The TOPS Fieldcraft 3.5 Mini BROS is the smaller version of the very popular TOPS B.O.B. Fieldcraft. The name 'mini' implies that we are dealing with a small knife. However, with a 9.7 cm blade this is not really true. The Fieldcraft 3.5 is great for many different bushcraft and camping tasks. It will even come in handy while hunting.
The blade is made from 1095-carbon steel. As the name already suggests this type of steel has a relatively high carbon content. This means that the knife can be sharpened really sharp, but it also means that this type of steel is not stainless. After use you should therefore properly clean the blade and occasionally treat it to a couple drop of oil. The scandi edge can easily be sharpened and is slightly 'convex' towards the edge.
The micarta handle is enhanced with a cut-out on both sides The micarta offers you enough grip, even in wet circumstances. The ergonomics for this knife are great. You have enough grip for many different cutting techniques.
The knife comes with a solid kydex sheath. With the solid steel belt clip you can easily attach it to your belt.
