I purchased this knife to be my ďdress up, go to townĒ knife because it is thin, easy to open and is sharp. I love the way it deploys and fits my hand. It does not disappoint.
Great knife!

I have been a Spyderco fan for a long time but have never really stepped up to the premium knives. Sure glad I finally made the leap. What a knife! Razor sharp, love the G-10 and the compression lock is amazing. There quite obviously is a very good reason everyone recommends this the Para 2.

This is the first Spyderco knife I have ever owned. Up until now I always thought that the blade shapes were weird and was just unsure about all of them.After many videos watched and posts read about how nice these knives were I took the plunge. This is the first $100+ knife I have every carried daily and dear God I was missing so much.The fit and function, and overall quality the extra money fetches for these knives is incredible. This purchase has set the hook for me on high quality knives and I will continue to expand my collection.
This is it

I knew that the PM2 was popular and I knew it was good but I never realized what I was missing until I finally got one.
The deployment is incredibly smooth, drop free yet still has zero blade play. I don't know how this is possible on washers but they did it.
The knife is extremely sharp from the factory and the thin edge is easy to doctor up after even hard use.
Additionally, despite it's large size, it is misleadingly lightweight. Also fits in the hand perfectly with the G10 texturing being just right, not too course nor smooth.
For me, this isn't so much of an EDC knife because of it's size, but for most it would suit the bill perfectly.
One knife to rule them all

About a year ago, I chose the PM2 (flat dark earth scales, silver S35VN blade) as my everyday carry. This knife has been stellar. After a year of use, itís easy for me to say if I were forced to choose only one knife for the rest of time, this would be it. The PM2 fits my hand perfectly, and is surprisingly lightweight for a knife of this size. The blade is stellar. S35VN is fantastic steel, and after a year of use, it finally needs sharpened, The blade shape is versatile, and the iconic Spyderco hole makes it easy to deploy.

The PM2 is built like a tank. This is a VERY tough knife. The open design makes it less likely to fill with dirt or lint, and contributes to the light weight. Even with my cell phone in the same pocket, it sits comfortably off to the side. Because itís quite flat, it feels like itís taking up less room than some smaller, rounder knives.

The only think Iím not thrilled about is that the dye from my jeans has rubbed off onto the scales over time, making them look a little dirty.

This isnít the prettiest knife I own. Itís not the most expensive knife I own. But itís the best knife I own.
Wow!

Not sure why I resisted getting a Spyderco for so long....this knife is beautiful. Crazy sharp right out of the box...only other knife I have this sharp out of the box is my Hogue Sig auto. Smooth opening and compression lock is great. My new favorite EDC.
Beautiful knife!

This is my first Spyderco and I love it! It's razor sharp, has a smooth action, and the compression lock is awesome! It carries very good for a knife of this size and fits perfect in the hand. The color combo of the black DLC blade and dark earth scales is my favorite. Just a great all around knife.
Smooth action and good looks

If you like a knife that's high end but without too much flash this is probably the one. Right out of the box it is razor sharp and cut through paper, boxes and zip ties with ease.

The compression lock is probably my favorite mechanism so far and after a few cycles it is reliable to deploy and put away one handed. It does take a little bit of muscle training to get used to the "spydie flick" but once down I really don't miss my spring assisted Kershaws.

The handle is a little rough on your clothes but the tradeoff is you have an amazing grip whether bare handed or with gloves.
Perfect EDC

Third para 2, these are great. the compression lock is silky smooth, ergonomics on the pm2 are ideal for my purposes. Steel will perform sufficiently if intended for EDC, very sharp indeed. blade lockup is tight, knife itself looks sick awesome color combo

Im glad Spyderco put the dark earth g10 with the S35VN DLC blade. Its an amazing knife. Razor sharp out of the box no blade play either way solid lock up and I love the grip on this g10 none of my other knives have the feel this one has. I'm definitely glad I got one. Ive had it for months now and its still razor sharp and solid as a tank.

This is by far the sweetest looking PM2 I have ever seen. The color combo is spot on. My new favorite. Also the PM2 in my opinion is the all around best model of knife.

This is the best all around knife for EDC, SHTF, The Apocalypse, Box Cutting, Doomsday, End of the World, Envelope Opener, Rapture, Zombies, Camping, Hiking, Fishing, Hunting or pretty much any scenario life throws at you a PM2 can handle it no problem. All in all this knife is absolutely superb it's what you'd expect from a PM2.

I have been waiting for a DLC S35VN PM2 as a working knife for quite a while. S30V is great but the small upgrade to S35VN is well worth it to me for a knife I plan to keep for a long time! Fit and finish is amazing on this knife. I was not a fan of the brown G-10 and intended to swap the scales out, until I got the blade in the mail. The brown G-10 is a pleasant change and actually is very nice in contrast with the black blade and hardware. Would definitely buy again!
If you're on the fence, buy it!

This is my 6th Spyderco knife, my 4th compression lock knife and my 2nd Paramilitary 2, so I know what to expect. However, this is my first knife with a DLC coated blade. It looks even better in person than in the photos - the brown G10 is more like flat dark earth. Tactical, but classy. I just got it two days ago and the blade already swings freely after some slight tinkering. I don't put my knives through anything that could be considered hard use, but I feel like I could trust this knife with my life.

You cannot go wrong with a Paramilitary 2, especially not when it's made with CPM S35VN.
