Last year was a big year for TOPS Knives, putting the company on the map as one of the premiere knife makers on the planet. So far, 2016 appears to be no different.

New for 2016 is TOPS’ Desert Nomad, a solid tactical design with well-thought features.

The splitter on the pommel provides a less-than-lethal strike point and works well for prying. There is an aggressive full-hand guard to prevent slipping with holes for lanyard options.

The blade is long enough for slashing cuts with a tip design that provides strength and penetration power. It’s a combat-oriented design perfect for entry and small space conflicts.

The Desert Nomad has an MSRP of $220, but is currently available now for $176.
