    Looks to me like the majority is in favor of the Spyderco Petunia.

    If I say it enough, maybe it'll happen.

    The Combatant is a killer name!
    I'd vote for that.

    Yeah I tried that one but got no response either...
    Thought it fit right in with the armed forces nomenclature myself.

    Spyderco Petunia...hmmm...
    'Can I borrow your Petunia mate?'
    'I never leave the house without a Petunia in my pocket.'
    'I gave the wife a Petunia for her birthday.'

    Well, maybe...

    No sorry was a bad joke...as the military is a big folder, the para a smaller folder and this one even smaller......so the next level of protection and fighting force. Just bad joke nothing more and i apologize.

    Besides im now liking........ the napoleon, and the para mini.

    You guys need to agree on a name quickly so that Sal can print up the boxes and ship them out to us. All this indecision is taking way too long.

    I like that thinking. How about the 'Patrol' ?

    How about the Reservist? because we have the Military - Paramilitary 2 and the reservist/national guard...? haha I would buy a knife called the Spyderco Reservist or the Spyderco National Guard.

    or maybe even the Spyderco ROTC...

    If the new PM 3 is smaller than the PM 2, how about the Paramilitary Cadet?

    I actually think they should avoid using a military-style name for this knife. What they're doing is creating a knife that is just about perfect for the average joe. Legal in most jurisdictions ( < 3"), smaller and lighter than the military-themed knives, appropriately sized for typical everyday use. This has the potential to become one of their defining, ubiquitous knives going forward. A modern-day Delica. They need to choose a name that lets everyone know 'this knife is for you'.

    Something like that.

    I totally agree with you. This is an EDC, and I don't want to give the impression that the knife was designed as a weapon! It could be called Paratool for all I care!

    Yep, 100% spot on! That's why I think the military or combat-themed suggestions are so stupid.

    During a time of peace, a smaller version of the (para)military knife would suit one's needs.

    If spyderco has the mini- paramilitary and dragonfly under their belt- they will dominate the small EDC market. Benchmade's smallest blade is about 2.97 inches. That's still plenty large. If benchmade made a mini 940 Osborne, I'd be all over it.
