Spyderco Knives

Spyderco describes this item as follows:

A cornerstone in Spyderco's Save and Serve line up, the Military Model came about after someone asked Spyderco's owner Sal Glesser, "If your son were going into the military what folding knife would you send him with?" For certain, it had to meet the requirements of a high-performance, light-weight folder designed for hard use.

Military Model with U.S. Army digital camo pattern G-10 handle.

Someone asked Spyderco's chief designer "if your son or daughter deployed, what knife would you send with them?" That question raised three powerful considerations: (1. The blade had to have relentless cutting performance and edge life. (2. It had to be lightweight, ergonomically practical. (3. For field-use it needed to be manufactured to be as indestructible and failsafe as humanly possible.

The resulting Military Model, or "Millie" meets these considerations by pairing a CMP-S30V stainless blade with a slim G-10 handle designed to feel like a natural extension of the hand. The open constructed handle makes cleaning/maintenance as simple as blowing or flushing out debris and dirt.

Since the steel is the spirit of the knife, CPM-S30V with almost 2% carbon seemed the logical choice for the blade given its reputation for long-term edge retention and rust resistance. The 'Millie' has a modified clip-point blade laser cut with a 14 mm Spyderco Round Hole for quick deployment and for use with gloves. Texturing above the hole hold the thumb in contact with the blade's spine during cutting for confident control over the sharpened edge. The handle scales are G-10 with the lock's liner nested (inlayed) directly into the scale, pumping up lock strength without the addition of bulky liners. Spacers between the scales create a gap running the handle's full length exposing the inside workings for inspection and cleaning. The handle flares slightly at the front end creating a finger choil and at the butt end, which keeps the knife from slipping forward or backward in the hand while sawing or making tough or aggressive cuts. A contoured black metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry.

Field-ready, uncomplicated, manufactured to exacting standards and Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A. Earth

Please note that the digital pattern will vary on each knife and that no two knives (or sides of each knife) will be the same.

Romantic gift
Got this as a gift for my boyfriend. This is the second spyderco knife I've gotten him, and this one is the best. He's in the navy, so I figured he should have a knife that his shipmates could be jealous of. Definitely a romantic gift for any ladies not sure what to get for Valentine's day.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Type, None
A basic design flaw, have no doubt
The tip down design with the big end up is a flawed design for tactial use. Most tac pants or shorts have a knife pouch or slip pocket inside the cargo pocket for a knife or spare pistol mag. With the big end up, the jimping hangs up when pulling the knife out. They have buffed this a bit, but the edges still snag and hang the knife up. Tip up would solve this problem. They only need a small gusset type plate or washer to screw the pocket clip to so it is supported. great knife other wise but this can easily be a deal breaker, not an smooth or reliable deployment from an inside pouch.
