What does the corrosion resistance of Maxamet compare to? M4, 52100, SB, etc....as always, thanks!

Based on my personal experience, I'd rate it slightly above CPM M4 in corrosion resistance.
It's way better than 52100 or Super Blue.

If I could choose between K390 and Maxamet, I just might choose the K390 though.
That would be my choice too if I were getting rough with the blade. Too bad k390 doesn't come in my style of work knife.

Just got the PM2 in a few minutes ago.

Well ground, no warping and the blade is centered and keen. Drops closed after a drop or two of Super Lube and the only thing I might have to keep an eye on is one of the clip screws which seemed to have less than perfect purchase initially after moving the clip to tip-up, but then tightened down adequately after applying a little more torque.

This is a sweet knife and looks like it's ready to cut for days. Into the pocket it goes.

Mine arrived today as well. Shout out to BHQ for fast shipping. Thanks!

Did some swapping around to match my #1 Native. I can’t remember when my Native blade finish was as shiny though. Or if it ever was. This new pm2’s is very nice. Pretty much mirror! Thank you too Spyderco! :spyder:

Got mine today, too. With respect to action and detent, this is the best PM2 that I have received so far, and I have a few .... compliments to Spyderco.

Also (confirming the above), compared to the first PM2 Maxamet incarnation, the blade is more polished, where the first incarnation looked almost stone-washed.

That's awesome that you have already received yours. Looks great!!! Somehow or another it takes USPS 3 days to get one from Northern Texas to mid-Oklahoma??? Pony Express maybe???

Obviously a border security issue. :p

I trust it will be worth the wait. Let us know...

Mine was supposed to be delivered yesterday but now it's going to be tonight by 8PM. :mad: That means I will have it in my hand tomorrow.

It's getting frustrating trying to track one of these down.This is the second dealer I've had an email notification setup, and haven't received an email that they had the knife in stock.

Somebody on BF asked about finish differences; thought you guys might want to see, too ... old (middle) vs. new (bottom):

Since the difference is subtle, one more now in direct sun-light.

Thank you for posting that! The middle one is exactly how my native and para3 appear. I really like the newer more polished finish.
