Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive Para 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.
This Para 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. This Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive version
features a premium CTS-XHP full flat-ground blade, which is given a black DLC (Diamond Like Coating) finish.
Spyderco has 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 CTS-XHP steel full flat blade, everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide
performance and user comfort. This limited edition of 1,200 pieces is made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A exclusively for
Cutlery Shoppe customers.

First they took the perfect knife. Then they gave it the best steel ever. Then they gave it the best blade coating DLC, hardware Black, and Scales Orange. This is the most awesome knife and I wish I had money to order backups of it! 5/5 PS: Priority Shipping was the free shipping option. Thank you so much!

The legendary Para Military II is already a top EDC; Cutlery Shoppe went beyond the extra mile with this exclusive. The fit & finish is outstanding and has a truly exclusive look, the black coated DLC blade on the orange G10 is a perfect match, do not forget the high quality CTS-XHP Carpenter steel which makes this a total winner. A must have for collectors or everyday users. I enjoy mine, thanks Cutlery Shoppe.
