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.

Perfection at Last
I have been,"carrying" pocket knives for over 50 years, (Yes young people, Even in school!) and this Paramilitary 2 is the closest knife to perfection for EDC. No compromises have been made in any area of construction, material and blade steel. Tight, Centered, light, with a blade that is perfect for everyday chores and defense without looking scary to the dumb public. There is a little learning curve to get used to the lock, but within a few minutes the fingers know what to do instinctively. Knife Center delivered it sooner than expected, which was excellent. It is indeed worth the money to have this great a knife at your side.

light and sharp
This knife is a very nice carry type knife I use the pocket clip. Hardly know I am carrying it. Very light. Feels great in my hand, and very sharp. The blade moves smoothly. When other people see it they are impressed

Great Knife
I've been wondering for a couple years why this knife is so popular and so hard to get. I finally decided to pull the trigger and get one. I saw Knife Center had them in stock so I immediately fired off my order. In fact, I did it so fast I forgot to add on my freebies code, so don't do that. I opened the box and got it in hand. Okay. Now I get it. This is a quality built knife. I wear XL size gloves and I can pretty much get full purchase on the handle. My pinkie finger does ride up on the rear hump but it is still a comfy grip. The surface finish on the G10 gives more traction than that on the Tenacious but won't tear up your pocket like that on the Cold Steel Recon 1. The handle is about a half inch longer than the Tenacious and they weigh about the same. So they carry about the same. My big ol' fingers also like the oversize Spydie hole. I don't really have any problem with the standard size hole on my other Spyderco's but the oversize hole is noticeably easier to use. The knife arrived adequately sharp but I did touch it up to get it to hair popping sharpness. Nothing I've cut yet has even challenged the blade. I doubt in my EDC utility that I will ever put the knife through the stress it was designed to handle but it's great to know the capability is there if I ever do need it. I hate that I can only give it a 5. It's a Hall of Fame knife.
