We shared TOPS’ announcement when they released their new camp chopper – “El Chete“. I got to see this knife in production when I paid a visit to TOPS’ production facility this past June. It is a beast.
We’d love to test an El Chete ourselves, but at the moment we are slated to review a new Tanimboca Puuko, and it would probably be a bit much to ask for an El Chete as well.
In this video review, Tim does a bunch of chopping and wood-shaving out in the woods, then heads indoors for a benchtop review and commentary. I respect his detailed pros and cons review you see here.
