This satin M4 Military is long gone, but be sure to check out the upcoming Spyderco Military with black coated M4 steel!
Because all great things come in pairs, we are pleased to offer the Blade HQ Exclusive Spyderco M4 Military to complement the Paramilitary 2 in the same configuration.
Spydercos Military Model is one of the most iconic factory folding knives ever made. Designed by Cutlery Hall of Fame member and Spyderco founder Sal Glesser, it epitomizes the reliable, high-performance qualities that have come to define Spyderco knives. Created exclusively for Blade HQ, this distinctive expression of the Military Model takes the classic design to all-new heights with CPM® M4 blade steel and natural G-10 handle scales.
One of the premier steels for top-quality custom blades and knives used in competitive cutting, CPM-M4 is a special purpose high speed steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its advanced alloy composition, high vanadium content, and extremely fine grain structure give it exceptional wear resistance and toughnessproperties that translate to outstanding edge retention and impact resistance in knife blades. The PlainEdge¢ blade of this knife is full-flat ground and distally tapered for a remarkable balance of strength, low-friction cutting performance, and point utility. Its Trademark Round Hole¢ unmistakably brands it as a Spyderco product and is fully accessible for quick one-handed opening with either hand.
The handle of this Exclusive knife features stainless steel liners nested into textured natural G-10 scales. The near-translucent quality of the G-10 highlights the lightweight, open-backed handle construction and the structure of the knife's sturdy LinerLock mechanism. To ensure ease of carry and keep the knife poised for a rapid draw, the handle includes a stainless steel pocket clip configured for right-side tip-down carry.
A unique variation of one of Spyderco's most classic designs, this Blade HQ Exclusive is destined to become a highly prized collector's item.
Too pretty to use, but knowing if will perform if need be is nice.
These Blade HQ exclusives with natural G-10 handles are must haves!
Too often soldier or tactical knives have zero utility and are heavier than some carry guns or worst of all in my opinion are made of slick materials without aggressive ergos. Of course this is the milly which performs great on those points and the m4 steel has performed excellent, i have kept mine coated in CLP and have zero problems with rust. The g10 is both grippy and truly great to look at!
Beauty of a knife and the M4 steel is an awesome upgrade.
Nice scales and light for it's size. Mine came very sharp, love the m4 steel. Very nice. Fast deployment and spot on centering. If you like military's you have to own this one before there gone.
Beautiful Knife!!!! Super Fast Shipping!!! Thanks!!!!
Also a very fast delivery! Get um while their hot.
Blade centered, materials flawless, blade uber sharp. A must have EDC if you like a large folder.
Really awesome knife. I've had it a month now. Deployment and locking is really flawless. Blade is as every other Spyderco, unblemished and super sharp. The knife overall is large so it's part of my survival kit versus EDC. Another thing to keep in mind is the beautiful handle will darken/stain with extended use. How quick it happens depends on how often it's used and how oily/dirty your hands are. Overall, another superior product from Spyderco.
I received my M4 Millie 2 days sooner than originally expected, that's always a good thing! Beautiful fit and finish, once again, by Spyderco. Probably the sharpest factory edge on a knife I've ever received, and I have a couple hundred blades. Can't wait to try it out. Great job Blade HQ on this knife.
Blade hq hit a home run with the materials chosen for this bad boy. The m4 is beautifully ground, the jade scales are sharp, & the liner lock doesn't stick @ all. But best of all; when you flick the blade open with the spydy hole, it flys open as if it is spring assisted, but it isn't. I was impressed! Grab yours before its gone....
Thank you for the wonderful knife and fast delivery! I searched the Internet for Military M4 and found this unexpected surprise. More knives, especially Spyderco Military!
This is the best design for a tip down EDC I've seen. The ease of deployment, authoritative opening and super-light weight are my favorite features. The blade is beautiful, and overall construction is precise and strong. Nice Spidey-BHQ exclusive in unique natural G10. Cheers! Thank you.
First off, absolutely awesome customer service! Two hours from time ordered to time shipped. Ordered on Thursday at 1400 Central Time and received on Saturday. The Military with M-4 blade and Natural G-10 handles/scales is a natural beauty and come extremely sharp. Only took a minute to nick my thumb! Deployment feels natural and lock up is fast & solid. A large knife and a great price for what you get!
So happy to live in a place with access to craftsmen and passionate souls willing to execute and make available such a fantastic and galaxy class tool. Galaxy class indeed given the manufacturing location is given on the blade as Golden Colorado U.S.A. Earth. Great in hand. G10 is grippy. Snaps open right out of the box. Well done Spyderco. Well done BladeHQ. A great answer to the question, if I had to send my child off to war, what blade would I want for them.
Awesome big brother to the PM2! Just hope they sell out soon!
You can't go wrong with a Spyderco Military. This version is absolutely gorgeous! Blade steel is excellent and the jade scales complete this iconic knife. As always BHQs customer service is the best!
Great job having this one produced blade hq! The blade flies right out- excellent action,lock up,fit and finish. Excellent all the way around. A beautiful piece. Ya gotta love Spyderco's constant quality improvement! Why they haven't used more m4 I don't know. Should have been using it sooner but here it is now and I love it..... My fourth blade of cpm m4 and I'm in love with it. Absolutely my favorite steel.
Received the knife today. Excellent build quality! Everything is tight and centered. Great aesthetics and the blade is extremely sharp. Love the ergos and jimping. Very lightweight and slim for a large folder. The only thing that I can knock it on right now, is it's a little expensive for G 10. I love the way the scales look, so I don't mind. Overall, I'm very happy and it's going to be at the top of my rotation for awhile. Great turn around time from Blade HQ!
very gorgeous, has been a safe queen as i already own a regular military
I love the knife. I had been exclusively been carrying this knife since I got it months ago. I put a very nice edge on it with my wicked edge sharpener and the M4 appears to hold it well. Only thing that concerns me a little is some semi-permanent marks on the blade. Almost looks like slight, and I mean VERY slight, surface rust. I am not familiar with M4 steel at all and don't know how rust resistant it is. I would just say to anyone buying this knife, remember to keep the blade oiled. I can easily clean the blade up with a little 0000 steel wool and wd-40 so it isn't a big deal. And maybe mine just came in contact with something that left the staining. I just don't know.
I like it.
No options on clip carry method. Just tip down, right side. Very limiting on carry option and a big downside. Literally the reason I don't like this knife. Wish it were like the PM2 with all 4 options available. Otherwise great knife, but this causes a blemish on an otherwise excellent knife. If you want left-handed carry, or tip up, this isn't going to have those options.
