The California Cobra is the innovation of one of the TOPS Knife makers / Designer Leo Espinoza and American Kempo / Police Instructor Jed Lewis. Six months of design and testing produced a Tool with both back and front cuts, plus an integrated Pressure Point Release. Presently, set for testing with two major Police Departments with incredible market acceptance already.

The California Cobra, a radically new design with recognizably, (less than lethal) utilization for self defense; for civilians, male, or female, as well as Law Enforcement. It offers more options than a standard utility tool, with only cutting capabilities. It has the capacity to be utilized with minimal training, to exert concentrated, powerful point pressure on the aggressor’s hands or forearms to cause a faster release of the opponent’s grip, without having to cut or slash the aggressor. The Cal Cobra may be worn around the neck, and under a shirt or on a belt. It has a very low profile and sits fairly flat against the body, it has a hard Kydex formed sheath with an adjustable steel spring clip on. Measuring only 6" long and 3/16" thick, it is strong, compact and facilitates fast defensive moves. TOPS has had numerous request by various Law Enforcement units to start making aluminum trainers as well. This Tool is made in the USA with pride and great craftsmanship.
