Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

I got mine! Relatively painless too! :) https://i.imgur.com/gz8bHNc.jpg May I ask you a question about yours? I am presuming that yours is a piece from this current (second) run, and that if you already have it you must've bought it from the Bladeshow event. Please correct me if I'm wrong. My quest...

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

No worries man. Appreciated. These will be my first M390 knives. Pretty excited for them. That's great, M390 really is a "super" steel; good sharpening response, good corrosion resistance, and good edge retention. I find the M390 blades also have a very fine finish, which is big in my book. Enjoy!

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

I'd also like to add, as an aside, that KnifeWorks (in my home state of Louisiana) is in the process of moving into a new larger showroom. According to one staffer I spoke with, it's going to be awesome, and I'll have to try to go and check it out. After a paycheck that is lol. So that's one retaile...

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

Plus people use brick and mortar stores to see the product in person then go online and buy it cheaper somewhere else This is why I can't even go into a brick n' mortar, because I just don't think that's right to do at all, and I also can't afford their prices, so I feel like I just shouldn't take ...

Re: Bento Box M390 PM2 Re-Release on July 19th

Would like to see the Para 2 bundled with the Delica... I have little doubt that if you emailed BBS they would make a special bundle for you, but don't take my word for it, try it! :) I tried that once and they wouldn't do it so I obviously have more doubt than you do; but I would let them tell you...

The Chief is the first model in the Native family that I think I would buy. Now all I'm waiting for is the 52100/PPCF version and I'm set lol.

Re: Bento Box M390 PM2 Re-Release on July 19th

I've been eyeing these two PM2 releases. I'd like to have a larger folder, and the lock on the Manix 2 is hard for me to reach with smaller hands. Seems like the PM2 is a good candidate, and I'd like a unique color/steel combo, but I'm not sure I'll like the m390. Ive stayed away from s90v and s110...

Omg. Fourth run. I've already got one, but in my view this is even bigger news than the DLT.

Re: Sharpening with leather.

Obviously this is an excellent technique because you keep the factory geometry for a long time, including the nice looking tip right from Spyderco. I think 30 degrees inclusive is great on a PM2 in S30V. Unlike my S110V knives I previously owned they were much more aggressive. And they could handle...
