Impulse Sale proved correct...




The M390 steel Spyderco Para Military 2 shown on our forum just hit me
right between the eyes.

So, I get to you-tube and there are many reviews on this knife. This influenced
me to buy the knife. The M390 have been sold out.

I bought a S30V from AGRussell. This is my first 3 1/2" blade for EDC.
It is a slicer not a pry bar. This is a seriously nice knife

Someone help me with pic's of the Spyderco Para M-2 plus
your opinion on this knife.

It is small and thin, a great pocket slicer. With sparing, 'normal' (opening mail, cutting up boxes, tape, string whatever) use, I doubt it will need to be sharpened for a long time to come. I have the CTS-XHP and S35VN versions.

For the longest time I was on the fence about spending the money on this knife. When I did and saw what I got I was sold for life!

Mine is in S30V and I have only recently felt the need to sharpen it. I use it every day since I bought it earlier this year to cut anything from cardboard and box tape to rope/cord and food. Not two days ago I batoned down some firewood and today whiddled an ambi-safety notch into some rosewood grips, still shaves too!

I wouldn't go so far as calling it a miracle steel, but S30V is very capable of holding an edge and easy to sharpen, although it takes more time and care to do.

I love my Spydercos and always will.
