TheSpyderco 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.
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 handle has a digital camouflage pattern. This is a pattern built from 'blocks' that has a better camouflage effect than the traditional version. The knife is enhanced with a decent pocket clip. Diameter thumb hole: 1.4 cm.
