Which is the Best EDC – the Paramilitary 2 or Griptilian?

Nothing drives a knifemaker like a little competition, which is why great knife brands like Benchmade and Spyderco thrive off of a good-natured rivalry. They are constantly pushing themselves to create the greatest knives by using premium knife materials and the top knife manufacturing processes available, all so they can edge out the rest to take home the crown for the best knife. Two specific knife models have reached the apex of that goal: Spyderco’s Paramilitary 2 and Benchmade’s Griptilian.

While they may not have identical price tags, we chose the Griptilian and the Paramilitary 2 because they’re both American-made knives, the same general size, intended for similar tasks, and equipped with comparable locking mechanisms. Speaking of great knife locks

 

 

 

 

The Griptilian comes equipped with an AXIS locking mechanism. The lockbar extends through the frame of the knife and is completely ambidextrous, and it allows easy one-handed operation.

The Last of Spyderco’s Discontinued Knives

We’ve had a few whirlwind weeks since Spyderco announced their annual list of discontinued knives, and we’ve got only a few models left that will never be produced again. These (now super collectible) knives have been severely discounted, so check out the last of what we have to offer before they’re all gone for good!

 

 

 

Spyderco Chaparral Folding Knife 2.79” CTS-XHP Blade, Blue Stepped Titanium Handles

 

 

This model is one of three Chaparral folders we have left, and this one is particularly eye-catching because of the unique blue handles. After a complex initial machining process, the stepped titanium scales are color anodized to give them a brilliant blue hue, and then they’re machined again to make the alternating layers that create the unique pattern.

KnifeCenter’s Review: Spyderco’s Earth Brown G10 Para 3

 

Spyderco’s new limited edition Para 3 sports S35VN blade steel and earth brown G10 handle scales. This premium steel gives you a great combination of edge retention, durability, and corrosion resistance. The scales are lightly textured and offer a secure grip in the hand without adding bulk and the earth brown color is easy on the eyes, which pairs well with the satin finish on the blade and metallic pocket clip. Check out the full review on Spyderco’s latest limited edition run in the video!

The Best New Pocket Knives of 2018

We may only be a little more than halfway through 2018, but we’ve been wowed by the number of incredible knives that have made their way onto the scene this year. We’ve picked what we think are the best pocket knives (so far) of 2018.  These are definitely must-have additions to any EDC rotation.

 

Spyderco C227GP Brad Southard Hanan

 

A gracious gift, indeed! If you haven’t been brushing up on your Hebrew lately, that’s what Hanan means – and it pretty much describes this folding knife to a T. Designed by custom knife maker Brad Southard, the Hanan is one of the best gentleman’s folding knives to hit the market this year. Unlike most Spyderco knives, the Trademark Round Hole is much smaller than you’ll typically see, which is because this Spydiehole is mostly aesthetic. Instead, you’re going to rely on the flipper tab to deploy the blade. In our opinion, a gentleman’s pocket knife has to have certain qualities to make it worthy of the title – and the Hanan delivers that in spades. The two-tone G10/titanium hybrid handles are smooth and have an elegance that screams ‘class’. Plus, you can’t go wrong with S30V steel.

Why we picked it: Brad Southard is an amazing knife maker and designer, and his collaborations with Spyderco are no exception. This knife combines great design with high-end materials.

Two of Spyderco’s Best Folding Knives Get a Makeover

The Endura and Delica, two of Spyderco’s most popular folding pocket knives, got a serious glow up with these new FRN Zome Camo handles. Zome is an ancient Japanese art form that focuses on dyeing textiles using dyes from plants, flowers, fruit, and other natural sources. Take a look at KnifeCenter’s review where we dive into what makes these handles so unique!

The Five Best Spyderco Knives

We’re celebrating 40 years of Spyderco! In honor of their ruby anniversary, we’re going through the five best Spyderco knives.

The Para 3

 

 

The Para 3 is arguably one of the best production knives ever created. With its distinctive design and comfortable ergonomics, it feels as good as it looks – as evidenced by the finger choil that provides comfort and control when cutting. The Para 3 comes in a few different steels, but it comes standard with an S30V. The Para 3 also features Spyderco’s Compression Lock, which is considered by many to be one of the best locking mechanisms on the market. A 4-position pocket clip allows any user to carry the knife in a way that feels natural to them. One thing that would be nice to see from Spyderco moving forward for this knife would be a wider variety of steels.

 

The Endura 4

This Endura 4 is a KnifeCenter Exclusive with an HAP40/SUS410 blade and Mahogany Pakkawood handles. 

 

The first thing that stands out about the Endura 4 is that it’s a larger folding knife at a really good price. The Endura 4 rocks a large VG-10 steel blade and offers some jimping both on and behind the thumb ramp for added control and grip. It has Spyderco’s back lock that offers a solid and secure blade when deployed. The Endura 4 also comes in a variety of colors to fit your personality. The FRN handle is next to indestructible, but if that’s not your style we offer an exclusive Endura 4 in Pakkawood which gives a nice classic modern mix up to this well-loved design.

 

The Delica

This genuine mother of pearl handle is a beautiful addition to the Delica’s design.

 

The Delica is one of Spyderco’s best-selling models and has been around for over 20 years. What we feel makes this knife so legendary is its ability to offer so much without being a huge knife. Even though it’s not the biggest knife, because of its refined ergonomics it offers you a sturdy, precision cutting tool that can stand toe-to-toe with larger knives. The Delica, like the Endura, comes in a wide array of colors – there are even a few versions with handle materials such as abalone and mother of pearl. Of course, we also have the Pakkawood handle model that can only be found here at KnifeCenter.

 

The Yojimbo 2

 

The Yojimbo 2 is a newer model from Spyderco. It was designed by noted personal-defense trainer Michael Janich to be the perfect self-defense tool. The thing that catches your eye right off the bat is the large Wharncliffe blade. The straight blade transfers power all the way to the tip and ensures improved point strength. The Yojimbo was made with some of the best knife handle material available – S30V, S90V, and CPM-20CV. The handles are either G10 or carbon fiber. When closed the Yojimbo 2 sits comfortably in the pocket, but can be deployed quickly. Finally, this knife comes with Spyderco’s Compression Lock, the last piece to turn this into both a functional and effective high-performance tool.

 

The Manix

 

The Manix is one of the top EDC knives we have found. It is well-balanced between size and functionality and is available in a wide variety of some of the best steels on Earth. Like the Para 3, the Manix also has a finger choil for added control and comfort when cutting. The Manix also has a good amount of jimping for added grip, especially on the thumb ramp. One thing that Spyderco has definitely tried to do is to make a Manix for everyone. They have changed the steel, color, and even the handle material in an effort to give you the best knife possible. They even offer a lightweight model for those that are not fans of the larger, heavier knives. The patented ball bearing lock puts the finishing touch on this already great design, giving you a very solid lock that is perfect for one hand operation.

 

There you have it – five incredible knives from one of the best knife companies in the business. The best part is – you can get every single one from KnifeCenter, the original and largest online catalog of cutlery.
