Guys! It must be my lucky week I guess. This week my 'new' CPM 440V Military came in. My wishful-thinking of getting my old Millie back came true when I was able to make a deal with a very nice Frenchman
I bought a 440V back in 1999 during my Kosovo-tour. In 2000 I lost the knife somehow which I always regretted. This week it came in the mail. Used, but in good shape. I was suprised again by its weight and slimness...
The second one I found today. Once a year we have the Dutch Knife Event in Tiel. Strawling around I met Jurphaas again at the Adola-booth (dutch cutlery-business), off-course with large showcases with Spydies. Looking around for specials I picked out a brand new Military in S90V. I had to think a little whether to buy it or not but after a little hour I made up my mind (helped by an even better price by Adola's boss). I was right in time back at the booth because the blade had great attention.
There was a second surprise in Tiel today; I found a D2-Millie as well. I left the knife because the blade was off-center. But somehow the thought that there still is a D2 out there keeps my busy.
Two great deals this week!
