TOPS Operator 7 BlackoutThe wildly popular TOPS Operator 7 Blackout version is now available. It’s everything you loved about the original Operator. It’s just been blacked-out and has a Kydex sheath with rotating spring steel clip instead of a dangler sheath.

Featuring a beastly 5/16” thick 1075, the 7.25” drop point is black traction coated. It has a slight recurve and a flat grind. TOPS Knives tells us, the Operator 7 has a “differentially heat-treated blade will be impact resistant on the edge with a very strong spine.” There’s also a significant finger choil that allows for finer detail work.

The rounded black micarta and G-10 layered handles are over an inch thick and designed to fill your hand much like an axe handle. The textured top G-10 layer provides a secure grip. For additional security, it also has a dual hand guard.
