Joshua Swanagon is a knife designer who is constantly reinventing the wheel. TOPS Knives joined with Swanagon for the all new C.U.T. 4.0.

Have you ever wanted a tool that combines the defensive and combat capabilities of a karambit with the usefulness and practical applications of a utility knife? Well, so has Swanagon. That’s what led him to design the C.U.T. 4.0.

Combining elements of a karambit-style knife with a classic drop point blade design create a blade that is comfortable as a fighting knife, an EDC knife, and even as a field knife.

The C.U.T. 4.0 has an MSRP of $170, but is currently on sale for an introductory price of $136.
