This elite version of the Paramilitary 2 showcases a blade crafted from Crucible Industries’ CPM CRU-WEAR. An air-hardening tool steel, CRU-WEAR was designed as an upgrade to D2. Capitalising on CPM CRU-WEAR’s exceptional qualities, the PlainEdge blade of the “Cru-Carta” Paramilitary 2 is full-flat ground and beautifully satin finished for exceptional edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It also includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The other defining feature of this elite knife is its handle, which features brown canvas Micarta scales supported by full skeletonised stainless steel liners. Like other Paramilitary 2s, this knife’s liners form the foundation of its high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and anchor its fully configurable four-position pocket clip, but they are not nested into the scales. Instead, they support the full surface area of the slim Micarta scales on both sides of the handle. The two halves of the handle are joined by stainless steel standoffs to create a lightweight, easily cleaned, open-backed construction. In keeping with the tradition of this design, this knife also includes a generously sized lined lanyard hole for easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.

Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Micarta CRUWEAR - The CRUCARTA PM2


CPM-CruWear Tool Steel’s alloy composition features less carbon and chromium than D2, but more vanadium and tungsten. This finely tuned balancing of elements promotes the formation of more vanadium carbides in CRU-WEAR, giving it enhanced wear resistance. At the same time, its lower carbon content reduces its overall carbide volume, making it tougher than D2. Despite the reduced carbon content, CRU-WEAR also has a higher attainable hardness than D2 (up to HRC 65), thanks to the secondary hardening response created by the tungsten and molybdenum in its alloy mix. CRU-WEAR also tempers at a higher temperature range than D2 (900-1050°F versus 400-600°F), so it is more compatible with nitriding, PVD coating, and similar surface treatments. It readily retains its hardness after these processes, making it a more suitable substrate than D2.
