I was curious about this also. I'd assume it's by payment date, although you know what they say when you assume. Also are you all getting your tacking info via PM, Email or what. Tracking numbers come via email from PayPal. I don't think it's by payment date either, because I payed quite late in th...

Do we know what kind of order he is going in on these? Is it by the vote or by the payment? I had asked a question the other day but got no response. I noticed that I voted that I wanted one about 3 or 4 posts down from yours. Just curious. I believe it's by join date on the forum. I could be wrong...

Clip position and tang stamp positions. Note that Japan is on the left side of the blade, rather than SPYDERCO and the steel markings as it would be on a right handed knife. On the serrated version, the serrations are also cut on the other side from those on a right handed serrated knife. Very inte...

Regarding the Manix 2 opening system:

Personally, it took me a couple of days to get the hang of. At first it was very awkward, but after some practice, it's very natural to use my thumb and forefinger. I sometimes accidentally try to close lock-backs like that. :D

Very nice. I love that SS one. :)

What makes them left-handed? Clip position?

@Simsmac Trying to mimic nature and get an open Longleaf Pine forest. This particular burn was only about 40 acres of a 500 acre total. Some of the 500 acres will be sold for timber. Turkey hunters will be happy, this is state land. I ask because a while back I was researching the red-cockaded wood...

Awesome job! I like that it's a very subdued effect. Get crackin' on that other side. ;) As for the terminology debate, anodization is the creation of an oxide on metal by an electrolytic process (using an anode and cathode). Heat coloring (aka thermal oxidization) is the method you used. However, y...

Not everyone who is in the Collectors Club can afford to keep every knife that comes out, so it's rather common practice for members to sell off those knives they were not personally looking forward to and don't particularly care for, but were contractually obligated to purchase. Most times they lo...

Jon has also said he is most likely going to have a second run of these if the demand is high (which it is), so if you don't make the first run, there's always the second batch.

I got a pm from him detailing the instructions on how to purchase it but missed the non-USA buyers pm. I saw it tonight. I went to the thread but it's locked so I'm not sure what to do now. Anybody know what the people outside of America have to do to purchase it? He hasn't decided what to do for n...
