As one of Spyderco's most popular and in-demand models, the Para Military™ 2 is a natural platform for Exclusive projects—special configurations of established models produced exclusively for a single wholesale customer or distributor. This elite expression of this best-selling design features a full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ or CombinationEdge™ blade machined from 52100 tool steel. Best known as the steel used for ball bearings, 52100 was traditionally used only by bladesmiths who could hand forge it. Now available in flat stock suitable for factory production, this classic knifemaking steel provides exceptional wear resistance and edge holding qualities. As a non-stainless steel, however, it must be maintained properly to avoid corrosion.
The handle of this Exclusive knife features stunning peel-ply-textured solid carbon fiber scales. Sturdy stainless steel liners nested within CNC-machined scales ensure excellent structural strength, while keeping 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 fobs or lanyards and ensures that this breathtaking Para Military 2 Exclusive is always poised and ready when you are.
