Tops' Waysun Johnny Tsai designed CUMA Tak-Ri 2.0, It Ain't Hard To Handle.

There is nothing wrong with the "original" Tops CUMA Tak-Ri, but some had requested a more hand-filling micarta slab on each side of the handle.  I'm fortunate to get to take a look at this beast with its modest, yet important upgrade.  I CAN tell you...when you pick this thing up, you want to start swinging it around & doing FMA style "stick" twirls...then you want to find a tree to chop down.  I resisted the urge, but a full run-down is gonna be up after I have had some proper outside-time with this beastly piece of steel.

O/A Length: 13 1/2"
Top Edge: 4"
Bottom Edge: 7"
Thickness: 3/16"
Steel: 1095 High Carbon Steel RC 56-58
Handle: Micarta
Blade Color: Black Traction Coating
Sheath: Ballistic Nylon
Desiged by: Waysun Johnny Tsai 

If you don't want to read my review & the urge grabs you, buy it HERE @ Tops Knives USA.

See what WJT is up to as of late at the dojo, with links to his other enterprises & designs.
