Why change something if it works? Because, at Spyderco, we practice the primary of C.Q.I. – Constant Quality Improvement. If we will refine and reinforce 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 maintain is narrowed on the end bettering the ergonomics. The maintain and blade have been profiled thinner; getting rid of 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 we’ve also lengthened the blade’s 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 is probably not drastic or even visible to the eye but from the G-10 textured maintain to the CPM-S30V steel full flat blade, the whole lot is sharper, smoother and guaranteed to offer performance and user comfort.
