Great knife
I own quite a few knives and am very selective about the ones I purchase. While this blade isn't nearly as costly as most other knives I own, it certainly ranks up there in terms of over all quality. This blade is very well made, easy to deploy, unique in it's styling, and super sharp out of the box. A great value.

Nice Knife
Hair shaving sharp, nice size and ergos, solid lock-up, Made in USA & awesome fit and finish. Would like a bit more belly & still getting used to the compression lock but I knew this going in.. Knife gets smoother as I use it.

Excellent Knife!
I carry this knife everyday, and it hasn't met a task it couldn't handle yet. It's helped me break down some boxes, open mail, slice up some fruit, and even help me start a fire with some feather sticks. I was a little shaky about the compression lock but it has yet to fail or prove that it can't handle the work. Can't recommend this knife enough!

Excelent quality, craftsmanship, and design!
Another wonderful product from Sprderco! Homerun! Perfect for EDC / Tactical use. Buyer understand the Steel in this knife is known by many as a "super steel". CPM S30V is a wear resistant steel. The steel in this knife is so resistant that most sharpening systems will not effect the edge. A diamond sharpener or the use of diamond paste or spray on a strop will get you the results needed for maintaining the edge. It comes extreemly sharp out of the box!!! I got great service from KnifeCenter.com and have no complaints. My order exceeded $149 so I recieved free shipping. The recieved my order in just a few days as well. I will shop here again and would suggest a friend do the same.

Amazing folding knife
This is probably the best way to spend $120. The blade deploys super fast, it locks up like a vault, and the knife is very easy to operate. I find that if I'm on the computer or something, my hand gravitates toward this knife. The handle fits my hand like a glove. The blade is insanely sharp, and S30V is top notch, so it holds a razor edge. the tip is somewhat thin, but I have seen some crazy testing videos (Including batoning the knife into a tree), all in which the tip survives. It serves well as a backup survival knife, and cuts through wood like butter. The clip is secure and the knife rides deep in the pocket, but doesn't destroy your pocket. The pillar construction and satin finish makes this knife a breeze to clean (In a sink or dipped in a river) and it dries quickly. Overall, I highly recommend this knife.

Spyderco Has Won Me Over
I just received the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 in the mail today, it took all of 3 days to get from Maryland to Washington (thanks, Knifecenter), and I have to say that I'm really impressed with every aspect of this blade. One week ago I thought Spyderco's were among the ugliest of all production knives, and I had no interest in them. But, I started reading some reviews touting the knifes quality, then went to You Tube to watch some video reviews. I couldn't really find one that had anything negative to say about the knife. In fact, most raved about it. So, I took a flier and ordered one from KC. In the interim, and being the impatient sort that I am, I bought a Spyderco Native from a local retailer, and I ended up really liking that knife, which only made me all the more excited about the Para. The Paramilitary 2 really lives up to the advanced billing. Feel in the hand, ease of opening - and I really haven't run it in yet - great grippy G10 scales and the terrific S30V blade. There is just a great overall feeling of quality, and I think it is an excellent value at its price point. Needless to say, I'm sold on this brand, and I've already pre-ordered the earth-handled Para 2. I may not like every model Spyderco makes, but this one can be summed up in one word: outstanding. If you're on the fence about this knife, stop thinking about it and just buy it.

Great knife
Fine edc knife.Very comfortable in the pocket, and the hand. The compression lock is easy to use and appears very strong and secure in any grip. Handle scales are properly grippy, and the blade shape and edge are very useful for every day tasks and defense if needed. Great design and worth the bucks!

Impressive!
A few years ago I used to be addicted to buyin knives. I had probably 60 knives that I'd bought just a lil over a year. During that time I gained an interent into making knives, and ended up buying a small belt sander to get started trying to make 'em from file etc. I also ended up screwing up several $100 cause Id get carried away trying to sharpen them using it. Anyway I ended up selling pretty much all of my blades over craigslist so I could buy some better tools etc for making blades and cause I gained more interest in making knives that actually usin them. To the point... I did however carry a spyderco tenaciuos basically during that whole period until now and it has litterally 1/2 of its blades left dur to sharpenings and not givin a s*** too much bout using and abusin it. I wanted to start fresh with a nice new knife cause recently i've been bitten by the bug (the buying bug) again lol (not obssesed like i used to be) and I bought this knife after selling one that I had made. All I can say is this knife is incredible. Like i siad I owned alot of knives in the past and handled even more and alotta them were well made blades so I have a pretty good idea of what else is out there. But yea, so after carrying this knife for a day (the first day I got it "last monday") and then pickin up my tenacious again, I was very suprised when I was having troubl flicking it open and not to mention it felt like a pound compared to the paramilitary 2. lol this knife just openes so smooth, and even tho its not forward heavy (heave blade) , when u flick it open its seems to have the momentum of a knife that has a heavy tip a just finishes opening itself with half the effort (I hope that makes sence) All in all this knife in my opinion is superior in every aspect: Ergonomically, Lock up, smoothness, steel type, LOOKS!!, etc etc. I does come hair popping sharp, and the blade itself, has a nice tip that is pointy enough to do delicate work , yet still stout enough to withstand a good amount of abuse (within reason of course ie. no prying etc) I was hesitant to by this knife because of thinking it might be to weak and I be too scared to use it but now that I have it and have used it, I have complete confidencein it, not to mention the lock up is solid and the lock itself is designedto be very strong. So if your goin back and fourth in ur mind about whether or not to get the knife, Id say go for it!! You wont be disappointed. Hope this helps :) btw the price is a bargin in my opinion for all u get. A Solid package make in good ol USA Earth ;)

AMAZING
To the previous poster: That is the longest run on sentence I have ever seen. A little punctuation wouldn't hurt. Anyways, this is the greatest knife ever to exist. I am an avid camper and this knife has never let me down. It opens very smoothly and holds a nice edge. It is very high quality. I ALWAYS carry this knife (or my harpy for certain outings) every time I leave the house.

paramiltary 2 beast
okay i bought this knife after thinking about it for more then 6months i was not a spyderco fan before i got my hands on this knife the blade comes pretty sharp so sharp in fact i cut my thumb open the first few hours i had it doing some cut test was doing a quick slice on paper and ended up hitting my thumb too only cut a small hunk of skin and meat off did not even feel it was so fast and sharp since then been more careful with it and can say it has lived up to all the hype that this knife has gotten the lock was not super easy to get use to i am a lefty so i had to learn to do it in a odd fashion my right hand has got it down pat i am very happy to own this blade and would recommend this to anyone who has the money to buy it and who uses their knives daily i have mine even sharper then it came out of box it can now slice soft toilet paper with ease this knife has converted me to a spyderco fan

All-Time Home Run
I have been a knife collector and user for many years, and this is my all time favorite carry knife. It is a triumph of form following function, it has an aesthetic appeal all its own but it is in use that this knife shines. Ergonomics are fantastic, even for people like me with big hands. It opens rapidly, and closes with equal aplomb (careful on one handed closing not to cut yourself.) The blade shape is outstanding for nearly all types of tasks that might be encountered in daily life, both urban and rural. Build quality is flawless, no wiggles or weaknesses, even after prolonged use as mine has seen. It was my companion knife to my fixed blade for a 2 1/2 week jungle trek in costa rica, and it served without fail. Outstandingly sharp, very efficient, light, readily configured to any carry style, it's impossible to talk about this knife without superlatives. There's a good reason they're so often sold out.

my EDC
I thought it would be a bit too big for an EDC, but it turned out to be just what I needed. I lost mine and bought another one, exactly the same cause this knife feel so nice all around....Comes very sharp out of the box, the steel is easy to maintain keeping the edge razor sharp. Yet, when it cuts you feel no pain……I blackened the clip though to keep the clip shine at bay.

Best EDC I've found!
I just cant say enough good things about this knife. It is light, strong, ergonomic and carries really well. The 3 1/2" blade is ideal for me as a EDC. The lock is super strong and I've found it really easy to use (I'm a righty). This knife has a bushing pivot that makes the blade actually free fall if the lock is pressed in all the way, yet have zero play. The clip is ideal for me and a good compromise between deep carry and accessibility. I have the S90V version, but S30v is still a premium steel. Finally the value is insane. Try to find a better knife for less!

|||Spyderco Paramilitary2: Little knife, Big performance|||
I purchased the Spyderco Paramilitary2 Black G10 S30V as a birthday gift. I wanted to treat my self to a really fine blade steel, and after some research, all answers pointed S30V. S30V is the same steel that popular knife makers like Chris Reeve, Rick Hinderer, and the guys at Strider use for their folding knives. I also wanted to purchase a quality name brand knife, and for the price, there is no finer than Spyderco. I use my Para2 for Everyday Carry (EDC for short). The blade is a great length for me and the finger choil lets me make precision cuts with control and ease. The high-texture G10 handle scales ensure a firm grip without slippage. The thumb ramp and finger choil jimping add grip for forward cutting. I love the oversized lanyard hole and thumb hole, which adds ease of opening, even with gloves. I find the Compression lock unique and just as strong and any liner lock, if not stronger. If there was something I would want to change about the knife, it would be to change the "hourglass" pocketclip to Spyderco's signature "paperclip" pocketclip for deeper carry in the pocket because I find the Para2 rides a little high for my taste. Over all the Para2 is one of Spydie's best knives and will be at the ready at any moment for a lifetime.

Perfect Carry Knife...
I absolutely love this knife. The blade is the perfect size to do small delicate tasks, but big enough for those larger jobs. It is razor sharp and being flat ground is quite a slicer. The G-10 grips feel like they were molded for my hands. The pocket clip allows for 4 different carry positions. I only wish the clip were black instead of polished steel. The compression lock makes one handed operation very easy with just a little practice. I carry this knife every day, both in plain clothes and in uniform as a police officer.
