TOPS Knives Bartender Defender XL BAR-XL


I just got these in. They come in Tops new packaging.


The Bartender Defender XL is a follow up to TOPS’ very popular Bartender Defender. This model was made thanks to specific customer feedback. Many liked that the original was extra small and lightweight, but wanted a slightly longer blade to work with. Don’t let the “XL” fool you. This new model is still less than 5.5” long when it’s sheathed, but has a blade over 2” long. Another update is that the bottle opener is accessible without having to remove the knife from the sheath. TOPS went with a smooth and attractive tumble finished 1095 blade with a clear Cerakote to protect from rust. The Bartender Defender XL is an excellent choice for those who are constantly opening boxes and/or brews.
