Military Family Sprint Runs?

Postby jdw » Wed Jan 15, 2020 8:53 am

I wonder if there has been any discussion of running a sprint with the entire Military family that would be similar to what Spyderco does with the Seki line up. I know that there are a lot of offerings for the PM2 and the Para 3 with the same scale/steel combo but it would be nice to see the Military added to some of these runs. I wonder what prevents that now and what the realistic chance there is of more Millies included in the future?

Noone apart from Sal and Eric really knows what is the future of Millie. Maybe it will be discontinued after Military 2....maybe not.
There has been zero sprint runs of Military last year....maybe we get one this year...I would like to have a sprint run Spyderco in my pocket at some point, and the Millie would be great.

Again, NOT bashing the comp.lock at all, but it would be a shame if the great Military ("1") with the also great liner lock it offers would disappear and be actually replaced by yet another comp.lock knife (Military "2")

There are SOO many (comp.lock knives) out there to choose from already in the mid- to high end Spyderco range...
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

No sprints, and wasn't there just 1 exclusive last year (BHQ) ?? That is a bit surprising for such an iconic model.
20 :spyder:'s in 11 different steels
2 - ZT's - 0460 and 0470
1 - Microtech Ultratech DE OTF
1 - Civivi Elementum

I don't need the Military 1 to be replaced, more militaries for everyone! I am probably waiting for the Military 2 to buy in though.

Agreed! The Mille is a favorite of mine because of its liner lock. Waaay easier to use with gloves on right or left handed.

Waiting for K390 Military, keep the liner lock please. So much easier with gloves or bare hands.

Maybe S45VN? I was kinda expecting to see Para3, PM2, and the Millie all released with the new steel.

My first Millie was the burnt ReX sprint that I got as soon as they dropped. At first I thought it was too big and left in my safe while I continued to collect PM2s. This summer I fell in love with my Millie and started EDCing it. Now I have a bunch of nice PM2s I hardly ever carry and yet I still buy new ones when I see a sprint or exclusive drop. I’d love to see a bunch of Millie sprints and exclusives drop so I can stop buying PM2s. I absolutely love my Millie.
Too many Military family variants... and yet not enough.
