    PM 2, Military, Manix 2, Manix 2 XL. of these 4 I think the best form fitting scale is the Manix 2 XL. You can really wrap your hand around it. For a large knife it really doesn't feel that big in the pocket. When I carry I usually carry it with the regular Manix, I happen to like carrying matching sets when possible.

    I prefer the Manix (the lockback to be specific, the jimping on the CBBL version is a little over the top for me), but the Paramilitary feels great too.

    I agree with Lemon, the manix is a bit wide, a common thing with the leaf shaped blades. The width is what keeps it out of my pocket. Without considering width, they are both comfortable in hand.

    For me the PM2 has the best ergonomics. Possibly of any edc. I have medium size hands and wear a size large glove. I also like the Manix 2 and feel you can t go wrong with either.
    Overall I think the PM2 is one of the two best edc s on the market. The other is not the Manix2.

    I greatly prefer the grip of the Manix2 to the PM2. IMO , the handle of the Manix2 has a vastly superior shape and feel. The handle just fills my meaty paw like a custom glove. I also favor the blade of the Manix2.

    I agree with this^
    I am also very much a Manix XL fan. Hard to beat a Military for large hands though.
