Left Hand Military

Postby billy blade » Fri May 21, 2010 6:24 pm

As a southpaw I have always made do with right hand configured folders. I want to buy a Left hand Military to see if it suits me. I'm searching for input from other lefties about this great knfe.

It's a good knife, but made for the wrong hand, not the "Right".


Seriously, its a Millie, you can't go wrong, and one of a handful of knives by any maker for lefties.

It's a great knife. If south-paws are smart and not whiny they just realize that it's a right handed world, get use to it and adapt, but when an excellent knife like the LH Millie comes out then a south-paw has no choice but to immediately get one. One handed opening and closing is not an issue with this Spydie. It may feel a bit large at first but it's super to use, even for finer work. It fits my hand very well. Also not that heavy of a knife especially for it's size.

I carry my knives loose in my back pocket, so the LH Military is too bulky for me. However, if that's not an issue for you and you want a large folder that's robust, yet incredibly light, then the LH Military is definitely worth buying.

My feelings exactly.

The minute I got mine and opened it and then used the linear lock that was actually designed for a lefty I got why people like it so much. I have really enjoyed mine.

Nice choice. I'm not a lefty, but my Father, a nephew and my son are all lefties. I appreciate tools designed with lefties in mind.

My Millie

Postby Master K. » Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:37 pm

I own several Spydies and as a lefty I'm spoiled with Spyderco because they are so friendly to lefties. I have to say that I give kudos to Sal for giving us our"own" knife. I believe the the Millie is the best knife in an outstanding line of knives. Top notch in every way. You "will" love it.
