The Fieldcraft Knife



The Fieldcraft Knife was designed by The Brothers of Bushcraft, a coalition of men across North America focusing on sharing wilderness living skills of all categories. From tracking, to building shelters, the Brothers of Bushcraft make it a point to show the skills to all people, of all ages, from all over.

If you wish to purchase the TOPS Knives/B.O.B Fieldcraft Knife, and live in the United States or any other country outside of Canada order here! Please allow 8 to 10 weeks for its delivery. Each knife must be made by order. Update: If you order this blade from outside the US we can not add delivery conformation and insurance to the package. We only charge so much for shipping and make so little on the blade as it is, when the cost exceeds this we end up eating the cost. We will send the postal receipt upon request but we are not responsible for packages that may be lost during transit from the post office, customs, and finally to your address. Thank you!

The Fieldcraft Knife is the culmination of their knowledge, combining experiences from; the broad and humid rain forests, the arid and scorpion-littered deserts, and the frigid northern lands that span the Americas.

The knife is ten inches long in total, with a blade length of four and a half inches. This makes a compact, but extremely serviceable knife. The Fieldcraft’s blade is 3/16″ thick, and made of 1095 High Carbon steel. The cutting edge is a Scandinavian Grind, which is very effective for carving, skinning and other general woods work. With a rockwell hardness of 56-58, the ease of sharpening is astounding. That is if you ever get to sharpen the blade. As the hardness and edge geometry work beautifully together to make a long lasting edge.

The handle is one of the most ergonomic ones on the market, sporting several useful additions. Although knives with a lot of frills often end up lacking, the additional items found on the Fieldcraft knife were selected from experience and critiqued in every step of design, development and production. Being made of canvas micarta, the handle will never let you down. The bow drill divot on the handle is frictionless and makes starting those primitive fires almost effortless. The “Thumb Scallops”, formed on the hilt of the handle offer more comfort and control when using specialized carving and skinning grips. The pommel of the blade is simply the tang of the knife exposed enough to allow impact from a baton to not effect the handle (though the micarta is definitely tough enough to take such abuse). On the exposed pommel, you will find a scraper specially designed by one of The Brothers of Bushcraft, for striking Ferro rods in a safe and efficient manner.

The sheath is a strong, durable Kydex, with a steel belt clip. This arrangement allows a safe, secure and comfortable carry on the belt, pack strap, or even around the neck. WIth a built in Ferro-rod attachment point, the sheath now doubles as a minimalist survival kit.

The Fieldcraft knife has had heavy duty abuse, and testing done in the wilderness of Canada, where local survival experts Mors Kochanski, Dr. Gino Ferri, and many others have deemed her a “Serviceable Field Knife”. These words are exactly what she is meant to be.

From carving netting needles and trap triggers, to splitting logs in two, the TOPS Knives/Brothers of Bushcraft Fieldcraft Knife will do just about any chore that you can throw at her in a wilderness survival scenario.

  3. Just got #64. Great knife. I would suggest a 1” 1/2″ belt loop as a issue item. I have mover the bottom bolt up one hole on the fire started holder, removed some of the Kydex so I can run a loop of 550 paracord with a holder to keep it secure and have a loop to keep it on my wrist.

      Very nice modifications. The standard sheath is sadly just that; Standard. It is however a good solid sheath that is free to be modified however you see fit. I personally like wearing it Crow Indian-style on the back of my belt on a 45-degree angle!

  4. yeah its fine. the law specifically bans calbealocne weapons, if you have a 6 fixed blade survival knife its legal as its not calbealocne (not really), and not a folding knife of any kind. for survival I have a Ontario Knife 12 saw back machete in my car (part of my car kit) at all times unless where prohibited (such as a school or on government property).and I got some cheap German-clone folding spade too (made in china). I actually did get stuck once and had to dig my car out, and all i could find was a cracked glass mug. nowadays I’m prepared, with a proper digging tool. these are legal in California, where i live. sometimes I have a S W M P folding knife too, and a Norinco AK-47 Bayonet ($12 at a gun show).
