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.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
When I bought my first pm2 a couple years ago, I did not think the knive could get any better. I was wrong! This version is simply amazing. The upgraded steel is phenomenally sharp and the indigo scales are interestingly attractive. The only thing I found odd was that it arrived with the pocket clip in tip down configuration. Of course, that is personal preference and easily remedied so it does not affect my opinion of the knife. Well done, spyderco!

Solid & beautiful
This color is awesome! Changes depending on the light. Knife is sharp & the steel is very strong. Construction is so solid, no blade play whatsoever. Lockup makes a very satisfying 'clack' sound. Buy this knife you will not regret it.

A barely acceptable purchase (at its best). almost returned
Was stoked to finally own a pm2, but this one slipped past quality control -EXTREMELY sticky compression lock. Found it it was because one of the stop pin screws was loose. Tightened it and most of it is gone, but it's still present. -some fit and finish issues: Gimping alignment. Where the tang meets the stop pin has some pretty uneven/ bad machine marks. One side of the blade is finished rather poorly. -EXTREMELY poor and inconsistent action. Jerky. Sometimes will flip, sometimes wont. stiff. Can't get it to drop free the same way I've seen so many rave about. It's often a struggle just to flick it closed with your wrist even when releasing the compression lock. -Whoever ground the relief edge took off WAY too much steel. Visibly evident, and measured against a ruler confirms it lost some length to this. The knife already has such a poor blade to handle ratio, I would prefer to preserve as much life in the blade as possible. -a close look will show some spot rusting on the relief edge. -I tried opening the knife to see if I could clean and re-oil the pivot. While taking apart the body screws, I realized spyderco used red loc tite. The depth of where a bit fits into the screw head is too shallow and is angled in a way that almost makes it seem they are designed to strip so spyderco will know if you tried to take it apart. That said, I did strip one screw, and decided not to take the knife apart unless I really need to. but now I'm left with this awful action that just dropping some oil into the pivot won't fix. -pocket clip is bulkier/sticks out more than it needs to and leaves a big ergonomic "hot spot" -Color is much darker and not as blue as some stock images and videos would lead you to think. Not an issue so much as something to note. Disappointing purchase for $150 Spyderco, but such is life.
