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.

the perfect knife
got the PM2 S110V as my grail knife and its exactly that. its an incredible hard use workhorse rather than a show pony. i was unsure of the Blurple when i ordered it, but have since fell in love with the color and just ordered a blurple Manix2. if you like mirror edges and overly sharp steel, this is not the knife for you, s110v works better with a slightly lower grit stone (600-800) for a more toothy edge to cut most efficiently.polishing to a mirrored edge will actually reduce the efficiency and edge retention properties. if you want a knife for heavy duty cutting with little maintenance, the S110V is perfect.

excellent edc folder
very well made knife. smooth action, and can easily be opened and closed with one hand. the edge is perfect and very sharp from the factory. i've read and was told by other knife folks more knowledgeable than myself that the steel (s110v) has excellent edge retention. to get a steel with better edge retention i'm told that you'd need to go with a non-stainless. i haven't used it enough yet to know for myself. the blade also seems thicker than a lot of other blades of the same length. even though it's pretty lightweight, this is definitely a hard use knife. no doubt about that, and you'll realize it the first time you hold it. the handle (aka; scales) is surprisingly ergonomic and the material is very grippy. feels perfect in the hand. from my understanding, s110v steel can be a little challenging to sharpen. i haven't had to resharpen it yet, but i've gotten pretty decent at sharpening over the years, so we'll see. something to think about if you don't have much experience sharpening knives. i believe Spyderco will resharpen their knives for free, if the customer pays shipping. the only complaint i have is i wish the pm2 came with a deep carry pocket clip. however, there are deep carry clips available from sources other than Spyderco made specifically for pm2's. depending on where you live, the blade may seem a little intimidating to some people around you when you flick it open. the pm3 might be less intimidating, since the blade is shorter. other than that, imo the pm2 is a perfect everyday carry knife.

Can't go wrong with KnifeCenter!
Outstanding knife, sadly I had to return it due to an unforeseen situation. Knife Center's customer service was top notch and worked with me on a seem less return. I had my money back in no time at all. I will only deal with Knife Center for my blade needs!!
