The CUT 4.0, by TOPS Knives, looks like a handy defensive-carry knife.

Short for Combat Utility Tool, the CUT 4.0 was designed by martial artist Joshua Swanagon.

The idea behind the CUT 4.0 was to combine the offensive-defensive capabilities of a karambit with the usefulness and practical application of a utility knife, according to TOPS Knives officials.

It features a 4.24 inch 1095 high-carbon steel blade and a tan canvas Micarta handle with a finger hole at the end for improved grip.
