In the realm of cutting-edge design and functionality, the Spyderco Military 2 stands as a testament to innovation and evolution. Crafted by none other than Spyderco co-founder Sal Glesser with input from his son Eric Glesser, this exceptional folding knife pays homage to its iconic predecessor, the original Military Model, while forging ahead with significant enhancements.
For over 25 years, the Military Model has remained an enduring symbol of excellence within the cutlery industry. The Military 2 continues this legacy, promising a tool that's more refined and capable than ever before.
Gone is the LinerLock of the past; in its place, the Military 2 proudly boasts Spyderco's renowned Compression Lock® mechanism. This revolutionary innovation not only enhances the knife's strength but also ensures safer, single-handed operation. It's a true game-changer for those who demand reliability and precision.
The stainless steel liners at the heart of this knife have been meticulously crafted, providing unparalleled structural integrity. They serve as the bedrock for the four-position pocket clip, offering you the flexibility to carry your knife just the way you prefer – left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down.
The skeletonized liners are ingeniously nested within peel-ply-textured G-10 scales. This thoughtful design maintains a slender profile while preserving the knife's open-backed construction, resulting in a lightweight companion that doesn't compromise on performance.
As the proud successor to an iconic design, the Military 2 carries the torch forward with unwavering dedication. Whether you're on the front lines or simply need a reliable tool for everyday tasks, the Military 2 is ready to serve.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
