Not the OP here, still I may answer: For me the Mili is too long when closed, but I personally have no issue at all with how it feels in hand. In fact it feels great and has perfect ergos.abbazaba wrote: ↑Sat May 18, 2019 10:54 pm..
Regardless, do you have an issue with how the knife feels in your hand? Especially with big knives, what's the reason to focus on blade to handle ratio? The flexibility and leverage the Military gives you is partly why it gets so much love around here.

More details about the custom scales on the top please!ferider wrote: ↑Sun May 19, 2019 6:49 amIf anybody is interested, Aramis Model Swift scales reduce Military handle length from 5 1/2 stock to 5 1/4 " length.
Note also, that the black CF Military sans clip above weighs 111g only, with steel liners, backspacer, and 4 screws on either side. Identical to the weight of the fully linerless upcoming Chief.
Having said this, I like large knife handles. More important than longer blade. I also like heavier Pivots. Which other Spyderco has a T15 Pivot ? As an outdoors user, the Military is in a completely different category than - say - the Endura.
BTW, the Police handle is also 5 1/2" long, but feels a little easier to carry than Military, since it's thinner. Then again, a 4" blade is sometimes more useful than 4.5 (P4). I wouldn't want to live without either Military or P4 in my life
I second this !
Aramis "New Version Military Scales, Swift, Full CF, NO CLIP". Need to send him an email, as he only sells scales with clip on ebay. Same price as 253753656645@ebay. You can pick other materials, too, see the ebay listing.
