The TOPS Tac-Raze 3 TRAZ-03 is a friction folder pocket knife. As the name might already suggest this knife looks like a classic straight razor. But more solidly constructed: it is namely a TOPS knife. With the Tac-Raze director of TOPS Leo Espinoza wanted to introduce a knife for real gentlemen. Stylish, but still very TOPS. You open the TOPS Tac-Raze with the front flipper. It doesn’t contain a lock, so you push the flipper-tab around the handle with your hand to make sure you can keep the knife open.The blade is made from 1095-carbon steel. Like almost all TOPS knives the Tac-Raze is also enhanced with a differential hardened blade. This means that the edge is hard, and the rest of the blade softer. Hard where need be, soft wherever possible. To finish the blade TOPS enhanced it with its appreciated Black River Wash finish. The handle of this model is made from black G10. A pattern was milled into it, making it look even cooler. The pattern also provides you with more grip. You can carry the TOPS Tac-Raze in the included leather sheath. Only half of the knife will fit in the sheath to make sure it stays closed, but is also easy to reach. You can carry the sheath both horizontally and vertically on your belt.
