Spyderco Paramilitary – C81


Model Name: Paramilitary
Model Reference: C81
Designer: Sal Glesser
MSRP: $199.95
Description: The Spyderco Paramilitary was introduced as a smaller version of the Military with the benefit of a stronger Compression lock, that makes the price of the knife on par with the full-sized Military, even though it is smaller. The Paramilityary was redesigned in 2010 and renamed to the Para-Military2. The handle has been narrowed, and the blade profile streamlined to be more sleak. Lanyard hole was enlarged and new bushing pivot system has been employed.
