Being double-edged makes it illegal to carry in a lot of places (like PA where the only other illegal thing are Automatics). Also the materials clearly don't warrant the absurd cost of this piece of mobile probable cause.

Sorry if too graphic! My point was...The Point! This double edged implement is way more useful as a club vs a dagger. I don’t think this tool was envisioned when double-edged knives were banned where you are. If so, all pro-grade spades would be banned under a similar argument. I think if you had this in that jurisdiction, you could successfully argue that this is a tool... I mean, would it ever leave your camping gear? If so, what are the odds that you would be EDCing this in the civilian world? (Not much better in the military world...)

There are separate statutes for tools as opposed to knives. One could argue that this is a mini-spade, but it's going to be a tough sell with the sheath. Otherwise it's definitely qualifies as a dagger in that it's a sharpened double edge blade that comes to a point.
It is unusual and really draws the eye. Like others have commented, though, it seems a costly and impractical gimmick. If you wanted a practical and cost-conscious do-it-all digger with proven ability, why not try Cold Steel’s Special Forces shovel? It has been dropped here before. With sheath and shipping, it comes in near thirty bucks. My sons and I have been digging, chopping, and throwing with these for years. Handle replacements (wood) are less than twenty bucks. The steel is decent. They are...kinda...Fun!
I think that the TOPS Tracker Digger might end up a fun thrower...but “Goodbye Warranty!” I think it’s a collector at this price point. I try to enjoy every knife I buy or trade for at ALL price points but—for me—I couldn’t see more joy in this tool than in its dirt-cheap Cold Steel competitor. Thanks for your time. Cheers!

I have a hard time seeing the value in most of the TOPS knives. 1095 steel and micarta scales does not make a $200 knife.
Then there's the design and marketing of the knife. If you're willing to spend this kind of money on a knife and then start digging with it, why not get something half the price (like a Kabar BK7) and then buy a small titanium trowel? You'd be carrying less weight, have a more versatile knife, and both would stay in better shape.
I feel like TOPS Knives markets to the undiscerning knife enthusiast. Interesting/cool looking designs, but over priced and not as functional as other options.

First thing came up in my mind was I would probably cut myself if my hand slip while using this knife for digging. I also find the practicality for chopping of this knife is very questionable due to shape, weight distribution and length. Plus re-sharpening of the neck would be somewhat cumbersome. Lastly, a real farmer or hunter is less likely to use an $200 super thick knife to skin an animal.
