Seconded, on both counts. She’s fairly “understanding” when I buy different knives, but that many that are shaped the same..... :eek:

Let's just say that I did my fair share of intercepting packages and smuggling them into the house. If my wife ever joins this forum, there's a good chance the resulting crime photo will also include all 25 variants of the Para 3, but this time sticking out from the deceased.

It's the same Maxamet Para3 with Dark Gray G-10 which came out in March 2018. Sometimes the "P" for PlainEdge is in there and sometimes it's not.

At least it'll have a 2019 date on the blade.
