Your very welcome and it’s a bento box exclusive and a little more then others but I think worth the extra amount for the blade steel if you can swing it .Also the quality on this run seems to be very good from what I’ve read .Thanks, will have a look. I do like that Zome Green version though (VG10). Wont be ordering untill Monday, so I've a couple of days to browse around. Knew they made different versions but didn't realise there was so many.
My go to is Oriental Top Ramen with some Jasmine rice when I’m over my knife budgetI also had my eye on the Para 3 LW. But with so many recommendations on here I swayed towards the Delica. Could maybe swing both I suppose, but will be living on pizza for a month.
Reasons to get the Delica first:Thanks, will have a look. I do like that Zome Green version though (VG10). Wont be ordering untill Monday, so I've a couple of days to browse around. Knew they made different versions but didn't realise there was so many.
I don't see your posts as Delica bashing. Youve presented arguments for your POV and that's how it should be. Unlike another forum members 'drive by' comments of which your posts are the exact opposite, as you explain your POV instead of just saying that the Delica sucks.I’m not trying to bash the Delica because even with what I mentioned I’d still like to get another in hopes the next one will be a better example then the previous ones . I just think between the two the OP would be happier the para 3 LW . I’m sure we can all post our opinions of negatives and positives on both and have one favor one over the other . I’ve just never experienced a bad Para 3 nor is this para 3 LW and that says a lot in my book since I’ve had many Para 3’s since there release .
Congrats and please update with your thoughts after you spend sometime with them .Couldn't make up my mind. So ordered both Para 3 LW and the Delica in Zome Green. I am now a pauper for a month.
Got my order in today as the Para 3 LW seems to go out of stock quite a lot. Looking forward to getting them, they should be here midweek.
Thanks for everyones help.
If I had read this earlier I would have suggested that you buy the Delica over the P3. I have big hands and the Delica fits, but the Paras, any of them, do not feel good. There is a reason the Delica has lasted so many years.Well they came on Wednesday and spent a few days with them. Love them both.
The Delica has a more solid lock, better in hand (for me at least), and is the better slicer.
But the PM3 has a bit better steel, better pocket clip, and by far the better fidget factor. I sway back and forth as to what one I like best and just can't decide. I'm just glad I have both really.
I have Benchmades and Kizers, but these put me firmly in the Spyderco camp and I've actually been thinking about the next one.
I was always told not to eat rabbit in the summer because of parasitesJust something fun to post! Have a rabbit destroying the garden situation so my son and I took one out. I used his cricket rifle with a cci stinger, deck shot from 100 yds. Lol. Delica processed entire rabbit which was a dam big rabbit.. after all he was full of my vegetables. He will be roasted over a campfire within the next few nights. This delica is probably 5 yrs old and handled it like a boss, bones and all. Granted it’s not an elk or anything but definitely did well.https://imgur.com/a/9E61cAu
