SP81GPBK2: C81GPBK2 Paramilitary 2 Black

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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Excellent knife
I use it for simple tasks around the house and light/medium cutting and carving when hiking. Even chopping thick branches is possible, but not ideal because of the small blade. The handle is a bit sharp for my liking (compared to my 10+ year old Military), but not a big issue. Overall it's a perfect EDC.

Everyone is right!!!
I recently purchased this Paramilitary 2 from knifecenter. Best edc knife i have owned so far. All the talk about this spydrco was completely correct. The DLC blade seems to be holding up so far. After lubing pivot with Weapon Shield and playing with knife none stop for two days, it loosed up and is lightning fast. I would say, it has the perfect tension now. Love the oversized sypder hole as well. This knife now goes everywhere with me. I replaced the clip with a MXG titanium deep clip. My experience with Knife Center was equally good. Purchase Friday morning and received package Monday afternoon.

Cons: None
I received it 7 days ago today. And I was very happy as soon as I opened the box. The blade is fine hair shaving sharp. The spydie hole makes one hand opening a snap! And as far as snap goes the compression lock snaps firmly into place and is easy to get to without readjusting your grip to unlock and close. I got the all black doc coated blade. And I literally can't be any happier with a great all around knife that can hold its own in any given situation. It goes great with the matching Manix 2 I bought from knife center as well two months ago. Knife Center has been Joy to do business with. From answering prompt response to any emails I had or any questions I had about shipping. Definitely will be my go to store for any Cutlery needs in the future
