Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I know I’m in the minority on this one but I’m not a big fan of the stop lock. Isn’t it just a variation on the backlock?
It ruins the lines on the handle.

I’ve had Militarys for nearly 25 years and never had any issues with the liner lock.

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

It has gradually been improved over the past 23 years. I can think of at least four main generations with some smaller tweaks added in between.

Re: Zoomer

I like it even more now.
The quality is superb.
Any idea on how the G10 slabs are attached?

Re: Zoomer

Just put my reading glasses on and see that it’s made in Taiwan.
They are making amazingly high quality knives there.

Re: Zoomer

That’s a helluva deal.
I read on the specs that it has two pieces of g10 for the handle but I can’t see how it’s held together? How’s the g10 fitted to the blade?
In the pics above it looks like one solid piece of g10 that’s been milled out.
Where’s it made?

Re: Zoomer

Congrats on the score mate, looking forward to your thoughts on it.
I haven’t held one yet but the handle looks like it should be a beauty.
Love the blade design too.

Re: Military ATS-34 - factory outlet visit

Sure did. They both have a liner lock. Both have G10 grips. Both have ATS-34 steel. They are very similar and very rare. I remember when these were in all the stores. I must have bought at least five of each back in the 90s. A great era for tactical knives. The amount of innovation and constant evo...

I think I read somewhere the old Kapton washers are .0035.
There’s two per side in this one.

Kapton washers

Mods, please delete this post if it’s deemed not appropriate to the forum. Hi guys, does anyone have some old Kapton washers laying around that they’re willing to part with? My old black Military from ‘96 needs some new washers as the old ones are a bit chewed up. I believe Spyderco stopped using th...

Re: Vintage Military

The beauty finally arrived today. I love it. A Military from the first batch back in late 96.
Still has the black finish on the edge. It’s been opened and closed a few times but that’s about it.

Re: Detent ball size

Spring tension is the main factor I think in keeping the ball in the hole, not the size of the ball. I’ve seen several Strider folders which use a large diameter ball and hole which are easily overcome because the tension on the integral lock was a bit weak. Easily fixed though. A very large ball wi...

Re: A plea to Spyderco:

I’ve always thought that Spyderco Knives have excellent edge geometry.
Most of the other big brands do have thick edges and serrations that don’t align properly with the straight edge.
Don’t change a thing Sal👍
