TOPS Scandi Woodsman Knife
It is no secret that we are massive fans of a "Scandi" grind and I am not sure why manufacturers don't use it more for utility type knives. I suppose it is because it is difficult to get right and they find it simpler to just put a secondary bevel on things. Having a Scandi grind you are alwyas using in the field is invaluable as it is so easy to maintain with little more than a simple sharpening stone.
The SCANDI WOODSMAN was first introduced at the 2014 Blade Show held in Atlanta. Many of the people that stopped by our booth were impressed by the elegant, yet functional design. The inspiration for this knife came from its sister, the LIONESS. We received a lot of comments letting us know that you wanted something similar to the Lioness that didn’t have the Tactical Pink coating, so here it is.
The handle was specifically designed so it would fit well in smaller hands, but we’ve seen that it fits perfectly in larger hands, too, so most people can pick it up and use it comfortably. The shape of the blade has a lot of belly, which makes it a very handy skinner. The SCANDI WOODSMAN will also prove to be extremely useful for a variety of bushcraft or camping tasks. The finger guard is very aggressive, decreasing the risk of losing the grip and accidentally cutting fingers, which makes it great for beginners. But knife veterans will also see the benefits you can get with this knife.
