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-Military2 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.  We kept the same high-performance CPM-S30V full flat-ground blade but weve also lengthened the blades 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.

After owning this knife for some time now I am still quite pleased. It has accompanied me to Africa where it was used mercilessly. I have used it to everything from food prep to detailed carving. You will be hard pressed to find a negative review anywhere on any forum. The tremendous demand for these knives is well deserved, it is a terrific knife that I believe every knife enthusiast should own.

I had, like many of you, heard of the favorable reviews of this knife and decided to give it a try. I am simply astonished by the craftsmanship and strict manufacturing tolerances put into this knife. I have heard of sticky locks and wiggly blades but mine came to me with perfect centering and smooth action. It takes surprisingly little force to open the blade.I have since (I've carried this knife for a couple of months) taken the factory edge of but it came to me so sharp i could have performed coronary surgery. overall 5 out of 5. DON'T HESITATE GET THE KNIFE.
Excellent EDC

Got this recently on a whim, and I'm most pleased with it. The refinements (won't go too far, since space is limited) from the original are outstanding. I still love my big knives, but for the lightweight frame, the slightly lengthened blade at the tip, and the refined ergos, it acts like a big knife. I still like the original, but I like this one even more. Edge holding is fanstastic as always (in a world of "Alphabet Soup" among the latest and greatest super steels that is LOL. I can't keep up with that stuff like I used to...just so many out there now). But Spyderco's recipe for s30v has always been good, and this is no exception. It's handled all my EDC chores with ease, and I haven't had to sharpen it yet. Opened mail, sliced the skin off of some chicken, and also busted up some boxes. All I've had to do is strop a few times. Compression lock is rock solid, and zero blade play. As with most of Spyderco's offerings, it's a little knife that acts big. If you're on the fence about getting one, do yourself a favor, and get one. You won't be sorry. One last thing of note. There's no need to apply any lube to the pivot. It's smooth out the box anyhow opening and closing. I gave it a little lube when I got it, didn't make much difference. I gave it a quick bath, and dried it off completely. On a whim, I skipped the lube, and it's still as smooth as when I pulled it out of the box. Another great refinement. Hope it shows up on some future Spydie offerings
