    I got a Tops Ferret and the kydex sheath is seriously ill fitted.....Is this a Tops thing thats normal or do I need to send it back? I can make a new one but I just got the knife and it kind of tics me off that the sheath is so bad.

    I love their designs, I just can't afford the ones I really want.

    Contact them. They seemed really concerned with customer service when I bought from them a couple years ago.

    If you ever wanted a Badger Pup I got one for sale or trade in the market...I like some of their designs..then I buy them and don't. I did buy the Ferret and it is nice.

    Yes, I have a TOPS Ferret that I really like. Small and solid. The Kydex sheath is functional but not exactly symmetrical or close fitting to all surfaces of the knife handle.

    I think their stuff is a bit overpriced for 1095 carbon steel but I really like my Ferret and I know they have lots of fans. For a long time I lusted after a Baghdad Boxcutter, but settled for a small Boker CLB fixed blade. seems just as sturdy and a lot less expensive. I think the Boker is 440 or AUS 6 or 8 also, not 1095. A bit more rust resistant, although most of the Ferret blade is coated.

    I have the California cobra. It's a pretty good knife and the sheath fits nicely. I have to say that it came so dull I couldn't cut paper... Literally... It took hours of work with a diamond sharpener to fix the problem. I wish my state allowed carry of double edged knives.

    I almost bought some of their knives, but hesitated because of the prices for the materials used. I really like some of their designs though.
