Just got mine today. And this Para 3 is super nice. Edge is really sticky sharp, and it has a nice free dropping action. A little lock stick but that will wear in.
But the most controversial thing on these are the smooth scales. But the moment i handled the knife i was in love with them. They feel really nice in the hand. I really don't need the peel-ply on a small knife like this. Grip on it is good enough that it won't slide out of your hand. The finish is matte, but i can clearly see the fiberglas weave in the G10 epoxy. Even at low light. Looks really nice to me. I saw some complaints about the PM2 when it dropped. I don't know if it was any different. But i really like the finish and don't see the need to polish it. Another benefit of the smooth scales is that you can easily clean them. Just a simple wipe and dust and dirt are gone. Peel-ply scales can really hold onto dirt. And with these scales the knife goes really easy in and out of the pocket and won't be eating up your jeans.
I have to say i'm a fan of smooth G10 now and wouldn't mind seeing it on more knives. It may even become my preferred G10.

Shows discontinued on the store page now. So there won't be anymore batches it seems.
I'll be getting mine tomorrow. Customs took their sweet time on this one.
Maybe they had some boxes needing opening.
Haha I'd never get it back then.
