    I'll take the 710 over the Millie any day. I own them both, but the 710 has a reversible, tip up pocket clip which rides nice. The Spyderco's clip is tip down, right hand only that shows way too much knife hanging out the pocket. And the axis lock being tough a nails and also being ambidextrous makes it the winner.

    710 for me. I have owned 3 Militarys and sold them all within hours of getting them, something about them just does not work for me. I like the BM 710 better.

    I like the 710, mostly because you can carry tip up. The military is also ungainly IMO. The 710 just disappears in the pocket, but the millie does not. Although the new Millie framelocks are really nice, I'll never warm up to the millie because of the tip down only carry...And this is coming from a dyed in the wool Sypderco fan.

    AFCK 806. Design was based on the Spyderco Military. I prefer the Axis lock and blade/handle shape.

    710 hands down! I love the strength of the Axis lock, and the fact that the pocket clip is reversible and rides low in the pocket.

    Bought myself a Christmas present, picked up a Spydie Manix (Sprint Run)....this thing is awesome....full-flat grind S30V, ambidextrous lock, G10 scales, tip-up reversible carry with fairly deep concealment (about a half-inch shows in the pocket), crazy sharp....I like it a lot.

    Oh god, is your first instinct to run and grab a camera after you slice yourselves?!?!

    Anyway, I'm gonna have to go with the 710. I've had 4 total throughout my history and after I get rid of one, I always have to get another one.

    Didn't vote never held a 710

    I am biased towards the Millie myself :madaddy:

    Never held a 710 before but i am sure they are a fine cutting tool.

    Hm,
    I'm holding both in my hand at the moment. I feel like the 710 carries a bit better but the ti military feels a lot better in your hand with a helluva lot more real estate. Both blade shapes work well utilitarian wise. Honest to god they both have their strengths and weeknesses but I'll have to go with the millie. :)

    I have both (actually several milies) and have a strong preference for tip down carry so the 710 sits at home while the militaries get lots of pocket time.

    Military all the way and back again. The Millie is available in super awesome steels like CPM-M4 and S90V while the 710 is available in.......D2. Gee, I'm overwhelmed...

    The Millie has a beautiful and graceful drop point blade while the 710 has a crappy recurve.

    The Millie has good grippy G-10 while the 710 has fake ass slicker'n snot G-10 made in china.

    The Millie has the awesome Sypder hole which makes blade presentation a total snap even while drunk while the 710 has a funky ass little thumbstud tucked right up against the scales which the thumb skips over way too easily.

    No contest!
