DTL Tactical was created to combine the 20 plus years of engineering and manufacturing experience of Founder & CEO, Robert, with his passion for adventuring outdoors. DTL’s products come about as a practical response to real life situations. Our most recent product is the FIDUS, an heirloom quality everyday carry escape tool. That was designed in collaboration with rootlab in Houston Texas.

FIDUS combines elegant design, practical functionality, and emergency preparedness. Designed with safety as the driving factor, the FIDUS features a carbide window breaker and seatbelt cutter in addition to a bottle opener and key ring loop. It is machined out of solid heat-treated brass with stainless steel hardware, replaceable ss razor blade, and a solid carbide tip.

 Development and manufacturing

 The prototyping process included several early designs with multiple materials; the belt cutter and window breaker being the greatest challenges. Ultimately, the belt cutter blade and fastener required specialized tooling and thread forming and an internal loop was added to the design for a more ergonomic cutting function. The carbide window breaker also went through several evolutions to ensure the sharp tip is both safe and effective. Finally, the rustic surface finish is achieved with multiple ceramic deburring processes.
