Spyderco Paramilitary D2 Foliage Green
I haven’t picked up a new Spyderco in a while, but every time I walk into the local knife shop, I see all their Spydercos displayed, and after a while I just can’t help myself. This time it was a Foliage Green Paramilitary that caught my eye, in the limited edition CPM D2 steel configuration. This is a very cool version of the Paramilitary!
This version of the Paramillie is even better, offering the super tough D2 semi-stainless steel and a cool foliage green G-10 handle, this bad boy is sure to hit the spot. It is offered in a limited edition run of 1200 peices I think, if memory serves (sometimes, it doesn’t!).
The full flat grind on the blade gives it a really nice thin edge, great for slicing, and gives it a very nice clean look. And as with all Spydies, the Paramilitary pops hair out of the box. Pocket clip is not reversable on this one, it is attached for right-hand tip-down carry only. It can, of course, be removed.
Lanyard hole is reinforced, and this model is torx-screw contruction. The blade bears Sal Glesser’s signature, and this particular model is made in their Golden, Colorado production facility.
Any paramilitary is a great knife, but this model in the superior D2 Steel with the unique G-10 scales is definately a step above, and gives you a bit more character than a standard issue Paramillie. Definately a great choice for any fan of Spyderco.
