IIRC, a February 2011 production run date was mentioned, and more talks were supposed to take place with Spyderco this week. I hope this happens. I'd really like an S30V Manix 2, and GITD would be very cool. Oh good. Hopefully by then whatever improvements to the CBBL (triggered by recent lock fail...

The rough choil area (or bump) seems to be the "new normal" in Enduras, based on my limited experience. I have a G10 Endura and it has perfectly machined choil area, very nicely finished. On my new brown FRN Endura4, the choil area looks exactly like yours. I even exchanged it with the dealer and th...

I dont usually watch TV and flip knives at the same time though - wanna keep my fingers :D

Other than legal consideration, you should also think about where you will carry it. Endura is thin and long. Thin = it carries well in front pant pocket because you can reach past it to the other stuff in the same pocket no problem. It may be a bit long for back pocket carry depending on your body/...

I am also looking at Salt line for this exact reason :)

Here is what Michael Janich said about using knives with liner lock with large cutout for SD: http://www.spydercoinc.org/forums/showpost.php?p=570691&postcount=20 Quote: From a self-defense perspective, the potential disadvantage of the relief cut is that, if the knife twists in the hand during a vi...

During a self-defense situation, I just don't trust that my own hands would not happen to hold the knife in a way to unlock the liner lock :rolleyes: Other people may retain more fine motor control and thus be able to control their knife better. If that's you then great - mili is a great SD for you....

Just do not use a mili for self-defense - as said above, liner lock/large cutout in handle makes it unsuitable for that purpose.

Edit: I take that back :o The Ti Millie has a frame lock and does not have the potential issue with the liner lock. See my later post #11.

I use the pinch action to close my M2. The only way I can get it close one-hand. This gives me a lot of peace of mind as I may need to use my Manix2 hard for SD or what not (wish that'd never happen!). I develop a dislike of knives that can close by pushing a single spot on the handle (edit to add: ...

Totally agreed on using E4/D4-style brown. It just looks so cool together with that polished blade!

Out of the current lineup, I think Manix 2 looks the best :)

Personally, I can't stand how the handle of mili looks - the blade on that knife is wicked cool though :D
