Always thought that if I´d get an alternative to my Enduras (perfect size for me for general use) it would be the Native Chief... but your Millie pics and how much I enjoy the linerlock on my S35VN Tenacious (in use I prefer it even over the backlock) makes me think that perhaps I should get a Millie again - with its comfy handle and perhaps even better linerlock... rolleyes:
I'm still not sure how it happened, but the Military became my #1 again.
When I carried my gorgeous pakkawood police the other day I missed having the Millie in my pocket.
On paper I should like the Chief better. Lockback, no hump, thinner blade, four way clip. But the Military works really well for me.
Same for me on the Military. Like Wartstein I am fan of the liner lock, and like vivi - having owned, carried and used the knives listed above - I prefer the Military most. Such a great knife in hand & use.
I have owned only one single Millie in my life, a custom wood scaled one.
Main reasons why I sold it eventually: A bit long in right front pocket, a bit fragile looking tip, only tip down - these things made me carry one of my Enduras much more often.
But like Vivi said: Ever since I sold the Millie I actually miss it quite often.. mostly just the "special Millie way of comfort" - extremely good in hand, and for me there still is nothing as convenient in use as a good linerlock.
I think I´ll just have to own one again eventually, and this time it will stay. I´d probably figure out how to use the lanyard hole to improvise a tip up carry option and just carry it in pants with wider front - or even side/leg pockets...
Good thing: I am totally fine with S30V, actually really like that steel, so I don´t have to hunt for some sprint or exclusive..
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
