Why change something if it works?  Because, at Spyderco, we practice the principle of C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement.  If we can refine and improve the ergonomics or cutting performance of an established model, we do it.

Our 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 profile 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.  We kept the same high-performance CPM S30V full flat-ground blade but we'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.

Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A.

Features

  • Compression Lock - A lock mechanism that uses a leaf-like spring from a split liner in the handle to wedge laterally between a ramp on the blade tang and the stop pin (or anvil pin). Developed and patented by Spyderco, it provides extreme lock strength and ease of use.
  • CPM S30V - A premium grade knife steel.  Corrosion resistant and extra tough for long lasting sharpness.
  • Full Flat-Ground Blade - A blade ground with flat bevels that extend from the spine all the way to the cutting edge. This grind reduces drag during cutting and decreases overall weight.
