I have a Para2 and while I like it well enough I never thought it was the be-all, end-all knife for me. I now have a Gayle Bradley folder and a Vallotton. I like both of these but I got them because they were each different and each had its own unique features. I just got a Manix 2 today, the older version with solid liners. I'm not really wowed by it and I don't know if I will put it in the EDC rotation or not. (mini review
I do like the handle shape, I prefer tip-down, it is considerably heavier than the Para2, the lock is a little harder to disengage than I would prefer, and I'm not sure if I like the hollow ground blade or not. I was interested in getting the XL version, now I'm not so sure. I am interested in getting a Military. I have never held one yet, it might be my favorite, or might not.
So based on my limited experience so far, I would say Para2.
