At Spyderco, they practice C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement.  This is a process where they constantly refine the manufacturing, designs and materials used in making their knives.  They also frequently release limited production runs called Sprint Runs.  Combining the two, Spyderco announces the release of a Sprint Run C81CFPE2 Para Military2 with a peel-ply carbon fiber handle and a composite CPM-S90V/ CPM 154 steel blade.

Spyderco is the first production company to use this unique and very exotic, composite blade steel from Crucible Industries of New York.  The manufacturing process is in itself unique.  It begins with a 1-inch thick plate of CPM S90V.  The plate is placed in a specially engineered and built steel can and the voided areas on either side of the plate are filled with CPM 154 powder.  The can is positioned on a vibratory table to ensure consistent density in the packing of the powder and then it is welded shut and subjected to a vacuum to evacuate any oxygen.  The can then enters an autoclave under extreme heat and pressure where the powder forge-welds with the plate.  Afterwards, the can is machined off; the remaining slab is cogged-down in a roller into flattened sheets suitable for making knife blades.  Where many layered steels are produced by heating plates and then sandwiching the steels together, this process uses specialized equipment and welding techniques commonly featured in the manufacture of aircraft parts where steels are held to rigorous specifications to avoid structural failure.

The blade is ground full-flat and additional surface jimping is machined on both the spine and the forefinger choil.  A line marks the juncture where the two composite steels meet, giving each blade its own unique pattern that is the result of the homogeneous transition of two extraordinary modern powdered metals.

Paired with the rich-feeling peel ply carbon fiber handle scales, the model offers fine-tuned ergonomics with both an oversized lanyard hole and an enlarged Spyderco opening hole.  It features Spyderco's patented Compression Lock that is further complemented with an ambidextrous- four way clip that carries tip-up/tip-down, left/right-hand with the folder settled deeply in a pocket.

Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A., the Para Military2 composite steel/carbon fiber Sprint Run is limited in number and available for a short window of time.  Congratulations on owning one!
