Detailed Description

Para-Military 2

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.
Their 2010 Para-Military 2 has several changes over the classic version. 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 high-performance CPM-S30V full flat-ground blade but they've also lengthened the blade's tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil. Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. Larger lanyard gives more options for carry. Refinements to overall construction may not be drastic or even visible to the eye but from the G-10 textured handle to the CPM-S30V steel full flat blade, everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and user comfort.

A hard-to-beat EDC at this price point

The Para 2 is hands-down one of the best production knives on the market. It's large enough to handle most regular EDC tasks but still rides comfortably in the pocket. The G-10 scales, 4-way deep pocket clip, and FFG S30V blade make this knife a top-shelf winner. Both it and the Cutlery Shoppe are HIGHLY recommended. As a repeat customer I've always found Jeff great to work with.
Great Knife, Great Company, Great seller.

This has to be one of the best knives Spyderco has produced (and I own a few). Lightweight & feels very durable. And as you may have seen, this knife is difficult to find at this point and Cutlery Shoppe has one of the cheapest prices. So, don't be afraid to buy one even if it's on backorder because Jeff will take care of you when they come in. When they are in stock, you get them PDQ. And for those who are first visiting this site, it's one of the best on the net when it comes to selection, price, & customer service. So shop with confidence.
