Sounds good. How about two VIDEO comparisons to accompany the pictures?

Why the silver clip on the mini? Was this a swap out?

Can I request a comparison between a Rookie, and either (or both) of the Jess Horn sizes?

Thanks in advance to anyone reading who has those models.

Honestly, I love them both, but the Ouroboros is such a great design that if I had to chose one or the other it would win. In my mind they are only comparable in size, lock type and colour. The Ouroboros is the more refined design by far. The Para 3, while still an excellent design, relies heavily on the ergos of the Para 2 which started out as a larger knife. Like I said, love both.

I think I'm gonna have to get an Ouroboros. It's just so unique looking. It also looks like it would make a good wharnie..

Here's a shot I took when I got my Ouroboros, shows a few other models for people to compare to. (Forgot a Native...)

Requesting the Tatanka next to a Millie, Para 2 or Police. Anyone here own one? Haven't heard much chatter on this model since it launched.

I am sure someone will beat me to it, but i have one (Tatanka) in the mail. :) Expected to land by the end of the week. I did handle one in Tokyo and it is a brute! Although a nice one.

Awesome! If no one else posts one by then, I'd really appreciate if you could post yours!

Larry, you'll love it. My favourite outdoors Spydie. A beast, but a friendly one.

Vivi, I posted some pics of it, page 2 of this thread. No Police, but with Ulize. Similar size as the Police, or about...

Can someone post a comparison of the Para 3 and a Manix 2?

Thanks, I overlooked that. Exactly what I wanted. Makes me even more tempted to pick one up :)

Oh wow, that makes the PM3 look like a 3 finger grip behind the choil. Bit smaller than I expected. Para 2 already feels a hair small to me.

Just fair warning, while it is a nice shot of a couple of cool knives, your perspective there may have created a skewed size comparison. Whatever knife you have in front there (closest to camera) when shooting on an angle like that will always appear larger. ;)
