A tribute to the men and women who hunt and fish in the Tex creek area in Southeast, Idaho. The Tex Creek wildlife management area includes 2 national forests and is home to an abundance of diverse wildlife and is accessible starting about 10 miles from the TOPS facility. Open range, high rugged mountains, waterways and large forests provide the hunters and fisherman a variety of diverse terrain to acquire elk, bear, mountain lion, wolf, moose, pheasant, turkey, quail, rabbit, duck, goose, steelhead and salmon.

The fact that this Tex Creek area is so close to us enables our designers and makers the ability to field test in their own backyard. Since many of our staff grew up in this setting, they have ample opportunity to evaluate the use of our knives/tools under the most adverse conditions. The "Tex Creek Hunter" is a fine example of a high-quality, good-looking work knife.

The designer Leo Espinoza, created a new look for this specific blade. At TOPS, we call it "Black River Wash" The uncoated finish clearly shows the heat treat line along the blade edge. The darkened-steel pattern is unique on every blade. This creates that broken in, rustic look and feels just like an old pair of comfortable boots. The darkened Micarta scales are screwed onto the handle and a large cord holder is accentuated at the back of the handle. The handles are designed and built for a positive grip and for extended periods of use. A simple and usable design is reinforced by a sturdy 3/16" thick blade and full tang handle. This is a knife that performs with excellence in the field and looks and feels like an old trusted friend, anywhere that you go

Where does the name black river wash come from? The Black River is a 125 mile long (201 km) "Black-water River" that empties into the Eastern end of Lake Ontario. The river's source is various locations in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The origin of the name is not clear, but it may stem from the natural Tannic Acid that darkens the water in various places.

* Please Note That The "Black River Wash" Process Will Create A Unique Look To Each Knife. Your Knife's Pattern May Vary From The Product Image. The Carbon Content Of The Steel Can Also Cause Variations In The Engraving.

The Tops Knives Tex Creek is the perfect size knife to take to the woods or camping. Love mine. Very multi-use knife, not a one-function tool. Ive feather-sticked, notched, sliced, carved, done food prep and even battened wood. Its a must at our campsite. The handle fits my hand perfectly, and the blade almost becomes an extension of you. The jimping on top is perfect for your thumb during detailed work. Very handy knife. Well made by Tops, as are all of their products Ive seen and used. I will say its a bit tough to strike a ferro rod on the spine with the smoothness and the swedge toward the tip and the jumping taking up a lot of space, thats no problem since I usually have a lot of fire-starting sources besides my blade. Even so, the knife feels amazingly good in your hand during long periods of use. All around great size and feel with high quality build.

The Tex Creek is my daily carry knife. It has the perfect length and balance for an EDC fixed blade.
