Description

Features:
  • Exclusive tanto blade with a compound grind and a satin finish made from CPM-S30V stainless steel.
  • Washer pivot system for buttery-smooth opening.
  • Fine-textured G-10 handle scales in black over stainless steel liners.
  • Spyderco's excellent Compression Lock for maximum safety and accessibility.

Description:

Our Exclusive Tanto PM2 is the first PM2 to ever feature a tanto blade. It is compound ground with a hollow grind on the primary cutting edge and a flat grind on the tip and swedge. The result is a very durable blade that is utilitarian, capable of performing heavy-duty cuts as well as fine ones.

The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is one of the most popular knives on the market today, which is no surprise to anyone whoís ever held it. It boasts great materials, reliable build quality, an attractive aesthetic, an ergonomic grip, and is easy to use with one hand—a rare combination of excellent features. Each has contributed to the PM2ís 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.

We stock many versions of the Spyderco Paramilitary 2, made in several colors with different blade and handle materials. For a closer look at the PM2 Tanto, check out this sweet episode of Knife Banter:

I've amassed a collection of pocket knives over the years and the Tanto PM2 is easily top 2 or 3 if not tied for the winner. The standard blade never appealed to me since I always use bigger knives harder and was afraid to break or chip it. I also have the PM3 so didn't feel the need to get a bigger version of the same knife. The tanto blade fixed both of those problems for me and I'm super happy I decided to grab one. The big beefy tanto goes perfect with the larger handle size, I'd feel confident using this thing harder than I would a thinner blade. The weight makes flicking it open super satisfying and it closes just as easily. If BladeHQ ever releases another round of these I'm going to get at least 3 or 4 more to give for presents and replace the folders in my go bags. Awesome knife, highly recommended, you will not be disappointed if you can get one!
Itís the best!

Great knife! Perfectly made, cuts like a laser. I have a collection of about 25 spydercos, but seems to me, itís the best spider i ever held.
Add a PM2 Tanto to the collection? No doubt!

Thanks go out to both Blade HQ and Spyderco for offering this great addition to our collections. Many of us hope to see more Tantos in the future.

The overall grind on this blade and weight are both impressive. This knife arrived from Spyderco/Blade HQ as expectedÖwell tuned and ready for action. While the Tanto is slightly heavier than other PM2ís with the standard blade shape (4.2 oz vs 3.75 oz), the added weight enhances its appeal. The added weight and blade grind are both confidence boosters when tackling those tougher cutting tasks.

Snagged a September 2021 restock of these -- this is a must own PM2 version. If you collect or own more than 15 knives, you must own a PM2 Tanto, glad I snagged one as to stay in compliance with Knife Bro Laws.
A much better tool now.

Thank you Spyderco.

I never carried the original bladed PM2 when hard use and/or personal protection were heavy considerations. The tapered full flat grind is incredibly slicey, but never trusted the tip strength. This tanto is exactly the blade weight I always wished my PM2 had. Anything, if at all, it may give up in sliceyness, will be made up for in toughness. Iíll trust this one in almost all situations.

Well done.

I missed the Pm2 m4 tanto I wanted several months ago, with the site crash and all the frustrations with that but glad to see the Pm2 tanto was released again, this time with basic s30v and this time, no site crash! Ordered Friday and it was sitting in my mailbox at lunch on Monday. Canít get much better than that! Thanks BladeHQ!

First off I love(almost) everything about this knife and BladeHQ shipped quick. What I didnít like was getting it with a very ragged edge! I had no intentions of actually using this knife and the fact I had to sharpen it ticks me off. The edge looked as if they were I a major rush to get these out the door,I had to use a ceramic stick and strop to get it to where is should have been. I am not a razor edge purist like many are and factory sharp is usually good enough for or me but this was just poor workmanship.
Awesome EDC

My PM2 Tanto just arrived for Christmas. I have been waiting to get a PM2 tanto ever since they immediately sold out earlier in the year on blade hq. I concur with everything the first reviewer just wrote except I'm not going to sell my other PM2s (but I am sure that he was kidding anyway :-) This one is a wonderful weight and grind and I'm so excited to get a PM2 tanto for my collection. I am sure the black finish tanto is excellent also, but I prefer satin so this is now my immediate favorite EDC.
The perfect PM2 blade

Spyderco hit an absolute homerun with this Paramilitary 2 exclusive.

1. The grinds are amazing. The blade has a very strong tanto tip, yet retains much of the original PM2's slicing capability due to the hollow grind.

2. The overall blade shape is a work of art. All the lines flow well together and very much appeals to my love of japanese katanas.

3. The added weight of this model vs the standard PM2 is focused all on the blade, and grants multiple benefits. It creates a stouter blade which lends well to a MUCH better piercer. The heavier blade stock also lends to a satisfying drop shut fidget knife.

I am selling all my PM2s in my collection since this model has rendered them boring. It is THAT good.
