Yea the love for my PM2 has kinda faded. Which is hard to believe, because the Compression lock is great. The Military is just much better. Slicing, cutting, all around.Vivi wrote: ↑Mon Nov 26, 2018 8:35 pmI think the cost of shipping the knife back and forth (Roughly $12) would negate any extra money you'd get from the sale.
I believe it takes a couple of weeks, but I've never used this service myself.

Military ruin your love of the Para 2?
I used to love the Para 2 but decided bigger knives are more my style.
I highly doubt Spyderco would be reprofiling and sharpening S110V back to factory on a sharpmaker haha. It is done by machine. I think they just may have offered you a touch up.CXXX wrote: ↑Tue Nov 27, 2018 9:57 amWhen I was at SFO for a visit the offered to sharpen my EDC...they proceeded to sharpen it by hand on a Sharpmaker right in the showroom. So you better check how they will "factory sharpen" your knife. It may not be like the manufacturing sharpening for new production knives. In videos I have seen of production the blades are sharpened before assembly; either by a robot or belt sharpened by hand.
I saw one on ebay. The knife sold for like $152 used as a “Factory resharpen” It looked Factory new. I can get my edges exactly like it, but there are these tooling marks left behind from the robotic machine they look quite cool!
Yea I think that’s probably what I’ll end up doing.

I’d be upset about tooling marks, and I’d also be upset if I paid anywhere near $150 for a used blurple PM2. I think whoever bought that knife paid way too much, since a new one can be found for $130-$140 with a tiny bit of patience. I’d suggest you sharpen the PM2 yourself (I agree with TucsonTom) because you seem to be able to make a nice edge with what you’ve learned so far, and the tools you have. Put it up for $130 or so and make someone happy. You seemed to have gotten plenty of use out of it so far, so what’s $20 to you?
What in the hell is that? HAha. Is that a stretch? I can’t even tell. Beautiful photograph.500Nitro wrote: ↑Tue Nov 27, 2018 1:42 pmTPS
"How’s it look? Honest enough? Haha."
Yep, as a buyer of used knives, with those photos looks very good / fine to me.
Better than this photo below of someone trying to flog a rusty, worn knife lol. I asked for more/better photos, they weren't nearly as good as yours! (He also said he might send it back to the factory)
