Hi Sal, In time of Coronavirus I have the time to go deeper ... :) I am fortune enough to own Pro-Grips, the stainless steel model is exact the same knife as shown...

Re: Spyderco model ID

I can't confirm what Sal said, as I see a blade made from VG-10; this is a minor difference but therefore the name should be "Pro-Grip".

Re: Help identifying a Millie

On the basis of your pictures it's hard to say but I for myself tend to say it is not a legit Military as long as I don't have it on the table for detailed inspection.

I promised to take some pictures of the sheath and I also did some comparison sh...

Re: UK Pen ?

... and don' t forget besides the small differences in steel you will have a big difference in the springs of the UK-PKs. The stronger spring in the newer ones is a considerable improvement!

Is the Bushcraft blade shape preferred over the Proficient blade shape. Both were designed by Chris Claycomb.
