I like my basic G10 Para 3, but I prefer a bit longer blade on a one-hand opener. But for some reason, the same blade length doesn’t bother me as much on the Delica, for example. I don’t know why. It feels to me that during use, because of its short, thick blade, the Para 3 can attract juice and gunk more readily than a longer blade; but for some reason, I feel the Delica is a bit less apt for that to happen, and if it does, it’s simpler to clean out.
That is why I prefer the Military over the Para 3. I like the PM 2 over the Para 3 as well.
I generally prefer tip-up carry, but the Military’s tip-down position doesn’t bother me. I had to change my Police 4 LWT to tip-down, because in the tip-up position, the textured FRN was tearing up my pocket material, while tip-down it doesn’t. That knife is also fine in tip-down position. If I reach into my pocket and pinch around the thumb hole with my thumb and index finger, the Military (and the P4 LWT) is easy to access and pull out (I don’t like saying “deploy,” because it makes me feel like a military/tactical wannabe).
