The Spyderco Military C36GPDBL is a large and solid pocket knife. The Military was designed in 1996 by Sal Glesser, the founder and owner of Spyderco. His goal was to develop a light-weight folding knife for general military use which could actually handle the task. Considering the popularity of the Military he was very successful in achieving his goals.
This is the special 'Dark Blue' version with a blade made from CPM S110V steel. A stainless type of steel that is very popular amongst enthusiasts. With a very thin grind, a perfect slicer. S110V is also called a type of super steel. The extreme wear resistance makes sure that this knife stays sharp for a very long time. We recommend you to be careful with sideways movements, this type of steel can namely chip in case of abuse. Of course this will make sure your knife also lasts longer.
The Military is a relatively large folding knife which, with a weight of 120 grams, can only be called light-weight. The 10 cm long flat-ground blade can easily be opened with one hand. Thanks to the large thumb hole this is even a piece of cake while wearing gloves. The blade is locked with an incredibly decent and reliable liner lock.
The handle is made from ergonomically shaped G-10. This is a nearly indestructible glass fibre laminate which guarantees excellent grip under almost all conditions. The knife is enhanced with a decent pocket clip.
