What were they thinking with only 27 variations.

Good collection, and nice reference thread. I have just recently become a believer in the Para 3. When I get a new knife, I always try to use it some and keep it easily accessible so I can pick it up or leave it be. Once I started setting the Para 3 out, it has been the one I have been grabbing the most.

I haven’t purchased a LW yet. Probably will though.

While I certainly am not as big a fan as others here -- I am very excited to get my hands on & try the two new steels, SPY27 & S45VN, and although I already have the standard Para3 in Rex45, the LW version has to be had as well, I mean, come on, it's Rex45! I think regardless of delivery date, the wait will be worth it, I mean two brand new steels stacked back to back is a rare & wonderful treat I think.... ;)

Just guessing here but it's probably the Para 3 LW SE black blade. It's in the catalog but hasn't been released yet.

That makes more sense than an exclusive se. Guess I need more sleep lol

When there is a Para 3, why would you want a 2?

Ok, I have a few, but still. :o

Ha. Well, as much as I can appreciate the Para 3, the PM2 is where my heart's at. Clip placement on the three is a bit awkward for me and I enjoy the extra blade length and roominess of the handle. If size were an issue for me I usually switch to a different model. Frankly the Para 3 confuses me a bit...it's not different enough from the 2. That and I have an 18 or so peice collection that I started well before the Para 3 came around. ;) All that said, the lightweight 3 is something I really like a lot. Really looking forward to how the LW version matures blade steel and color combination wise.

Has anyone ever noticed that the edge of insanity runs very close to the comments of the majority?
