I have really been interested in one of these for a long time. I even emailed him and found out that I could order one directly from him vice going through GSA. I was even more excited to find that I qualified for the Military/LEO discount. So before I even consider pulling the trigger, Does anyone have one? Can anyone tell me how good they really are?

I've always wanted one of those too. I don't know much about them, but they are cool.

Ron Miller (deceased) designed that knife and in collaboration with Reese Wieland, Jr, and Charles Ochs, were attempting to sell it to the military, which did occur in a minor fashion. The knife is everything that it could possibly be as far as construction, materials, and imagination could make it be. That Mr. Ochs has maintained a price structure that makes this piece a real bargain is a testimonial to his character. I had the pleasure of making some of the first folder pouch type sheaths for these beauties and was flattered to have had the opportunity to do so!

All I can say is GET ONE! I have a model that is fairly old. 1984 I think. Its as solid as can be. I bought mine on the secondaty market, but love it. It is a well designed, well built knife that wont let you down.

God Bless

Charlie made those to be used and abused. I have bought many from Charlie for resale. Getting them from him is the way to go. I did keep one for my collection.
