    Can anyone post a picture of one of Steve's Lil Para Delicas next to a Para 3? I'd love to see them side by side if anyone has both. Thanks!

    That's great, everyone. Thanks for the pictures. It's amazing how the Lil'Para mimics the lines of the Para3 with a lot less width in the pocket. I think it's time to start another Lil'Para project.

    That awkward moment when it turns out the Delica makes a better Paramilitary then the Paramilitary does; at least to my eye. Looks so much more streamlined, not so chunky.

    I'm thinking the same thing! Next set might get a mini Matriarch blade!
    Lol.... Not just to your eye.. and not just to my hand!

    I have both and love the lil para Delica! It's either the Delica or the Sage 5, in my pocket, daily..

    It's hugely better than the Para3. Not only less pocket fat but you can add a deep carry clip without covering the lanyard hole. The clip position on the Para3 is just horrible. Now Steve just needs to modify a Delica with a comp lock, lol.

    Haha, I was thinking the same thing, about the compression lock!

    Maybe Steve just needs a Para 3 sent to him, to address some things.. maybe figure out a wire clip setup, for it.

    I know I want to send him a Sage 5. Just for some scales... :)

    Thanks, all. I love the Li'l Para ergos and aesthetic, so it seemed the natural thing to do when I got the Wharnie version.

    With deep carry clip and paracord fob back on:

    Oh geeze. These scales would work on a Li'l Matriarch? I don't need to know that. :p I've been successfully talking myself out of getting the plain edge Bento Box Shop one, but if it could have Li'l Para scales, that could be a game changer.

    I'm probably the wrong person to try to do this. Hopefully someone else will come along with better/more appropriate shots shortly.

    Standard Delica and ParaMilitary 2 for comparison:

    Tried to get a shot of my grip using the PM2 choil, but it didn't come out great.

    Sorry. :eek:

    I'm not 100%.. I know my Matriarch 2, is a Endura handle.
    So my assumption is, the lil Matriarch, is a Delica handle..

    It would be So sick!!!

    I'll snag some pics when I get home in a few.

    AlwaysTomboy - That Wharnie is a pretty unique looking beast! Awesome!

    Boomer52 - Is there a price list or website someplace we can order this stuff? Such excellent mods for excellent blades.

    When grabbing ahold of the Lil Para Delica, it's like grabbing a PM2! Comfortable!!!
