Available here at the KnifeCenter is the all black Paramilitary 2 folding combat knife. Why change something if it works? Because, at Spyderco, they practice the principle of C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. If they can refine and improve the ergonomics or cutting performance of an established model, they do it.

The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 tactical folding knife has several changes over the classic version. The G-10 handle is narrowed at the end improving the ergonomics. The handle and blade have been profiled thinner; removing uncomfortable angles when in the closed position. It features a Compression Lock and an ambidextrous-friendly four way clip which carries tip-up/tip-down, left/right-hand and rests deeper in a pocket. They kept the same high-performance CPM-S30V full flat-ground blade but they’ve also lengthened the blade’s tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil. Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. Larger lanyard gives more options for carry.

Refinements to overall construction may not be drastic or even visible to the eye but from the G-10 textured handle to the CPM-S30V steel full flat black blade, everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and user comfort.

First Spyderco, great purchase!
This is my first Spyderco but I had done quite a bit of research before purchasing. I liked the idea of the compression lock and now having used it I like it even more. One handed opening and closing is really easy. The knife was razor-sharp when it came and the full flat grind and thin tip makes it great for slicing and piercing. The pocket clip seems like it’s robust and the finish (on the clip) seems to be better than some others out there. The G-10 scales at first impression made it feel cheap to me but that was simply because of the light weight as I am used to steel and titanium handles on Kershaw’s and ZT’s. The is pretty light for its size and the G-10 has a pretty good texture to it making it a good work knife less likely to be dropped. I use this knife at my job at work cutting plastic shrink wrap mostly, and a whole lot of stuff around the house as I am a DIY’er. It has a large lanyard whole which I plan on putting some Para cord through later, you could easily double up on 550 cord through the whole. I did have to flip the pocket clip after I got it because when trying to pull the knife from my pocket while sitting the gimping on the spine was catching my pocket and I had to twist the knife to get it out, so I switched it to be carried tip-up. I would recommend this knife to anyone. Also one last note, Knife Center was great! I had given them the incorrect address and I got an e mail from them telling me that, I e mailed them back my correct address and within 30 minutes I got an e mail saying my knife had shipped!
