Detailed Description

Spyderco Military Model


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 would have 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 Military Model, or 'Millie' as it's affectionately known 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 making tough or aggressive cuts. A contoured black metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry.

Spyderco Military

I have amassed a fairly decent collection of knives over the last 20 years. Anything from custom handmade knives to mass produced knives costing less then $50.00. The Military, more often than not, is the knife that I'll carry. It's the perfect blend of size, weight, strength and functionality. The flat ground blade is a great design for many tasks and large Spyder hole make the knife very easy to open even while wearing light gloves.

The Military is one of the most useful folders a person can get. The handle shape is very comfortable. It works well for a person with small hands as well as for one with large hands. The blade shape is very utilitarian. Can be used for a variety of chores. It is very useful and comfortable in the kitchen. The Military knives that I have had, all came with a very sharp edge. The point is very sharp and piercing. The liner locks all lock up very well (in the 7-8 samples I have tried). One of the best liner locks out there. The G-10 handles are grippy and well shaped. One of the best features of the Military is the "blade detent". In the closed position it tends to stay closed till some force is applied to get it open. Very secure in the closed position and the blade does not tend to open up as easily in the pocket, as many other pocket knives may do. This is a factory knife and there may be variations and problems with some knives. So nothing better than common sense in the handling and usage of knives. I have heard that Spyderco has excellent customer service. The blade and handle are on the larger size. This may be a deterrent to some. But it is very light for such a large knife. The newer Militaries' have dual nested liners. The orange G-10 handle should be very useful in hiking/hunting/camping situations, where a misplaced knife could be more easily found. All in all one of the better folders you can buy.
