I knew I had a MXG order coming this morning so I carried this lovely pair... FWIW the deep carry clip made for the Native5 LW also is a perfect fit for the Autonomy2 and the Tenacious/Resilience family, although you'll need to make the screw holes a tiny bit bigger for the Tenacious/Resilience. Happy Friday Everyone!

I've been on a stainless kick for the past few weeks, but I was starting to have tool steel withdrawal. Got my fix today.

Nice! I like the way the sun is hitting the metal mesh embedded in the resin

Been giving this one a run lately:

Have you gotten a chance to use that one much? I have a feeling that steel would work well with SE / CE. Bet those serrations get real sharp 👍

I was lucky. Thunderstorm rolled in when I was about three minutes from the truck.

Hey Vivi. :)

I checked my records and I’ve been using this every day at work and home for about five weeks now. Usually I like to use and sharpen a knife for about three months to get to know it.

Yeah, I think these 52100 serrations are the best I’ve tried - for my tastes obviously. Up until now, VG10 had been my favourite SE steel. The two data points in the HRC Database thread for Spyderco’s 52100 both come in at about 63 HRC, so it’s possibly the hardest steel with serrations that they offer.
(Edit: I forgot about ZDP189 SE.)

It really does get extremely sharp with barely any effort. I guess this is what you’d call a ‘sharpener’s knife’. It likes a little bit of honing/touch up sharpening every day to maintain peak sharpness. I tend to do this at least every other day with any steel anyway, so I don’t mind it at all, to have a knife which is such a pleasure to use. I received a Goldenstone a couple of days ago, and using that freehand has really made the serrations buttery smooth in their cutting action through cardboard and plastic and such. The way the SE portion bites into and cuts apart the heavy duty pallet straps that hold together wooden packing crates of weighty steel parts have made it an indispensable work tool.

After using it in the kitchen a bit in the early days, which resulted in a bit of rust around the pivot area and tight serrations, I’ve mainly relegated it for use on dry materials, mostly at work. I tend to use it with gloves on as well, so it hasn’t really developed much of a patina. I pair it with the AEB-L Urban or ZDP189 Dragonfly and use those on wet materials, or tasks like slicing vegetables from the garden for work dinners or lunches.

I also thinned out the PE grind as soon as I got it, as usual, but I think it could stand to go thinner again.

It’s really a superb knife - certainly one of the best folders I’ve used. I’ve really warmed to it. I’ve been meaning to write a review, but have been super busy with work over the whole lockdown period, so those are a few notes so far on using the CE 52100 PM2.

That’s a nice bike rig, too. :cool:

Carrying the Pac Salt today, though this pic is from thursday. Had a great day in the mountains then, took the Pac Salt on another adventure (finally discovered an - in the end actually really easy! - route up on a very remote peak after some failed attempts... :) )

Second pic (self timer) shows the last meters up to the summit... :) (Pac Salt iwb of course! ;) )

I've just been carrying the Tanto PM2 for the past few days. The only Para2 I decided to not install the Lynch deep carry clip; OEM clip makes it easier to pull out of the pocket.
