A damn fine folding knife for demandig use. As the name implies the Para Military was designed with military use in mind, straightforward design and fantastic quality, these combined make this an extremely reliable folder for any use. S30 V steel blade, quite possibly the best knife steel in the world. If you want a folding knife to serve you for the rest of your days this here is a good choice! Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A.

Para Military 2 features

  • Extremely strong construction, high quality materials and thick blade with Diamond-Like Coating.
  • Medium size, closed length a bit over 12 cm.
  • Locking blade (Compression Lock mechanism) for user safety.
  • Easy to open with the flick of your thumb.
  • Typical Spyderco sleek and minimalistic design.
  • Rough textured handle scales for great grip.
  • Belt clip and lanyard hole for carrying.

Technical specs

  • Length open/closed: 210/122 mm
  • Weight: 111 g
  • Blade thickness: 3,5 mm
  • Steel: CPM S30V (stainless)
  • Handle: G-10

S30V steel is fantastic stuff, not cheap but worth the extra coin for those looking for the best performance available. Basically it handles like carbon steel, being easy to sharpen and having good edge retention but is still very resistant to rust like stainless steel. The good properties of both with none of the downsides!

As the name implies this is the second version of the Para Military. Spyderco has this to say:

Our 2010 Para Military 2 has several changes over the classic version. The G-10 handle is narrowed at the end improving the ergonomics. The handle and blade have been profile thinner; removing uncomfortable angles when in the closed position. It features a Compression Lock and an ambidextrous-friendly four way clip which carries tip-up/tip-down, left/right-hand and rests deeper in a pocket. We kept the same high-performance CPM S30V full flat-ground blade but we've also lengthened the blade's tip and added additional surface jimping to both the spine and finger choil. Implementation of a new Bushing Pivot System generates fluid action and more consistent manufacturing tolerances. Larger lanyard gives more options for carry.

Erittäin hyvä kääntöveitsi. Tällä perkaa kalat ja veistää kiehiset sekä availee ja viltelee pahvilaatikot, leikkelee nauhat ja remmit ja kuorii hedelmät reissussa.
Terämateriaali on sellaista että parin vuoden käytön jälkeenkin vielä muutama veto nahkavyötä vasten ja taas leikkaa.
Jos meinaat omistaa yhden kääntöveitsen, omista tämä.

A great knife out of a good steel with an excellent blade shape for cutting and detailed work.

Best thing about the PM2 however is the ease of usage due to the compression lock. I can open and close this knife in under a second easily. No other pocket knife I know of (except OTFs maybe) can be deployed and packed away again as quick and easy as this one.

An excellent EDC knife if you don't mind the size.
