I have become a bit of a Spyderco snob over the last year. I have carried a Paramilitary 2 for about the past four years now. I kept trying different folders but came back to my PM2. I'm at the point now that I don't even try anymore. There are so many variations of the PM2 out that if I get bored or want to try something new it's there is always something interesting and new to look at. At a starting price of $125 or so, you are not going to cry a river if it's lost and can easily be replaced.

The S30V steel is more than capable for everyday carry and if you want "better" there are tons of options. The only mod I did to mine is a deep carry clip.
