Although Spyderco’s Military Digital Camouflage Knife was designed for military users, it’s one of Spyderco’s best choices for civilians as well, with a rugged build and special features other Spyderco lightweights lack. Anyone interested in a dependable folding clip knife should give this one a look.
Thumb stud opening systems sometimes threaten to carve off the side of your thumb if there’s a little grit in the mechanism. The steel loop of the Spyderco camo knife is a much better method, holding the tip of the thumb securely for smooth and safe opening every time. Keeping the interior of a one-hand opening folder clean often is difficult, especially with a skeletonized build. Spyderco’s Military Camo knife uses a solid frame and reduces those problems with a more protective design. No modern clip knife works well if it’s filled with hay or sand or gummed up with the leftovers of a hunting expedition. With maintenance in mind, Spyderco designed the Military Camo knife with spacers that allow better access to the inside of the handle. Debris is visible and easily removed.
The shape of the 5-1/2-inch handle provides plenty of hand security, and the G-10 slabs were engineered for a non-slip grip. An open length of 9-1/2 inches includes 4 inches of dependable, corrosion-resistant CPM S30V high carbon steel, enough knife for any common task. The secure liner lock gives the Military Camo knife much of the strength of a small fixed blade but releases easily for quick return to the pocket. Only 4.25 ounces in weight, this knife adapts to camping and hiking needs perfectly and makes a good choice for the handyman also.
What impresses me the least is the digital camouflage, of little use in a folding knife bound for the pocket and only increasing the chances you won’t find it if you drop it in the woods or the desert sand. Fortunately, this knife is also available in easily spotted orange.
