The TOPS Silent Hero is a large survival knife, designed by Anton Du Plessis. He works for the Specialized Interdiction Unit of the Silent Heroes Foundation in South-East Africa. This foundation is committed to the preservation of wild animals. A good knife is indispensable in the field. The Silent Hero has a large 16.5 cm blade. You can immediately see the traces of the heat treatment on the blade. TOPS calls this the Black River Wash. As such you can clearly see the differential hardening of the blade. The edge is hard, the rest of the knife is relatively soft. As such the Silent Hero can handle quite a lot before it breaks. There is a finger choil up into the blade to give you the ability to choke up and execute precise, fine cuts. The drop point design makes this knife great for slicing and gives the tip extra strength. So this knife will be a great knife for bushcraft, survival, and tactical purposes. The Silent Hero is a great design and a very versatile blade. It is large enough that it can be used to chop but is also still small enough to complete most of the tasks you can do or want to do with a smaller knife. The handle is made from micarta. A strong composite material made from canvas and synthetic resin. This specific version has a smooth handle. The TOPS Silent Hero comes with a solid leather sheath with belt loop.
- The black leather sheath is durable and looks great paired with this knife. The Silent Hero is held in place with a single snap loop that curls around the finger guard.
