Plus it looks like it has one of those closers where you have to reach into the handle to depress the latch to close. I really like the closing latch on the back spine of the handle. I have a stainless Police model, but it is too big and bulky, and I don't like the stainless (catches people's eyes when I'm talking to them - I'd rather they not notice the knife. Don't want them thinking they can grab it to use against me).
The Paramilitary 2 has the closing latch on the spine, but it does require a lateral squeezing motion to disengage the lock tab. At no time will you need to place your fingers under the blade to close a Paramilitary 2. It is a strong, safe, and convenient lock, but it will take a little adjustment on the part of the user to get used to it.
