Assuming non-skeletonized liners because it's S30v? Not that anyone buying this knife will care I suppose.

Thanks for the heads up LC! I just went and checked out the Facebook page and they had a video posted that showcased some side views of the knife.

Hi, abbazaba:
The liners for the KBPI/Willie B Manix 2 are skeletonized. As for the people buying it caring about that - you might be surprised. KBPI is a local radio station and many of their fans are Spyderco fans. Numerous members of our crew are also KBPI fans. In fact, one of the questions asked during a live facebook video yesterday with Willie B in our factory was specifically "will the liners be skeletonized?"

There is nothing more important than this one day.

Awesome! Glad to hear... It's clearly something that I care about as well :) Any chance that the regular production version of the S30v Manix2 will start appearing with skeletonized liners?

Call them today and get put on the waiting list--I just did 30 min ago. They are not collecting payment until they're closer to shipping (December) per the SFO. In addition, they will call/email to let you know they are available; at that time you provide payment info..Hope this helps :D

How can they be "one of a kind" if there are 500 of them? :p

The one Willie received is one of a kind because it doesn't have the stonewash.... like all the others will.

Actually, the regular Manix 2/G10 sells for $99. It's still a great deal for a special edition knife and it does have skeletonized liners, which is a big deal to some. I'm not a KBPI listener so this doesn't really interest me. Now if they did one for Chicago's WLUP "The Loop" FM 98 I'd be all over it! :D
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

There's a collector's club one on eBay with pictures of the actual knife and a guy on the Spyderco Freaks Facebook page posted pics of one in hand in his house earlier this month, so at least a few have gone out.
