    Looking at it like that, they were all number 1 actually.

    It's 1 of 300. And it says so on all of them

    Regardless, congrats OTS! Nice pair!

    Thanks all. Yes, they all have 1 of 300 etched on them.

    I picked em up off the 'bay.

    It's been about 2 yrs looking for these and being able to snag em'.

    Still looking for the Operation Enduring Freedom.

    Anxiously awaiting the new Native IV's.

    I picked up a D2 Para the other day along with a Ladybug.





    Great lockup on the D2 Para btw. The lock on this one moves over farther than on my S30V Para. It also seems to have a thicker washer on one side of the pivot and the locking liner doesnt have a hole milled in it near the base of the locking tab, like my S30V Para does. Hmm.

    I don't generally brag about my latest, but this time I have to. I won an eBay auction this week with what I considered a "throw away bid"...one that I just tossed in to keep everyone honest. I was shocked when I won, and even more shocked that there was money left on the table.

    My latest snag: red bone Spyderkey (with a cracked blade, but still...)



    Micarta C39 Dyad Jr. (chipped serrations, but it was destined to be a user anyway)



    and...

    Drumroll, please...

    C27S Jigged bone Jess Horn!

    Thanks! I never thought I would own one. They usually go for way more coin than I'm willing to part with.

    DRod,

    What's funny is if you loosen up the stop pin screws a tad, and then tighten one of them you can see the stop pin rotate. I take a sharpie and put a dot on the pin so I can see it move. I find that with the knife unlocked and with the blade open about half way I can tighten the screw for the stop pin that is furthest away from the compression lock. As I do that the stop pin rotates. I move it about 1/16" each time and then test the lockup. I have been able to get my lockup to be further over to the left (as looking down from the top) just by doing that.

    When I have it all set I open and lock the blade and push the blade downward onto some cardboard. This puts some pressure on the stop pin so it does not move when I tighten the screws. I put some Loctite on the stop pin screws and tighten it down a bit. Be careful not too tight or it will affect the action of the knife.

    I think that the machining of the stop pin has made it a bit eccentric. Maybe not on purpose but it is on most Para's I find.

    If you don't understand let me know and I'll try to make it more clear.

    Ill give that a shot. It locks up good and tight and fully engages the tang of the blade, but doesn't slide over as far as my D2 version. But yeah, next time I do a tear down cleaning, I'll give that a go, Thanks.

    Lonewolf Endura with Armorers tool.

    this knife serves 2 purposes for me

    1. my only handgun is a glock

    2. here in CA our assault rifles have to have the mags locked in but require a tool of some sort for reloading i thought this would be a great shooting knife


    really wish they made a delica like this so i could EDC it

    nice, full auto too or no ?

    i just now figured out why you said what you said, we can carry enduras, but i prefer the delica over the endura, it fits my hand like a glove, no legality involved in what i first said

    WHAT?!?! I would love to carry a fixed blade around in Texas, but us poor Californians have to stick to our little 2' inch pocket knives. People even give me looks for using my Ladybug
