I've been lurking for a while, and had to sign up and post when I saw this one. The Military is my favorite knife (carrying mine IWB by my right kidney as I write, my Chinook is in my front pocket). Its my EDC and has been used for a little bit of everything, from skinning out a little 6 point buck to "hard core" use as a kitchen knife, to cleaning fish and whittling. You actually forget that the knife is there. It carries very light. Lock up is solid and for me, the balance is great. The knife feels alive and fast. Although its not in the MBC line-up, I would feel perfect confidence using it for defense, if for no other reason than the fact it feels "familiar". The Millie feels big until you use it, then, as Matt said, other knives feel small. You won't regret getting one.
