Nice work, MMJ!

It looks more like an Endura than a Military now, though. But, with that Millie handle, you've got yourself a great everyday work knife. Especially with that CTS-XHP steel!

Cheers, mate!

Fantastic presentation! Kudos, mate -- I thoroughly enjoyed sharing your adventure, vicariously from the comfort of my home. That was a beautiful snake you chanced upon. The anaconda looked ferocious, also! lol.

Thanks for an enjoyable diversion!

Yes. I was on the "courtesy wait list." Yes. I was notified a couple of days ago. Yes. I contacted KW the moment I was notified. Yes. I was told that I would have to wait until Thursday morning. Yes.

Absolutely, totally, strongly agree. This is one of those situations where, basically regardless of how you handle the situation, you are going to have tons of people really angry about the situation. No. That's not true. If they had just given those of us who had waited on their stand-by list an o...

Surely the OP started this thread on April 1st? Speaking of the OP, where is that wiley rascal, anyway? With new posts appearing faster than kernels on an ear of corn I should think that he would at least make an appearance in his own thread just to refute some of these pro-comp-lock testimonials. I...

Bravo! Well done, mate! I have been sitting on the fence considering the G. Bradley for a spell, now. I think that your most excellent review may well be the extra nudge I've needed to pull the trigger on one? In any event, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments and viewing the great pics and co...

Congratulations! Beautiful knife, fersure! I have the regular, non fluted, Ti Military and would love to score a fluted version. Yours is the first one I have seen with such a uniform coloring. Indeed, it does seem to lose a bit of the aesthetic appeal with this new process and the lack of purplish ...

It was returned for a refund. I would have been disappointed with the grind on that blade, also. It's unfortunate that you had this experience with such a great knife as the Spyderco Military. Based upon my experience with Spyderco I know that the grind on your knife is the exception rather than th...

I am truly hard-pressed to fully understand why some here seek to nullify a legitimate complaint about an obviously flawed knife by insisting that it's "only cosmetic" and "it doesn't affect the knife's performance." And then to suggest that if the OP wants perfection he should buy a custom knife or...

I had to look at that photograph a couple of times and then compare it to my own digicam Millie before I could fully comprehend just how much steel is missing from that blade. I'm guessing, but I bet that blade is close to 2mm narrower at that point than it should be. I hope you don't mind that I at...

I received and posted pics of my Brown S35VN Para 2 earlier in this thread. This post will feature the newest Para 2 in my growing collection of Spyderco knives... Orange Good...
