Sounds like a good move, are you close to Charlotte? Are you prepping food that is available for others such as myself to eat? Is it tasty?

Sorry, seems I've either reached the age that all I can think about is food or somehow those years of watching the Food Network have fried my brain.

Finally got my manix 2 and s35vn para 3 in the mail. Can't wait to check them out after work. The para 3 is so smooth the blade falls shut and jumps back out.
Yeah. Is it just my PM2 or is the PM3 noticeably smoother? I almost cant flick open my pm2 without some serious wrist action. Just picked up a PM3 LW and I can flick it open like butter without moving my wrist.

Ouroboros! Had to pull the trigger before it was too late. :D
Great price and I knew I would regret missing out on this one in a couple years when it's impossible to find!

Sorry it's just your PM2. Probably needs a little more break-in, lube, fine tuning or all of the above. The PM2 IS smooth. Some may be tighter than others out of the box; just sample variation really.

Thought so. Problem is I stripped out the pivot screw trying to loose it a tad. I forgot USA models used red loctite :eek:

Won't make that mistake twice.

Yellow Pacific Salt, serrated. Getting ready for my vacation to Greece next month :D Checked their knife laws, I'm good to go! Hopefully it gets here by Monday, it's been 2 years since I sold my first one. I regretted it, I'm very excited about owning the knife again!

Great choice!! I had one, the british racing green looks really cool. At the time I had it, ZDP was a bit hard too sharpen for me. Since then my skills have improved (though not by much tbh... :o ), I´ll have to give it another try eventually!

Well I said I wouldn't get the knifecenter exclusive manix 2 because I just got the knifeworks exclusive. But I placed an order so we'll see if it goes through.

Thanks! The Endura 4 FFG is now my favorite Spyderco, and has taken PM2's top spot. Or, a six in one half dozen in the other type situation lol.

FFG Endura is great. In my case constantly competing with the Stretch 1 for the position "best folder ever".

Probably I'll never be able to deciseivly choose a winner... :o
