I would be in for 2 of these. Still carry my KW green para all the time, but love the manix platform better

Re: BHQ with a hap40 Lum Tanto exclusive?

Loving mine! VERY sharp out of the box and in excited to have a slicey thin tanto, in a tough blade steel. The clad factor just adds to the coolness, personal still not sure of the actual benefit for a folder. Mines a hair off center but no where near touching. Added a few drops of Hoppe's to the wa...

Re: OD Green PM2?

I skipped it because of the blade steel. I really liked the g10 color and a DLC blade but I just have to many PM2s

Re: Manix 2 Sprint Run

If toughness is your top priority, K390 is tougher than M390 but is a tool steel. Although in my 4 or 5 year experience with K390, it wants to patina more than rust and I live on a salty Maine island (I've gotten a spot of rust on my CTS-204P Para if that means anything..)

Re: Manix 2 Sprint Run

I am very interested in what you are proposing. My first choice for blade steel would be K390 in a skeletonized SS liner/G10 configuration. I think that would be a very stout working knife, capable of doing a wide range of tasks. Plus lefty friendly. As far as the G10 color, I would leave that to th...

Re: Maxamet or K390 Manix 2 LW Back Lock?

I would love to see K390 on the Manix 2. I think it is the perfect platform for the steel. However, I would think a hard use steel like K390 would be better suited in G10 with full or skeletonized steel liners. IMHO

Re: Mail Day + Sprint Runs

The Lefty Military is what got me into this whole Spyderco world (which I guess was just a short lived production run) But after more productions runs, exclusives and sprints than I can count, my favorite is my Blue BBS M390 PM2. The PM2 has always been one of my favorite models and this color and s...

Re: K390 Offerings

Manix 2 in any G10 would be my dream knife. PM2 would be great as well. My K390 mule has been my go-to prep knife since its release. Hands down favorite steel.

Re: Does anyone else struggle with rotating?

Personally I've noticed my "rotating" is slowing down as the years go by. I think Im just learning what it is I actually like and is right for my use. I guess thats what I set out to do when this whole thing started; find the perfect knife... That said, I'll never be a "one knife guy"

Re: How to find out about new sprint runs?

Once you hear of an exclusive coming from a particular dealer; follow and subscribe them on FB and IG. And then be prepared for a long "bathroom break" at work due to "site crashes". Its exciting!

My personal best was the BBS Blue Para 2. The fit, finish, blade steel, action, color, everything; was perfect.

Re: Super Blue??

Depends on your budget. Personally I have regretted selling my Super Blue Caly 3 for years now, but never enough to pay the price hike. Its my favorite steel in the patina category and takes an amazing edge very easily. Great for light use.

Re: What is K390 Comparable to?

Any comparison I can make would be to explicit for this forum. Its amazing. A combo of S110V's cuttablity, M4's toughness, super blue's patina and cru-wear's sharpenablity.

You really realize how clued into (obsessed?) things you get, when you go to take a picture and the chipping is so minor, you cant even get a picture of it!
