The purpose of the TOPS Brakimo (pronounced BRAH-key-moe), designed by Joe Flowers, was to be a backup to a machete or to serve as a main camp knife. He runs a survival school called Bushcraft Global, which takes people of all skill levels into the Amazonian jungle to teach them survival skills. Not just skills specific to the jungle, but a mindset that will serve people regardless of location. He needed a knife that could be the flagship knife of the company and has designed the Brakimo to fit that need.
It has a fairly wide blade profile combined with TOPS’ modified Scandi grind that gives it great cutting and splitting power. The tip narrows dramatically to make it useful for drilling holes for bow-drill fires, blow gun mouth pieces, traps, etc. The simple design is perfect for many different uses. Made of 1095 high carbon steel with a Tumble finish, it’s easy to maintain the edge while out in the field.- The handle scales are made of green Cnvas Micarta, they feature bow drill pivots on both sides.-
The TOPS Brakimo comes with a black Kydex sheath with a rotating metal belt clip ( the plastic clip shown in the video below is not used anymore).-
