It's almost comical, the difference between these two :)

The new clip doesn’t really pass the eye test when looking at it sitting out, but the function is really great and it looks nice and discreet clipped to my pocket.

Edit* I just want to clarify that when I said the clip didn’t meet the eye test, that this was not a reflection on MXG. It is exactly what I wanted and the workmanship is perfect. My first impressions were that the clip and knife combo looked a little weird and off balance compared to the factory clip. If it was all about aesthetics, I would keep the factory clip. It is just the nature of the beast when installing a deep carry clip to a PM2. I am actually starting to get used to the way it looks. I just had a little system shock.

Also, the clip was sold as a Para 3 clip. I was carrying the PM2 when I opened the package, so I went with it. I plan on buying one or two more, maybe of different configurations.

I was a little disappointed, at first, that the clip wasn’t shiny like the stainless hardware. But as I went through the day, I noticed that this matte color was less noticeable. After all, that’s one of the reasons for a deep carry clip. If I want to be blingy, I’ll grab the Advocate.

Any how, I just wanted to add a few things after carrying this knife for a day.

Here is another pic to show how it fits in the pocket.

Bloke, that roselli is awful pretty! Mora has a kids knife with more of a finger guard if that matters (at quite a lot less cost).

Cute kid! Doesn’t look like trouble at all!! :p
Hey Wood, yes, the Roselli is a lovely little knife. I have a Roselli Grandmother amongst other I could give him but they don’t have a finger guard and of coarse they have a point. The Mora blunt tip kids knives are great and if his enthusiasm for knives continues I’ll buy him one.

I’ll go with the Roselli Little Carpenter mainly because of it’s short blade length and small handle and pray he doesn’t cut himself for there’ll be hell to pay if he does.

He’s a handful no worries, without any sense of self preservation and a climbing machine so you can’t take your eyes off him for a moment though he’s very affectionate with a very pleasant and kind nature. :)

My very first Spydey ! The classic PM2. Came in yesterday morning, and spent a good half hour flicking it because it felt a little stiff out of the box.
Only problem so far is the clip screws feel glued in, I haven't managed to remove them to go tip up-blade out yet. Didn't try too hard because I wouldn't want to strip them.
Other than that, I like it a lot.
