Product Code: SPYC81GP2

Highly regarded as one of the most popular folder knives ever created, the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 slightly diminishes the exceptional performance and reliability of the Spyderco Military model into a more compact and pocket-friendly design. Each model features a premium stainless steel blade that is supported, this time, by Spyderco's patented Compression Lock™ mechanism--allowing users to safely close the blade with one hand without ever having the operating hand come near the cutting edge. Much like its larger predecessor, the Paramilitary 2 features a slightly flared base of the handle as well as the integrated jimping which provides increased control with any cutting job. This model, the C81GP2, features a black G-10 handle, a satin finished clip point style blade, Spyderco's trademark round hole opening feature and an ambidextrous 4-way positional pocket clip which allows for a tip up or tip down carry option on either side of the handle. Made in the USA.

My favorite EDC Knife hands down September 21, 2011
Reviewer: Zach Borts from Cincinnati, OH United States  
I picked this up specifically to be my new EDC knife, and it is doing the job very well.

It has the best ergonomics of any of my knives with very nice jimping and a nice finger choil for choking up on the blade.

The blade itself has a full flat grind of S30V that performs very well as a slicer in everyday tasks with a good belly.

The G10 slabs provide a very positive sturdy feel and give good traction.

The compression lock is super solid and easy to operate with one hand.

It has a four way pocket clip for carrying it any way you want.

It has a HUGE lanyard hole for anyone who likes 'em.

It also has nice open construction for easy cleaning.

The bad:
I had to polish the pivot hole on the blade because there was a burr digging into the bushings, but now it is smooth as silk. Honestly spyderco would have taken care of this for me with their great customer service but I chose to do it myself.

I would recommend it to anyone. Go buy one you wont regret it

Para Military 2 -- A Worthy Contender September 20, 2011
Reviewer: Steve from Milwaukee, WI United States  
I have several EDC knives that vie for pocket time - Benchmade, Kershaw, CRKT, and Spyderco.  Until recently, I regularly rotated my EDC knives, giving each one a week or two.

However, since purchasing my Para Military 2 six months ago, I am never without it.  This knife offers a near-perfect blend of beauty, function and durability.  First, this is great looking, American made knife with an outstanding pocket clip.  Out of the box, the CPM-S30V blade is shaving sharp, holds a keen edge, and is easy to touch up.  Blade deployment is quick and smooth.  At under four ounces, it’s truly a pleasure to carry.    

Finally, since I own plenty of multi-tools, pry bars, and screwdrivers, my knives usually don’t get abused.  However, the PM2 is not just another fancy letter opener.  She can be worked hard.  The Compression Lock system will likely take some getting used to, but it does provide strong, solid lockup for the toughest tasks.  

Para Military 2 -- You won’t regret it.
