Some people are weird and don't want to own two Spydercos that use the same steel, even if that steel does everything really well. I don't understand it, but it is a reason I know comes into play for some.knivesandbooks wrote: ↑Tue Jun 19, 2018 11:41 amWhat is the appeal of the S35vn paramilitary other than variety? I understand wanting variety but what does it offer that a standard S30v pm2 doesn't? I have a few pm2s in different steels but I don't understand the attraction and fanfare of the s35vn variant.
Wonderful scales. Are they from aratech.ru?Darth_cholo wrote: ↑Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:45 pmI think the "best" one is the one you use. It's the "best" model because it comes in almost any color or steel that you want. I favor the Manix 2 models and they have almost the same variery. The other great thing is all the aftermarket customization support.
My favorite is this cruwear I just customized followed by peel ply CF M4 Wich is the more practical carbon fiber scale.
LOL, yeah, you got me, I probably overcooked that one a bit huh? But hey, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Feels better in hand than it looks. My last aftermarket PM2 scales were chamfered edges, which felt fine, but I think I'll go with contoured edges all the way from now on.
It sure does. What an excellent blade steel. Unless I'm looking specifically for maximum edge retention or something ABSOLUTELY rust proof (which is rare despite living and fishing in saltwater environments), I will be buying exclusively CRUWEAR and steels similar to CRUWEAR from now on.
That looks really nice. I like the look of something that is loved and used. And I would be glad to have more Micarta scales on my knives -- it just feels really good in hand Thanks for posting it.Cambertree wrote: ↑Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:01 amAll round, this must be my ultimate PM2:
CPM Cruwear blade, and comfy contoured black canvas micarta scales from G10.lt. I didn't like the feel of the square edged, slab sided, smooth G10 scales. These ones are perfect, with their fibrous, 'grippier when wet', worn jeans feel. And Cruwear strikes the right balance of toughness, strength, sharpenability, edge fineness and stability; and corrosion resistance for my purposes.
That is a looker! I was considering gifting my black/DLC PM2 to a friend and then buying the OD/DLC. I checked DLT's website the other night and I realized I'm too late. Oh well, too many knife purchases happening lately anyway.
