    For defense carry: An overbuilt, and high quality build of a CQC8... with compression lock. Don't care too much about steel, just make it a "top quartile" stainless with a black coating and a symmetrical grind.

    Utility: A Military-ish folder with a better handle-to-blade length ratio, a full flat grind but with a much stouter grind in the tip area (which would require a revised set of grind lines). S90V or S110V at Rc61 or harder.

    small Utility blade like Spyderco cat with Elmax steel blade and compression lock, completely over built but nice with deep carry clip and g10 handles. Or sprint run of Spyderco Cat with White G10 handles and M4 / m390 blade would be sufficient ^^

    A fully serrated Para 2 with a wave. The perfect weapon retention knife for weak side carry.

    A Gayle Bradley in Elmax. A stainless version is needed, as is more Elmax.

    Something pinged the radar today, that I'd love. Orange G-10 Native Slip-it. I've seen pics - I'd take two.

    I think an Ayoob with a full-flat grind, CPM-3V, peel-ply CF scales with no liners, ball lock, tip-up wire clip. Lean and mean.

    I’ve seen lots of reviews on the Paramilitaries before and never been very interested but now it’s growing on me!
    I believe it will be a folder I will buy in the future.
    However, both have a few draw backs for me.

    On the Paramilitary:

    • The tang of the blade sticking out
    • The bottom of the handle sticking out also – much prefer the handle on the
    Para 2

    On the Paramilitary 2:

    • Blade length – too big for my EDC

    So what I would really like would be a Paramilitary 3!!!:D
    A smaller Paramilitary 2, really!
    3” s30v blade, same design and smaller handle.
    If it had these specifications it would be a knife I would buy in a heart beat!

    Military with a CF/ ti framelock and s110v steel(part of my hopes the m390 sprint is a CF/framelock)
    i would also love to see the military in 3v with a reinforced tip.

    Some kind of a Phil Wilson super folder I think! That would be my order.

    If you can talk Phil into designing one that would be the ticket. :D
