JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
A lot of us love knives! We carry one everywhere and can't seem to get enough of them in our collection. The utility factor is endless, the self defense aspect is a must and if you are someone that loves gear like I do...consider it an accessory that accents your already way to cool looking outfit.
The knife universe starts with something everyone can afford and climbs from there. I like to break them down to a few basic categories. Disposables, The Work Horse, and Collectibles. My favorite of the three with out a doubt is the work horse! There is something special about a knife that is made well enough to beat up day in and day out and stand the test of time. One of the best in the business at creating a "work horse"...Spyderco. Their Made in the USA line is one of my favorites. Shapes, styles, colors, the choice is yours with the Made in the USA line, and I choose the Military Model G10. A cornerstone in Spyderco's Save and Serve line up.
The Military Model 100% meets the requirements of a high-performance. This light-weight folder is designed for hard use. The blade is made from CPM S30V steel. It's known for holding an edge and resisting rust. The 'Millie' has a modified clip-point blade laser cut with a 14 mm Spyderco Round Hole for a quick deployment.
The handle look is a Digital Camouflaged G-10 with the lock's liner nested directly into the scale. Spacers between the scales create a gap that makes things very easy to keep clean and not gunk up. The metal clip looks great and works even greater. Check out these tech specs...
