    Worried about my 1st PM2

    That I won't want to carry my other knives anymore. O well, I guess there's worse problems.

    Yea I'm in the same boat, after manipulating compression lock, it's hard to go back to back lock.

    I had that problem for a loooooong time. Then I got stuck on the Manix 2 for a minute, then (and now) it's the Yojimbo 2. It's partly because I like the wharnie blade, partly because I love the compression lock, but mostly because I love the ergonomics. If they ever bring out a Yojimbo with the same handle but a Para 2 or Manix 2 style blade, I probably won't ever carry another knife after it.

    Official plea to Sal: Can we PLEASE get a DLC Yojimbo 2? PLEASE!!?

    I could be happy with just a Para 2 and a Caly 3.5 forever. But that doesn't stop the collection from growing.

    As much as I'm looking forward to my para the sage 1 will still get time. Honestly I don't expect the para to beat the sage out in f&f. If be amaZed.

    I do think the manix 2 xl will loose all it's time most likely. But who knows it's is the best ergos I've ever felt in MY hand.

    Don't worry, your other knives will wait patiently for you

    Every thought of carrying more than one knife at a time?

    I do when I hunt. I carry a pe and a pacific salt SE. But not every day. Seems like too much pocket room

    I just got my first Para2, camo handle, satin blade. One thing everyone neglects in their reviews is to focus on the weight. It's a feather compared to other blades in the same size or even smaller. I just don't know how they do it. Anyone can throw g10 and s30v together, but Spyderco really put them both together in a way that is match made in Heaven.

    I'm carrying right now the Para2, which doesn't fit with my weather EDC, during Winter I'm supposed to carry the heavier blades. But I can't put the Para2 away just yet.

    You are spot on. I feel it's more in the manix 2 xl category than the plain manix 2 and it makes the xl feel like a brick!
