The name Mil-SPIE is an acronym that the DOD came up with several years ago. It stands for (Military-Special Projects Individual Equipment) Pronounced ‘MIL SPY’ This was to enable Special Operation Forces within the Military to help develop, test, evaluate and acquire 'out of the ordinary' and' outside of normal channels' items that they require.

TOPS KNIVES is often approached by individual OPERATORS who advise us of their ideas and the criteria that needed to be met for their Unit or Team. The challenge was to develop a small knife with a fairly narrow carrying profile, it had to be strong and light in weight. With this criteria in mind we created and named the Mil-SPIE Knives. The success of both of our fixed blades, the MIL SPIE 3 AND THE MIL SPIE 5, were the basis of our latest folder.

This folder is a combination of rugged good looks, lightweight, with a secure grip, great working blade, and sturdy clip attachment.
