Nice looking scales but I'll pass on the low hollow grind. I pretty thoroughly disliked this knife until it got FFG.

Well that’s interesting! I’m not sure how I feel about that one, but I’m intrigued.

I just checked their site. They’ll be around a while at $230, ouch.

Fradon Lock Company?

Nice looking knife but it'll be a no go for me too.

EDIT: I just looked at their website. It looks like they have a decent selection of Spyderco products along with several other brands.

I love the marble cf and 4v, but that hollow ground blade is a letdown for me.

I guess the St. Nick's is not the first to feature a 4V blade!

^^^ Aren’t they still the first? They’re at least releasing theirs before the Manix 2, idk if other 4V has been released.

The SNK will be the first in your hands though. ;) I was planning on going for that one until this was announced. I'll be waiting until next week to get my 4v.

Lately, I’ve been renewing my love for the Manix2 with my foliage-green XHP version.

I’d certainly like to try a 4V Manix2, but not if it’s hollow-ground. Moreover, fancified scales on a workaday knife have no appeal to me.

So, I’ll pass.

But thanks for the heads-up. I usually get word of exclusives when it’s too late.

Wow! That is a beaut. I want one. I'm a huge fan of the Manix series. The Native and Manix were my entry to Spydercos.

I was surprised by that grind choice too. I didn't even know that was still an option.

"At the present time we are only shipping to U.S. locations, Canada, Mexico, and Australia."

They don't ship where i live so i don't have to worry about this one. Not to keen on the grind anyways and i won't deal with Ebay scalpers.

I've always wanted a Manix with that grind, but missed out on the original model. And those marbled scales, just wow! This is a great looking knife.

Low hollow grind is a no. 4V and marbled carbon fiber are a yes.

Total package = no. Like it's always said, edge geometry should match the steel and intended use. This one does not match. Close, but missed the target.

Such a shame having that grind, otherwise a very unique knife. Would definitely have bought this one if ffg.
Currently have 17 :spyder: 's in 13 different steels.
