SP81GPCW2: C81GPCW2 Paramilitary 2 Smooth G10, KnifeCenter Exclusive

This unique expression of the Paramilitary 2 is exclusively at the KnifeCenter and offers one of Spyderco's most popular models in a distinctive and highly collectible format. 

The defining feature of this elite Paramilitary 2 is its blade, which is precision machined from CPM-CruWear—an air-hardening tool steel specially formulated to offer both superior wear resistance and toughness. Created by Crucible Industries, CruWear's unique alloy composition allows it to excel in applications that require greater wear resistance than D2, more toughness than M2 high-speed steel, or both. The CruWear used in the blade of this knife is further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which ensures an ultra-fine, highly homogeneous grain structure that maximizes the performance potential of the steel. In a knife blade, that translates to amazing toughness and the ability to take and hold an outstanding edge.

Proudly featuring a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening, the PlainEdge blade of this knife is full-flat ground and satin finished for superior edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It is housed in a handle constructed with nested stainless steel liners and smooth black G10 scales. The liners form the foundation of the knife's high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and provide a solid anchor for its four-position hourglass pocket clip, which supports left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.

Showcasing a high-performance blade steel and a distinctive handle material, this Exclusive version of the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is destined to become a highly prized collector's item. KnifeCenter Exclusive Limited Run of 1,200 pieces.

Best sprint/exclusive I own
I own mostly Spyderco Sprint run knives in s90v, m4, 52100, m390-20cv-204p, and have to say cruwear is my favorite non stainless steel. This pm2 has the highest fit and finish with the smoothest action in my collection. Mine came out of the box buttery smooth and razor sharp. I'm actually thinking about finding a spare cruwear pm2 with smooth g10 just in case something happens to this one. But I will admit the smooth g10 may not be for everyone, it took some getting used to.
