    I have bought a lot of spydercos used, of the 9 or more that I've bought new they were all VERY sharp out of the box.

    Should I get mine all out for a dark green photo shoot? Plus, you missed the coolest one - the Forest Green Dragonfly!

    Is the halpern Ti forest green the same color as this para? Do you guys know? I am about to order some more mule scales and was wondering. Gonna order the forest green option 5 anyway but was curious.

    Got mine today!

    As my first PM2, I'm still getting used to the compression lock but the more I play with it, I think we're gonna be good friends.

    As if you guys didn't already know what it looks like...

    Thank you sir! I love that little guy, third Spydie I ever bought... My only issue with it is that I miffed up the lanyard tube a bit reassembling it after the dye job, and sticks out on one side a little...

    Glad to see that everyone else is enjoying this second round of the mean green PM2!

    I can't speak to that exact comparison but I will definitely say that it is grippier than the G10 on my Cruwear Military. Quite grippy indeed.

    I didn't do a side by side comparison but it looked the same to me. They're both relatively fine-pattern peel-ply.

    The green is 2x more grippy than the G10 on my satin one pictured above.

    I got the two side by side in bright sunlight. I would say the texture is the same, but the color is slightly different. You'd only notice side by side in good light, but the 2014 knife is a little more green and the 2013 version is slightly grayer. You can see the color difference in the picture in Henry's post directly above. The G10 texture looks different but in person I would say they're not, or at least not enough to make any difference in grip or wear on your clothes or anything like that.
