    OK, I love the Para 3. I love the blade shape and size. I love the compression lock. I am not in love with rough G-10. Oh, it has good traction for my grip, but with the clip it is tough to retrieve from my pocket. So I tied a lanyard or fob for it to hang out of my pocket.
    I imagine the Para 3 LW would solve this problem also.

    Emersons have quite rough G10, so what I do with mine is buff each scale (still attached) on an old pair of jeans for about 15 minutes apiece while watching TV.

    This tames the G10 down a bit without reducing its effectiveness, basically simulating weeks/months of pocket carry. And unlike sanding it doesn't produce any G10 dust.

    I've done this to Spydie G10 as well, and it works great. Might be worth considering. :)

    Yes the Para 3 LW slides in and out of your pocket with ease . Also sits deep in the pocket :thumbsup:
    I run a lanyard on most of my knives as it makes it even easier to snatch from your pocket .
