I am very pleased with my orange DLC pm2, it is awesome, and very good looking. I am not one to be sporting anything flashy or bright. But this thing in your pocket is nothing flashy, it's a lot of fun to have, use, and carry. The orange does get a little dirty with use, nothing some mild soap and water can't clean up. The DLC is really tough stuff and the black blade compliments the orange knife perfectly. It's a great color scheme. It's my first experience with the XHP, so far it is an amazing steel for me and what I use it for.
