The TOPS Knives Rapid Strike RDSK-01 is an incredibly cool fixed knife, perfect for many different purposes. Keeping the background of TOPS Knives in mind it isn't that surprising that this knife was designed for law enforcement and soldiers. And yet we feel that the Rapid Strike is more versatile than that.
Its long and slim profile ensures that you can easily carry the TOPS Knives Rapid Strike with you. It barely stands out on your belt and won't get in your way. As such you could even carry the Rapid Strike as an EDC knife. To make the sheath even more compact a small screw was added to the blade. This screw ensures that the kydex sheath can become even smaller without compromising on retention.
In between the G10 you find royal jimping which ensures that you will always have enough grip over the handle. At the end of the handle a small piece of the tang protrudes to makes sure you can also use it to break something.
In terms of steel TOPS Knives selected 154 CM. A stainless type of steel that retains its sharpness for a really long time and is relatively easy to sharpen. The blade has a one-sided grind. If you want you could even sharpen the spine.
The TOPS Knives Rapid Strike is also a great steak knife.
