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.

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.

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 ›

If you check out reviews for this knife in utube, knifecenter.com and other sites, you will see a steady 5 star review. I initially purchased this as a gift, but I'm so impressed with the quality that I decided to keep it for myself. I bought the Para2 plain edge in camo handle and black blade. The only difference is the color of the blade and handle.
I have a few high end priced knives to include Busse and Chris Reeve. I almost purchased a $330 pocket knife until I ran into the reviews on this knife. Previous owners stated it was the best Spyderco has created taking in mind all of the quality control recommendations from previous owners. First of all, the blade is well known for maintaining its sharpness and its durablity. The heat treatment is around 59. The handle is G10 which also maintains a good grip and the lock blade is also of high quality. I won't get technical, thats what the description is for.
The only negative, which is really not one is that the knife doesn't hook up easily to a pants pocket due to the friction of the clip and the G10. This can easily be fixed by sanding down that part of the G10.
This is a must buy for a folder knife.

Whew, what can be said about this knife. A couple months back I bought a Manix 2 and stated that was the most expensive knife planned on owning. That didn't stick. Not even a bit. Strap in, this is gonna be a long review.

Upon receiving this knife my heart was pounding. I haven't been this excited in a long while. Technically, I'm an adult (28) but I still occasionally get excited over things. It's a sign of youth or something. Anyway...upon opening the Amazon box and subsequent Spyderco box, I realized my excitement was well founded. It was love at first sight. If you're reading this I'm sure you understand what I mean.

The box had the knife (obviously) and the requisite Spyderco paperwork. The knife was wrapped in a plastic sleeve. After removing the knife and holding it for the first time I saw why the Para2 is so difficult to get/keep in stock. It is beautiful. The camo scales are flawless. The satin finish is flawless. The centering and materials are flawless. The grind is flawless. The black logo and wording is flawless. I'm kinda rambling on here so let's get down to the meat of this knife....

The G10 handles, as stated earlier, are beautiful. Moreover, they are functionally superior. The grip texture is awesome. No worries of it shredding my pockets, but it grips amazingly. The G10 on the Tenacious feels like garbage compared (and I think the Tenacious is about the best value for the money). The bright silver pocket clip, standard spoon style, works excellently and is 4 way positionable. Left/right, tip up/down. Why don't all manufacturers do this? It carries fairly deep, about a half inch or so sticks up above the pocket in the tip up orientation. Not too bad. The GIANT lanyard hole is nice and its 'piped' not a hole in each scale.
