Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! There was this thread over on General about what knife(s) were you into 10 years ago and it made me realize something. Precisely 10 years ago I was buying my first Millie, a plain jane S30V. I was stoked, it immediately kicked out everything else I was carrying at the time. In fact, I was so thrilled with my new Millie that in a couple of months I was buying my second (foliage green D2) and in a couple more my third (the CF BG-42). 10 years have passed and my original Millie is still good to go. Actually, if you ignore a couple of scuffs and dings in the G10 handles, it still looks quite good too. Lockup has moved more towards the 50% mark but has remained as vault-ish as in day 1... ... and the blade is still dead-centered All in all, great manufacturing standards, I don't think there are too many items with a lifespan of more than 10 years in today's world. 10 years and 16 Millies later, I still think the Military is the best production folder. Ever.
