    I have that exact same Para 2,dark blue with S110V. It's an awesome knife. The blade holds a nice sharp edge but for touching up,which is very seldom,I stick it in my KME sharpener and run the diamond plates through a progression.

    Too many to list but three stand out as most often finding their way into my pocket: a Dozier 3’ folding hunter with ironwood scales (D2, of course), a flat ground large Sebenza (S30V) and a small fixed Burke forged EDC (52100 carbon).The two folders have been all over the world with me; the Burke is only a few years old so hasn’t seen as much use, though it is my current favorite.

    There seem like a lot of votes for the Spydy paramilitary; put me down for a thumbs up to its big brother. I’ve used my military for about twenty years, and while they’ve upgraded the steel over the years, that old model still cuts like a beast.

    Between the Para 2 and the Para 3 , I can never figure out which one that I like the best.That's why I have both.My Native 5 sure is beautiful performer too.

    Another Chinese made pocket knife arrived. This one isn't a clone of an anything, as far as I can tell.

    Well built, tight, perfect alignment, came out of the box quite sharp but with a tiny bit of edge re profiling needed near tip for aesthetics. Opens with a good snap, but not so much as to have the recoil try to take it out of your hand. Lock button was gritty to start with, lubrication and a little use has it smoothed down some.

    440C steel claimed, that has been verified in USA by XRF testing. Haven't seen a US hardness test report on this model, but other knives tested from Ganzo have been in spec with company listing (claimed to be 58 RHC).

    And there is that extra little button on the side...
