    I know it is a pipe-dream, and I have a better chance of marrying Natalie Portman than I do of ever seeing this come to fruition, but I love my carbon fiber Mil, and I think that a Military with this peel-ply CF scale on one side, and a titanium framelock scale on the other would be the sickest, coolest (add expletive here) clipit ever. Of course, it would probably list at $300+ so nevermind. But still... :D :D :D

    How about putting the CF scale on the other side and making it a framelock Compression Lock?

    We'd have to call that the Military 2 though. ;)

    I would rather have one with smooth titanium handles with whatever type of lock the majority of people wanted but I do like your idea :thumbup: .

    But think about it, still much better price than a Sebenza or a Strider SmF, right in line with the Emerson HD-7 and CQC-12.

    I'd settle for a compression lock Military. Anything is better than the liner lock it has now.

    I have found that the Sebenza is my perfect EDC but I still love and collect Spydercos.
    Spyderco really needs a short run of a higher end Ti frame lock.I would like to see the G10 and Ti but all Ti would be good too.
    If not the Military a good one to bring back in a frame lock would be the handle of the Ti Lum tanto but with a drop point blade.

    I really want a Mili with a black blade and OD green handle, but since you said frame lock........I'll take one of those with titanium handles, and a stonewashed blade. Wishful thinking.:thumbup:

    Sorry for the ignorance, but what is the point of only have one side with the CF?

    Simplicity of construction, with a single slab of titanium replacing the steel linerlock and CF scale. Some feel that the framelock scale is "stronger" than a conventional linerlock. Using G10 on one side and a titanium framelock on the other is a style that has become increasingly common in tactical folders. If nothing else, it looks cool. ;)

    I guess I will have to venture out of the Spyderco homeland and take a look...;)
