SP81GP2: C81GP2 ParaMilitary2

Why change something if it works? Because we practice the principle of C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. If we can improve it, refine it, upgrade ergos or enhance cutting performance, we do it. Our Para-Military2 has several changes. We’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. We 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.

Excellent EDC/moderate use work knife
Excellent EDC/moderate use work knife. I use it for daily tasks as a heavy equipment technician. The knife is very light in your hand, and has excellent grip with the G10 scales, even when wet or oily. Blade shape and grind are fantastic, with S30V to back it up. The compression lock is quite functional, and slightly addicting. It is essentially a liner lock, but on the opposite side(top) of the blade. It allows you to easily open and close the knife with one hand, without changing the position of the knife. The cut out is large enough to unlock the blade with gloves on. The jimping on the spine and forward choil are excellent for control. I considered this model over the full military because it has a four way reversible clip(although it's still on the list), and is slightly more EDC friendly. It is slightly large in the pocket as the handle is quite thick, but makes up for it in weight. I would be hesitant to pry or chisel with this blade(I know that's not what it's meant for, it happens), the FFG produced a very fine tip which is great for piercing and cutting. The handle is also quite large for the size of the blade, but I have large hands and it helps cut down on fatigue when using the knife for extended periods, especially with gloves on. No blade play, perfect centering, excellent deployment and lock up. One of my favourites.
