Hi all! I've been hard researching these two for a few weeks now and my head is spinning. I'm looking for a backup/alternative use knife to my ZT 0562CF for when I feel the ZT is too big or overboard (usually cutting something in public like at a restaurant - dull butter knives are no bueno). I don't mind the weight or size of the paramilitary 2 since it's almost exactly the same handle and blade length as the ZT, but I'm attracted to the smaller overall package of the para 3 - and it looks a little less threatening. I have a chance to purchase either one at the same price as each other, but I don't want to buy both. Does anyone have any insight on these two they could please share?
