This looks way better than the Niolox neck knife/bottle opener that just showed up.

Great knife I got one last drop. I edc it with a Kershaw launch 4 for smaller tasks. I cut a lot of cardboard at work and this thing will do three layers like it ain’t there. The heat treat on this 1095 is awesome. For those griping about no blackout edition, micarta dyes very easily. Go to the store and get some RIT. Be done in 10 min. I’m not in love with the sheath. I like the idea but in scout carry it’s too bulgy and flops a bit. Planning on making a leather sheath for it someday. For now I front pocket carry. Since I stand all day it doesn’t bother me. If you’re on the fence go for it, you won’t be bummed.

I have the Blackout edition, great knife. That said, I really don’t like snap straps and this is a poor implementation of them (too loose). Yellow Hawk Custom Kydex has a vid on his FB page where Mr Wilson talks about straps, the risks of using and how to properly fit them. Depending on the day you may catch me with this or my JX4 Bush Bat in YHC kydex sheath, just depends on what is going on and what I am wearing. The CUT for me with large slender hands is perfectly comfortable in any grip and slices really well. I do think the tip looks a bit delicate so I wouldn’t do any prying and would avoid extreme puncturing duty if possible. It holds an edge well and comes back to sharp with a good stroping provided it isn’t completely dull. Really love this knife.

This version (brown micarta) is currently offered at SMKW for $99.99 (https://www.smkw.com/tops-cut40-combat-utility-tool-cut40). The blackout version is also offered at the same price on SMKW (https://www.smkw.com/tops-utility-tool-blackout). BladeHQ offers the knives at a slight markup ($109). I want to support massdrop, but I don't understand why this listing is just as expensive as buying it myself from another vendor. Will a discount appear after enough people join the drop?

Nope. Been a LONG time since they gave of up on the tiered sale system And more recently, seems like they've given up on the discounted sales most days too 🙄 Gotta wade through the standard average retail prices (but, still, long wait times) to find the one decent discount here and there nowadays

Well I kept coming back to look at this design and ended up ordering one. From the reviews, I don't think I will be disappointed.

'Plus one', what he said. Brown scales, don't necessarily suit this model.
(As shown beneath), we'd be all over black-out if offered.

I guess they don't listen to potential customers... This is the THIRD or FOURTH drop since I asked them directly to get TOPS to sell them the blackout edition. They would sell a lot more... I guess they don't want to make money :)

Tops knives are great working knives! I’ve heard a lot people say that they don’t like Tops due to the steel type “1095” but tops has in my opinion the best 1095 on the market. Their differential heat treat they do is excellent, having owned several tops knives myself I highly recommend the company. My Tops “Prather War Bowie is a beast” One of my favorite outdoor blades.

Agree with you on Tops 1095, but do have to say the ESEE are right there too, hard to decide, they are a toss up between 1A and 1B.

I came across the C.U.T. 4.0 offered here on MD I was very intrigued. I checked out some reviews online and found out about the Blackout version which isn't offered here (the brown micarta is nice, but for this type I prefer concealment). Then after weighing the shipping time/costs on MD I found a 10% discount code for SMKW and it arrived at my door in 2 days. I highly recommend it.
The weight is perfect, the blade is razor sharp, the ring is a good size even for gloved hands, and the red liners are a really cool touch. The handle scales are comfortable in forward & reverse grip and its very easy to access the knife from any position in the outstanding multi-configurable kydex sheath. You can't really go wrong with either version though. This knife can serve dual roles as an on-duty backup or a backup to your primary bushcraft knife.

Another drop that when you add shipping is only a couple bucks cheaper than ebay and Amazon retailers, with a month to a month and a half wait for delivery! I just don't get it! Now the Tops Wind Runner blackwash combo was a great deal! I got the small version for somewhere around $89 and the large version for only $80 more, so the combo was running $25-30 off cheaper than competitors price. Now there's a drop that got me running for my credit card, and worth the month and a half wait for delivery!
