    I get sick to death of black knives, and I welcome all colors, including pink. But I don't care for the more strident pinks out there - I like a softer one like the Benchmade MiniGrip

    The pink on the PM2 is also a very nice shade. If the knife wasn't so long I would have purchased it - I did have a digi-camo one but like I said, the knife is too long for my hands. I really wish the Para3 came in the PM2 pink.

    I think some of the pink knives look pretty cool, they also appear less threatening to non knife people. I find it amusing that people don't bat an eye when I've been using my yellow H1 Spydercos yet get funny looks when using the same size knife with a black handle. Not that i bought my H1 knives to please others, i bought them just because i liked them.

    @Trigger's broom: Agreed. I've had that experience many times. Strangely though, I've also had people get full blown alarmed when I pull out a SAK Classic with a red handle. I mean really. A CLASSIC? Man have the :censored: become brainwashed!

    When a color costs less, I select it. It is arbitrary to call pink a female color and I am fine with it.

    You can find it on eBay via Central Valley Wholesale or through DLT Trading's webpage.

    In their defence, the closest I've come to accidentally stabbing another person was when I pulled out my Vic classic to cut a sausage in half for my kids. The combination of tiny size and greasy fingers caused it to spring out of my fingers towards my unsuspecting friend on the other side of the table. I put a tiny lanyard in it after that.

    No offense, but that seems to be an American problem. Yday i took my 0450 out and snapped it open for reasons. Ten people in an office around me, half of them at least actively watching, no one was batting an eye. Later on, one guy asked me to see it, price, model, source and nodded his head. Guess he was pondering to get one. End of story.

    Not so sure about that. Stories abound from the UK of similar thoughts!

    It's just a colour, but I personally don't fancy pink or purple. Still, a pink machete at the local pub would make me run faster than a black one...

    Now ya see, in my younger days I specifically liked items that had those two colors in combination! Drove my spouse nuts. We blamed it on my color blindness... Ya shoulda seen my favorite sneakers. Pair of very light weight Puma; nylon uppers; lime green with an electric blue 'swoosh' (no, not the Nike version. I did say PUMA!). One day I came home and those sneakers had vanished I tell you... Not a happy day in the homestead! LOL

    L'chaim!

    On the construction site my dad kept having arguments with subcontractors over which tools were his and which were theirs. He went to the supply store and bought some pink spray paint. Pink extension cords, hammer & screw driver shafts, etc, etc. Lots of construction guys are macho but not secure in their masculinity enough to use a pink tool. Problem solved from then on.

    Buy a pink knife and you don't have to worry about someone stealing your knife. ;)
