Well, there was a box in the mailbox and sure enough inside is my Rex45 PM2. For one reason or other, this is one of my most anticipated acquisitions. It seems to be absolutely perfect. It will be a user. All my knives are and I enjoy rotating through them. It will replace my PM2 Cruwear that has been in my pocket and just got used to open the package! For a while, until I decide to park it and carry something else for a while.
I have to confess that I caved in and paid a bit extra to an Ebay seller (Sooner State Knives), but only $40 above expected retail. I don't have any bad feeling about this. Everything has gone wrong for me getting this through the usual channels. Among other things, I was out on a week long backpack last week when these first hit the usual sellers -- so I got and never saw until much too late various notifications of availability. For me this was important enough to get to make paying a bit extra well worth it. Sooner State seems like a fine seller too.
The game now will be to use it! Corrosion issues are minimal here in Southern Arizona. Seems plenty sharp out of the box.
There will be more coming... this was just the first wave. More to come.
It did seem like they didn't stay in stock long enough to be the whole run. I sure hope there are more
