I was alternating between a PM2 and an American Lawman, until a few weeks ago. Then I began carrying a Manix 2, switching between a lightweight and a g10. Great all around knife. In the last couple of weeks, I ve started dropping a small Hold Out 3 into my pocket in addition to the Manix 2 and using that for most of my work tasks. It s the first time Ive tried using a 3" blade for work. The little Hold Out is doing a great job. Maybe I m on the way to using a box cutter!?! I ll still carry a larger folder in addition to a smaller work blade in case a bigger cutting job occurs.
