JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
I have been carrying the Spyderco Para Military 2 for about a month now. I use it at some point every day. It is absolutely beautiful! I love the handle, I love the size, and I love the weight. You know what I love the most though? Yup...that's right...the MADE IN THE USA label! It is the perfect daily carry. Here's a quick peek at the specs:
length overall 8.281 " (210 mm)
blade length 3.438 " (87 mm)
blade steel CPM S30V
length closed 4.812 " (122 mm)
cutting edge 3.078 " (78 mm)
weight 3.9 oz. (111 g)
blade thickness .141 " (3.5 mm)
handle material G-10
Now the Para Military model has been in the Spyderco family since 2010. Since then however, the G10 handle has been narrowed, there's a slightly thinner profile, and there's a new Bushing Pivot System that keeps the opening and closing of the blade smooth and fluid. The ergonomics make the Para Military 2 really comfortable in the pocket and in the hand, and I am amazed how sharp the blade is and how sharp the blade is staying after all the use.
If you guys are looking for a good knife for your daily carry, something to through in your pack, or a sharp work knife, give this one a look! The Spyderco Para Military 2 is a great option and don't forget...made right here in Golden, Colorado U.S.A.
