This distinctive expression of the Para Military 2 combines all the proven qualities of the best-selling standard version of this model with Carpenter® steel’s state-of-the-art Micro-Melt® Maxamet® blade steel.

Maxamet is an extremely hard high-speed powdered tool steel developed specifically for use in the rollers in Carpenter’s steel mills. It possesses properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels and approach those of cemented carbides—the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. Spyderco is one of only a handful of companies to master the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat, and grind this demanding material to yield reliable, high-performance knife blades. We are now proud to offer it in selected models made in our U.S. factory in Golden, Colorado.

This knife's full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade takes full advantage of Maxamet's qualities, offering an unparalleled combination of strength, low-friction cutting performance, edge retention, and point utility. It is housed in a handle featuring dark gray textured G-10 scales and nested stainless steel liners that form the foundation of its high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism. A versatile four-position pocket clip and generously sized lined lanyard hole complete the package and support all possible carry preferences.
