    Anticipation for Military 2 poll

    The details on the Military 2 are top secret, so far, with just a few clues being leaked ( Stoplock )...

    Vote for your ONE most longed for detail which ( possibly ) may be featured on the proposed Military 2

    These can be "confirmed" features or "hoped for" features...

    I've kept the categories broad & general...

    Please flesh out your vote with more details in the comments section, if needed

    Voted for ergos. I recently gave a Military a try, but don't dig the ergos. Hopefully the 2 will change that for me.
    Time for another !

    Can't decide until I actually know what the features will be like.

    Voted lock since the limit is one selection, but in reality I am really interested in the combined package, especially 4 way clip and hopefully a upgraded baseline blade steel.

    I love the Military just the way it is. If I could visualize how the Stop Lock works from the drawings, I'd have no interest in the Military2 at all.
    I don't believe in safe queens, only in pre-need replacements.

    Well I'm a steel hound but I figure that will likely come no matter what the rest of the features turn out to be so I vote for lock design. If I could have one wish it would be to have more blade to match the length of the handle and maybe a slightly beefier tip, and I stress slightly.

    New lock, and tip-up option are what I'm looking forward to. But I'm happy enough with the Millie 1 to wait until it's ready.

    I'm assuming one (or more) of all the features I've listed will "evolve" from the Military 1, otherwise there would be no talk of a future Milie 2...

    I likewise assume that there will some elements from Mil 1 retained or else it would have a different model designation...

    The "confirmed" details are few...our wishes & imaginations fill in the blanks in the meantime....

    I guess this poll would have been better titled "Military 2 Wishlist"

    Pocket clip. I just want to be able to carry the Military comfortably. It's a great knife already

    I say K390 would be the highly wished for feature. Slight blade shape change could also do something, but overall it's a great design. Dunno how they could improve it more then by giving it the craziest steel out there!

    Blade dimensions, the Military packs an impressive and capable blade in a very slim, light package. I hope this doesn't change.

    I like Evil D's suggestion to upsize the blade to fill the handle more. I would not have any interest in shrinking the handle to fit the current Military blade length. I really can't say I am anticipating anything other than a pillar construction and upgraded T8 torx fasteners.

    Comp lock (or power lock) and 4 position clip definitely top my list.

    I really like the ergonomics as they stand, and the blade shape is great for me. I just have a lot of trouble getting past the liner lock and the fixed position clip. I understand that the lightness is related to the liner lock, though, and I do appreciate the lightness.

    I voted clip. Mainly because it was the thing I couldn't live with on the current model. Second would be hardware. Larger lanyard tube, larger standoffs, at least t8 screws t10 would be good. While the Stoplock looks intriguing, the liner lock on the current Mili is pretty good. I would want some more info on the stop lock before I got more excited. A video showing it might do the trick since the other two things I mentioned were modded by me, but you can't modify the lock really.

    I voted Lock but honestly I love the Military as it is. With that said, I would not mind seeing a tip up/tip down carry option and pillar construction on the Military 2. One thing I love about the Military is it is a lightweight/slim package for its size. The Military does carry more like a medium sized knife when compared to other folders in its size range IMO. Like Clip already stated, I also hope this does not change with the Military 2.

    I voted for the lock, but the more I look at the old patent drawings for the Stop Lock the more it looks like the new Power Lock, except that the Power Lock has a stop pin, whereas the Stop Lock does not. However, the principle means of locking the blade is very similar. I wonder if Sal and crew won't try to roll out a new Military model with the Power Lock instead. It would be the total package: Strength, Reliability, Ergonomics, and Ambidextrous set up. What's not to like?

    I motion for a Power Lock Military 2 !!

    Hi Folks!


    My vote goes for the Lock - Compression Lock Mili!


    And I'd love to see a 4 way Pocket Clip.
    Stay Sharp!
