Spyderco’s Paramilitary 2 offers a burst of blue and purple for those looking for tactical folder that’s a little less tactical looking.
The Paramilitary 2 tactical folding knife has several changes over the classic version, according to Knifecenter.com. The blue/purple G10 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.
It retains the same full flat-ground blade shape but they've also lengthened the blade's tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil.
Implementation of an updated Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. A larger lanyard hole also gives you more options for carry.
The Paramilitary 2 features a 3-7/16 inch CPM-S110V stainless tool steel blade and weighs in at 3.75 ounces. The Paramilitary 2 retails at Knifecenter.com for about $150.
