The HOG-45 TOPS Hunters of Gunmen is an outstanding field knife, designed by David Norseman Williams USMA (Ret), that features a 4.38 inch drop point fixed blade made of 1095 steel, .190 inch thick, with a Rockwell hardness of 56-58, and a non reflective Black Traction Coat. The Hunters of Gunmen has full tang construction for strength; ergonomic black linen micarta scales for comfort, and a large multi-use carabiner hole. A genuine leather dangler sheath is included. The TOPS Knives Hunters of Gunmen Knife has an overall length of 9.75 inches, and it weighs 8.3 ounces; 12.5 ounces with the sheath. Made in the USA.

From TOPS - David Norseman Williams comments: HOG is a name earned by a certified US Marine Scout Sniper. HOG means Hunter Of Gunmen, because we hunt men with guns. We HOGs are a force multiplier for any commander that chooses to employ us. The design for this blade started somewhere in my history that I cannot fully trace. It began in the early years of my career as a young Marine Infantryman. After spending days or weeks at a time in a field environment it seemed that my hands would always ache. I eventually traced this pain back to the blades that I was carrying and using. The Tacti-cool handles on those blades all had rough edges and sharp corners. Sure they were mean to look at and gripped like a gator but they didn't have the comfort that I needed for sustained field use. After this realization I set out to design the best knife handle that I could in my limited experience. Little did I know at the time, this would take the better part of my career to complete. ...

And regarding possible uses of the carabineer hole: It makes a great lever for almost any task requiring a little more leverage, like breaking up kindling and fire straightening expedient arrow shafts when they are hot. I have broken the bones of small game to expose the marrow for soups. I have used it to strip small branches clear of twigs and even as a gauge to make a split piece of wood round enough to use for a bow drill. A carabineer clipped in the hole makes a stout handle extension to aid in the blades chopping power when used in conjunction with a rear pinch grip. I have used it as a pot lifter and even to pull stuck tent stakes from the frozen ground. The truth is that the hole is limitless in its possibilities and the more you carry and use this blade the more uses that you will find for it. It is, much like the Marine Scout Sniper, a force multiplier and you will be glad to have it by your side when it matters.
