Spyderco Para Military 2 C81GPDBL2 - CPM-S110V Blade - Midnight Blue G-10 Handle
We've all heard the expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, at Spyderco it doesn't quite work that way as they are constantly improving their products. It's so much a part of their corporate culture that they've coined a term for it: C.Q.I., which is an acronym for "Constant Quality Improvement. If Spyderco can refine or improve on the ergonomics of a design, or a way to get more cutting performance from one of their knives, change it they do!
The last major "overhaul" of the Para Military pattern was back in 2010. At that time they narrowed the profile of the handle, making it more comfortable in the hand as well as the pocket.
This elite version of the Para Military 2 supercharges its advanced design with a full-flat-ground blade crafted from Crucible’s CPM® S110V—a state-of-the-art stainless tool steel produced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process. CPM S110V’s high volume of vanadium and niobium alloys give it exceptional wear resistance, while its enhanced chromium content makes it extremely corrosion resistant.
Like all Spyderco knives with CPM S110V blades, the textured G-10 handle scales of this version of the Para Military 2 sport a distinctive dark blue color. They are also home to a four-position hourglass clip that supports left and right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry.
The results is a Para Military 2 that's made with pride in their Golden, Colorado factory.
