    I recently got a black handle Millie and gifted it to my buddy PG. Also got myself a Para II with DC scales to match my Military. OH, and another Endura as a gift for another coworker>

    The bender continues...

    It's a simple back lock. the handle is composite (g-10) the steel is VG-10 (made in Japan)

    It's a very reasonably priced chunk of folding cutlery.

    Today I got a para-military Spiderco knife with CPM S30V blade.

You can find knock offs of every style and name (brand) but they all have one thing in common, inferior materials, workmanship and blatant ripoff of the REAL knife makers.

    I recently picked up two new spiderco knives. Endura #087 v and #167 v (made in the USA)

    Seriously, do you really want a knife that will break off when you need it most. And serrations can do a lot of irreparable damage , all I'm sayin'.

    I'm 50/50 on serrations. I figure if I ever need to cut through a seat-belt, leather, or denim serrations and a curved blade are a good idea. That being said, I find them less than aesthetically appealing.

    Actually... My buddy Jerry that got the Ka-Bar has cut himself with it twice already... Other than that? Not really much call for cutting folks.

    I gave that JD Smith to my buddy Paul on Friday! He was stoked but I don't think he knows just what he's got yet... Since this was a "sprint run" there are only 1,199 other knives like it in the world. It will join the sprint run Rookie as a collector's item soon.

    I hope it will serve him well for many years to come!

In a collision anything lose will become random projectiles bouncing off surfaces while things in a compartment remain contained. If you survive the initial impact/trauma and still have faculties, more power to you. Use that glass breaker and seat belt cutter! Extricate YOURSELF so paramedics/ERT won't cut your clothes off!

    LOL
    Geez. that'd be embarrassing all banged up and half naked in the middle of the street surrounded by flashing lights and everyone gawking.

    Says a lot for being prepared and being smart about it.

    And I bet that pressure gauge comes in real handy lol.

    Happy father's day BTW.

    I keep a serrated utility in the glove box in case I need to rip a seat belt off in a hurry but my plain edge will do it just as fast if it stays sharp. There's a reason and a season for everything under the sun but I just never found a NEED for that style of blade.
