... I quickly realized how super handy a larger PE blade can be it wasn't long before I gravitated toward a larger/longer EDC. Now I would feel sort of naked if I didn't have my Millie or C-60 Ayoob in my pocket
I had to flag this because it is soo true! I used to think the PM was perfect and after the improved version PM2 came out and I got it in my favorite steel, I was all set and could stop buying knives
I also thought: the military is too big, because I have small hands, and too big because the PM2 took care of my cutting needs...
I finally got a military and everything changed. Now I have several, in most of my favorite steels (but not 4V... yet), and came to the same realization: that extra blade length REALLY IS very useful, that I could live with a liner lock and not a compression lock (still my favorite, but its a preference, not a deal breaker), that the Mili is one of the most ergonomic folders I have every handled, even with my stubby fingers. That includes opening and closing action, handling during cutting, and the all important usability in cold weather while wearing heavy gloves. And as a bonus, it carries easily despite its length, and is very light (a reason why I dislike Ti framelocks - too heavy, plus harder to unlock.
I really do not need another Mili, but I will buy one in 4V at least. I confess I want a Cruwear Shaman first, though.
Bottom line is, we often ask just for fun (it is just for fun, isn't it ?
), if you could only have one folder, what would it be? For me it is the Cruwear Mili.
