The letter for the REX45 Sprints was written based on the original list I received. I'm sure of that, because I wrote it. The decision to add the Manix 2 Lightweight to the list was made later and Reveal 4 was updated right before it was released to add it. The letter was also updated, but not before a large quantity of the original letter had already been printed. We chose not to be wasteful or kill trees for no reason, so we continued to use the original letter.
I checked my PMs and, as far as I can tell, I never received any message from you inquiring about this or any other topic. If, in the future, you or anyone else sends me a PM and doesn't receive a timely response, please ping me with a reminder. Like most folks at Spyderco, I've got a fairly full plate.
Bottom line: The Manix 2 Lightweight in REX45 will be released as planned.
Thank you very much, for this reply and clarification Mike. I sure do look forward to this knife, and I'm happy to have you clear that up for me/us. I knew you had written it, so that's why I came to you first, and early (Thu Mar 05, 2020 9:08 am).
I had also gotten a Rex 45 Shaman, a few months (June 12th-ish) after seeing that initial paperwork in the G10 Manix 2 Rex 45 box. So once I saw it again, so long after the first time. It only added to my concern. I can sure understand though, how advanced printings can go. It happens around here from time to time as well.
Just in case you have time to double check. Attached below, is a copy of that original message. Sent to you here in the Forums messaging system. Which of course includes a timestamp.
Thanks again Mike, and have a wonderful Summer!
G10 Manix 2 Rex 45 Paperwork Text Omission

Good morning Michael.
I saw you were online this morning, which reminded me to send you a quick note. While I was thinking of it again.
On the paperwork, that came with the G10 Rex 45 Manix 2. There was no mention of the Manix 2 LW. Which I found odd. Just mentioning 7 of the 8, new Rex models. So I just chalked it up to a simple omission.
Thank you, and have a wonderful week!
