It's a **** knife, get over it. If it is too high, then don't buy it and shut the hell up.

Either buy it or not. I totally don't get the whole drama either.

If you're not a member of Badger and Blade, sign up! Great group over there (almost like here) that's made a world of difference in my shaves.

I shave every day with a str8 razor, and I learned everything at B&B - great forum indeed :)

My beater knife is my ZDP-189 DragonFly. It is small, it is very sharp, and I would not get upset if I loose it break it, etc., which is why many times I carry it as my backup/second knife (the Millie CF M390 being the main one). This Dragonfly would be the one I would hand over if anyone needs to b...

That is also why I am big believer in having mentors. I am fortunate enough to have two: one for electronics, and one for machining - totally invaluable!

Great review. My go-to knife is my CF M390 Millie. It feels great in the hand and it just plain works great.

I buy very few knives now, so I am very picky/selective. For me, in order:
- Made by Spyderco
- The steel used
- The design/application

To give you an idea, these are the only 3x knives in my rotation:
- ZDP-189 Dragonfly
- CTS-20PM PM2
- CF M390 Millie

My go-to knife is my CF M390 Millie.

My backup (or for wearing at the office) is a CTS-20cp Para 2.

My backup to my backup is a ZPD Dragonfly.

The worst part of all of these fakes isthat there are people that actually believe that they are real and then Spyderco gets a bad reputation because the knives are POS. Yup. It is not the monetary loss from Spyderco loosing that sale to a Chinese knock-off (if that person is not willing to pay for...

No, what I meant was that I carry my right-handed CF M390 Millie in either my left front pocket or left rear pocket, and I can get to it and operate it perfectly with my left hand, just as the video showed.

wquiles you are right, lefty can open the right handed millie (good video). But the clip will still be on the wrong side. Yes, my knife is after all the right-hand model, but within a very short time I also got used to getting the knife in/out of my left front/back pocket with my left hand with the...

What locking mechanism is the CF m390 Millie? I've found right handed frame locks to be acceptably ambidextrous but liner locks not at all. The CF M390 is also a liner lock. But what is unique in the Millie is the huge opening in the left scale (opposite to the clip) since it was designed to be abl...
