Re: I Have a Problem

Rule 9: Never go anywhere without a knife.

Good choice on the Manix. I thought I might like it, but I really love it. Still need to try the LW, but there’s every possibility that REX45 will solve that for me...

I'd buy the Manix in either LW or standard. I'm not so much into the PM2.

Me too!

Re: The torch has been passed.

Congrats! The other day I heard the telltale sound of my daughter opening her dragonfly to cut off tags. It was surprising how happy I felt that she was using it. Pretty cool. :)

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

The last time I commented in an oft-repeated “what Spydie do you want?” thread, the answer was: a Manix in the m390 family. And no sooner had I found a great deal on a completely different M2 sprint the 20cv M2’s dropped. The 20cv M2 has not left my pocket all year, and the other sprint is still in ...

Re: BHQs translucent "natural" G10 exclusives

I actually like the look. I wouldn’t like fully transparent scales, but I do like the translucence with natural light. And it’s cool how many different models they’ve pumped out.

I also like it from a consistency perspective - it’s almost like a sub-brand.

Re: EDC, or rotation?

Cool question: I’ve been wondering about this lately - so it feels timely. I’ve tried 5-10 models over the past several years, but for a while it has felt odd if there isn’t a Manix in my pocket. Sometimes I have a Caly as a 2nd, but pretty much always one of the pair of Manixes I own.

Re: First real spyderco for sons 18th B-day ???

I did something similar and ended up getting my son a PM2. I was wondering about the Manix, but for my son specifically the PM2 feels better to him in-hand. I’m actually liking the Manix better for me these days, even though I still like the compression lock better. So: I might check and see what he...

Congratulations! Your life is changing in one of the most worthwhile ways. Best wishes to you, your wife, and the little one. This is just fantastic. I don’t have a Chap yet - yeah, I need to change that - but I can say I personally prefer the Caly3 to the DF2. I am amazed by the DF2 design, and I s...
