If you go with the para 3 (which I would also recommend as a smaller g10 version of the knife you already like), then there's currently a brown/satin or brown/dlc version out now in s35vn steel. That's a very similar steel to s30v, but many would argue it's slightly better (slightly tougher than s30v, and just as easy to sharpen).
I will say that I've handled the BM bugout, and I think the scales feel much weaker and cheaper than the frn scales on a spyderco delica, for example. Delicas feel solid and indestructible, imo. So if you're open to trying the spyderco frn, you might look at a delica (or endela or endura if you want longer blades) or even a native 5 lightweight. If g10 is an absolute must, then a native 5 in g10 is also a great option.
