Sal - Is the Military 2 still happening?

Postby vivi » Thu Mar 16, 2017 10:09 pm

There have been discussions and rumors going on between 5-10 years now. Between the frame lock and left handed variants, plus the recent CQI improvements, the original Military model seems to be getting more attention from Spyderco than ever.

Is the Military 2 still planned, or is it on hold for the time being?

Hi Vivi,

We have a design, having trouble fitting it in.

Hi Sal, quick question, are the new CQI Millies (the titanium versions more specifically) out in the wild yet? If not, do you have any idea on when they'll be delivered? Looking to purchase a fluted Ti Military but have been holding out for the CQI updates to hit, the wait is killing me!

I'm not sure about the Ti, but my S110V blurple (which is just a regular production) version has the improvements, and I'm in Russia.

The S110V has had the new changes since it was released (as do all the new sprint runs). When the 2017 catalog dropped it showed the changes on the entire Military lineup.

The problem with the Ti Military is going to be finding new stock. I'm sure it's a slower seller than other versions so venders may just not be ordering them, which means they're not getting the newest versions.

Spyderco.com has it listed, available to add to cart, if you're willing to pay MSRP.

What kind of lock will it have?

Supposedly it'll be the "Stop Lock" which we've only seen patent images of. It looks to operate similarly to a back lock. I also suspect that same patent ended up being the Power Lock. I believe the goal was to create a strong ambi lock. We really won't know​ until something official happens.

I really love the Millie design. The lock is the weak point of the knife. I am looking forward to this knife.

S110V isn't really a sprint, though, it's produced alongside the base version. If you ask a seller for pictures of the knife, the CQI will be visible.

Never said it was. I said it was released with the new changes (it was never produced with the old pattern), and all the sprint run Millies have the new changes as well.

Any lock will do as long as the lock is easily operated one-handed....

Isn't a Military with a Power Lock just a smaller, stronger Police?

The liner lock is the only reason I don't own a millie. They get rid of that and I'm in.

I do not own a millie yet because of the liner lock. It is so ordinary, you find it on $5 China knives. :( Plus I never understood why people favour a locking mechanism that puts the unlocking finger into the way of the blade's sharp edge. That just makes no sense. It is the only weak point of my K2, the only other liner lock Spydie I own.

I put the millie on my list of next purchases anyway because what good is a Spydie collection without millie?!

Now I'm thrilled to learn that there's a good chance they will replace the liner lock. Back locks are strong locks, so that's fine with me. Just curious to learn when the Millie2 will hit the shelves. Oh, and of course what steels will be used. :) Please let one be S110V... ;)
