ParaMilitary2 - Carbon Fiber / PlainEdge
As one of Spyderco’s most popular and in-demand models, the Paramilitary 2 is a natural platform for Exclusive and Limited Edition projects. This remarkable expression of it features a full-flat-ground PlainEdge blade machined from 52100 tool steel. Best known as the steel used for ball bearings, 52100 was traditionally only used by bladesmiths who hand forge it. Now available in flat stock suitable for factory production, this classic knifemaking steel provides exceptional wear resistance and edge holding qualities; however, as a non-stainless steel must be maintained properly to avoid corrosion.
Not to be outdone, the handle of this Limited Edition knife features stunning peel-ply-textured solid carbon fiber scales. Sturdy stainless steel liners nested within CNC-machined scales ensure excellent structural strength, yet keep the knife slim and lightweight. They also provide excellent support for its patented Compression Lock mechanism—a high-strength, extremely user-friendly lock that allows safe and easy one-handed operation. To ensure convenient carry and instant access, the handle includes a four-position clip that supports right or left-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. A lined lanyard hole also allows the easy attachment of gobs or lanyards and ensures that this breathtaking Limited Edition Paramilitary 2 is always poised and ready when you are.
