CS is a terrible shop for telling us they had ~60 in November, then a couple months later updating the information to say they now only have ~50 left (how dare they sell any in the meantime!). What a scam! And not only are they updating their numbers, but they deleted their old, out of date and currently no longer accurate post so it wouldn't cause any confusion! The audacity! How dare they keep us updated in an attempt to help sell something?!? Next thing you know they'll be sacrificing virgin Benchmades to the Knife-gods of the underworld!

This one time I went into a restaurant and ordered a salad and asked about their tomato inventory. The lady told me they had dozens, when in fact I looked out back and saw they had tomato plants, therefore having an endless inventory of tomatoes. How dare them. I'll never eat another salad again.


But seriously though, let's stay realistic... I wish I had a Spyder tree that grew PM2 Sprints. :p
Going back to Caly.

Could they just have had separate shipments that made quantity updates seem unreliable?

There's more to Jeff's life and business than orange PM2's, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Could have been an honest mistake. Even f it was an evil plot, Jeff and CS has dont A LOT of generous things for us.

I guess I'm missing exactly why we, as consumers, have a right to know (or even care to know) how much inventory they have left now. If you purchased one and not buying another one especially...

If you haven't bought one yet, isn't seeing online that it's available and can be put in a cart and bought enough? It's CS's business to know how many they have left, not ours... I guess I'm just surprised as the OP of this thread how many pages have been dedicated to this discussion.

Well it's sold out now, so I hope everyone who wanted one got one.
Current favorite: Manix 2 with carbon fiber scales and cru-ware.

I'm with you Joe, I ended up buying a backup also, heck I still haven't used my frontup yet :D I will though eventually, I'm sure one day I'll be digging through the safe and come across it and be like "oh yea, forgot about this one" and take her for a spin. I just love the PM2, sometimes I wish I had 10 front pockets on my pants :p

CS has had exceptional customer service in my experience with them. So much so that they are the only dealer I buy knives from (if available). In regards to them saying they have an On-hand of 60 and months later saying they have 50 left.. I could believe it. As many have stated, this knife isnt exactly a 'best buy' and there are plenty of other options at or below that price point. To me it would make sense, I mean they just sold out yesterday 2/9/16 and the knife dropped back in October if I'm not mistaking. Thats quite a while for a knife of this status (PM2 Exclusive). All this being said I finally pulled the trigger yesterday and could possibly have gotten the last one they had :)

Not dead. CS just chose to price this knife particularly high and as such not many were interested.

So, is it stupid to pay $225 shipped for one of the orange black PM2's at this point? I just started collecting these and am interested in some of the more exclusive ones, but don't want to be retarded.

That's $50 over cost. Retarded???? No, not at all.
I have 5 Para 2s and this one is without a doubt my fav! It's the only one I have 2 of. Best action and just a bad a$$ looking knife!
I would pay it if the knife was immaculate only.

Sadly, I cannot see it first. Is on eBay. Pics look immaculate though, but....

And thanks for the reply. Seriously mulling it over.

Spideyhole,

Welcome to the Forum.
The knife is not available from the dealer , so to pay $50 over what it was sold originally is not that bad. Still, if you are not in rush, you can keep you eye on BF, may be somebody will post it for less.

My top choices Natives5, Calys, C83 Persian

The guy has a ton of pics and all show it to be pristine. As a matter of fact he has 4 for sale. They are listed for $245 but I asked if he would take $225 and he said he would. I have no way of knowing if fake or not and that is what scares me about buying off eBay. May have to pass and just not take the chance. Really want one though dang it. Oh well, better to not have a real one then pay top dollar for fake I guess.
