How is ordering the knife as soon as its released resistance? buahahah, that's something you would only hear in this forum! I love it! :p

For the record, I barely made it to sleep without a spontaneous button press. hah

But... but...I successfully resisted pre-ordering for months and months and months! :) Does that not count for anything? :D

The sad reality is, if I let this one slide, and in a few months all the glowing performance reviews come out, I will hunt one down and be willing to pay an irrational price anyway.

Exactly! Right now is the easy part. Its going to suck in a few weeks when everyone is talking about how 52100 is the most awesomest stuff ever. I shall endeavor to persevere.

It could just be the video but the finish looks finer on the blade. This is a steel that would really benefit from a higher polished finish, maybe like the BD1 Manix 2 LW has. A finer finish would help reduce corrosion at least a little for those who are worried about that.

And they're already on EBAY with a $100 markup, 2 different sellers. :rolleyes:

That didn't take very long....

Club numbers 090V and 018V if Spyderco wants to track them and see how they got out so fast and on EBAY, these guys already have them in hand....

Personally if I worked for Spyderco I would already be on the phone asking them what the hell is going on since it was about an hour after they went live and already on EBAY by private sellers. (Flippers)

But that's me. ;)

Was watching this one just to see and what was up.......

The 52100 just sold out at BHQ?
I have a pre order in at KC. What gives?
I reckon BHQ got them first is all?

As far as I know, the collectors always get them first, even before the non-collectors get to dealers.
