SP81GPBN2: C81GPBN2 Paramilitary 2 Earth Brown G10 with S35VN Steel

Available here at the KnifeCenter is the Paramilitary 2 folding combat knife in Earth Brown G10 handles and Crucible Industries S35VN steel (C81GPBN2)! 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, we do it.

Crucible Industries’ S35VN steel substitutes niobium carbides for some of the vanadium in their popular S30V steel. They estimate this steel to be 15-20% tougher than S30V without any loss of wear resistance—it’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. This steel has gained rapid popularity with both custom knifemakers and the steel aficionados who make up a good chunk of your customers.

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 full flat-ground blade but we’ve also lengthened the blade’s tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil. Implementation of a Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. Larger lanyard gives more options for carry.

The Paramilitary 2 has a huge following among both collectors and users who demand top performance. Many collectors and users already own several versions of this US-made classic and they’re all going to want this one!

Refinements to overall construction may not be drastic or even visible to the eye but everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and user comfort.

Ergos are just fantastic
Wow, the feel in the hand of this knife is just great, not that heavy for its size, ergos are just perfect and even though it is a big knife is not that difficult to carry, also the comp lock is great. A bit on the sticky side on the lock but I hope that will wear out.

Perfect EDC folding knife!
Having lost my PM2 in S30V a couple months ago, I decided to purchase another as my other knives just were not cutting it. No pun intended. I loved the S30V steel of my original and the upgraded S35VN on this version just made sense. It came from Knifecenter razor sharp and perfectly centered. The fit and finish is perfect as well. Very happy with my purchase. I just hope I dont lose this one as its even nicer than my first.
