Re: Why the Para2 over the Millie?

Colorado law sort of puts a 3.5 inch limit on us here. I love both and own multiple versions of both. I regularly carry both. I rarely find that I need the extra blade length for EDC and I am not a self defense knife guy either. If I need to defend myself I don't think half an inch of blade will ch...

Re: Sharpening: convex or bevel?

For me this depends more on the blade grind and steel type than mere choice. If a steel is more capable of holding an edge at thinner angles/grinds, then I would be much more likely to convex it. I know this seems kind of contradictory since axe blades are convex, but for me I don't like the insane...

Re: Best way to fix a chipped edge?

If it is the very tip itself that is chipped you can grind the spine down. If it is not the tip itself you will need to sharpen it out. If it is really bad just let it go away with routine sharpenings. If it isn't that bad just sit down and sharpen till it's gone. Can you post a pic? I agree. Take ...

Re: Pm2 lock position

Later lockup would in theory be a little more secure but to answer your question pragmatically, neither. They are the same. I actually prefer early lockup as it gives more room to wear and I find that complocks with late lockup pinch my finger when I open them. On a comp lock I will take early over...

Re: Pm2 lock position

Thank you for your response. I'm not concerned about the efficacy of the PM2 locking system, nor feeling obsessed by ultimate lock-strength... I know the reliability would be the same. I was just curious about the configuration. The pinching on my flaky skin is between the lock bar and the left part...

Re: Pm2 lock position

.....To folding or breaking.
On a engineering point a view, which settings offer more resistance or strength ?
(Due to the position between the elements on this mechanism....)
Thank you

Pm2 lock position

Hi. (I did a quick search but couldn't find the right answer)

Which setting offer more resistance ?
Closer to the edge or to the center of the stop pin ?!
