ParaMilitary2 - Earth Brown G-10 / CPM-S35VN / W-DLC
When Spyderco introduced the Military Model years ago it gathered fans like the Pied Piper. Critics claimed it too big, too expensive and more knife than the average user needed. Likewise, fans heralded the knife’s big performance attributes and snapped them up, firmly positioning the Military Model as one of Spyderco’s top all-time sellers. Carrying a large folder for many is simply a non-issue. For others in our sensitive PC world, smaller equates to friendlier, less shocking, and in some place just plain legal. Arriving back at the question knifemakers ask everyday, “How do we satisfy both worlds and make a smaller knife that acts, cuts and performs like a large knife?” Welcome the Para-Military, a two-thirds sized version of the Military Model. Its flat-ground S30V blade stretches a non-eyebrow raising length; just over 3″. The Spyderco Round Hole is generously sized at 14mm for opening the knife blade with gloved (or large) hands. Its G-10 handle shuns chemicals and temperature fluctuations and expands at the butt-end keeping the hand from slipping off the handle while making hard pulling cuts. The package is topped off with a nested Compression Lock making the ultimate mid-sized survival knife designed to level trees, carve tent stakes and never generate a second glance.
The C81GPBN2 is a variation on that standard, limited in number and availability. It’s a classic Para-Military with a high-end twist. It has a Earth Brown G-10 handle and Crucible Steel’s CPM-S35VN exotic alloy blade.
