SP36GPOR: Military - Orange G-10
Spyderco

This is a sprint run of the best selling Military and features an orange G10 handle.

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.

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.
