SP81GPCMO2: C81GPCMO2 Paramilitary 2 Digital Camo

Available here at the KnifeCenter is the Digital Camo G10 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 satin blade, everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and user comfort.

Legacy EDC
This has been in my EDC rotation for 1 little over a year. It has been used for standard mail/cardboard/package opening (likely one of the most frequent EDC task for most folks), wood prep, and cutting rope. As a backpacker/camper what an excellent blade for all around use. A couple notable great things; 1. S30v steel. This has become a favorite steel of mine. Great edge retention, not horrible for sharpening, and excellent rust resistance. The razor edge stays a long time and the working edge for even longer. I have 6 or 7 knives with this steel and it hasn't let me down. 2. Compression lock. One of my favorite lock types. Rock solid and easy to actuate. Right up there with Benchmade's Axis lock. 3. Design. Coupled with the other mentions, this is what makes the blade a "legacy edc." Blade is long enough for about anything you could need to do. The handle fills the hand nicely. Thumb ramp with great jimping lets you get your thumb right where you want it. The choil allows for choking up on the blade for finer work or you can just grip it on the handle for a great feel. If I could have only 1 knife, this would be a serious contender for me. I would like to pick up another with a different color and steel to try. You won't be disappointed.

Great Spyderco Product
This is my second Spyderco product that I've ordered and it will probably not be the last either. The G10 scales are far more grippy than that of some of their other folders, like the Tenacious. They work wonderfully! I have very large, usually sweaty hands and I can comfortably wrap all of my fingers around the handle. I have no reason to worry that the knife will slip out of my hands. The blade material is great and cuts like butter. The jimping is great on the back of the blade. It was made in the US which was a personal plus for me. My only complaint with this knife is the inset liner lock. I have no issues with the actual design of the lock, other than it feels cheap to me compared to other Spyderco products I've felt and seen. So far there is no blade play, but I'm nervous that it may become a problem over time. It may not ever become an issue, just something I'd like to point out. It's still a fantastic knife! Knife center has great customer service and shipped the knife under four days! I plan to continue using this knife in my EDC rotation. Wish I could give 4.75 stars.
