I visited the new SFO last week, Tuesday I think. I stopped at the old store not realizing it had moved. I got kind of lost on the way after I turned off of 93 I missed a left turn and ended up driving past a bunch of farms. Anyway, it is open and it looks like it will be a very nice space with room...

Thanks for the pictures. This sounds and looks like another great folder, I can't wait to get my hands on one.

It is great to see Lance and USPS winning but this isn't a particularly exciting tour. It is kind of like wacthing Formula 1; Schumacher gets the lead and the race is over. Not only is the OLN coverage great, but that Lance Chronicles show is too. Didn't see any spydies while I watched, but they sho...

Sorry to hear that. I can sympathize. I lost a Simonich Cetan about 5 years ago and it still hurts. It was there when I started my walk through the woods and not there when I got back to my apartment. Looked for it for days.

The military is an incredibly satisfying knife to use. While I normally EDC an SE dodo and PE Para-Military, when I come home I swap for the military. And it is what I carry on weekends. It cuts like crazy, is big yet light and easy to hold, it kind of melds right into my hand. And nothing beats the...

I have found that the para does open as quickly for me as the military does. Neither do either of them lock with the loud re-assuring click of the military. In fact one of them barely locks at all, I need to make sure it is locked. I close it by compressing the lock with the index finger and using m...

The para cuts so well. What has been odd for me is that it feels like I am holding a Military and so I try to cut as if I had the Military in my hand and the action isn't quite the same. It's like the Para tricks me a bit. It has kept an edge and has been one part of my EDC since I got it. The other...

I just carry them in one of the zippered pockets in my luggage. Lately I only bring my Dodo. The furthest place? So far that would be Greece. One day I will make it to Asia.

The Dodo is my favorite knife. I like the Paramilitary and Military, but the Dodo is astounding. It is a great traaveling knife too; it packs so much cutting into a small non-threatening package that I hope no one in the TSA will take issue with when they see it in my luggage.

Mine open pretty much like you describe. Of the two I have, one has noticable vertical play, the other doesn't.

I got home and got a chance to work with the paramilitary and the military. The paramilitary fits my hand more naturally than the millie; I like the fact that I can never even tell the knife has a lock when I grip it. The liner lock on the millie never gave me any trouble, but I always knew it was t...

I was at the right place at the right time I guess. When I get back home I will do some side by side photos with a Military for comparison.

The compression lock is very very nice.

I just picked on up from the SFO. Every six weeks or so I come out here from Chicago and it was really nice to see these in stock. I will try to post a review later on tonight. Quickly though, I really like the logo engraving; it is very tasteful. As expected the knife is scary sharp. It rides very ...
