Re: Has the size of serrations changed over the years?

Great topic.
Definitely changed over the years.
Take the Military for example.
First batch had relatively shallow serrate with moderate teeth.
Gen two had wicked pointer serrations with slightly angled/raked teeth.
Modern versions seem to be somewhere in between.

Re: Liner Lock Failure??

The compression lock is superb but I still have a soft spot for the liner lock if it’s engineered correctly- as Spyderco always do. The Military has been one of my favourite folders since it first appeared in the mid 90s and I have never had one come close to failing. Liner locks are fine as long as...

More C36 vintage goodness

Hi guys, I picked up another Military from ‘96 today. A satin serrated 440v model in mint condition. Locks up like a bank vault. Can’t fault it. Interesting to compare the 1st gen serrations to the more aggressive 2nd gen version.
Love these golden oldies👍

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.

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...

Re: Kapton washers

Thanks for info and help guys, much appreciated!
PM sent Roland👍

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