The Para-Military 2 knife features a number of improvements over the original. Its 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 and confidence inspiring Compression Lock on the handle spine. Lastly, the size of the lanyard hole has been generously increased, giving the use 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 Para-Military knife has a premium full flat ground S35VN blade with a plain edge. The handle scales are earth brown G10 for impressive strength and grip. Sprint-Run, limited quantities.

Great knife and service
Bob H.
Just got my knife so I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I have a Digi camo Para 2 with S30V that is superb and I know this one will be even better if that's possible. Great service from Blade HQ and USPS.
finally I get my hands on the brown one
matt c.
I didn't order from BHQ because I didn't know you guys had them, I got my from a retailer the day before BHQ had them, anyway, this is a great knife in a great color and tougher steel.
A+ blade
Matt R.
Really love this knife. The earth brown G10 is very nice. The steel is awesome. Excellent purchase
Great Knife
Ryan W.
This knife definitely deserves the praise which is often bestowed upon it. Its one of the greats! Everything about it is quality and I adore the brown G10.
Greatness expected
Gerald N.
What is there not to like about a PM2, smooth action, very comfortable to use and who doesn't love the compression lock. It is a very nice knife and the S35VN works awesome.
Awesome EDC!!!
Aaron G.
I love everything about this knife except for the pocket clip. I just wish Spyderco would put a deep carry clip on these knives. This thing came extremely sharp out the box. Awesome job Spyderco!!
One of the best EDC options ever
Kyle G.
The Paramilitary 2 by Spyderco is one of the best EDCs ever. The slimness of the design, along with the awesome compression lock, make this blade easy to carry and open for use. I love the S35VN and the tan scales. I can't decide which lock I like better between Spyderco's compression lock and Benchmade's AXIS.
making a great knife better
john k.
the para 2 is already a stellar edc and utility knife but adding the brown g10 and s35vn blade steel just aps the ante that much more. as always blade shipped the knife quick and on time.
First spyderco but not last
Keith m.
This was my first spyderco purchase and I have to say it wont be my last. Out of the box it was very sharp and the finish is superb. Engraving is absolutely perfect. The fit was pretty good though the centering is quite off. It doesn't rub or affect performance at all though. The pivot was pretty tight when I first flipped it but after a day of opening and closing it has broken in very nicely. I wasn't really sure about the compression lock at first but after a few days I've come to really like it. I think the blurple s110v is next!
Very nice
Brett N.
My first 'real' knife was a full serrated Spyderco Endura in the late 1990s. I still have it and it serves as a backup in my truck to this day.

This PM2 is my first modern Spyderco, bought for EDC. I am moving off a Benchmade HK Axis, so I'll compare. The Benchmade Axis lock is the best in the industry in my opinion, so the PM2 compression lock is a bit of a downgrade in that regard, but not by much. Flip open using the thumbhole is a tad less easy than a stud, but easy to get over. Closing with the compression lock is ok, but not as graceful to close as an Axis lock.

The Benchmade was in D2, which held a good edge and was easy to sharpen, but was never razor-razor sharp. The PM2 in S35VN was sharper out of the box than even my other S30V knives. The flat grind on this PM2 and blade profile make it narrow to a scalpel-like tip - extremely sharp, but possibly at the expense of strength if you were doing things with it you shouldn't with a knife.

Fit and finish it is exceptional. It has a fine instrument-level of machining that I've not seen on anything else.

Brown scales? Love it.

All in all, this is a great knife and well worth the money.
Decent out of box
Nick J.
Knife came extremely sharp out of box, with good fit and finish. Only complaints I have is there was a little bit of side to side play and the screws were literally falling out of this knife. 5 minutes and a bit of blue loctite and my issues were solved. For a $160 knife, I would rather not have those issues but they don't take away from this being a perfect knife. This is my 3rd PM2 and I doubt it'll be my last.
Best PM2
Tyler M.
The out of the box experience with this knife was utterly stunning. I own quite a few knives and to be honest it's the best fit and finish I've ever seen. Regardless if you have PM2s already or this is your first dive in you need get this because you will not be disappointed in any way shape or form. As in the great words of my boy Shai, "JUST DO IT!"
Excellent PM2!!!
Jason L.
I own several PM2's and this is by far my favorite. The brown is a great color and the S35VN blade is absolutely one of the best overall steels around. It's easy to sharpen and will hold an edge for a long time with normal use. I touch the blade up on a Spyderco Sharpmaker and it's ready to go. I highly recommend this knife if you have other PM2's or you just always wanted to try one. You won't regret it!
Brown Skin
Robert D.
I have a lot of really great (expensive) knives that have been left in the dust by the Para-Military 2

This knife's ergonomics and cutting power are second to none...the size and weight are perfect,
The Spydie hole and compression lock are a work of genius that makes the very sharp blade smooth and easy to use one handed.

I liked the Earth Brown when I bought it and it's still my favorite color.

One of my favorite edc's.
Richard K.
I have quite a few "nice" e.d.c.'s. And this is one of my favorites. I know everyone has there own opinion on what a edc should be, cost, weight, color, ect. It goes on and on. For me I want something I can depend on, feels good in the hand, can be left hand carry as i am left handed and have a "super steel" if you can call it that so it stays shape in the field longer. The paramilitary 2 does all that. This one with the upgraded steel and dark brown g-10 is well worth the little extra. Can't wait for the next sprint run paramilitary 2. Rumor is sometime in 6/16.
It really is that good!

There is a reason so many ppl love this knife. The fit and finish is excellent. It's razor sharp out of the box. It's very light and easy to pocket carry. True one hand opening and closing. No blade play. It's made in America. I knew my first Para would be great. Didn't expect perfection. This is my second Para. I love it and love Spyderco. I have over 50 knives but I carry a Para 2 every single day. There is a HUGE difference between quality and affordability. Do yourself a favor if you don't have one....get one.
Perfect EDC.
Dan G.
This is another great knife from Spyderco. As always razor sharp out of the box. Outstanding fit and finish and the milk chocolate G10 scales are beautiful. Yes, you pay a little more for this version but it is a Sprint Run and you get written verification from the factory with this knife. BHQs customer service is unbeatable!
My First Spyderco!
Craig D.
I've been watching the Paramilitary for a while and finally pulled the trigger on this version.

What a great blade, definitely worth the money!
All I wanted for Christmas
fly g.
I have been looking for this knife for a long time and I never thought I'd find it anywhere again since they have been all sold out. But never fear Blade HQ is here, you guys made my holiday by bringing this masterpiece back for another chance to get it. I can't thank you enough for this, another thing is the price. I'm very happy about how fast the package came also you guys have top notch service, so I am so thankful for this knife, Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all.
Kaleb M.
I have owned 2 other PM2 knives in the past and sadly I lost one and had to sell the other. This is by far one of my favorites, the color of the g-10 is perfect it blends nicely with all my clothing and the added benefit of a upgraded steel is fantastic. I got so carried away on how sharp it is I practically shaved my whole upper thigh Just to so i can see it cut.

Now besides the fun in the knife it works beautifully I work in a warehouse and i can't imagine a day without this in my pocket. Don't pass it up pick one up today like right now, after you finish reading this sentence.

Dont hesitate. Its actually 'that' good! Great service too by BHQ! 100% satisfied
