Spyderco C36GPCMO Military Model - CPM-S30V Blade - Digital Camouflage G-10 Handle
The Military Model, or affectionately called the "Millie" by collectors is the cornerstone of Spyderco's "Save and Serve" line up. The Military Model came about after someone asked Spyderco's owner Sal Glesser, "If your son were going into the military what folding knife would you send him with?" That started the wheels turning, and Sal developed the Military Model to fit that need, as it had to meet the requirements of a high-performance, light-weight folder designed for hard use.
Digital Camouflage is the outcome of applying engineering psychology with the study of visual biophysics and human visual performance.The pattern is made up of small micropatterns, optically reducing the eye's ability to detect and discern what it covers.Various digital patterns are developed and used for the U.S. Military to make more effective concealment for the men and women who go in harms way to protect our freedom.
The handle scales are Digital Camouflage G-10 with the lock's liner nested directly into the scale, pumping up lock strength without the addition of bulky liners. Spacers between the scales create a gap running the handle's full length exposing the inside workings for inspection and cleaning. The handle flares slightly at the front end creating a finger choil and at the butt end, which keeps the knife from slipping forward or backward in the hand while sawing or making tough or aggressive cuts. A contoured black metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry. Each Military Model Clipit is proudly made in the USA.
Please note that the digital pattern will vary on each knife and that no two knives (or sides of each knife) will be the same.
