Old military construction concerns

Postby Wanimator » Tue Sep 04, 2018 8:11 pm

I've recently acquired an old model Military with the transparent nylon or polymer type washers. Also, a single liner and polymer/frn backspacer. Can these washers be switched out for a different washer provided by Spyderco in case of failure? I love the knife but this feature seems to facilitate the possibility of scale rub.

I wouldn't worry about it. I've used the hell out of one and many others have, they work great for years and years.

Awesome, I just don't like the scale rub. Not in the slightest.

If it isn't rubbing now it shouldn't any time soon. Some knives seem to "settle in" more than others...Millies don't really change much at all from day 1.

I certainly hope so! I disassembled and greased the contact points with a really high quality synthetic grease to prevent future issue.
