SP81GP2: C81GP2 ParaMilitary2

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.

Fun knife
I've had mine for 5 days and it's very fun to play with and use however, the steel could be better. There's already 2 small chips/dents in my blade just from normal usage. One of them even happened while it was in my pocket. For the money, I was pretty disappointed with the quality. I will say though that the machine tolerances are very impressive. If You have money to blow and you're wanting a cool coffee table knife for opening the mail, this is definitely it. If you're wanting a solid edc, there are lots if better options for half the price...

Best folding knife I have ever owned
This has become my EDC knife! It is my first "good" keeper knife. By that I mean a while back I bought a Benchmade 477 Emissary but I just didn't like the aluminum handles. It was a great knife but my personal preferences made the knife the wrong one for me and I sold it. After doing more research I decided to buy the Spyderco ParaMilitary 2 and I couldn't be happier. I actually like it more I hoped I would! I definitely wanted the S30V blade and this one came razor sharp. A friend of mine who is a knife guru of sorts played around with my knife and said the action is smoother than his Benchmade. I really like the G10 handles. They are light, strong, and they fit my hand perfectly. I've read some reviews saying this knife is good for carrying in jeans but is too big for EDC in the office, but I carry it every day wearing dress pants. I clip it on my pocket and it rides perfectly all day. I carried my old knife tip-up because it sat lower in my pocket. Because this one sits slightly higher I found that carrying it tip-down gets it positioned in my hand more quickly. This is the second $100+ knife that I have bought but it the first one that I kept. This knife will be my EDC knife for a long, long time.
