Can anyone weigh in on the comparison with the Tops B.O.B. knife currently on offer on MD?
Both appear to be made in the USA from 1095 carbon steel and have very similar dimensions.
The Tops knife comes with a triple fire steel, integrated scraper and bow drill divot, but is also $24 more, so without those features they would seem to be of comparable value. Does anyone experienced with both of these or who is familiar with the differences have an opinion?
I'm leaning toward the Tops, given the extra features and prefer the styling and color options, but wonder if there are other intangible differences I'm not aware of, or if they are known for differences in quality/durability.
Also, would the stainless steel upgrade on the Tops be worth it for the rust resistance, or is it a non issue?
