Description

Description

Spyderco knives introduces the Para-Military 2. This next generation Spyderco Para-Military knife features a number of inspiring changes. The revised handle has a thinner profile at the end to improve the ergonomics and the ambidextrous four-way reversible pocket clip rests deeper in the pocket as well. The blade has an elongated profile, with an increased cutting edge, finger choil and thumb ramp. Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. The Para-Military still has the solid, confidence inspiring Compression Lock on the handle spine. Lastly, the size of the lanyard hole has been generously increased, giving the user more carry options. This all results in more than just change for the sake of change, it's a real improvement on an already great knife.

This Paramilitary 2 knife has a premium CPM-S30V flat ground blade with a plain cutting edge. The handle scales are textured G-10 for impressive strength and grip.

This knife gets a lot of love, and deservedly so. Once you get past the seemingly too long handle, you'll see just how well designed this knife is. The handle is super grippy and ergonomic. At 3.75 ounces the weight is just about perfect as well, it's light, but it's got enough heft that it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy. The action is flawless, even out of the box it is very smooth and doesn't need any oil or pivot adjustment. I love the nice solid *click* that it makes when the blade is deployed as well. If you like liner locks, then you'll love the compression lock and the fact that your hand is out of the path of the blade when closing it. It's also razor sharp out of the box, and with the s30v steel it will be a while before it needs to be sharpened. My only complaint is the pocket clip, it rides about 1/2 inch outside of my pocket, so I had to cough up 25 bucks for the MXG deep carry, but that's just a matter of preference.

I bought this knife and absolutely loved it. Beauty and performance all in one piece. I unfortunately had to use this knife for protection as someone attempted to rob me. I was hit in the head with a stick by an attempting robber. One stick to his gut with this blade put an end to his attempted robbery. He was wearing a hoodie and the point of this blade went right through. He was arrested as he passed out in the middle of the street and the cops apprehended him. he will be doing a few years in prison. I win MF.

This is my first Spyderco knife, and it has more than lived up to its online hype. Iím not a hardcore bushcraft person, nor former military. I just enjoy having equipment that works wether at work, or out camping. This knife is very well made and I foresee many years of use.

As a very classic knife and a standard among edc blades, I was very excited to get this. I have had it for about seven months and it is now inferior to many of my other knives. First, without almost any hard use, I have constantly been having to adjust the pivot to correct blade centering and fix blade play. It has been been increasingly more frequent. The action is getting sticky, The detent is extremely weak and can barley hold the knife closed. Also I was expecting for the S30V steel to hold a edge longer than it did. Overall, its a good edition to my collection, but did not meet my expectations.
Perfect.

I just recieved this today. Knife fit and finish was absolutely perfect. I thought it would be a little stiff out of the box, but no. It has a perfect lockup, no play vertically or horizontally and drops shut at the push of the lock. Excellent value of the money, reccommend

This knife was everything I thought it would be. Since there is an abundance of fake/clone spyderco knifes everywhere I could not take the chance and had to purchase it from BladHQ. Something that for me is a guarantee for authenticity and great value. Just a few days ago I searched locally for spyderco knifes and I held a few in my hand in the store and there was just something not quite right with them. When I got this knife you definitely can feel itís the real thing, fit and finish and ďfeelĒ is something else. Thank you for providing a great product.

Itís a best seller knife so I really shouldnít have to sell anyone on this knife. Unless youíre new to knives Iím sure youíve at the very least held a Paramilitary 2. The compression lock will have you opening and closing this knife for hours. The only thing I suggest is getting a deep pocket carry clip and this will be one of the best production knives in your collection.

The Paramilitary 2 is a bestseller for a reason. It has great action, a good blade shape for utility cutting, and great ergonomics. The handle is comfortable for delicate cutting, but also in a saber grip for making larger cuts. My only gripe with this knife is that it's a little larger in pocket than I would prefer, but other than that it is ideal for everyday carry, work, or anything else you use a knife for.

I bought the PM2 after reading a bevy of 'best EDC' type reviews, and was not disappointed. I have only 2 real issues.

1 - The tip, while surgical and excellent for fine work and piercing, is a bit easy to break. Mine snapped off after a bit of unfortunate (but necessary) prying. It's still pointy enough to get into anything I need it to, so I haven't sent it back to be redone (~$20).

2 - It's REALLY hard to justify buying other EDC knives after you've bought a PM2.

I suppose I don't like the silver clip that much either, kinda conspicuous, but I switched it with the black clip from and Endura 4.

Anyhow, it's hard not to echo all the praise already given to the PM2. The ergonomics are fantastic for cutting, stabbing, and slicing. The pointer finger to thumb lockup is really the best I've felt on any knife. The square'ish grip can wear a bit if the job requires extended twisting motions, whereas the fuller handle of, say, a Griptilian (or preferably a fixed bladed) handles extended chores better, but flat sides on the PM2 are great for pocket carry.

Deployment and closing are slick. The compression lock is second only to the Benchmade Axis lock for one-handed open/close in strength, but I find it just as fast.

It's been my primary carry for over 3 years. I should get the blade fixed but more likely I'll just get one in a different color config.

Not for fruit...

This knife is really good except for cutting fruit. Even when trying to split an apple it is not easy, maybe because of the blade thickness. Oh well, I guess I should use it for tougher stuff and see...

What more can be said that hasn't already been said about the PM2?

You can tell that every part of this knife was designed with a purpose, and there is a reason that it is so popular. I didn't understand the hype surrounding this knife until I actually held one, and then it all made sense.

It is built to handle pretty much anything you throw at it. It's effectively a tank of a knife, but it isn't so excessively overbuilt that it feels like you're carrying a brick in your pocket. The G10 handles are very grippy, and combined with the perfectly placed jimping and excellent ergonomics, this knife locks into your hand and is ready for serious cutting tasks.

My favorite part of the knife has to be the compression lock, though. Now that I've experienced it, I don't really care much for other locking mechanisms.

I have this bog standard black G10, satin S30V blade version, and it's worth every penny. I've been tempted to buy other versions with "better" steels, but I don't have any complaints with the S30V, so it's hard to justify buying more when this one is already so good.

This knife is fantastic. The blade shape is very well executed and is built to cut. The steel is also good and it holds an edge for a long time while also resisting rust. This is easily my favorite knife and it's American made.

This knife is easily one of the best EDC choices on the market. It's built like a tank, and is quick as lightning with the compression lock. It is fairly wide as pocket knives go, with the classic Spyderco leaf blade and opening hole, but it's decently thin and carries a hair deeper than something like a Benchmade Grip (large). One thing to note is that Spyderco has amended their warranty to allow disassembly and as such has ceased use of the Red Death threadlocker in knife production in favor of the white medium-strength stuff their Taichung plant has been using for a bit.

I have been carrying this knife for more than 4 years everyday, and I can't find another knife to replace it. It has awesome ergonomics. The finger choil is the best feature, and I need it in most of my knives for the delicate work. The blade length is not too long, nor is it too short, perfect for me. Fit and finish - 10+
Highly recomended. Still searching for a better knife but only time will tell.

I love everything about this knife, I can't say one negative thing about it. I usually buy a couple of knives a year and will carry one until I purchase the next. This one has been in my pocket for a year and a half. I still love and research knives, a lot, youtube, written reviews etc., almost daily, but I'm less interested in buying knives just to have new one. This one so far has been the perfect EDC.
Great!

This is a good quality knife and it's just as important what company to buy your knife from. Buy it from Amazon and there's good chance you end up with a fake knife. BHQ is an awesome company and I'll buy from them from now on.

I was on the fence about spyderco. I had heard good things but I didn't really care for the look of them. After staring at the paramilitary 2 for awhile I decided to give it a try because of how good it was said to function. I'm glad I did because I love it. I'm a carpenter and use a knife everyday, on top of having a compulsion to buy them. Came super sharp. Blade centered perfect. Flicks open and locks solid. I didn't know how I'd feel about the compression lock but it's rock solid. Bladehq continues to impress me with lighting fast shipping and just how professionally done their website is set up. Great company with great selection and prices. Thanks

This knife is fantastic so far I just got it today and man I'm already digging it. I know the black and satin is plain to a lot of people but it looks so good to me. The edge came out of box extremely sharp it's awesome I love it blade centering is perfect which is expected like I said I only got it a few hours ago but I'm sure it will live up to the paramilitary name of being a workhorse. I asked them to draw a picture of a bird holding a knife on the box as said by birdshot IV on YouTube mentioned and they actually did it which was pretty cool. And also it got here wicked fast. I got the free economy shipping which was 4-8 days and it got here in 4 I'm am really happy with my purchase. So much so I bought another 2 blades from this website right after I got this one. And I plan on buying a ton more from them in the future. I called their customer service line to ask a few questions about policy and such because I've never bought from them before and the person I talked to was very curious and helpful. Keep up the good work blade HQ

First, I'd like to start off by thanking BladeHQ for the great, prompt service I received. I ordered this knife on a Friday night around 7pm and it shipped out that very night and was in my mailbox Monday morning. This was just regular free shipping, so I was surprised and pleased that they immediately took care of my order and got it shipped several states over so fast.

The knife itself is wonderful. Razor, shaving sharp with a beautiful satin blade. Tight lockup with no play at all in any direction. I really like the compression lock and the ability it gives you to easily open and close the knife single handedly. The G-10 grips your hand perfectly. I agonized over choosing between this, a Manix 2, and a Benchmade Griptilian and am not disappointed at all with the choice I made!!
(Updated) Might need some time to grow on me

(Update: After about a week of using this knife exclusively, I've come to love it. Everything I say below is still true, but I think it has grown on me because of the weight, blade shape, and attention to detail (position of the opening Spyderhole is amazing, etc). I think it has replaced my Manix 2 and Benchmade 940-1501 as my EDC.)

The good:
The compression lock is absolutely astounding. I love it love it love it.
The weight is very very good for its size.
Blade shape is awesome, looks even better in person. This includes the Spyderco Spyderhole, which is the perfect size and position.
No blade play, at all, full stop.

The bad:
I've been spoiled by my Spyderco Manix 2. Look at the ergonomic grip and the jimping on that thing. It practically melts into your hand and then doesn't budge. The Paramilitary 2 has an uncomfortable bump in the handle right at the middle & ring fingers, making it uncomfortable to hold for very long. Then the jimping is ONLY on the thumb ramp and the blade half of the 50/50 finger choil on the bottom, none anywhere on the handle.

The Manix 2 is practically the same blade length, same/better blade material, and better feel in my hand. The Paramilitary has the blade shape, weight, and compression lock (did I mention that it's phenomenal?!) going for it.

This knife is hands down my first pick for a "go to" edc carry knife. I can personally tell you that if you are thinking about stepping up from your plain cheap pocket knife for a good quality blade...this is it. I have so many folders and pocket knives, but this one will become like your favorite t-shirt. I just cannot say enough. Buy it!!

I love the choil jimping and the larger round finger hole to open the blade. If you are spending over $100 on a knife, I promise that you will regret not owning this.

One note: I did add some Tri Flow for a smoother lock up.

Great knife... no issues what so ever... rock solid lockup in all directions from opening to closing. No issue with reversing the clip, seen that review and that particular knife might have been faulty or a user error(cross threading), idk but mines went in like glass with a I think t6 driver. I put a tad of oil on the pivot just because I do that to all new knives and it rockets open and drops close with no effort at all. Scales are real grippy but not over done... what else can I say threw a maverick workshop bead and lanyard on and called it a day... thanks blade hq. Love it...

This knife is awesome. It is made of quality materials, and is built well. It is lightweight, and feels great in my hand and in my pocket. The s30v steel is great at holding an edge, and resisting wear and corrosion. I carry this knife every day, and it hasn't failed at any task yet. And I love the compression lock. It's really strong. Great job Spyderco.

One of the screw holes for the tip up carry position on the pocket clip is the incorrect size, thus unusable. My particular knife cannot be carried in the right hand tip up position. Very disappointed this could happen on such a revered knife.
