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