Life is short man. I hope to leave a lot of knives and things for my kids, but I want them all to be well worn and have all the character that I can put into them, so that every time my son uses one of my knives, he sees the use I put into them and thinks about me using them. He'll have a lot of memories of me and knives I'm sure.
At least one of us is just thinking in terms of the penalty for deciding we want this later, after KW sells all they've got.
I bought 2 because I know I won't be willing to pay secondary market prices. Hell, the asking price was steep enough, if it were any other model (besides maybe a Manix 2) I probably wouldn't have bought it. The fact that this could also be the only Yo 2 sprint/exclusive we ever see is also good motivation. Opportunity only knocks so many times ya know.

Oh I do, but I have to work on modifying it in the same way I did the G10 version. I know absolutely nothing about modding CF, like do I need to reseal it after grinding on it? Etc.
How dare you! =)
I'll cross my fingers for you.
I'm going to use mine.

The M390/CF Military doesn't sell for $400 and the Military is a much more popular model. I would be surprised if I saw the Manix 2 XL sell for $400.
That's why at the beginning of the thread I was wondering why they chose to do the Yo 2 and Manix 2 XL. Two mildly popular models don't seem like the best options for exclusives. A Para 2 sprint with a different CF and different steel I could see being popular because of the fan following.
I've wondered this as well, but I'm happy it happened. I think perhaps when these two knives were planned, both models were either new (the XL) or hot (Yo 2) and that may have had some influence. I do think that the XL in the long run will be a very sought after knife, but time will tell. The Yo has the ability to be really exclusive, given the scarcity of the model and being an exclusive, so that alone may drive up resale in the future. The fact that the standard Yo 2 is still hard to find is a reasonably indication of popularity, though it could also just be low production numbers too. I'm a little surprised this one isn't selling much faster.
