The TOPS Desert Nomad is a fixed knife. The design is inspired by hunting knives on the one hand and military knives on the other hand. The blade is made from stainless 440C steel, and has been finished with a cool acid stonewash. The tip of the blade has been pared thin, which is known as aswedge. This makes the tip even better at piercing materials.
The handle of the TOPS Desert Nomad is made of G10. Its texture provides plenty of grip. The full tang of the blade comes out at the end of the handle and is chamfered so you can use it for prying.
A robust baffle plate has been fitted where the handle and blade meet. This is made of aluminum and also has a stonewashed finish. Just in front of the baffle plate, a finger groove has been added which gives you more control during precise jobs.
A beautiful black belt sheath is included so you can carry the TOPS Knives Desert Nomad with you. The maximum belt width is 12 cm. A number of holes have been conveniently pre-drilled so that you can attach paracord or a Tek-Lok yourself.
