This Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is an amazing pocket knife that is made in the Spyderco factory in Golden, Colorado, USA, Earth. As befits Spyderco the finish is sublime. It opens easily and the famous Compression Lock, designed by Spyderco founder Sal Glesser, is very solid and easy to control.
The blade of the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is made from CPM S110V-steel. A stainless type of steel that is very popular amongst enthusiasts. With a very thin grind, a perfect slicer. S110V is also called a type of super steel. The extreme wear resistance makes sure that this knife stays sharp for a very long time. We recommend you to be careful with sideways movements, this type of steel can namely chip in case of abuse. Of course this will make sure your knife also lasts longer.
Spyderco Paramilitary 2: an ergonomic success story
Spyderco produces knives that should be used not looked at. And yet the Paramilitary 2 is amazing to look at. At the same time, however, the ergonomics are amazing as well. Designer Sal Glesser knows really well what works and what doesn't, you can tell when you look at this successful model.
