Description

The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 has entered a new era with a re-engineered, solid copper handle! This collectible Blade HQ exclusive folder will naturally acquire a unique patina and with its super-premium CPM-REX 45 steel blade, it's a veritable titan of a knife!

This limited edition model marks the first time Spyderco has used all-metal handle construction for the PM2. The solid copper handle features internal milling to reduce weight and, with the exception of the stainless steel compression lock tab, the scales have no liners. No aftermarket accessory can offer that!


The Paramilitary 2 is one of the most popular knives on the market today, and it makes total sense. Great materials, comfortable ergonomics, reliable build quality, attractive aesthetics, and easy one-hand use all contribute to the astonishing popularity of the PM2. This icon of the knife industry has found its way into pockets of soldiers, builders, hunters, survivalists, and EDCers the world over. Any knife enthusiast worth his salt needs a PM2 in his or her collection.

Be sure to check out our Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Review to see how amazing this knife really is!

I EDC a Para-2 and own several configurations including a couple with OEM G10 scales and a couple with customized scales. I had to try to get this special version of this iconic knife! Luckily, I did!

Top-notch fit and finish! As expected with new Para-2’s, it was a little stiff out of the box. I loosened the pivot screw ever so slightly – smooth as butter with a satisfying “CLICK” of the compression lock afterward. The compression lock operates flawlessly out of the box. Blade looks to be perfectly centered. Although still very sharp out of the box, several high grit stones and lapping films or emulsions would give the CPM45 a mirror polish that would no doubt keep a very good edge. Standard Para-2 pocket clip and could use a little tweaking for my taste. Although I bought this strictly for my collection, most will probably agree it could be a little heavy for EDC. It is after all 7.5 ounces which is double the weight of an OEM Para 2 with G10 scales and S30V steel. That wouldn’t stop me from carrying it since it feels very good in my hand. Handle bias is normal for this much copper and no blade changes…other than the more dense CPM45. My only wish is for a “special” pocket clip to further commemorate this “special” Para-2 version...but that's just me being nit-picky. Other than that, I think Spyderco hit it out of the park with this Para-2 version.
