Have you seen the TOPS Poker? It’s on our Top Ten Most Interesting Knives list of 2020. TOPS tells us, “One weekend, while [TOPS’ General Manager, Craig Powell] was working on a leather sheath project that he wanted to do, he came up with the idea to make a kiridashi style knife close to the traditional Japanese style (with a sort of chisel ground blade) that he could use specifically for cutting leather for projects and other things around the house.” He later tweaked the design to include a karambit-style finger ring. As we can clearly see, the result is something of a Wharncliffe mixed with something of a Sheepsfoot that looks like no other blade we’ve ever seen. This small fixed blade is a kiridashi-karambit with just a ton of utility.
