Yab, what's wrong with your M4 Millie? It looks used or something. I thought they were just supposed to sit in a safe and accumulate $$$ value... :p

I love that knife of Yab's. That was a CF s90v that he swapped his M4 blade into after wearing out the s90v goodness.

Yeah, the Military definitely looks like overkill for me, at least for now. Para-Military it is.

Ordered. :D

What's a safe? :confused: ;)

I carry my Military in my back pocket, upright, with a bandanna filling the rest of the space. The regular Military will sometimes slip behind the bandanna but the slightly thicker Ti Military works flawlessly.

Hi:

I like mine alot. Originally purchased as a safequeen, I edc it now and only leave it at home if i know I am visiting cities with a 3" or less knife blade law.

I really don't notice it in my pocket. I've been dedicating it's use just for food now because it is so sharp. pretty cool to slice a loaf bread with it with a non-serrated knife.

I hardly ever use kitchen knifes or steak knives anymore. I always have a better knife in my pocket. I may try the bigger Military someday.

Yeah, I have four of those kind. I didn't know they made them for knives. Why bother? :D

Sounds like you need a decent kitchen knife. Turns out they are a lot cheaper than most of the knives in this thread, so it shouldn't be a problem.

And ruin my excuse to get out my Spyderco when I'm preparing or eating meals? :) Actually, we have knives in the kitchen that are more than adequate.

Just two handguns. The rifle is leaning against it. I've never bought a gun, but I'm slowly building a collection of free ones.

My Para-Military 2 just arrived today. :D It feels light compared to my Endura G10. I wasn't expecting the handle to be open so everything inside is visible. I've wondered if this encourages dirt and lint to collect inside quicker. The locking mechanism is cool. I've already switched the clip to my preferred position, LH, point-up. I can't wait to try it out. The box was smashed because the retailer just put it in a plastic envelope with no packing materials. It's a good thing that I'm not one of those people who buys knives and keeps them NIB.

You should never have to ask yourself "do i really need another knife?" The answer is obvious...

Para is nice, Millie is nice. Both are just slightly different.

I think Yab stores his knives in his unsafe. :)

So far, I haven't personally found many cutting situations where bigger is better. The Para seems like a good size.

Congrats, I love to see the "wear" in the knives, it gives them character.

I probably agree, but still there is just something about holding that Military in your hand. It's like you can handle any situation that comes your way. Don't get me wrong, I love the Para2, maybe a better pound for pound knife. But the Military is just in a different class.
