Which Para Military 2 do you love the most?

Postby HarleyXJGuy » Fri Sep 26, 2014 12:21 pm

Simple question that I am sure is near to a lot of our hearts.

Which Para Military 2 do you love the most and why?
On my radar: 110V Military, Police 4 and some sweet Rex 45 Military action.

Newest Spydies: S90v Ti Military, Pacific Salt and a special Kiwi.

BH 49 and Brock o Lee.

They are your favorite because of the color or steel? Maybe a combination of the two factors?

20CP for me. I honestly don't think I'd trade it for a S90V version, though I do like the scales more.

I like the CF S90V. It's one of my most used Para 2s. The steel and handle materials are great, and it wasn't so expensive that I don't want to use it (like the CPM154/S90V, which is the most expensive knife I own including CRK, etc.)

Love the pictures you guys are posting with your answers. Lets do more of that please.

Did not anticipate so many different models being selected to be honest.

By far my favorite of the ones I have tried. I do like S90V as well as the 204P, but the green really makes this one my favorite.

I prefer the blue one for a number of reasons
- thickness behind the edge (from the factory) is the thinnest of my 3 PM2's
- M390's edge retention is very good for what I do, maybe slightly less than S90V but sharpens easier
- very corrosion resistant - I often cut fruit, so its nice to rinse and forget
- at first I did not really care for the blue, but it blends in with the blue jeans I often wear
- I changed the clip for a deep carry Ti clip, which is perfect for discreet carry

I thought on of the better performing steels would lead the pack. Probably if I had thought more about it I should have figured people would go with one of the models they actually have.

Also I bet a number of votes will go to the one someone likes the looks of. Being that any of these blades are more then up to day to day tasks for some of us it might come to aesthetics in the end.

What always makes me laugh is wondering how many people vote for the S90V/CF version when they've never owned one, just because it's "the grail" or so people would have you believe.

Dark green gets my vote. Boutique steel and sweet G10 color for a scant 50 over the production version. Of course, I hardly notice much difference in my use, it's just cool to have a "different" steel and I like the color. I guess also knowing it was a limited run and that not everyone has one is nice too.

I've had them all except for the S90V/CPM154 laminate version, and I'm really enjoying the FG/Elmax version the best! I like the fine edge I can get on the Elmax, and I love the FG G-10.

S30V... 'Cause it's my first and somewhere in the mail right now! Bang for the buck though, can you really beat it?

Mostly due to color. I love the dark green.

Like Roger I have most of the Para's except the S90V and S90V laminate. The choice for me is easy.......the one I love the most, is the one I have in my pocket, or in my hand. ;)
