SP81GP2: C81GP2 Paramilitary 2
Originally designed to condense the defining features of Spyderco's Military Model into a more compact format, the Paramilitary took the knife world by storm. Its second-generation version, the Paramilitary 2, reigns as one of the most popular folding knife designs ever created and continues to inspire an expanding family of variations. The lean, open-backed design, nested stainless steel liners, and high-strength Compression Lock mechanism of this highly evolved folder complement a full-flat-ground blade, an oversized Trademark Round Hole, and a four-position clip. Together, the synergy of these elements yields a truly exemplary cutting tool that has had a profound impact on modern knife design.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
This is ridiculous. All around just perfect. I was a bit skeptical at first since I usually carry cold steels and it's like walking around with a dumbbell in your pocket, this weighs next to nothing. Extremely light, extremely sharp, amazing handle. I played with the damn thing for hours. That spyder hole flick open is so satisfying. Easily opened and closed with one hand. I had a surplus of cardboard boxes so I went ham on those. Maintained edge throughout. The only negative is how raw my fingers were from flicking it back and forth so much. That sounds wrong. But the opening and closing is just so satisfying. Most expensive knife I've purchased yet I believe. I want to get into higher end now. This is definitely a great step to it. If you're thinking about it, stop, get it, believe me this thing is worth it, idec if it came with surgical steel as long as I could still flick it open. I had the sharpmaker for a while and always wanted to get one of their knives because I was satisfied with the results of that as well. Definitely a great company, besides the whole warranty thing.

Very pleased.
I have been wanting a Paramilitary 2 for a while now and finally purchased one and could not be more pleased. It is everything that I could have expected and more. I work in the aviation paint/refinishing field so I cut lots of random stuff and this has yet to let me down. It came shaving sharp out of the box and the action was/is very smooth from the get go. Personally this knife is the perfect EDC knife, it is not too large nor too small and fits perfectly in my hands, also it is a perfect weight and thickness. I could not recommend this knife enough to someone looking to buy as a user blade. Being a compression lock it is perfect for one handed opening and closing and has a very strong lock up that I feel very confident in trusting. The G-10 scales provide excellent grip even if your hands are damp, the PM2 came out of the box with perfect blade centering and zero play when opened in full lock. Like I said before I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for a good user.

Paramilitary 2
Awesome performance, gotta love the compression lock. Nice thin Blade profile for slicing. I prep my dinner with my PM2 and use it for just about everything at work from cutting down boxes to making stakes for the ground to map out projects, only thing I am super careful about is the tip, love how it comes to a splinter picking tip but as long as you use as intended for should be no worries A++ in my book!
