    I’d love to know which PM2 or Para 3 sprints/exclusives are people’s favorites. So many good ones. I love the smooth G10/Cruwear Para 3 from KC. That said, I have done some very hard things to my Para 3 with Rex45 and it has held up incredibly well. Actually don’t fully understand how it has taken so much abuse.

    Who has an all time favorite? Could be for aesthetics, toughness or both.

    It's hard to pick favorites. I would say first the PM2 in M4/CF, second the PM2 in jade/satin M4, and third the PM2 Blurple S110V.

    I agree with the above poster. The KW M4 CF PM2 is perhaps the best all around that I have seen or owned by far. The DLT M390/20cv comes next. But, every PM2 is a good PM2. I carry the s30v DLC digicam one the most.

    Well lets see . . .
    There is the all black Para2 . . . BUT . . . it's too pretty/cool to actually use. I must keep it pristine. OK, ok and it's not a sprint or exclusive.

    Then there is the Camo Para2 with DLC blade . . . now THAT is a classic Spyderco, a classic knife ! Just look at that thing. I love to use it. Any mark it gets on it it takes in stride and it has the best pivot of any of my Para2s. Love that thing !
    But it's not a sprint or exclusive either (got to build up some suspense) . . .

    But if I'm going to be truthful . . . theeeeeeee ONE for me has got to be the Para2 with alien green scales and M4 blade alloy. When I'm using this one it is like I came home from a long time away and sat down in my easy chair. It's like this one was made for me.
    Weird colored handle that I think is great looking in it's outer space alienness and the M4 . . . ohhhhhhhh the M4; my dream blade material.

    Para3 ? ? ? what's that ?
    No hahahaha I'm kidding; some day I might get one just to see what all THAT is about.

    DLT red/m390 PM2 and the BHQ jade/dlc m4 are my two favorites.

    I just put my 20CV PM2 with black DLC blade and tan scales (from DLT) through the ringer in a seven week field exercise and it performed magnificently. All my buddies were rocking dull blades or were borrowing mine. By the end I had a couple of rolls, but most of the edge could still slice paper.

    Out of the stock options I like the BBS blue/ dlc m390 and CS orange/ dlc cts-xhp the most. I like having some color in the handles and a ss dlc blade.
    But...since I don't really care if they carry a warranty, or about the resale value....

    I've got 5 PM 2's, currently I can't decide which one is my favorite, so it's safe to say I've got 5 favorites.

    I also forgot about the REC para 3 exclusive with the od green and copper/tan dlc blade. I'm still down for a Para 2 of that one.
