Spyderco Para Military 2

Best Folding Knife Blade

Why people love it

• Blade can withstand hardcore use in any environment

• One-handed opening, even with gloves on

• Lightweight, compact, and beautifully sharp

Most durable blade on the market, easy to open with one hand, tactical design, 4-way clip, high quality materials, slim clip point for detailed work, durable compression lock, and great for both use at home and on the job.

Stiff action and hard to open and close.


Performance: This is a folding knife built to last! With S30V steel blade can stand up to use in every climate condition: wet, dry, hot, cold, freezing, windy, rainy, etc. It's a blade built to last, and it's perfect for use on the job (EMT, firefighter, military, law enforcement) as well as at home.

The knife itself is lightweight and compact, with a 3.44-inch blade (shorter than average) that can slice through anything. It holds its edge beautifully, and you'll find that is VERY sharp right out of the factory. Thanks to the clip point, you can use it for any detailed work.

Features: This is a great little knife packed with features. The 4-way clip allows you to store it in any pocket, where it's easy to grab with either hand. The tactical design allows you to take it apart and put it back together—perfect for when you need to deep clean it. 

The G-10 laminate scales on the handle will keep it gripped solidly in your hand. You'll love the one-handed opening, made possible by the Spyderco Round hole built into the back of the blade. The hole is large enough for even gloved fingers to fit into it. However, be warned: the action is stiff, and the blade is more difficult to open/close than you'd expect.

Price: At $126, this is one of the pricier items on the list. However, the high price tag is worth it if you want a knife that will last for years to come. Few blades can match the quality of this one, and the design is convenient, compact, and durable.
