I got a second M4 Manix2, the BBS exclusive, back when M4 was harder to come by.
My second came only because I had put my first through various patina and sharpening experiments so severe that I began pining for my first one’s former pretty self.
The first one, now my one and only beater, still performs flawlessly and rides in my truck.
After this extravagance, I determined that any one of the Spydies I’ve accumulated should be able satisfy me as my only Spydie.
This thinking has liberated me from a need to duplicate a model’s particular version.
But, who’s a masochist? I still seek different versions of models I really really like. For example, I now have three different Shaman versions and will have a fourth within 90 days.
In other words, I’m fine with multiples, just not duplicates, except the one.
