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.
