From the TOPS website: Wild pig hunting has become a very popular sport as well as a necessity in many areas due to their overwhelming numbers and the damage they do. Feral hogs may appear basically the same as domestic hogs in a wide variety of colors and coat patterns. A mature feral hog may reach a weight of 100 to over 400 pounds. They have 4 continuous tusks, 2 top and 2 bottom, and their contact causes a continuous sharpening of the lower tusks. The tusks combined with their lightning speed can cause serious damage to a hunter or their dogs.
The TOPS Wild Pig Hunter knife is a seriously hardcore design. The 7 1/2" blade is made for deep positive piercing penetration and is combined with a strong puncture point. Each blade is ground from 1/4 inch thick 1095 high carbon steel. ... The handle is green canvas Micarta and our well known Rocky Mountain Tread which ensures a positive grip even when in wet, muddy, or bloody conditions. The sheath is made in the USA of vegetable tanned, tough steer hide.
