Description

Description

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 Para-Military 2 knife has a black DLC finished CPM-S30V stainless steel flat ground blade with a plain cutting edge. The handle scales are textured G-10 for impressive strength and grip. The hardware on this model is tactical black.

This knife works. I was considering other options and took at least 3 weeks to come to a decision and I landed on this knife. It was my first non budget folder. It came super sharp, very smooth opening and I was surprised by everything. The compression lock actually grew on me, it was weird at first because I grew up with frame locks and liners. I've used the knife every day since I've gotten it and the blade is still very sharp. The handle is super comfortable and the g10 is awesome, super grippy. It just fits the idea of an everyday use knife.

I've carried a lot of knives, and always come back to the PM2. Everything from size, weight, lock, and its smooth deployment is perfect. But by far the most fun is customizing them.
My current edc is this DLC pm2 I'm reviewing, only I've swapped over to brass scales and have a lanyard with. rash honeycomb bead.

The steel is good, corrosion resistant but will get spotty with abuse, especially the non dlc models. Just wipe with oil every week or 2, be sure its food grade if you use it with your dinner!
The lock is excelent, I love that it can be closed without having my fingers in the path of the blade.
The clip is the typical spyderco, not much to write about but looks good.

If you've never owned one, give it a go. You wont be disappointed, and If it's not quite perfect for you, they do hold resale value on the knife trade fb pages.
Just perfect

This isn't the most aesthetically pleasing knife, but from a practical standpoint it is perfect.

I'm a first responder, so I use this knife frequently for cutting airbags, clothing, zip ties, car parts, etc...

The S30V is heat treated exceptionally well and is a breeze to sharpen. The DLC coating helps with corrosion resistance, and the G10 is decently grippy.
Great everyday use knife

if you're thinking about it just do it. I used to think spyderco was so over hyped... I would walk through the blade show in atlanta every year and see the crowded sypderco booth and think "why does everyone love those ugly knives." then one day I had a change of heart and bought a tenacious. I liked it so much that i came on blade hq and bought the pm2 the next pay check. Now i carry it every day. The pm2 is one of the most solid knives you can buy with great blade steel variety. If your new to the knife world you definitely need to add this one to your collection. if your already a collector chances are you already have one.

I worked in the Live Music Industry for 8 years. This knife was the toughest thing in my pocket. It cut through anything I put I front of it! Paracord, excessive gaff tape, cardboard, planstic, you name it and it was in 2 pieces!

I have personally had two of this same knife. The first one I had an issue where my detent ball fell out of it's holding. Probably from me playing with it too much. Anyway I sent it into spyderco for a fix and they sent me a brand new one.

The reason I wanted the same knife back in working order is because it's a great knife for a person with large hands. Lot of handle room and g10 to grip on to when cutting. With or without using the forward choil the knife is easy to hold comfortably. The blade is simple in my opinion, just a long curved edge that leads to a needle point. Steel isn't super fancy for the base S30v steel compared to what you can get these days.

S30v is still a great user steel, and with practice is pretty easy to sharpen with the right tools and technique. Also and if you have issues with finger mobility a thumbhole is helpful. I don't personally but my father does and he loves his sage 5. Speaking of which the compression lock is a cool lock which is strong enough to do what you want with a folding knife within limits. Sometimes I find where the compression lock cutout in the scale is, that it is a bit of a ergononic hotspot. The stock pocket clip is placed well enough for me at least where only the tail of the knife sticks out a bit.

So overall I would say if you're interested in a paramilitary 2 any variation is a good choice but I would recommend getting it in hand before purchasing if possible. I love mine, you might not since everyone is different. Also I purchased mine from bladehq so I'm a bit biased, but if you ask they'll check your knife beforehand and send you a good product. They'll take care of you.

Smooth action, great feel. This was my first sypderco. I feel comfortable when I have this in my pocket. My only gripe is that I wish I would have waited for the para 3 as my hands are a bit on the smaller side and I feel this blade is ever so slightly on the long side for me.

I had dreamed of buying this knife for years but didn't have the money so I suffered with the cheap Walmart knife. A year ago I finally purchased my first Spyderco, all black PM2 and I have nothing but absolutely loved it!! The way it sits in your pocket is so low profile and out of the way but sticks out just enough that it's so easy to pull out use and put back with ease. I originally purchased this life and thought how would I ever be able to be okay using such a beautiful knife and putting where and tear but it quickly becomes obvious that this knife was to good to keep clean and safe, I use this knife every day for food, boxes, concrete work, cutting plants and so much more. I sharpen this knife on my own and I am by no means a pro or anywhere close to it but with a little work I can get a good edge on this knife that lasts a long time with a good amount of use. Anyways if your considering a Spyderco PM2 I would say DO IT!! stop thinking about it and just do it you won't regret it.

When I got my first Para 2 I already owned several ZT's and other knives, but the Para 2 kicked them all out of my pocket and became one of my most carried knives if not my most carried. I liked it so much that after I sunk over $100 of custom parts and hours of work to pimp out my first one,I bought and pimped a second one. Great knives, great ergos, great action, great price. The only qualm I have is that darned lanyard hole, trying to take this knife apart to customize is definitely tried my patience, but if you don't take apart your knives then there's no reason not to buy.

The blade itself to me is a pretty big deal i prefer other shapes on mine but this blade is indeed a nice blade, the handle fits my hand perfectly and it feels very good to grab on.
Overall i would give it a 5 star though i'm not a big fan of the blade it's a really nice one anyway and it definitely is a must have to Spyderco fans.

As strange as it sounds, for a while I didn't give Spyderco much thought (I just didn't think they looked great). However, the first time I handled a Paramilitary 2 completely changed my mind! This PM 2 has been my almost daily carry for over 2 years now. The ergonomics are fantastic and I love how easy it is to open and close with one hand.

This is my 2nd Spyderco. My 1st was a cheap $40 Walmart knife and I hated it! But I thought Iíd give the brand another chance with a better knife, and Iím so glad I did! This is one of the best edcís for the money. It opens/closes very easily, itís lighter than I thought it would be, and itís probably the most pointy knife I own, and I own Many ZTs and a couple Griptilians. THIS knife is gonna see a lot of pocket time and Iím already thinking about getting another one. Iím truly shocked how much I like this knife, and bladehq service was top-notch like always!

So when I first saw spydercos on the net I didnít know what to think. They kinda looked weird to me but like a good fungus the style grew on me. I saw all the great reviews and decided I had to try one out. I bought a Tenacious because that was more in my initial price range. Loved it. I carried it everywhere with me and then I lost it while at work...

Fast forward 2 weeks and I was having serious Spydie withdrawals. I had a taste and I needed more. I needed a juicy blacked out Para 2 with S30V steel and super sexy G10 scales (that feel so good and grippy when you hold it.) The ergonomics are phenominal for my beefy hands. Some people complain that itís too big for EDC but the thing is so lightweight for its size that I just donít feel it on me until I need it.
The compression lock is great. The action is crisp, clean, smooth, and addicting to fiddle with.

If youíre coming back to this page as much as I was let me tell you: You want this, you need this, treat yo self. I know the knife says itís made on Earth but seriously itís out of this world.
Great knife!

I Wasnít planning on starting a collection with Spyderco knives, so when I first bought one, I wasnít sure if I wanted to get a Manix 2 or Paramilitary 2. I went with the Manix 2 as my first Spyderco. After carrying it for some weeks, I was really curious about the Paramilitary 2. I had to get one. I donít regret owning both at all. I love both of them. The Paramilitary 2 is way lighter and handles smoother in my opinion. Now Iím trying to get some other models they have. Keep up the good work Spyderco and Blade Hq!

The very modern looking Paramilitary 2 has become something of an old standard in the folding knife world. It's a great knife all around and there is little that I could add to what's already been said.

Spyderco's DLC finish is as tough as they come and this is one stealthy looking PM2.

Beautiful blade shape and awesome black color. The compression lock takes some getting used to but its way better than any liner or frame lock once you do. If you have yet to own a spyderco or knife with similar opening style than you might have some difficulties at first but like the compression lock you quickly get over it. The knife does its job and it does it well.

This is a great edc knife, incredibly sharp. Deceivingly lightweight given the size. The blade can double in a tactical or self defense application if necessary. Enlarged spidey-hole for easy flipping. Action is good, blade centering was slightly off (maybe 10% out of whack), which was fixable, but did require a slight tightening of the pivot. Scales are super grippy and ridgid. Embedded liners inspire confidence in the integrity of the knife while keeping it slim. The Compression lock is the best feature of this knife imo, such a great mechanism.
What else can you say.... Awesome!

Great Spyderco construction, awesome compression lock, nested skeletonized steel liners, and US made! These are all points that made the Paramilitary 2 awesome. However, I have a few points for those who are interested.

I find the knife unreasonably poky for an EDC. I don't see why you would require something that looks stab-happy when many other knives (like the Delica) offer a sharp tip, but isn't quite a needle point. The bad on this is that it can very easily break off. That's what threw me off the most considering I do not abuse my blades.

The only other point I'd mention, is the back end of the handle is very blocky, and while I like it better than the Para 3, it sticks out more than the Manix 2 upon entering the pocket.

Overall, you are getting a US made super slicer, with great ergos, a good steel, and it's made at a great price. However, if the Manix 2 had skeletonized liners, I'd recommend it over the PM2 for price, ergos, and feeling in the pocket. The Endura 4 is also a great option for less.

Been carrying a PM2 since 09', as I got it as a deployment present. It has been through it all and it hasn't failed me in any situation.

Definitely not an easily topped knife. Have amassed a small collection so far, and this knife is by far the best knife I own. Despite the hype of the blade, be in mind of the size of the knife, handle, blade and all. The oversized SpydyHole and lanyard hole are very nice additions. But the coating on the blade is very prone to scratches. The G-10 handles, despite having legendary texturing and feel, are not immune to easy scuffs. I put on a seat belt with a little too much enthusiasm and now the butt of my handle has a sizable depression. Overall, would definitely buy another, maybe in another steel (S30V is amazing and the best steel I've used thus far) or different handle colors.

I got this knife several years back for my birthday, and I have to say that it's been so nice. Right off the bat, it's Spyderco so you know you'll get a wicked edge, jimping, and a good pocket clip. After that, the blade is fantastic and keeps an edge for a long while. The DLC does mark a tad if abused, but most stains come off with an oil wipe. Some people think the size is a bit large, but I find it perfect for my tastes. It fits in the back-pocket fine, and can easily be opened with gloves. This model is classic and you can't go wrong with it for the price.

This was the first paramilitary 2 that I have ever owned and I was absolutely thrilled with it. The dlc coated blade held up really great throughout heavy use. The tip on this knife helped me do surgery on my finger after an accident at work. Great blade shape and the choil is awesome for getting a good grip on the knife for more precise cutting tasks.
Amazing knife

Gave this to a friend for his birth day. We work in a ship and very rust resistant. Coating is amazing with very little scratching

All the reviews are positive for a reason. One of the very best ďlargeĒ EDC or just general folding knives.
Full flat grind, S30V (great steel), flow through handle, sturdy and easy lock, 4 - way position clip, what more do you want? Oh, and the Spyder-hole.
Cuts 2" in front of the blade

Maybe the title is an exaggeration, but this knife is amazingly sharp and has excellent edge retention. This is has replaced my Endura 4 FFG as my EDC knife. Flicked open perfectly out of the box. The G10 was a bit rough at first but I've either gotten used to it or the roughness has worn down making it more comfortable to carry.
Great service

Blade hq shipped very quickly and made sure the centering of the blade was perfect. The knife itself is great and well worth the money.
Almost Perfect

Out of the box this knife came razor sharp especially at the tip. This knife most likely will not flick open very easily out of the box and will require tuning which is very easy. Use T9 torx bits to take the knife apart. Just be careful not to damage the lanyard tube as that took a lot of prying and oil to come loose. After tuning, cleaning and oiling this knife is the smoothest knife Iíve ever owned. Will drop shut with ease. Two gripes: one screw stripped which is a major hassle and pocket fuzz can accumulate inside the liners but just use a Q-Tip.
The hype is real.

I have a bunch of knives. All of my knives were purchased based on my own rating being high on 4 criteria. Quality of materials. Quality of execution. Effectiveness as a tool, and aesthetically trips my trigger. Spydies (for me) very rarely score high on aesthetics, and that includes the Para 2. Research and feedback clearly and consistently show the 1st 3 criteria are all 10ís, so I bought one. The hype is real. Get one. It really is all that everyone says it is.
You will NOT regret it!!!

I have carried this knife for a year straight (every day). This knife has held up amazingly great. Came very sharp out of the box. S30v seems to hold an edge pretty good. Iam very picky about keeping my edc knife hair popping sharp and s30v sharpens up very quickly. If you are concerned about the DLC coating, dont be. This coating is like no other. I use the hell out of it and it has light scratches that will come out with a clp wipe down. I love it so much i bought a spare in the same color "black on black" just in case.
Most balanced knife

Knife has the best attributes of size, speed, strength, precision and quality of anything I have seen. Came perfect out of box with a nice sharp symmetrical edge and great centering. Not sure how they sharpen it but its a whole lot better looking than the free hand, single grit, belt sander job other mfgs seem to think are OK.

The compression lock is exceptional and I love it, but I found that it does have a complexity. With the locking lug being ramped, the harder you open the knife the farther up the ramp the lock bar goes. This can cause the disengagement of the lock to seem a little inconsistent, sometimes being very light and other times being a little stuck and taking more effort that normal. I don't consider this to be an issue but it does have more going on than most lock designs. I use a drop of Milcomm TW25B grease on the ramp and it gives it a feel that I am really happy with. The black blade coating is proving to be the strongest of any of my knives and most are coated. There is a slight bit of texture to the DLC and I can feel it drag a touch in some cuts.

I definitely recommend buying it, I am now trying to decide which 2nd Paramilitary 2 to buy that will compliment my all-black one.

Great knife.

The knife is wonderful, but I have one question. Does anyone else's pm2 blackout not have the initials of sal and eric? If not why is that? I bought the knife from this website so I know it's not a fake. Just a curious knife collector thanks.

All you have to do is just hold this knife. The black coating blends perfectly with the G10 handle scales, blade centering is perfect, the action is smooth and you feel as though you are handling a piece of art worth at least twice the price. Enough from me though, this knife speaks for itself.

There is a reason why every rating for this knife (to this point) has 5 stars and why MANY reviews of other knives use it as a benchmark for comparative analysis. This will very quickly become your favorite EDC. If you're a "flipper" fan, the compression lock is a nice alternative to annoy those around you too.
Awesome knife

If you have debated buying one, DO IT! It took me months to decide if I wanted one due to lack of funds, but after I got one finally I couldn't believe I waited as long as I did. The only downside is not with the knife, but you can't send in the blade to have it professionally re-sharpened.. :( all in all an amazing knife.

This is the best knife I have ever owned and by far better than other Spyderco. Lightweight. Lightening fast deployment. There are other blades that are way more money and as you watch on YouTube, the user fumbles to open it. This is the best and last knife you will ever need. Quick, free shipping.
THE knife to own

The erco's size Color black on black with the subtle gold colored spydy. I've waited to get this particular para 2 and to say I am happy is a vast understatement. A lot of times in life items don't live up to the hype but this isn't one of them. Buy now you'll never regret you'll only wonder why it took so long.

I bought this model a few weeks ago. The g-10 scales are really nice and provide excellent traction. The jimping on the forward choil and on the thumb ramp really digs in! The dlc coating is ridiculous. I thought I had scratched it up at work but to my surprise, a magic eraser just wiped the scuffs away. The blade had side play and took a few minutes with a T-10 torx driver to tighten it up. It'll swing free and lock up tight now, I'd say 95% blade play free. Excellent job Spyederco! (Still carry my 940 though)
Best blade ever

I do not normally write reviews on thing I order off line but this is an exception. This knife is amazing and I own a few other great blades. I edc a Zero Tolerance 350 blackwash which I love but when I opened that Spyderco box and put the para 2 into my hands it was instant love. This knife just has it. I will own every model of it.
