Description

Jungle experiences have proven to be very inspirational with TOPS designs. The Brakimo and Tanimboca Puukko are two examples of knives born through jungle experience. The Yacare is the next one in the series.

It was designed by TOPS’ GM Craig Powell. He first saw machetes of a similar style in Costa Rica on the hips of local folks and in decorative pieces. They were similar to barong-styled machetes, but with their own flair. What he liked about the style is that they weren't quite like the typically Central American machete that comes to mind. Then, after he attended the Bushcraft Global trip of 2015, it solidified that he wanted to design a machete. “I’m definitely not a knife designer. So getting help from Leo to make this a reality and a design that would fit with the TOPS line was imperative,” – Craig Powell.
