Daveho, I don't think that you will be disappointed. I recently got the CF PM3 and love it. I also have the s30 version and carry it all the time, it's up to the EDC chores and then some. Oh yeah, you might want to get an MXG clip for your knife. I think it improves the looks and ergos of the PM 3.Daveho wrote: ↑Sun Mar 11, 2018 3:08 amWell I just sent through payment for a para3, I know this is kinda a love/hate kinda model but this will be a few firsts for me;
-first compression lock
-first Golden made spyderco
Personally on paper it sounds perfect and that blade shape is really appealing in my eyes.
I’ve got a standard black g10 s30v guy on the way, picked him up at a great price used.
The action on my BBS P3 was a bit sluggish at first too. I just backed the pivot screw off a 1/8 of a turn (maybe less) and now it's perfect.
Hey Dave, I’m of a similar mind on it. Who knows, maybe I’d like it better if it rode a bit deeper but I would have never noticed the “issue” if I hadn’t read people talking about it here. I’ve had no issues with it feeling uncomfortable walking or sitting or anything else so as long as you aren’t concerned with “discreet carry” I suspect you’ll be happy with it the way it is.Daveho wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2018 1:13 pmShall do!
It’s going into an express bag today so I should see it tomorrow.
I have to say, while I prefer a deep carry I don’t theoreticaly mind the shallowness of the para3 as long as it dosnt impinge my range of movement I’m not fussed.
As I see it I’m either at work so having a knife isn’t an issue or I’m out not the world and I can put the knife in my pack or wear a long shirt.
You are absolutely right about Casey, I emailed him and he got back to me the next day and my PM 3 clip is on the way. Don't do what I did and assume their not in stock just because they aren't listed on his site.TriggerThumb wrote: ↑Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:39 pmCase lynch developed a special clip for the para 3, offset to allow access to the lanyard hole. Just get his email from his site. He responded same day for me, shipped my clip next day. Exponentially more value than mxg clips imo, considering his level of customer service and attention to detail. But I have 2 mxg clips and love them as well. Just not as personal of an experience for the same amount of money.
