Topic: Manix 2 or the para 2? Which is your favorite?

I traded my manix xl for another military, The weight wasnt an issue, however the pocket clip placement was and with that "pinky guard" sticking out of your pocket it just makes it akward to carry. Its nowhere near as comfortable in various grips as say a military, it was a quality knife and i loved...
