TOPS Knives is constantly looking to reinvent its products for operators in the field.

The company’s new Mil-SPIE Elite is the perfect 3.5 inch concealed carry knife. It was designed for a specific military unit to be easy to hide, which makes it a great self-defense/EDC knife for civilians too.

While the all black Mil-SPIE was designed for night ops, the new Elite version is geared for desert environments. This version has the same basic specs as our popular Mil-SPIE 3 model.

The Mil-SPIE Elite is made out of 1095 high carbon steel and is finished off with a coyote tan powder coat. Choose between Black Linen or Tan Canvas Micarta handle scales. It comes with a quality Kydex sheath that sits close to the body and includes a rotating belt clip.

The handles are very thin and textured with TOPS’ dot-dash-dot pattern giving a solid grip, but keeping a thin profile for concealment.

The full flat ground 3.5 inch blade is the right length for most tasks from tactical to the outdoors.
