The Bravo Tope-Recon is a co-branded knife. Mike Stewart designed the handle and Dan Tope designed the Blade. We gave Dan total free license on his blade design and his thoughts were to have a large but very quick harpoon style blade for both general field and camping chores and still have enough blade for para-military applications. This knife does all of that. It is amazingly fast in the hand and will really open your eyes on what a large knife can do. The balance point of the knife is directly in front of the first finger and the handle is very secure in the hand. The 3V steel will give you maximum toughness and great edge holding. The versatile sheath is a Jenna Martin design that can be worn right or left vertical carry or horizontal scout style carry.
