Product Description

The Para Military provides the performance and reliability of Spyderco's acclaimed Military model in a more compact package. Two-thirds the size of the original Military, it boasts a flat-ground CPM-S30V blade with an easily indexed 14mm Spyderco Round Hole for gloved or large hands. Its handle is constructed of stainless steel liners nested into textured black G-10 scales. The Para Military's black DLC-coated blade locks open by means of Spyderco's proprietary Compression Lock--one of the strongest folding knife locks ever produced. Ergonomic curves in the handle profile lock the user's hand securely in place, providing superior control and preventing slippage. A black steel pocket clip supports convenient carry and immediate accessibility, positioning the knife for right-hand, tip-down carry.

I am a big fan of Spyderco products. If you search my other reviews you'll find that I gave their flat ground Endura knife 5 stars and a rave review. For a little less than twice the price this knife gives you some big pluses and one or two slight negatives. First the (for me) cons: The blade is slightly shorter with about the same size grips, so you get less blade for the same amount of real estate in your pocket. The handle is slightly thicker, so the knife is very slightly less comfortable to carry. Lastly, as much as I love that this knife is US made, I find the fit and finish not quite up to the high standards of Japanese made Spyderco products like the Endura. Now the positives: The ergonomics of this knife are just amazing. It fits in the hand so naturally and can be gripped comfortably is a variety of positions. It blows away any other folding knife I've ever tried in this regard, including other Spydercos. If carried tip down as it comes from the factory, it is also has the most intuitive, swift and discrete deployment of any knife I've seen. Simply pull it out of your pocket by gripping the hole in the blade with thumb and the clip with your forefinger, give the knife a gentle downward snap while keeping your grip on the blade, and the knife opens. During this movement, the knife is mostly concealed by your hand so there is no flashy and intimidating blade flicking going on. I use my knife a lot, often in front of people who might be offended by such a display, so this is important to me. You can open any Spyderco folder like this, but with the way the PM2 is designed, it just works better. The S30V steel is not bad.Read more ›

So I really didn't NEED a new knife when I bought this one. I have plenty of knives, and I'm very happy with all of them. But after reading lots of reviews and hearing how much everybody loves this knife I gave in and bought it.

First Impressions:

- It came out of the box hair popping sharp
- The action was smoother than any other knife I own, but stiffer than I expected
- The larger hole was nice
- Flow through design was a nice to have
- etc

Basically everything seemed pretty good and I liked it. But I wasn't incredibly in love with it, I mean it wasn't like I was ready to have it replace all my other knives. So I started carrying it as my EDC and thought I would see if it grew on me more, or if it was just going to be added to my rotation.

After Regular Use:

But something happened the more I used it. The action loosened up a little and now it takes very little effort to flip it open. I have forgotten about the extra heft in my pocket and it has become a non-issue. And after a few weeks of carrying it and using it I realized I love this knife. Picking up my other knives (Spyderco Dragonfly, Spyderco Delica, Spyderco Endura, etc) I noticed how all the features in this knife add up to be an amazing knife. The Spyder holes on my other knives seem too small now, the actions too stiff and difficult to open, the blades too thin, too short, too long, etc. Basically this knife has become my one EDC knife.

The blade length is perfect at < 3.5 inches. The handle large is enough to play around with different grips and have them all feel comfortable. The CPM-S30V steel cuts all day long without needing a touch up.

seriously, for about $125USD as of early 2015, this is one of the best folding knives you can get on the market.

The compression lock is great, and only takes a couple minutes to get fully accustomed to. it allows you to quickly flip open and closed the blade with very little effort, yet the lockup is extremely strong, so there is no worry of the knife closing on you on accident, unless you do something stupid, like bash the blade with a sledgehammer. I like the compression lock so much that I havent actually used the spyderhole to open the blade in a long time.

you get great steel for the price too, for such a large blade in S30V, compared to some other companies using S30V in their blades *cough* Benchmade *cough*, you get much more of the premium steel for the blade and the blade is pretty dang chunky compared to the other Spyderco mainstays like the Delica/Endura.

The blade comes uncomfortably sharp from the factory and being that its S30V, it will be moderately easy to keep it that sharp. Ive cut myself already on this blade. I slipped while cutting something, and I felt it scratch against my thumb. I looked over, and didnt see anything wrong, no cuts, no blood. A couple minutes later, I noticed that my thumb was bleeding... didnt feel any pain or anything, and thats before I touched up the blade on my sharpmaker after some hard use.

The G10 scales are extremely grippy, but not rough enough to be uncomfortable, think of it kind of feeling like a nail file, except not made of steel. there are also skeletonized steel liners that make the handle rock solid, with no chance of warping or flexing, even from hard use.

The tip is very fine, and I have already slightly blunted it from my use/ineptitude at sharpening.
