Manix XL looks pretty awesome too, might have to get one.

Wow that was impressive. I just today received a S90V Manix2 XL in the mail, what a beautiful piece. I remember passing on them when they dropped having absolutely no idea at the time what a spectacular knife it is. I think the S90V Yo2 was dropping at the same time and opted for that one.

Nice, but polished edges are only so good. Try cutting rope with that. Good for shaving or woodwork though.
- best wishes, Jazz.

I agree Jazz. Those bevels are so wide, it tells me the thickness behind the edge bevel is excessive. If it was my knife I would send it for a regrind immediately! :p

Correct...what Jazz said. ^

When I first learned to take an edge to that level of refinement I started to sharpen all my knives that way. I soon learned though that that type of edge is worthless for cutting rope, worthless for cleaning fish and far less efficient than a more coarse edge for most any edc task I perform. And coarse doesn't mean not sharp. I can finish an edge on a 1200 DMT (or even 600) and still have it pass that kind of push cutting test. The difference is that it will also rip through fibrous material where a polished edge will just slide around on the same material as if it's not even sharp.

You can always add a microbevel and have it look just like that and perform just as well. Only a few passes on whatever stones/sharpening system you use and you are good to go.

How much extra would you be willing to pay? Time is money, and the time of someone capable of putting an edge like that on a blade isn't going to come cheap. I'm guessing it would add at least $25 to the street price, but I could be off in ether direction.

Plus, as several have pointed out, an edge like that is more for show than for go.

I will often run a polished bevel but run a more coarse microbevel. There are mixed opinions on this but I feel as though the polished bevel reduces friction as the bevel wedges through matter. A bevel finished on the UF stones with a microbevel done with the medium/brown rods works well for me. It looks good and cuts good too.

Beautiful bevel but the phone book thing isn't as amazing as it seems. Go try it for yourself and you'll be surprised at how easy it is. I've done it with my Nilakka without a crazy polished bevel, just sharpened on the Sharpmaker.

Agreed. Good looking cut test but I'd be more impressed to see them cleanly slicing a single phone book page.

Yeah. Push cut a single page at least an inch away from your fingers cutting straight down the page/not away from your fingers. It's much more difficult than carving off the corner of an entire book. If you think about it, most any knife will carve wood, and even with 500+ paged that book is less dense than an equally thick piece of wood.

beware, the XL is a massive knife, you won't be able to fit your hand in your pocket when carrying it.
