Spyderco C81GPFGR2 PARA MILITARY 2 - 3.47" FFG CPM-S45VN Blade - Forest Green G-10 Handle - SPRINT RUN
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.
This Para Military 2 is their latest, and it's a Sprint Run.
The heart of each knife is it's blade, and this one features CPM-S45VN , which is a martensitic stainless steel specifically created to transcend its predecessors. Its carefully tuned chemistry promotes the formation of more chromium carbides, while leaving larger amounts of free chromium available for corrosion resistance. Together with a finely tuned formula of niobium, nitrogen, vanadium and carbon, its composition offers a superior balance of edge retention, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and toughness. All of these qualities are further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, which ensures an exceptionally homogenous grain structure.
In an effort to showcase this high-performance steel, Spyderco is producing limited-edition Sprint Runs of a select number of their US-made models with CPM-S45VN. This Para Military 2 also features forest-green G-10 scales and an exclusive CNC-machined Diamond Arc™ pattern that gives them a visually stunning non-slip texture.
