Just received my PPT. I'd always been intrigued by this model, but was put off by the weight and thought the contoured scales, although very cool, would be to cumbersome for carry. Then, when Spyderco announced it was discontinued, I had to get one.
First off, I know the term "scary sharp" gets thrown around a lot on the forum, but this thing really is. Did the obligatory paper cutting test, and it didn't cut so much as whisper cleanly through the paper. Shhhh, shhhh, shhhh.
Also slipped it in the pocket when I went out for a couple minutes last night to see how it carried. Couldn't believe a 5 oz. plus knife could feel so light in the pocket. Seriously, it was like it wasn't even there. I guess that's because of the deep-carry clip.
I will say, however, I find the contoured scales, although not too thick for comfortable pocket carry, a little sharp in the hand. I guess I'll man up enough eventually not to notice.
Can't believe they're discontinuing this product.
