SP81GP2: C81GP2 Paramilitary 2

Why change something if it works? Because they practice the principle of C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. If they can improve it, refine it, upgrade ergos or enhance cutting performance, they do it. The Para-Military2 has several changes. They’ve narrowed the handle for better ergonomics. The (closed) blade profile is now streamlined, eliminating any angles to catch or rub in a pocket. Ambidextrously friendly four-way clip carries tip-up/tip-down, left/righthand and rests deeper in the pocket. They lengthened the blade’s tip and added more surface jimping. A larger lanyard hole for a broader variety of attachment options. Implementation of our new Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. Refinements to the overall construction from the G-10 textured handle to the CPM-S30V steel full-flat blade shout sharper performance and comfort. Compression Lock.

Spyderco Paramilitary2
Quality knife and I love the compression lock. After opening a hundred times or so, knife broke in and became even easier to open and close. Very sharp from the factory - touched it up with Spyderco Sharpmaker and it will absolutely shave hair right off your arm by simply making contact. Used the Spyderco ultra fine triangle sharpening stone and strop to sharpen even more. You will not be disappointed if you want a knife to do most anything you will encounter in your daily activities, and could probably do much more. The s30v steel is unbelievable. Great product.

One of the best Spyderco designs of all time ....
This is my 3rd Para 2. I had a camo version as well as the recently released purple/blue scale version. I got this plain steel version for my EDC rotation. I just don't understand why Spyderco doesn't use the compression lock design on more of their knives as I think it is one of their best designs ever for one handed use, even better than their caged ball bearing locks Manix series. Like other Paras, this one was perfect. The lock was smooth, releasing easily when compression lock was pushed, yet the lock up was absolutely solid without any blade wiggle. No pivot adjustment needed at all. The blade was super sharp and the fit and finish was excellent. It's just a great, purpose built knife, no more, no less, just the right amount of metal and plastic to get the job done. It is an antithesis to Zero Tolerance Knives, purposely over-built, very heavy pocket machetes, that are really practical for only very small fragment of the overall population. I do have ZT 0550 and 0560, while they are great knives in their own right, I would pick Para 2 over them 99 out 100 times for most EDC duties. One of the best Spyderco knives and one of the best knife designs at any price; any serious knife user should have one in their collection of blades.

Wow this is an awesome blade!
Wow this is an awesome blade! I've wanted the para 2 for quite some time but finally pulled the trigger an got one. I'm mad I didn't get it 2 years ago when I first was interested in one. First thing that hit me was just how good it felt in the hand( medium paws) second just how lite it is. I haven't used it yet but there's no way my Levi's will have any blade but my para 2 for the foreseeable future. An I can't say enough Knifecenter! You did it again, I literally placed my order for this knife yesterday(Friday) at 9:30 am, standard shipping was free cause cost of order. An 28 hours later I was shocked when I opened my mailbox an saw that glorious orange box! You can't find that kind of service anywhere else! Thanks Knifecenter an spyderco for the fantastic product an unbelievable customer service! Your the only blade site I go to an tell friends an family to go to.
