I’m not following you. How are you defining the essence of the Military? Why would a lock change make it not a Military? Why would 6 extra holes to accommodate tip up carry make it not a Military? Is the backlock Manix a Manix? It looks like a Manix. It shares an awful lot of design characteristics with the Manix. It’s even called a Manix. Who gets to decide it’s not a Manix?Bloke wrote: ↑Sun Aug 04, 2019 7:05 pmFair enough on the input!Pelagic wrote: ↑Sun Aug 04, 2019 6:40 pmSal values all the input here. I don't think he's rolling his eyes at suggestions or hints as to where the market is headed. Hardly anyone wants the military replaced. But to you'd have to be very biased towards the model not to see room for minor improvements. Spyderco has their CQI program for a reason, and it isn't because they don't put a ton of time and effort into original designs. It's because nothing is perfect.
What do you reckon would make the Military perfect ... stronger tip, holes all over the scales, different lock?
Ask for any knife you like Hitch ... everybody else does so why not?
Here’s where I take a little exception; the knife you and others want is not a Military that’s for sure! You want a power lock Military, Joe Blogs wants a compression lock Military. Jimmy Brings won’t buy one because he only carries tip up. It goes on and on but none of the knives described are a Military, not even close.
Lol, I’m mostly just taking the piss out of you Alex. I don’t really care too much if they come out with the Military 2 or not. As it stands now though, I’ll probably only buy more Millies if they start offering them tapped for tip up. As far as that “not being a Military”, meh, I’d agree with you...but then we’d both be wrong.
