SP36GPE: Military G-10

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 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 metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry.

Spyderco Military 4" S30V Satin Blade, black G-10
A favorite knife! Highly recommend! Super sharp! It’s too large for EDC in lighter summer clothing, not really a problem in heavier jeans, perfect size for a jacket pocket (that said, with the liner-lock there’s no back to the knife so expect lint and dirt to accumulate between the scales with loose-pocket carry). The pocket clip is nice and deep and the G-10 is nice and grippy! The Military is my second S30V blade and I love this steel; it takes an edge easily and holds it well through a lot of use. It also has some serious heft for a folding knife! I’ve taken it backpacking, shaved tinder and chopped through 1.5” branches for firewood with ease, lopped off some long green branches and whittled cooking skewers, cut some rope and then thin-sliced some fruit! The edge was still sharp enough to sink right into my skin with little pressure. This is a knife so sharp it can cut you deeply before you will feel it so even those experienced with knives should respect it and be careful handling. Most knives will never be used as a weapon but in extreme need for self-defense this is one that one I would feel extremely confident having in hand; it has a wicked point for stabbing cuts, will tear through just about anything and has enough mass to get right down to and through bone. A non-determined attacker will probably run just at the brandishing of this knife. The above qualities also make it a great hunting and field knife. I prefer it over some fixed blades, and it’s compact to carry. Having said all of this because it’s so nice I find myself taking it with me more for certain special or specific occasions rather than for EDC. I tend to reach for cheaper blades, especially if I know I’m going to work them, because I want to keep my Military looking nice. If you consider this to be an expensive knife you will probably feel this way too. It can do everything you want it to but you won’t want it to. If money is no object it’s a great daily working knife that will do all you ask of it while still looking badass!

Great knife!
I really like this knife, have previously had a paramilitary 2 and this is a bit larger, I like the blade lenght but the handle is more suited for wearing gloves. Knife arrived really sharp but I have not had time to properly evaluate edge retention. Not much to say about the lock, it is a great solution that is tried and tested. Will definately be one of my edc-knifes.On the negative side the pocket clip can't be moved like on other spyderco models, however for me it does not really matter as I am right handed and prefer a tip down carry.In all: Great quality and worksmanship, great design and a great knife if you are looking for something a bit larger than the para 2.

Great Knife from a legit source
Excellent USA made knife. Nice to find a seller that was legitimate. Saw several Amazon reviews saying they got ripped off with a fake.
