I own 2 Millies and I love the knife. I can’t bring myself to purchase the Caribbean because it is butt ugly. Everything else, steel, lock, blade shape is right up my alley and the knife will go to the top of my list when they change the handle.
I own a PM2 in S110V and a Spydiechef in LC 200N. Both steels are great. I would go with the Military hands down. You won’t regret it.
edit: for the record, the looks really turned me off initially, but they've grown on me enough for me to consider buying and using one as my ocean knife. the holdup for me is more about the handle shape. i don't like pinky hooks and would much rather see the handle narrow toward the end like the manix 2 does.
Firstly, if you've paid attention to any of the known changes (CQI and such) you'd know they do listen, but these changes don't just pop up whenever the squeaky wheel squeaks. It's a slow process. They may have changes in the works but there could also be dozens of models in line first.
Second, the handle issue you have is somewhat moddable if you're so inclined. You won't be able to get it as pointy as a Manix 2 but you can mostly eliminate the hook without getting into the liner and make it look factory done.
