Bill Joe says:

it’s sooo… cute, the Bk2, I feel, is the best all around work, survival knife

BrassyTack says:

Would like to have a fixed blade that size.

It’s $80 on Amazon. Pricey for a 1095 blade.

Edged Knife says:

Nice review!!! I will need to check out this knife for sure.

The Silent Patriot says:

Good stuff bro

Paul'ie 4X The Consiglior says:

Say Heah, Yeah, I have the Top’s Mini Scandi Knife, and I do wear mine as a neck knife, It’s a very small knife but if I don’t have a pocket knife on me, I really like to carry mine, Is yours tge MSK 2.5 ? Because that’s what mineis

Juan Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez says:

wich knife should i get.
the esee izula or the tops msk?

FuwaForestFilms Denis Hauser says:

Nice knife! :)

kevin auman says:

I suppose before I write tops knives off entirely I should try one their Scandi blades but the one tops knife I own has too thick of blade stock with such a shallow grind that you just cannot put an edge on it sharp enough to even cut yourself with very easily! Yes you could reprofile the edge but when I spend that much money I expect to have a knife that works and keeps on working and in my opinion tops are just kabar wannabes seeing how kabar made their reputation on 1095 steel on most of their lineup and its proven great over the years so a newer company tried to capitalize on that same design or idea and when push comes to shove I grab my kabar over the tops every single time!

TheTacticalDefender says:

Another great knife from TOPS! Thank you for taking the time to share.

Sawyer Smith says:

Cr0cket20 says:

Mrgunsngear Channel says:

Great review

kyle lockton says:

Great now i have to buy it! hahaha

Colson Customs says:

Good review. I have a few little neck knives I am working on that are about this size. Smaller knives are more likely to actually be there when you need them.

Kaiden Wyatt says:


Paul'ie 4X The Consiglior says:

Oh Ok, Yeah mine is the Mini Scandi Knife, Yeah, it’s a little smaller but I love wearing it as a neck knife especially as a E D C, , ,

Scott F. says:

Good review…

gideonstactical says:

It sure is a fun little blade!

Bill Joe says:

Cold Steel SRK with San Mai blade or the Becker Bk2 are the best all around so called survival knives,

also Patriot Leather makes the best sheaths for both, they come made with survival tin attached if wanted

Gun Sense (drmaudio) says:

I am so use to small knifes being folders, that I am always surprised how much utility you can get out of a good small fixed blade.

NathanKay says:

can you take the micarta handles off? i want one but that could be a deal breaker

NotHis RealName says:

I’m not a fan of the coating on the blade. I’d have preferred a full satin finish, myself.

asleepyinsomnia says:

they made the hump now, to take the knife out. its pretty great!!

HeyimAngel - says:

you know it’s funny. (the channels name)
I just got my Eagle rank not to long ago. but I turned 18 in March and technically got Eagle long before that. but I have just now gotten my Eagle rank. Hence why I am also a “late Eagle Scout” haha!

Dogman J says:

own one, good review.

Max Benzian says:

can you do a review of the benchmade nakamura 484

s. Conragutltaion for radenig tih says:

5 out of 5 ☆’s. I’ve had one for over a year now. It’s one of my favorite neck knife that I enjoy to EDC.

Just as with any other knives, strop the edge before use and make sure to apply rust prevention on the blade (especially for knives with 1095 steel).

My other two knives that I enjoy a lot from TOPS: B.O.B and 4.0 CUT.

Nolan Carpenter says:

Is this an upgrade or different version to the MSK 2.5?

Ben Romney says:

Thanks for the review Scout.

Sean B says:

*ESEE Izula vs Tops MSK 2.5…..*
*What would YOU choose???*

냄새꾸리꾸리한 발까락 says:

I love mine.

Here is a bit of tip if you end up getting this knife: start applying rust prevention solution early on and keep on maintaining it. I say this because the sheath has a small opening on the area where the tip of the knife becomes situated once sheathed. This opening allows moisture and heat to enter, making the the tip of the knife vulnerable to rust issues (especially if you wear this knife under your shirt during hot/humid weather).
