    +1.

    I have found that a waved blade can get fouled on a duty holster, and can slice up a cover garment.

    ETA- That being said, I really dig the concept, and often contemplate a waved Delica.

    I have waved Yojimbo and Yojumbo (add on attachments) no issues thus far. With the Matriarch, I've cut some clothing. I think the thumb hole is good enough.

    I think I am leaning Para 2...I wish I could find a para 2 with a spyderedge. Anyone have any leads? I see most are sold out everywhere.


    ETA: So I happen to make a living climbing in and out of fire engines about 20 times a shift. I have had issues in the past with the standard spyderco pocket clip and it getting caught on my radio, doors etc during a 24 hour tour. Has anyone had luck with aftermarket clips? I see Lynch Clips make a titanium version that appears to be WAY more durable and less bend-resistant for about $20. I think I may give one a shot and toss it on an endela and see how it goes before diving head first into a para 2.

    Thank you for the recommendation, based on that and some light perusing of the Spyderco subreddit (oddly the least cringey knife-centric forum Iíve found, but still pretty cringey) I ordered a Para 3. Also ordered a waved dragonfly and a H1 dragonfly; successfully resisted a Matriarch 2. So a good cover the bases trio and Iíll pass the Delica along to the better half to replace her current folder.

    Now to, hopefully, throw some other blades on the FSOT subforum.

    I found my Lynch Clip to bend easier, not hold as well, and gets caught on things easier because it's a little bigger.

    We could isolate Russia totally from the world and maybe they could apply for membership after 2000 years.

    I have found these clips to be superior to the factory clips.

    I only have one of their clips...on a ZT...but I really like it. It was a nice upgrade.

    Either a lower cargo pocket on your pants or a belt mounted Kydex sheath
