The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is one of the most popular knives on the market today, which is no surprise to anyone who’s ever held it. It boasts great materials, reliable build quality, an attractive aesthetic, and an ergonomic grip, and is easy to use with one hand—a rare combination of excellent features. Each has contributed to the PM2’s astonishing popularity. This icon of the knife industry has found its way into the pockets of soldiers, builders, hunters, survivalists, and everyday knife carriers all over the world. A host of aftermarket customization options from companies like Flytanium allow it to be truly individualized. Every knife enthusiast needs a PM2 in their collection.
The Paramilitary 2 as we know it today is the second iteration of the old Para Military, a model designed by Spyderco as a more compact and accessible version of their Military model. But if you're looking for something even more compact, the Para 3 might be the knife for you!
I own several other knives, but this is my first PM2. This variant is nice because of the S90V steel. The action is smooth. The edge is razor sharp. Looking forward to using this regularly around the house or when I'm out and about. Thanks Blade HQ!
Love this knife! I was really worried about the size but it ended up being okay. This knife is now part of my EDC rotation.
Sharp and smooth action as my other pm2’s. But the Teal scales more match the mint green on the M4 edition PM3. But I didn’t care about the color of the scales, I wanted the s90v blade steel. Recently purchased the Shamaan s90v from another supplier and the pM2 blade is much sharper and much more edc friendly IMO. Next is the Delica in Teal and black for the wife. So I can get my PM3 LW mint green blade back.
Less true teal and closer to mint chocolate chip, but otherwise it's a proper PM2, in a premium steel, with a color that will get fellow collectors talking, what more do you want? The ergos rule, the action rules, it sits perfectly in the pocket, and you couldn't ask much more from a pocket companion. Buy it already!
