Introduction -TOPS Knives “Zero Dark 30” part 1

Ambrose-6351Do you need a knife that can do it all?  Well then TOPS Knives has the one for you!  It is called: Zero Dark Thirty!  Check out the review

As a professional Martial Artist as well as a Special Operations Tactical Knife Fighter Instructor their are certain things you need to look for in a knife.  The reach, weight and the most important is the feel of the knife while it is in your hand.  I was introduced to TOPS Knives just this year and I really must say I am very impressed.


The total length of the knife is 30.5cm (that’s a little over 12 inches) which makes it great for knife fighting!  Again, what do we call a weapon in the hand?  That’s right an extension of the arm when fighting with it.  Never just rely on the weapon alone.  The blade alone measures about 6 inches of awesomeness. and the total weight of the knife is just under a pound!!!

$T2eC16d,!yME9s5qIFu5BRR4N3)z-w--60_1Did you know that it is made of 1095 carbon steel, black traction coating and red fiber layers complete the package. Plus the Chisel-shaped handle and the Sheath made of ballistic nylon?  I know right!  What more can you ask for?

Well, here is what TOPS knives has to say about it:



For rugged performance and specialized use.

Final equipment check, The ramp opens and the light turns to jaa_7884-edit_medium_green, Several men leap into the cold night wind.

The time…“Zero Dark 30”

This is a special operator’s choice tool, designed for rugged performance and specialized use. The hours of darkness. Many military guys know this as slang for very early in the morning. The original meaning was the last bottom of the hour before dawn. Also, 00:30 – Thirty minutes after midnight–used to refer to a very early starting time.

* Sharp Top Edge is Optional. Please check with your local and State laws.
