This is the TOPS Knives MIL SPIE 3, it is the smaller of the TOPS Knives MIL SPIE line (Military-Special Projects Individual Equipment). Designed for Combat. Proven in Battle. Built for Special Operation Forces.
The MIL-SPIE 3 is more adept at belt or vest carry, while still maintaining a low profile. The scales are black linen Micarta with a dot dash dot pattern embedded in the handle. The handle scales are removable and the skeletonized knife seems to be as popular as the one with handles. The blade has a black traction coating.
The sheath system is heavy duty Kydex, which locks the knife in place in the closed position and has a steel spring clip for attachment in a variety of positions.
