    Default What Spyderco Paramilitary 2?

    I'm still thinking.....

    • Black scales/black DLC coated blade
    • Black scales/silver blade
    • Brown scales/silver blade
    • Camo scales/black DLC coated blade
    • Camo scales/silver blade

    What do you have or like best?

    cheers, John

    never been a great fan of spyderco knives tending to prefer BM.

    however the PM2 does seem to get some cracking reviews -

    and then click Reviews...

    as for particulars that's all down to personal preference.

    but never been a fan of camo G-10 handles.

    and that's a really nice steel.

    Yes,

    black/black are at the top of my list........ brown looks nice though, camo scales are a little over the top and look bad from the edge and I'd prefer OD or simular.

    I really like the brown........ made an offer on one..... the brown has S35VN steel, probably not much difference to S30V I guess..... but it has it. Here's a brown G10.......




    What do you think?......

    Camo scales/silver....love it

    Spyderco are amazing, gone back and forwards between them and Katz and Benchmade and I still think the Spyderco is way out in front.

    Although Bang for buck my Kershaw has kept pace also, just falls behind in the blade dept.

    For sure my two favorite Spyderco's are:

    Police: Black G10 Scales handles or Stainless Steel handles.

    Military: Black G10 Scales handles or Titainium handles.

    Having owned many knives, including Strider, Benchmade, ZT, etc., the Paramilitary 2 is one of my favorites. I have a sprint-run PM2 from bentobox that uses M390 steel and has blue G10 scales. I'm less likely to lose it if dropped. I prefer the bright scales for my use. If I wanted a knife for military use, I would likely choose something with different aesthetics, but all of them have great ergonomics and a scalpel-like blade.
