This BladeOps Exclusive TOPS CUMA KAGE is a BlackOut version featuring black canvas micarta handle scales, all black hardware, black finished 1095 blade, and red liners on the handle scales.

In Japanese, CUMA KAGE (pronounced KU-MA KA-GAY) means "shadow". SIJO Waysun Johnny Tsai is a lifelong martial artist and world-renowned self-defense instructor. The C.U.M.A. Kage design shows evidence of his experience along with highlights pulled from his passion for GI JOE. The handle has a striking Punyo tip and the blade is big enough to replace an axe.

During his prototype work on this knife,  IDW comic book / GI Joe artist Robert Atkins agreed to upgrade the official Snake Eye's sword in the comic book with The C.U.M.A. KAGE. That story arc written by GI JOE legend Larry Hama, is GI JOE: SNAKE HUNT and runs in GI JOE: A Real American Hero issues numbered 266-276.

The C.U.M.A. KAGE is finally here and Sijo could not be prouder of the final product that TOPS KNIVES has delivered.

Made in the USA.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased this knife, but man was I impressed with this blade I mean you get what you pay for. It is an awesome well made blade. I ordered a second one that's how much I liked it. This is not that cheap made in China c***. This is worth every penny and then some. If you're on the fence don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed at all. Fast and free delivery on top of everything else.

    Look to buy this knife for months all across the internet could not find it. Was worried when I found bladeops if it was legit. This is the only place to find black handles love the blade. Showed it to a friend he immediately bought one. Only concern was packaging did come in been up like other reviews but knife was perfect.
