SP81GPBK2: C81GPBK2 ParaMilitary2 Black
Why change something if it works? Because Spyderco practices the principle of C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. If they can improve a knife by refining and upgrading the ergos or enhancing cutting performance, they do it.
The Spyderco Para-Military2 has several changes. The handle has been narrowed for improved the ergonomics. The (closed) blade profile is more streamlined, eliminating any angles to catch or rub in a pocket. Ambidextrously friendly four-way clip carries tip-up/tip-down, left/righthand and rides lower in the pocket. Spyderco lengthened the blade's tip and added more surface jimping. A larger lanyard hole for a broader variety of attachment options. Implementation of the Spyderco Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. The blade has been upgraded with a high performance CPM-S30V steel full-flat ground blade with a lengthened blade tip and additional surface jimping on both the spine and finger choil. The Spyderco jimping is just plain awesome when it comes to giving you a rock-solid grip and control of the blade and the lockup of the Spyderco Compression Lock is solid and convenient. A larger fluted lanyard hole provides more carry options.
Overall, refinements to the 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 black blade, everything is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to provide performance and user comfort.
Oso Grande was insanely fast with their customer service responses AND notified me that the shipping price was changing rather than just charging me. They gave me the option to decide how to handle it. No one does that anymore! And it was a person, not an automated system. Best. Ever.
