TOPS Knives: TOPS Tanimboca Puukko, Tumble Finish with Tan Micarta, TK-TPUK01


The TPUK-01 TOPS Tanimboca Puukko is a take on the classic Puukko utility knife, designed by Goran Mihajlovic, that features a 3.63 inch fixed blade made of 1095 steel, .130 inch thick, with a Rockwell hardness of 56-58, a 3.50 inch cutting edge, and tumble finished flats. The Tanimboca Puukko Knife has full tang construction for strength; tan canvas Micarta scales with chamfered contours for comfortable grip, contrasting red liners, lashing holes, and integral bow drill divot on each side. A genuine leather sheath is included. The TOPS Knives Tanimboca Puukko Knife has an overall length of 7.75 inches, and it weighs 5.1 ounces; 7.6 ounces with the sheath. Made in the USA.

From the TOPS website: Puukkos are a style of knife originally developed in Scandinavia. Through the years, they have remained largely unchanged. Characteristically, they are Scandi ground knives with thick, round wooden handles. Most do not have a finger guard, which allows the person using it to get their hand as close to the cutting edge as possible. This gives the user very precise and controlled cutting. Its simplistic design is both useful and intuitive and has definitely withstood the test of time.

To make the Tanimboca Puuko, TOPS has teamed up with Goran Mihajlovic. Goran is originally from Serbia but grew up in Germany. He has lived in Colombia now for the last 20 plus years. He owns a nature reserve called Tanimboca that houses hundreds if not thousands of species of plant, animal, and insect. Throughout his entire life, he has been a knife user and enthusiast. In recent years he has begun making knives at his forge in the Amazon jungle. He prefers Puukkos for their ability to perform well at large variety of cutting tasks.

The TOPS version of his design mixes traditional elements with TOPS' style. It has the classic Puukko blade with a very slight clip point. The spine is ground to 90 degrees for scraping tasks. Well-rounded Tan Canvas Micarta handles with red liners honor the traditional style. The knife sits deep in the leather sheath. Add a breakaway chain or paracord and it can easily be worn as a neck knife when needed. Once you get your hands on the Tanimboca Puukko, you won't want to put it down.
