The blade of this elite knife is crafted from CPM® 20CV—a highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel. This state-of-the-art material is unique in that it contains a high volume of vanadium carbides and the highest amount of chromium of any vanadium-rich stainless steel currently available. This potent combination of elements gives it a remarkable combination of high wear resistance, superior corrosion resistance, good impact toughness, and excellent polishability. These properties are further enhanced by the powder metallurgy process, which ensures uniform distribution of the alloys throughout the steel and a very fine grain size. To eliminate reflection in environments where light discipline is a concern, this knife's blade also features a stealthy black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
Equally unique, the handle of this Para Military 2 showcases tan G-10 scales with a peel-ply texture for a secure, non-slip grip. Skeletonized stainless steel liners nested within those scales provide structure for the knife's patented Compression Lock™ mechanism, which offers extreme strength and safe, convenient, one-handed operation. To complement its DLC-coated blade, the handle's four-position pocket clip and all other hardware also feature a low-profile black finish.
