Started with 430 in stock.

Tough being on the heels of Para3 and PM2 exclusives, but it is pretty unique and that's a low number.

370 now...sloooow...man, too bad. This could have been a great exclusive. Right steel, right model, wrong grind, wrong scales. I can see what they were going for, but for an exclusive you really need to balance what you want with what will sell. Give me a St Nicks Manix 2 in Red Peel Ply G10 and DLC 4V for ~$160 and I'll buy two in a heartbeat.

I’m really close to buying it. For me it’s a $180 Exclusive, and that’s maybe a little on the high side.

Its just the scales that dont do it for me, I bought the BHQ Manix and a cruwear sprint. But these “marbled” scales on this one and the s90v just look like mixing accidents to me. If you love it, buy 2 but for me its a pass.

I always enjoy using my old buck 110's and they're hollow ground. My Chris Reeve's hollow as well. They both cut just fine. Don't see anything wrong with this either.

What the hell. I just picked one up. Hey, I don't own any Manix's with that older style hollow ground blade. It has premium steel, and a marbled carbon fiber handle. I think it's a nice looking knife. Looking forward to seeing the knife in person. :D

Now, I swear I'm done! :D
Buying Exclusives and Sprint Runs, for a while.

I'd like to take this opportunity though (Sal, if you're listening:) To beg for a Manix 2 (skeletonized) Burnt Orange G10 REX 45 DLC Knife.
That's MY goal, for 2019. :spyder:

This x 1000...I SOOOOO want some DLC Rex45 models with that Burnt Orange G10. The Manix would be perfect. It would make a great partner in crime to my DLC/M4 and DLC/52100 Manixes.

4v + CF = $200+

Eat some pork chops one or two nights next week instead of beef tenderlions. Least you'll have a nice sharp 4v steel to cut them up with.

I’m actually a flexitarian for health and budget purposes, but thanks for the advice.

Slept through the Para2 yesterday. Got plenty of that steel, so no biggy.
4V ? I'm in.

Hope the CF looks better than the video. Usually see that stuff on 3D handle designs. Flat looks a little flat.

I'm ok with a nice saber hollow grind. My old Endura's were pretty much the same and the sky didn't fall. YMMV ;)

I think the inventory counters on the website slow sales on these non-PM2, non-Para 3 exclusives. When people see them selling 1 every few minutes instead of 300 in the first 5 minutes, it doesn't trigger that FOMO (fear of missing out) for some people, and it certainly dissuades flippers from buying them. Like it or not, flippers make up a healthy chunk of exclusive sales. If I can literally see that these are going to take months to sell I am not going to buy one to try to flip for double the price.

Yep, I also received shipping confirmation. That's pretty good service I'd say. :)

Yes, good service. It also helps that they didn't sell 400 in 15 minutes.

Yeah, why show current inventory? You either want it or not. If it's available it's available.
