Fiel – Spanish for “Faithful” or “Accurate”. This knife is aptly named. It’s a double-edged, hideaway fixed blade that makes a great last resort tool, tactical blade, and a serious EDC. Because of its small size and comfortable, contoured handle, it is easy to wield. That makes for precise slashing, slicing, and stabbing cuts. There are generous finger guards and jimping on the flat of each side of the blade to give a solid grip for safety.
The sheath was engineered to work well as a neck knife with a secure lock up on the blade, but is also compatible with Tek-Lok for those that would prefer to wear it on their belts. The Fiel is small enough and slim enough to make it an excellent concealed carry option. It’s perfect for military, Law enforcement, and guys who want a good urban defense option. It’s also attractive and useful enough to make a great EDC knife. The Fiel will not let you down.
DISCLAIMER: This knife is primarily for use by military, law enforcement, and executive protection specialists. It is incumbent upon the purchaser to be over 18 years of age and to check with local law enforcement personnel regarding legalities of double-edged weapons in his/her area. THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

Recieved this a few months back from an authorized Tops dealer. Wasn't real sure what to expect. Construction is typical Tops bomb proof. The package carries thin & comfortable!
I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough tip, or that the tip wasn't pointy enough. A day carrying it and I was worried for nothing. The tip is incredibly strong, with Tops' legendary 1095 and heat treat. The Fiel is both a stabber and a slasher. It's a weird little shape, but Leo hit this one out of the park! For those who voice concern about 1095 worn close to the body, don't fret! I treated mine with Sentry Tuff-Glide and I sweat buckets. I have yet to see any stains or 'pre-rust' on blade, nor handle.
Neck carry is surprisingly comfy. Fiel's shape has no hotspots or pokey edges. I believe this knife can fill many roles. I even used it to flip burgers on the camp grill, wiped it off and she's good as new. Don't let the odd shape put you off. Get one and see for yourself. I should note that I have large hands and this knife is comfortable and easy to control. Next project? Gonna try and add my own desert ironwood handle scales!! (Posted on 2/24/2017)
