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.

It's a 5-star knife but I gave it 4 because 1) it wasn't as sharp as my mini Griptilian straight out of the box. Had to sharpen it a decent amount considering it's a brand new knife, and 2) this is my second copy. The first one I ordered had a defective washer which made the knife impossible to open one-handed.
If you're going to buy 1 knife, or don't know where to start, start with the Paramilitary 2, as it'll do everything a folder should be expected to do-- utility, camping/hunting, food and self defense. It's lightweight enough to carry without notice, but strongly built. The action is incredibly smooth, you'll be looking for reasons to deploy it.
Then, if you want to "specialize" so to speak, you've got choices:
Skinning game? Stretch 1 or 2, with its larger belly. Gain in that department, but b/c thinner blade, will sacrifice a little on self defense and heavier utility applicability.
Smaller EDC? Delica. Wharncliffe version adds utility and self defense edge but reduces food prep (harder to cut a sandwich with a flat edged razor blade).
Self defense? Yohimbo (think Gangs of New York). Less functional for day to day utility and food than others on the list, but if self defense is your priority, that doesn't really matter. Consider the Karahawk as well.
Chopping firewood? Then you need a fixed, full-tang blade and that's a different conversation all together.
Not sure what it is about this knife, other than its sheer excellency, but the longer I have it the more I like it. Upon originally receiving the knife I wasn't super impressed, but the more I carried and used it the more it grew on me. At this point I don't think there is anything else on the market in my budget that could replace the paramilitary 2 as my favorite.
Is the extra cost worth the PM over the Tenacious? Yes, I think so. I've had both. I really like the PM. That said, If I could not swing the cost of the PM, I would buy another Tenacious in a heart beat. Spyderco is my only carry choice.
