I have a combo military, bought it like 10 yrs ago. Kicking myself for not getting a plain edge. Love the knife itself, and would definitely get another, but this was my first foray into combo edges, and I am not impressed. Thinking of selling this one to help fund a new one with a plain edgeJAfromMN wrote:No combo Military .

The military is a great blade from what I've heard. Fondled one once in AZ and it felt good. sturdy and robust. I'm very excited to be getting a 440v SE millie soon.JAfromMN wrote:tr4022 wrote:anagarika wrote:Tod,
Try the trick of brushing the lock aside. I can do it with both left or right hand. IIRC, i posted the trick over the BF thread.
Thanks for the tip, Anagarika, I'll give it a try. Hmmm, looks like JAMinn already has his new knife, but the question now is, How long can we keep this thread goin'? Here's my contribution for the day.
Lol I'm already rethinking the harpy as my work knife.
I know what I want now though and our boy Harley is letting me test his. MILITARY. I want mine in combo edge or fs
Interesting thread JA You mention the Dyad for a possible "Work Knife"? I carried/EDCed a C-44 Dyad ( the big model) for a little over a year and loved having the two premium quality blades at hand. Because I personally use Spyderedged ( serrated) and plain edged blades both on a daily basis and the Dyad was a good one for me. There were two minor complaints I had about the C-44 Dyad however>> first off there is no lanyard hole or attachment to implement the use of a lanyard and when I'm in the woods or around construction sites or going from place to place working I almost always use a lanyard for my more valuable folders anymore.JAfromMN wrote:Dyad???
Well JA all I can say is that some time you just flat out get what you pay for. I will admit that a $160 price tag for a C-44 Dyad does seem to be a bit extravagant for a folding pocket knife>> especially one you'll be working hard with. However don't forget the old adage "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" and more often than not that's kind of been the story of my life to a large degree and as long as you don't lose it or get it stolen the knife will pay for itself in the long haul. Really you should look at it as an investment of sorts.JAfromMN wrote:The delica is a little small.
I'm going to carry it until I figure out something.
If the dyad I'd like wasn't 160.00 I'd buy one. I think it's the knife Id be the most happy with.
