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.

1) Contains a high-quality steel and a full-flat grind blade
2) 4 oz. or less in weight so I can wear with dress slacks in the office
2) Can easily handle common indoors tasks such as opening boxes and slicing food
3) Strong and hardy enough for woodworking and other outdoors activities such as hunting and camping
2) Can be rapidly deployed but not a switchblade
4) Last but not least: Made in the USA by reputable company.
The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 meets all of these criteria. I never spent over $100 on a knife before, but I'm thoroughly convinced that my investment was well worth it. It's my EDC knife now and forever.
I wish it were smoother to open/close than it is, like my father's model/specimen is. Loosening the screw on mine helped, but it's still not there. I'm confident it's increased friction from the coating, period. The screw is already above the level of the resin scales, which I don't like. If I make it any looser, it'll protrude even more and the blade will get sloppy (I tried it).
Hopefully in twenty years I'll inherit my father's copy. I can suffer with this one (my favorite of all my pocket knives) until then.
That G10 digi camo is sexy as hell to boot.
I carried cheaper folders for years afraid that I might lose them, but after wearing Kerhaws and CRKTs successfully for decades without a single MIA, I figured I should reward myself and step up a tier.
Glad this little bad ass is on my side every day.
Light, perfectly balanced, aesthetically pleasing, sharp as the devils silver tongue and with a steel that's easy to maintain and retain.
This investment is worth every cent.
(Previous reviews from a few years back voiced concerns over replicas being shipped out on Amazon. I can confirm that mine is authentic as of late 2016)
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.
The only thing that I can really complain about is that the main weakness of the compression lock is keeping a blade closed. It is solid as a rock open since you would have to somehow cause about 1/5" of steel to literally snap for it to close, but there isnt much pressure keeping the blade closed besides a bearing in a groove. I can get the blade to deploy by vigorously shaking the knife, which surprised me at first. Because of that, I exercise extra caution with this blade since I carry it tip up. There shouldnt be any real issue with the blade opening by itself since there is more than enough pressure keeping it closed, and it takes quite a lot of unintentional movement to have any real chance of it opening by itself, which shouldn't happen if you keep it in your pocket.
for most people, this is the perfect size for EDC, at about 3.5 inches, I find it to be a hair too big for me since im used to carrying 3" blades like the Benchmade Emissary or the Delica since im a small guy. Im usually fine with up to 3.25" blades, but 3.5" just feels a bit out of place for me.
The clip comes from the factory for right hand tip down carry, I easily swapped to right hand tip up carry with a small torx screwdriver.
So far, this is my favorite knife, and for anyone looking for an exceptional EDC should consider this, especially if you like something that opens and closes with almost no effort with only a single hand.
