Spyderco Military Folder with Camo G-10 Handle
The Spyderco Military series is one of the most popular series of folders we offer. They are extremely well designed and engineered. Some of our customers collect every variety! This new one is a natural with a camo patterned handle.
Here is Spyderco’s information:
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.
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.
