What were they thinking with only 27 variations.

Good collection, and nice reference thread. I have just recently become a believer in the Para 3. When I get a new knife, I always try to use it some and keep it easily accessible so I can pick it up or leave it be. Once I started setting the Para 3 out, it has been the one I have been grabbing the most.

I haven’t purchased a LW yet. Probably will though.

While I certainly am not as big a fan as others here -- I am very excited to get my hands on & try the two new steels, SPY27 & S45VN, and although I already have the standard Para3 in Rex45, the LW version has to be had as well, I mean, come on, it's Rex45! I think regardless of delivery date, the wait will be worth it, I mean two brand new steels stacked back to back is a rare & wonderful treat I think.... ;)

Kevin from keithkevinken youtube channel just mentioned he's getting a se PM3 soon. I wonder which dealer it's for? Certainly don't remember seeing a full se PM3 in the catalog but I could be wrong

Just guessing here but it's probably the Para 3 LW SE black blade. It's in the catalog but hasn't been released yet.

That makes more sense than an exclusive se. Guess I need more sleep lol

When there is a Para 3, why would you want a 2?

Ok, I have a few, but still. :o

Ha. Well, as much as I can appreciate the Para 3, the PM2 is where my heart's at. Clip placement on the three is a bit awkward for me and I enjoy the extra blade length and roominess of the handle. If size were an issue for me I usually switch to a different model. Frankly the Para 3 confuses me a bit...it's not different enough from the 2. That and I have an 18 or so peice collection that I started well before the Para 3 came around. ;) All that said, the lightweight 3 is something I really like a lot. Really looking forward to how the LW version matures blade steel and color combination wise.

To quote myself again: bigger is better! ;) The Para 3 is grrrrreat! The PM2 is greater!! :)
