    From blade forums regarding the military 2.

    Hi uofaegr,



    As you say, there is a Mil 2 in-the-works. As mentioned, the current model (which has been improved regularly over the past 15+ years), will remain in the line. The Walker linerlock offers some unique advantages that the Military model appreciates. the stop lock is refined enough to put into a model, but the capacity in Golden to keep up with current Millie models won't be expanding until after SEP (When the new building will be finished). As Singularity said (and he's been around long enough to have a good idea of our habits), it could be a while.

    Sal's mention of a stop lock got my attention (as I'm not otherwise drawn to the Military). First I've heard of this mechanism but hardly the first time Sal has mentioned it. Note the date of this link...
    IN MY POCKET: Air plus one from Manix/Native/Caly/Stretch/Para Military family. RECENTLY ARRIVED: SB Stretch Lightweight. ON MY RADAR: S110V Manix2 Lightweight (pre-ordered); CF S110V Native5 (pre-ordered); VG10 Caly 3.5; Pingo. HOLY GRAILS: 440V Starmate (PE); Superhawk; Manix (C95 FFG PE); S90V Manix2 (C101 "Mini" or 83mm). DREAMS: Tatanka (the long-awaited Bison!); Sage5.

    Thanks. Still leaves me scratching my head, but this probably isn't the thread for delving into theories.

    Just located TailorMade Hobbit, marked with Soldier of Fortune logo and SOF Anniversary date, one of 52 made. Unused and with River City sheath.

    On its way to my collection now

    Awaiting further news on sheathwork for Pigmy Warrior and release of this evolution of the Warrior Knife.

    Did talk with Randy Wanner a few months ago. He still has the original prototype as ground in a garage from a piece of steel picked up off the floor. Unsharpened, just the basic concept in physical form. Pretty neat.

    sal
    The Manix LWT S110v is coming in hot fellas! Faster than I expected....

    Also, if I comprende corectly, "Midnight blue" is the new S110v color? Or just a distinct blue from the standard BD1 blue to differentiate the two?

    This is great news. I've been wishing for something like this since the original came out. I love the knife but have never been fond of the steel.
