPS officials maintain.
“TOPS is proud to present the Fieldcraft in 154cm stainless steel; 154cm is a high quality steel that makes excellent knives,” according to TOPS. “The Rockwell hardness is 58-60, and because it's stainless, it is a full heat treat and not a differential heat treat. Some of the bushcrafters out there will like this feature because with a small, simple modification, they can use the spine for striking a ferro rod or for scraping tasks.”
Like the original Fieldcraft, it features a 4.75 inch blade and several handle material options in micarta and G10.
The Fieldcraft was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focused on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over, TOPS officials maintain.
The Fieldcraft is now available for $200, down from $250.
