C81GPODFDE2 RIVER'S EDGE CUTLERY PARA MILITARY™ 2

A.K.A. the RECPM2

 

We wanted to do something different with the awesome Para series from Spyderco, So we started with the Para 3. Our REC Para 3 was released in August of 2018. We were actually worried if the color combo would be accepted in the community, but to our surprise, it blew up... big. We sold out of the REC Para 3 in minutes and they now go on the secondary market for almost 4 times the amount of what they were new! Not a week goes by that we don't get an email, call or message asking for one. We are now following it up with the ever popular Para Military 2!!

The Color Combo 

We are all outdoors men here at REC and wanted to create an "Earthy Tone" look, but not be the generic camo that is on so many knives these days. We went with an Olive Drab G10 Handle, Black Hardware and clip. We chose CTS 204P because we are big fans of the steel here and we love the fact that the knife will be 100% American made with American steel. 204P is the kind of steel that retains an amazing edge and can be brought back to "hair popping sharp" with just routine maintenance. Unless the edge is badly damaged, there should not be much actual sharpening. It is classified as a Stainless Steel, so will be corrosion resistant to the Elements. I think this will be a great EDC, with a unique look.

What is PVD ??

Physical vapor deposition (PVD) describes a variety of vacuum deposition methods which can be used to produce thin films and coatings. PVD is characterized by a process in which the material goes from a condensed phase to a vapor phase and then back to a thin film condensed phase. PVD is an environmentally friendly vacuum coating process with no hazardous by products resulting brilliant decorative finishes with excellent wear and corrosion resistance. 

About the Para Military 2 

The Para Military 2 has several changes over the classic version. The G-10 handle is narrowed at the end improving the ergonomics. The handle and blade have been profile 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. 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.

The most distinctive feature of this Para Military™ 2 is its blade, which is crafted from CPM® 10V®, the very first member of Crucible's family of high-vanadium tool steels to be made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. CPM 10V's finely tuned vanadium content provides exceptional wear resistance while maintaining toughness and machining characteristics comparable to D2 and M2.

Often used as a replacement for carbide in demanding tooling applications, it is also a favorite material of performance-oriented custom knifemakers, most notably Spyderco collaborator Phil Wilson. The blade of this elite knife optimizes CPM 10V's remarkable properties with a full-flat grind and a PlainEdge™ cutting edge for outstanding edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. To help protect the tool steel blade and eliminate reflection in tactical environments, it also features a rich, black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating.

Not to be outdone, the handle of this Para Military 2 proudly features coyote brown G-10 scales and a four-position pocket clip that offers a choice of left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. The scales are peel-ply textured for a non-slip grip and painstakingly machined to house nested stainless steel liners that form the foundation of the knife's high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism. To complement the blade finish, the clip and all handle hardware also feature non-reflective black coatings.

A little more about CPM-10V from the Crucible Website:

 

CPM 10V is a unique tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is designed with a tough, air hardening base analysis with added high carbon and vanadium for exceptionally good wear resistance, toughness and strength for cold and warm work tooling applications.
    The exceptional wear resistance and good toughness of CPM 10V make it an excellent candidate to replace carbide and other highly wear resistant materials in cold work tooling applications, particularly where tool toughness is a problem or where cost effectiveness can be demonstrated.

Chris Reeve Knives / REC Spartan Sebenza 

Debuted at Blade Show 2019, we did 5 Large Drop Point & 5 Large Insingo with our exclusive Spartan CAD Design. On the Front , there is a Large Spartan helmet split down the middle, on the rear "MOLON LABE" (Ancient: mo-lone lah-beh); (Modern: mo-lone lah-veh) (Greek: ΜOΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ or μολὼν λαβέ) means "Come and take" The phrase was the defiant response of King Leonidas I of Sparta to Xerxes I of Persia when Xerxes demanded that the Greeks lay down their arms and surrender.

Also, a Small Spartan helmet was added onto the Clip just that extra little touch. 

We sold out of all 10 of these very fast ,but plan to do another run. The next run will be on the Sebenza 31, which CRK is not taking order for until Mid 2020. So it will be a while! 

 

If you are interested in one, please contact us and we will add you to the waitlist for the next run ! As always, thank you for your interest!

About the Para 3

The Para 3 takes all the proven features and benefits of Spyderco’s best-selling Para Military™2 and distills them into an even more compact all-purpose cutting tool. Its three-inch blade is precision machined from premium CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features a full-flat grind for a superior balance of strength, point utility, and low-friction cutting performance. It includes a textured index-finger choil and thumb ramp that provide a solid purchase for a forward grip and offer enhanced control during precise cutting tasks. The blade’s signature Trademark Round Hole™ clearly brands it as a member of the Spyderco family and is fully accessible to allow quick, positive, one-handed opening with either hand.

To keep the Para 3 slim and pocket friendly, it features a lightweight, open-backed construction style and its stainless steel liners are nested into machined recesses in the textured G-10 scales. This reduces the handle thickness and provides excellent structural support for the knife’s patented Compression Lock™. Located in the spine of the handle, this high-strength mechanism locks the blade securely open during use, yet allows it to be closed easily and safely with only one hand. A four-position hourglass clip and an over sized lined lanyard hole complete the design, offering ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.

Ounce for once one of the most capable folding knives ever made, the Para 3 is destined to be a classic.
