Blade is very chippy

I've used this knife for a few weeks now, and with medium use, cutting zip ties, opening boxes, packages, etc. and the blade has chipped a couple of times right on the top. Disappointing as it's a great tough knife, but I think it's due to how they belt sharpen at the factory and it heats the blade ...

Top 25 Pocket Knives that are Indispensable: #1 Spyderco Paramilitary 2 »

Spyderco’s Compression Lock has found the perfect host in the Paramilitary 2. Sal Glesser and his team designed the Compression Lock on demand, but the result is a truly innovative lock and on the Paramilitary 2 it is a masterstroke: strong, sure, and dead easy to operate. The Paramilitary 2 delivers cutting performance that is matched by few other knives of its size

Still underwhelmed with Spyderco

I've always resisted buying a spyderco because they were weird. I finally decided to get a knife with decent steel, didn't like much else at the time and settled for a blackened S30V PM2.

Not Fake, Great Knife

Definitely not fake, took some photos of some key features to inspect on the fake Chinese knockoffs. Awesome knife, surprisingly light weight, super sharp. The pivot is smooth although a little stiff, I’ve read though that its normal and will loosen up a bit with use and proper care. Blade is sharp ...

Pristine Knife. Great Buy.

Look, there's few blades that can handle the streets on a daily basis. This is one of those blades. Great body, great reliability. Never leave the house without it, neither should you.

The best folding knife ever made

I have a Paramilitary 2 from 2015 that I waited patiently for when Amazon was low on stock of them. When it finally came, I carried it regularly all the way until this year. My knife is still in great shape (I replaced my EDC with a Para3 G10 version), and I stuck the PM2 in my hiking bag. But I wan...

It's ok

It's a really tight knife when opened, it feels like a solid blade and extremely sharp. However the ergonomics suck, it feels like you have a big square chunk of metal in your pocket. The material designed to make the grip better is going to tear up your clothing, every time I clip it in my pocket I...
