I found both the TOPS Turley Model 23 and the TOPS Mini Alert to be great back up survival blades as well as EDC (Everyday Carry) blades. The kit that comes with the Turley Model 23 is well thought out and can be used alone or can augment the gear you are already carrying. When I took the kit out to test it I had no difficulties with any of the items. They were all pretty straight forward and to the point. The Model 23 knife is pretty small and can be attached to a stick by either lashing it in place with paracord or cinching it in place with hose clamps. I like the idea of being able to do this with this tool. This will allow you to save space in the kit yet give the ability to make a larger handle for the knife. Watch the video below to get a good idea as to the blades and kit contents.
