Trade Ti millie for sprint run? Fair trade?

Postby sjakh » Wed Oct 10, 2012 3:27 am

I am contemplating trading my NIB Ti millie (which I love so very much) for a sprint run in cts-xhp also NIB. Monetarily, I've seen forum guys say the sprint run version can be had from 160-180, but can't seem to find the knife anywhere. Will it be produced again? I got my TI for around 190. Again, I love my Ti but can't justify keeping it because as a soldier I need a user, and the lighter the better. Also, i figure I CAN always pick up another Ti later.

Sorry if i sound like a noob fellas, but that's exactly what I am, lol.

I think that you have already made up decision. It's yours to call anyway.
Good luck with the decision, .thanks for your service, and stay safe.

You can always pick up a Ti later

I'd do it in a blink of an eye...

I love XHP as a user steel and I like the G10 platform over the Ti anyway.

That's just me though...

sjakh welcome to the forum. I think its a fair trade. Ti still in production. brown xhp will only get harder to find. Its a sprint from 2011 and had very good reviews.

I don't know if anyone would want to trade an XHP for a Titanium, but you should be able to sell the titanium and use the money to get yourself an XHP.

I like the XHP better than I would like a Titanium.

Best of luck!

I'd put the XHP blade in a Ti Military, but that's just me :D

There has been some talk of this, and I believe the conclusion was the frame lock knives are ground differently, so this would most likely not work...

Id trade the Ti millie, then next time around pick up the fluted version! It is SOOOOO much nicer, and honestly trumps my sebenzas for smoothness
