SP81GPDBL2: C81GPDBL2 Paramilitary 2
Available here at the KnifeCenter is the Paramilitary 2 blue/purple G10 folding combat knife featuring a CPM-S110V stainless steel blade. It's another excellent hard use everyday carry blade that's as collectible as any production knife out there.

Why change something if it works? 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 G10 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 full flat-ground blade shape but they've also lengthened the blade's tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil. Implementation of an updated Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. A larger lanyard hole gives you more options for carry and shows just how refined this knife is.

Great Choice
I bought this knife as a retirement gift for my father. My parents love to go camping and fishing. They'll soon be doing a lot more of both. I wanted to get him a camp tool that would see daily use while holding a nice working edge. I also wanted a blade steel that would be highly corrosion resistant. I am a little concerned about sharpening since he doesn't have anything to do it on. I have a set of diamond stones though. I guess that'll be my job.

Blue/Purple G10 PM 2 Review
This is my second purchase of the same knife. My first knife now has carbon fiber scales, so I purchased a second knife because of the G10. The CF scales are easy in the pocket and have the "Black Knife" look that I appreciate. But the Blue/Purple G10 is unique to the CPM S110V blade steel and is a bit grippier to handle. The color is also civilian friendly and has a nautical appearance. The PM2 is an awesome knife because of its design and utility regardless of the handle composition. You cannot find a better folding knife for the price here at the KnifeCenter.

Will take some getting used to
This is my first knife from spiderco so take it easy on me. My other knives open pretty quickly and reliably with one hand. The lack of a thumb stud will take some getting used to as this blade is somewhat tight and doesn't flick open. Feels very rugged and lightweight. It's perfect in my meaty paws and I do like thumb rest on the back of the blade if more leverage is needed. You can shave with this knife out of the box and the S110V steel won't need much sharpening if used properly. Closing the knife with one hand is difficult due to the location of the lock, it's as if it was intended to be closed with two hands which is Impractical in my line of work. This knife uses a liner style lock but as far as I'm concerned, they put it in the wrong place. Once it breaks in I've been told, I should be able to flick it open and closed with one hand. If this is true, this should be a handy work tool. For the price of a premium steel and solid knife, this is a bargain nonetheless.
