Description

The PM2 Tanto sure went quick! The good news is that we have more on the way. We don't know when they will arrive, but we'll keep you posted. Click the "Email Me" button above to be notified when this item comes into stock, and follow us on Instagram @BladeHQ for updates, and other nifty knife content!

Since its release, the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 has become a favorite from field to forum, and for good reason. It has the ergonomics, materials, mechanism, and build quality that make it a true titan of a knife. When the community asked for a Para 2 tanto blade, Spyderco listened, and it's only available at Blade HQ!

Instead of just chopping the tip off and calling it good, Spyderco designed the perfect tanto for the PM2. The blade starts with a stout blade stock that gets a hollow grind on the primary edge, and a then off to a flat grinder for the secondary edge and the swedge. The result is a blade that can both take a beating and perform delicate work.

While the blade is new, the handle is identical to the original PM2, and all scales compatible with the original PM2 are compatible with this one.

Features:
  • Premium CPM-S30V, compound ground blade with a black DLC finish
  • Black G-10 handle scales and Spyderco's original Compression Lock
  • Oversized lanyard hole and four-way reversible pocket clip

The paramilitary 2 is a great knife but mine has a little play out of the box. Not horrible mind you but nothing you can personally do to fix it. It is still a good knife and I am sure it will work like my others .

I've been enjoying carrying this PM2. The Tanto blade is a sexy one. If you like the regular PM2 you will definitely like this one. Plus it's unique hopefully it will stay that way and the market doesn't get flooded with these.
Another hit by Spyderco!

This one is a little beefier than my other PM 2, but the build quality is still there...out of the box sharp, perfect blade centering, smooth operation, and a solid lockup. If a Tanto style blade is what you need, buy this one!
First but definitely not last Spyderco

I've been looking forward for this to drop since they showed it in the shot show videos and it does not disappoint! I have talked myself out of the standard pm2 for fear of the dainty tip but the tanto takes care of those fears and adds utility to the knife. The g10 was rough on the inside of the liners but that's normal for pm2's I've heard and was an easy fix. Action and centering were perfect out of the box. The g10 is perfectly textured to provide fantastic grip but doesn't seem too rough and the jimping is also perfect; sharp enough for good grip without tearing into my hand. I was worried that the hollow grind would make the edge too thin for a hardy work knife, but am pleased that it was kept shallow to maintain strength but still cut very well.
Heavy Duty!

One tough blade, and the compression lock is hands down, my favorite lock. so easy to use. Great knife, well worth the wait.

Like a great many others, I have been waiting for this since the SHOT Show reveal in January. Was a little bummed when it was announced that the blade would be DLC. I thought it would take away from the beauty of the grind. Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. Knife is beautiful. Profile of knife following bottom of handle forward along edge of blade to tip is outstanding. So radically different than regular Para 2. If you missed this release, be ready for the next. You will not be disappointed! P.S. - when/if this knife comes out with a satin blade finish, I will be first in line!

Really like this knife. I am looking forward to some other variants (ahem, BHQ, when is the DLC and natural G10 M4 coming?), but this one is great. It's actually one of the better QD'd pieces from Spyderco I've received in a while. Great action, blade's centered, no lock stick or blade play. Just love the shape of the blade, and it flips out with a little more authority due to the weight of the blade, or at least the placement of that weight.
Fantastic version of the PM2

The PM2 was already close to the ideal knife and the new tanto blade is incredible. It's obvious the designer put some serious thought into it.

Hands clapping, little girl squealing, and all around glee is what happened when I opened the box to my Para 2 Tanto! I've been a big fan of Spyderco for a long time. They make fantastic quality knives. I some how missed the previous Tanto model the rebased a while back, but when I saw that Blade HQ was having a special run made I put myself on the notification list and set the cash aside. Which was a good thing, because it seemed like these knives sold out in a day to two! Anyway, I've been carrying it since it arrived. It feels good in my (large) hands. It cuts well, and it handles and carries like other Para 2's, but the best part is it has better tip retention because of the new blade profile. Love it! I highly recommend this knife for day carry, or collection. I have zero complaints. Other than I would like to see more color options... So I can buy one for every occasion! A special thanks to Blade HQ for teaming up with Spyderco on this sweet folder! I tip my hat to you...

Honestly I have never liked the pm2 blade shape. Has always prevented me from really wanting one for EDC.

The tanto on this thing looks so awesome. I just wish it wasn't all blacked out, def would have preferred a BHQ blue or something.

But hey with the number of after market scales available, I'll be good. BHQ is prob my favorite place to get my knives and love these exclusives that give me an excuse to pull the trigger first and sort out my wallet later lol

This knife is the real deal. The action is on par with my sage 5 lightweight after a hundred or so openings. The all black is nice, but would have preferred a unique scale selection although the black g-10 is very nice. Only complaint is the price - I could see a justification of 175, but 200 is a bit steep.
Pretty Awesome!

At first i was a little uneasy about the blade shape. Im not a big fan of tanto blades, but I am a huge fan of the Paramilitary 2. As i used it more and more i have grown to love the tanto blade shape. Cant say i like it more than the original shape tho. The only think i have to gripe about is the blade steel. I would have loved to see this in a S90V, M390, or K390. Minus 1 star for the standard blade material. But all of the other 4 stars are definitely earned here!

This blade stock definitely deviates from the norm as far as PM2s go. Super thick up top making it feel like a hard-use workhorse instead of a slicey/delicate knife that PM2s usually convey. Mine had near-perfect centering and smooth action. I will probably be throwing a deep carry clip on mine though.

I have owned Spyderco knives for over 20 years. This is my first from the PM series, but it will NOT be my last!

The QC is on point with this knife. It is centered perfectly, the lock-up could NOT be better, the DLC is outstanding, and the action is smoooooth!

The blade geometry of the tanto blade is phenomenal! Spyderco took their time and it shows. While many will keep this in box and in their safe, this blade is too perfect NOT to carry!
Slick Knife!

I just got mine today. I think this is the knife Spyderco fans have been waiting for. The Tanto blade for the Paramilitary 2 is awesome. I love the stealthy look and design. The G-10 handle feels great, and overall this knife is a lot lighter than I anticipated. I cant find anything I dislike, and I typically carry a Benchmade Bugout most of the time. Its easy to see why this knife is quickly selling out. This is an absolute winner, and will occupy prime placement in my EDC gear.
Worth it!

Mine had near-perfect centering and smooth action. I will probably be throwing a deep carry clip on mine though.

Had to jump on this as soon as I saw the release date. This thing is gnarly. The old lady probably would've rather me bought her a present instead, but I couldn't miss this opportunity. I love this knife and it has handled everything I've put in its way so far.

They really hit it out of the park on this one the PM2 ergos with the tanto blade is just excellent; the only thing that could make it better would be additional colors in for the G10 scales!
What's not to love?

Its a Spyderco, its a paramilitary, its a folding tanto blade...

Honestly, its a great knife that I will have for many years to come.

I have owned Spyderco knives for over 20 years. This is my first from the PM series, but it will NOT be my last!

The QC is on point with this knife. It is centered perfectly, the lock-up could NOT be better, the DLC is outstanding, and the action is smoooooth!

The blade geometry of the tanto blade is phenomenal! Spyderco took their time and it shows. While many will keep this in box and in their safe, this blade is too perfect NOT to carry!
Slick Knife!

First Para 2 but second spyderco knife. I have been waiting for this para since bladehq announced it back in January. It feels like it will be able to handle anything I throw at it and more. On a side note I also ordered a Lynch NW bronze deep carry clip for it that I think will look great!
WOW

If Snake-Eyes from G.I.Joe where to carry a pocket knife, this would be it. This thing is awesome!

No disappointment in the newest addition to the Paramilitary line. I'm glad Spydeco and BHQ have collaborated to grind such a strong and elegant Tanto blade! My new EDC!
Just got today!

Action is smooth, compression lock is worth the hype, opens and closes like a dream! Blade definitely feels more stout than the regular Para 2. My only complaint although petty.
Pure Awesomeness

I just got mine today. I think this is the knife Spyderco fans have been waiting for. The Tanto blade for the Paramilitary 2 is awesome. I love the stealthy look and design. The G-10 handle feels great, and overall this knife is a lot lighter than I anticipated. I cant find anything I dislike, and I typically carry a Benchmade Bugout most of the time. Its easy to see why this knife is quickly selling out. This is an absolute winner, and will occupy prime placement in my EDC gear.
Worth it!

I just got mine and it is awesome. The blade has more beef than the standard Para Military 2. They sold out so quick. I had my alarm set so I could get one!
